We Back up Our State
ment with Our Personal
Reputation and Money
We ace so positive that we can
relieve constipation, no» matter how
chrehric it may be, that we offer to
furnish the medicine free of all cost
if ff? fail.
We thnk that it is worse than
Uflelrss to attempt to cure constipa-
tion with cathartic drugs. Cathar
tics may do much hntm. They
may cause a reaction, iiritatr and
weaken the towels, and make con
stipation more chronic.
Constipation is often accompain
ed and may be caused by weakness
of the nerves and muscles of the
large intestine or colon. To expect
a cure you must therefore tone up
aud strengthen those parts and res
tore them to healthier activity.
The discovery of the active prin
ciples of our remedy Involved the
labor of skiltul research chemists.
This remedy produces results such
as are ex|«cted from the best
known intestinal tonics, and it is
particularly prompt iu us results.
We want you to try Rexall Or

are exceedingly pleasant to take
aud are ideal for children. They
