LANGLEY'S
MILD APERIENT,
 OR	
ANTI-BILIOUS PILLS,
-FOR-
DISORDERS OF THE STOMACH & BOWELS,
GIDDINESS, SICK HEADACHE, SC.
THESE PILLS are strongly recommended as one of the best Medicines for Bilious
Complaints, Disorders of the Stomach and Bowels, Giddiness and Sick Headache,
occasioned by Indigestion, free living, etc., and are so perfectly innocent in the composition (although truly effectual.) that they may be taken by Children and Females of the
most delicate constitution; they have also been found exceedingly serviceable in expelling most description of worms, etc.
The peculiar efficiency of these Pills lies in promoting a due secretion of Bile- -a
redundancy of which most frequently produces Heartburn, Giddiness, Nausea, Headache,
loss of appetite and rejection of food ; they will be found highly beneficial in all Dyspeptic affections, Spasms of the Stomach and Bowels, by which the functions of the Viscera
become impeded.
The qualities of these Pills are neither impaired by time or diminished by climate ;
they require no confinement or alteration in diet; and their operation, assisted by moderate exercise, will promote a healthy action of the Liver and remove those obstructions
which generally produce the above complaints. ? ai
The salutary effects produced in all cases for which they are recommended, render
them worthy of the notice of travellers in particular, and to persons who experience
unpleasant sensations in the morning after immoderate indulgence in the luxuries of the
table.
DIRECTIONS.
The usual dose for a grown person is two or three Pills ; but as constitutions vary,
some will find one sufficient, which should be taken at bed time. To those who are
troubled with habitual costiveness, it will be requisite to take one or two at bed time
every night, for a short time, and then every second or third night, so as to leave them
off by degrees.

TESTIMONIHLS.
Victoria, B. C, April 23rd, 1891.
Messrs. LANGLEY & CO.
Dear Sirs—Having been troubled with a cough and cold for the past three months,
and having tried numerous kinds of cough mixtures without any beneficial effect, I was
induced to try your Balsam of Aniseed. I was almost immediately relieved and am now
entirely cured. (Signed), W. ROYLE.
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 25th, 1892.
Messrs. LANGLEY & CO.
Dear Sirs—My little girl has been troubled with a severe cold, coughed all night,
and to all appearances was in the first stages of consumption. After trying several remedies without any benefit, I was recommended your Balsam of Aniseed, which has completely cured her. (Signed), H. T.  FORDE.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 10th, 1892.
Messrs. LANGLEY & CO.
Dear Sirs—Having been recommended by a friend to try Langley's Balsam of Aniseed, I wish to tell you how much good it has done my three children, who had very
bad coughs. Two bottles completely cured them, and I cannot speak too highly of its
value.    Every mother should try it for her little ones.   .
(Signed), MRS. J. KNIGHT.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 29th, 1892.
Messrs. LANGLEY & CO.
Dear Sirs—I have great pleasure in giving you this testimonial for your Balsam of
Aniseed, having used it for many years in my family, for Coughs, Cold and Bronchitis.
For Bronchitis I have found it excellent, one or two bottles effecting a cure.
(Signed), WILLIAM MOORE.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 29th, 1892.
Messrs. LANGLEY & CO.
Dear Sirs—I was attacked with a very severe Cough and Cold in 1889, and tried
everything I could hear of; nothing helped me until I was recommended to try your
Balsam of Aniseed. I consider it the best cure for Bronchitis, Coughs and Colds, and
especially for Whooping Cough. I always take a supply with me when I go to Hampton, Virginia. (Signed), W. C. WHITE.
Victoria, B. C, March 4th, 1892.
