Instead of leaving constipation to cure itself or trying some make-shift diat gives but temporary relief, you should*take Chamberlain's Tablets for the stomach and liver.

SPLENDID FELLOWS GERMAN TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
SPLENDID FELLOWS GERMAX TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIANS.. An eloquent testimony to tho man ner in which prisoners of war were treated by tho British is contained in tho following extract from the diary of a Germ in prisoner, who was captur ed in Palestine on July lt: After being fired at in front by the British and in thc rear by the Turks, we were captured on July l-l by Aus tralians. They were a splendid lot of fellows, and treated us very well. The average Englishman on this front is a thoroughly decent chap, and the ' treatment is excellent. We had-very heavy losses, and I should imagine that the Asia Corps had practically ceased to exist. I was surprised at our good treat ment. I shall never believe any more newspaper yarns about the brid way in which the British treat their pris oners of war. I must say that I am beginning to appreciate tho British more from dav to day; they arc all thorough gentlemen. We aro getting more food than we can eat, and the only thing lacking is tobacco.
