SALLOW COMPLEXION comes from bilious
impurities in the blood, and the fault lies with the
liver. It is torpid.
(THE POWDER FORM)
Is the greatest of all liver medicines. Its powerful purifying and
strengthening influence is at once apparent in an improved appetite,
good digestion and a feeling of strength and energy in the body.
When the system has been put in order the yellow cast in the skin
gradually disappears and the complexion becomes clear and healthy.

should be held monthly to bring the
doctors in close social as well as ethical
relations. Dr. Harry Walters, the
youngest member of the fraternity,

was "Ideals," and with eloquence,
