frequency, is the direct cause of much
disease. When the bowels become
clogged with refuse from the stom

under the name of Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin.
The Hon. John D. Keister of Bran
dywine, W. Va., who has represented
his district in the State Legislature
for six years, writes that he uses Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin and finds it
a splendid laxative, easy to take and
mild, yet positive, in its action, and
that it should be in every household
for use when needed.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is sold
by druggists in all parts of the United
States and costs I only fifty cents a
bottle. It contains no opiate or nar
cotic drug, does not gripe, and is
recommended as a family laxative,
mild enough for the tiniest babe, yet
sufficiently powerful to act easily on
the strongest constitution.
To avoid imitations and ineffective
substitutes be sure to get Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin. See that a fac
simile of Dr. Caldwell's signature and
his portrait appear on the yellow car

A trial bottle, free of charge, can be
obtained by writing to Dr. W. B.

Relatives Usually Respond
In Blood Transfusion Cases
The relief of patients by transfusion
of blood is not a serious problem in
Omaha hospitals. Usually, when
transfusion is necessary, relatives or
friends respond with their life blood.
Only occasionally is it necessary to
pay the person whose blood is trans
iused to save a life.
Whether the person is a relative,
friend or stranger, his blood is care
fully tested before he contributes to
the life of another.
In a few cases those whose veins
were tapped were paid $25 to $50 for
this service. Most of the patients
are anemirs.
In some of the large cities of the
country subjects are selected from
such institutions as workingmen's
hotels or charitable shelters. On an
average one out of four are accepted.
