GDoctors know
the TRUTH about
laxatives-do you?
IN Pnon:iCaIN your iealth, tile doctor
makes no compromise with quality.
Every drug or serum lie uses must metI
strict standards of purity and strength.
Even for a little thing like a laxative,
the doctor has a definite set of require-
ments. Before giving a laxative his ap-
proval, lie considers it from every angle
to make sure that it meets his demands.
Read the specifications listed below.
Will your laxative check on every point?
It should be dependable.
It should be mild and gentle.
It should be thorough.
Its meritshould be proved by the test of time.
It should not form a habit.
It should not over-act.
It should not cause stomach pains.
It should not nauseate, or upset digestion.
Go right down the list. Ex-Lax checks
on every one of the above points. It meets
the doctor's demands of a laxative fairly
and fully. In fact, Ex-Lax is regarded
with such confidence that many doctors
use it in their own homes. Ex-Lax has
literally millions of friends. It is the most
widely-used laxative in the whole world.
Try Ex-Lax the next time you need a
laxative. Let your own experience con-
vince you of its many advantages. You
will find that Ex-Lax is mild and gentle.
You will find that it is not upsetting.
You will find that it is completely effec-
tive. Moreover, you will appreciate the
pleasant sense of well-being that follows
such a thorough internal cleansing.
Your children, too, can share in these
advantages. For the requirements set up
by the doctor are doubly important to
the sensitive system of  child.
Once you taste Ex-Lax, you'll say good-
bye to harsh, nasty cathartics. Both young-
sters and grown-ups are grateful for its
delicious chocolate flavor. All drug stores
have Ex-Lax in 10c and 25c sizes.
If you prefer to try Ex-Lax at our expense.

IF YOLR family looks for-
ward to homemade jams and
jellies, canned fruits and vegetables
from your garden's surplus, this is
the month to inventory your sup-
plies and equipment. A cherry
seeder is a big help in preparing
this juicy fruit; you can pit twenty
quarts in an hour, so they do say.
A sharp blow on the plunger pushes
the pit into one dish and tosses the
cherry into another honestly!
f.Js"HOW much sugar shall I use
p-1in making jelly?" That de-
pends on how much pectin the
fruit juice contains. This simple
device shows the amount of sugar
required for any juice. It also shows
when commercial pectin is needed.
You fill the tube with the cool
juice, then let it run through exactly
one minute. A number at the level

steam  pressure cooker is a
necessity for anyone who cans
meats and non-acid vegetables at
home. This one holds four quart
jars or five pints. A simplified
locking device makes it convenient
to use. The cooker also makes short
work of foods that ordinarily take
hours to cook. It does a complete
meal with ease. It is fine too for
sterilizing the baby's bottle.
