It should therefore be employed with a view to ultimate // restoration of natural peristaltic action // NOTE - As Fluid Cascara Sagrada Aromatic P.D. & // Co. has been established in the market for many years, // we have not thought it wise to change its flavour to that // of the similar product of the U.
