IONED IRON BEST
Plain, Highly Concentrated Nat
ural Iron Stronger and Con
tains No Habit Forming
Drug, Narcotic or
WHOLE FAMILIES USE IT.
To u?e it just plain, ordinary,
natural iron, procurable at any drug
[store uuder the trade name of Acid
Iron Mineral, will stimulate the di
gestion and appetite, and make any
man or woman rundown and weak,
stronger and more vigorous before
a dollar bottle is half gone, and ac
cording to tests of thirty years, the
absence of alcohol and purgatives
in this remarkable remedy makes it
ideal as a non-habit forming tonic
and blood purifier.
We are bound to notice an im
provement shortly after taking Acid
Iron Mineral because it is from two
to six times stronger than the usual
chemically "prepared" tonics.
Being, a natural, medicinal iron
with no narcotic, alcohol or laxa
tive added, Acid Iron Mineral may
be given freely to the whole family
for blood, kidneys and digestion.
Be sure you get the highly concen
trated iron. The trade-mark "A-I
M" protects you. There can be no
danger of reaction, false stimula
tion or of anyone forming the hatfit.
The more you use of Acid Iron
Mineral, the less you need it.
If the bowels are normal, we
strongly advise against the' use of
any remedy containing laxatives,
but where one's bowels are slug
gish, the little A-I-M Tablets you
can get at the drug store for 25c
are admirable little liver pills and
bowel regulators and work splendid

GREENVILLE MAX SAYS VITONA
MADE NEW MAX OF HIM;
GAINED FIFTEEN POUNDS.
Greenville, S. C., is the home of
one of the happiest men in the State
to-day, and Capt. C. C. Blackman
is now telling bis many friends it is
all due to the recovery of his health
by the use of the marvelous new
medicine, Vitona. Captain Black
man, who resides at 840 Washing
ton Street, is a locomotive engineer,
runs fast passenger train No. 38,
New York to New Orleans Special,
between Greenville and Atlanta,
and is undoubtedly one of the best
known and most popular railroad
men in South Carolina. It was in a
recent conversation with J. W. Bul
lock and Barlow B. Henry that
Captain Blackman related his ex
perience with Vitona and made the
following statement which reau
thorized published for the benefit of
"When I learned about Vitona
and decided to try it, I had been
suffering with sciatic rheumatism
for five years. At toe time my
leaders felt like they were tied in
knots and the pain in my hips was
awful. After sitting down fora
while I couldn't get up without help
and for weeks I couldn't reach my
feet to put on and takeoff my shoes.
I couldly crawl into the cab of my
engine and when I did get in it was
an effort for me to work the throt
tle. I lost weight and strength con
tinually. Nothing I would eat
agreed with me and I had terrible
pains in the pit of my stomach. I
was so weak and crippled up that I
had to hobble around on a crutch and
was continually losing time from
my work. When I got to the end
of my runs I could hardly make it
home. I was so nervous and rack
ed with pain I could hardly sleep
and I tell you 1 ii*'* was more of a
burden than of pleasure.
"My condition seemed to be get
ting worse all the time and nothing
seemed to reach ray case to help me
until I began taking Vitona. A few
days ago use of this medicine prov
ed it to be just what my system
needed, my leaders became pliant
and I could stoop down and get
about easily. It is the only medi
cine that ever gave me any relief
and since taking a few bottles I
never suffer from rheumatism and
don't lose any more time from my
work. I can now hop into my cab
like a boy and handle my old en
gine as weH as I could when I first
got my run. My appetite is fine,
I can eat anything I want and en
joy it, and I have also gained fif

I shall be out of my office N from
the 11th to the 14th of the present
month; also, from the 18th to the
21st, and from the 25th to the 28th.
This is necessary in order for me to
fulfill my duties on the Board of
Examiners in optometry, of which I
am a member. I regret the neces
sity of being out so much during
the month, but as it is absolutely
unavoidable I shall ask my friends
to kindly bear with me, as I shall do
my best to attend to matters on my
return as quickly as possible.
