said Alson B. Cole to be mentally de
fective to a degree that he had pur

This Tells You How to Get
Benefit of the Best Senna
Finest Grade of Egyptian Senna Leaves used in
compounding Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.
PROMINENT Importers and
wholesale dealers in crude
drugs and medicinal herbs
gathered from all parts of the
world do not hesitate to say that
the market for the better grades of
medicinal herbs, roots, oils, etc,
is practically confined to the lead
ing manufacturers of the so-called
package medicines, who buy only
the very best, and that the manu
facturers of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin are the largest users of the
best grade of Egyptian senna
leaves in the world. '
The potency of a tea brewed
from senna leaves to relieve con
stipation has long been recognized,
not only by the medical 'profes
sion, but by the public generally:
in fact, senna has been known and
used in medicine for more than
five centuries. The cheaper
grades of senna, such as are usu-
ally sold at retail, have, however,
a tendency to gripe and cramp
which makes their use unpopular
with most people
In Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
the finest Egyptian senna is com
bined with pepsin and other valu
able agents, essential oils and pure
cene sugar syrup to make an ex
ceptionally valuable tonic-laxative
for the relief of constipation and
resulting disturbances of the
stomach and bowels. The com
plete formula is plainly printed in
English, French, and Spanish on
every package. Thousands who
formerly bought an inferior grade
of senna leaves now use Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin instead. It
is sold in drug stores everywhere.
, In spite of the fact that Dr. Cold
J wtU's Syrup Pepsin is thelargcst selling
liquid laxative in the world, there
being over 6 million bottles sold each
year, many who need its benefits have
not yet used it. If you have not, send
your name and address for a free trial
bottle to Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 511
Washington St., Monticello, Illinois.
