We can get along on the precepts they
set for us;
Half-starved and half-frozen we still will survive.
Put not an economist offers to get for
A thing that repays us for being
We know w'e’ll exist on a few thousand calories,
But what a big hit these good people would make.
Ii only they d show' us some way that our salaries Would now and then buy us a steak!

Enjoy life! Remove the liver and bowel poison which is keeping your head dizzy, your tongue coated, breath offensive, and stomach sour. Don’t stay bilious, sick, headachy, constipated and full of cold. Why don’t you get a box of Cascaras from the drug store and eat one or two tonight and enjoy the nicest, gentlest liver and bowel cleansing you ever experienced. You will wake up feeling fit and fine. Cas-carets never gripe or sicken like salts, pills and calomel. They act so gently that you hardly realize you have taken a cathartic. Mothers should give cross, sick, bilious or feverish children a whole Cascaret any time—they act thoroughly and are harmless.
