nearly an ounce of waste material
must be carried out, else It ferments
and forms ptomaine-like poisons which
are absorbed Into the blood.
Just as necessary as It Is to clean
the ashes from the lurnace each day,
before the fire will burn bright and

the Inside organs of the previous day's
accumulation of iadigestible waste and
body toxins. Men and women, whether
sick or well, are advised to drink each
morning, before breakfast, a glass of
real hot water with a teaspoonful of
limestone phosphate hi It, as a harm harmless

stomach, liver, kidaeys and bowels the
Indigestible material, waste, sour bile
and toxins; thus cleansing, sweeten sweetening

Into the stomach. v
Millions of people who had their turn
at constipation, bilious attacks, add

nights have become real cranks about
the morning Inside-bath. A quarter
pound of limestone phosphate will not
cost much at the drug store, but Is
