Year after year, decade after decade, I Beecham's Pills have been the one and only household medicine in many t M thousands of homes. In city and in hamlet, alike, they have been ■■ equally appreciated. And their popularity, to-day, is greater than ever. f They have emerged triumphant from the trying test of time. This is because they are really efficacious in doing what they claim to do. What they promise they perform. They are a true remedy and a very real relief in all cases of indigestion, biliousness, constipation, sluggish action of the Kidneys, and the nervous troubles resulting from these conditions. Hence they exert a corrective and curative action upon the whole system. In all the qualities which commend themselves to the majority, who L. ? require immediate and permanent return to health, Beecham's Pills m t stand supreme.
