For Overwrought Nerves

The important duties and responsibilities which fall on the shoulders of the nurse, often cause a case of "nerves," hampering her work and hindering her efficiency. Overwrought nerves usually accompany a lowered vitality, and need a renewed supply of the vital phosphatic elements to restore their tone and balance. For this purpose, Horsford's Acid Phosphate, a solution of the acid phosphates of calcium, sodium, potassium and iron is a prompt and helpful agent, as it contains the phosphates in a form readily assimilated and agreeable to take. It revives the nerve and brain cells, and assists the restoration of normal conditions in a natural and efficacious manner.

It's both comforting
and refreshing

The frequent and generous use of Colgate's Talc is often
surprisingly conducive to the comfort of the bedridden.
Its cooling and soothing action renders it especially service-
able in the case of restless or fretful patients.



When sprinkled bountifully over both the body and bedlinen of a febrile patient, it tends to palliate the weariness that makes "each dragging hour seem a wakeful eternity." It is in the sick-room that the superiority of Colgate's Talc so often becomes a matter of comment.
