There are hundreds of nervous, run

who are hardly able to drag around and
wno we are sure would be wonderfully
benefited by Vinol as Mrs. Becker was.
The reason Vinol is so successful in
building up health and strength in such
cases is because it combines the medici
nal tissue building and curative elements
of cod's livers together with the blood
making, strengthening properties of
come iron. We ask every weak, ner
vous, run-down man or woman in this
vicinity to try a bottle of Vinol on our
guarantee to return their money if it
