The Straight Tip.
If you want to dream the winner
Of the Caulfield or the Cup,
Be reckless with your dinner,
Also careless how you sup.
But for indigestion chronic,
With its train of lesser ills.
The tip is Laxo-Tonic,
Perfect pick-me-up of Pills.
Laxo-Tonic Pills. 10 1/2 and 1s 6d — For sale by C. J. Christie, Universal Provider.
A stewardess looked with dismay
On passengers ill every day;
Said she, “This looks chronic,
I’ll give Laxo-Tonic.”
Soon all were on deck bright and gay
Laxo-Tonic Pills. 10 1/2 and 1s 6d — For sale by C. J. Christie, Universal Provider
