writes: "I wish I could Induce every
mother who has a weak, sickly child
to try that delicious cod liver prepar
ation, Vinol. Our little daughter was
pale, thin and sickly.
"We tried various medicine3, but
without any benefit whatever, and
she could not take cod liver oil or
emulsions, as they nauseated her and
upset her stomach.
"Learning that Vinol contains all
the medicinal and strength-creating
properties of coil liver oil, but with
out the disairreeable oil, we decided to
try It, and the results were marvel

hea'th and strength.
"We have never sold a medicine
