" Ayer's Cathartic Pills for over thirty
years liavo kept me in good health,
never having had a sick day iu all that
time. Before I was twenty I suffered
almoft continually as a result of con
stipation from dyspepsia, headaches,
neuralgia, or boils and other eruptive
diseases. When I became convinced
that ninfi-tcntlis of my troubles were
caused by constipation, I btgan the use
cf Ayor's Pills, with the most satisfac
tory results, never - having a single
attack that did not readily yield to this
remedy. My wifo, who had been an
invalid for years, also began to use
Ayer's Pills, and her health was quickly
restored. With my children I had no
