REPAIR YOUR RADIATOR Doctor, this is the season to look after your leaking radiator. Bear in mind that "X" Liquid is something remarkable. It not only repairs small leaks in the radiator but leaks everywhere in the cooling system. “X” has repaired cracked cylinders making them as good as new and saving hundreds of dollars in repair costs. “X” Liquid eliminates rust and scale and in that way increases gasoline mileage, decreases oil consumption and upkeep costs. One 750 can will repair a Ford radiator, and make it leak-proof. Larger size $1.50. Ask your dealer for "X" Liquid radiator medicine.

Where Edema Is Attendant and where the heart, liver and kidneys are involved, Anedemin tablets may be prescribed with absolute freedom and safety and satisfactory results anticipated. These tablets are a combination of the active principles of apocynum, strophanthus and squill with sambucus as adjuvant, and their action immediately eliminates effusion, controls and increases the power of the heart, liver and kidneys to perform their function and affords the patient prompt relief and comfort. With continued use, Anedemin strikes at the root of the trouble removing the cause. Being non-toxic, not cumulative and not a gastro-intestinal or renal irritant, Anedemin may be administered at frequent intervals in large doses and continued an indefinite time in small doses if necessary. The patient does not have to be watched nor kept recumbent as in the administration of many drugs of this class. Physicians may obtain samples of Anedemin and literature containing exact formula by writing the Anademin Chemical Company, Chattanooga, Tenn.

CAUTIONI-Whenever the true merit of a preparation is authoritatively established, imitation is sure to make its pernicious appearancc. To counteract the injurious results of another of these fraudulent pro ceedingsmin this instance affecting firm name and reputation-Sander & Sons have been compelled to appeal to law, and in the action tried before the Supreme Court of Victoria, the testimony of a sworn witness revealed the fact that this witness suffered intense irritation from the application to an ulcer of the defendant's product, which was palmed off as "just as good as Sander's Eucalyptol.” Sander & Sons had the satisfaction to obtain a verdict with costs against this imitator, who is perpetually restrained from continuing his malpractice. Dr. Owen, in a report to the Medical Society of Victoria, and Dr. J. Benjamin, in the Lancet, London, both denounced, as others did before, on the strength of negative results, the application of unspecified cucalyptus products.

This forms convincing proof that only an authoritatively sanctioned article can be relied on. SANDER & SONS' EUCALYPTOL

(Ecalypti Extract) 1. Has stood the test of Government investigation.

2. It was proved at the Supreme Court of Victoria by experts to be an absolutely pure and scientifically standardized preparation.

3. It is honored by royal patronage.

4. It always produces definite therapeutic results.

Therefore, to safegaurd the physicians' interest and to protect their patients, we carnestly request you to specify "Sander's Eucalyptol” when prescribing eucalyptus.
