world has progressed so far that
now people dare laugh out loud,"
but to laugh out loud presupposes
in the first place, a heart free from
care and in the next place, good di
gestive organs. We cannot laugh
if we have dyspepsia, but if you
will take the Laxative Gum Drops
every night for three or four nights -in
succession, you will find such re
lief that you can easily laugh, and
you will laugh to think how foolish
you were tc suffer so long, when
