Magic elixir!; 100 YEAR JOURNEY THROUGH CHRISTMAS.

NAPOLEON may have been dead nearly 80 years but his famous comment that "an army marches on its stomach" provided a handy advertising tool for Mother Seigel's digestive Syrup during the the Christmas of 1908.

Manufacturers of the magic elixir interpreted the great general's words as meaning that indigestion led to slow starvation which was why half the people who were suffering from this chronic condition would "find life a daily song" if they set their digestion right.

Carter's Little Liver Pills were also the perfect solution for a torpid liver, furred tongue or general biliousness while good old Beecham's Pills, still going strong today, also promised the answer to a merry and healthy Christmas and would quickly correct the organs of the digestion.
