THE FIRST STEP
TJsuallv the first indication of a
lowering of health is found in the
bowels and 4iver. sometning goes
wrong we eat too much, or work
too hard and the bowel action
weakens or the liver is sluggish.
That heavy feeling on arising in
the morning, dryness of the
throat, with bad taste, a slight
headache, dull eyes all show that
food has fermented in the intes
tines, and that the body is man
ufacturing poisons instead of
good blood. ,
Clear it- all out. Give the
stomach and bowels a fresh start.
Encourage the liver to go to
work. Manalin does all of this,
without griping .or weakening.
It's the ideal laxative and liver
tonic, because it follows Nature's
plan, without discomfort, inflam
mation or forming a habit. Con
stipation may be overcome with

How a' Man Who Lan3ed On
Wood Pile And Was Sore From
Head to - Foot Founds
' Quick Relief.
Once upon a time Edwin Pateam,
who livesin the guiet, pretty hamlet of
Wendel Depot, Mass., climbed up Into
a loft to get some building material,
just as many another man living In the
country must often do. Suddenly he
slipped and fell. Ten feet below was a
pile of wood, knotted and gnarled. It
was a nasty tumble, and Mr. Putnam
was injured painfully in the back, he
was covered with bruises, and was sore
from head to foot.
The next day he bought a bottle ot
Sloan's Liniment which had been re
commended to him. Within a very few
hours the soreness had vanished and
the lameness had disappeared. He was
an active man once more.
Sloan's Liniment can fa nKfatn
