TELLS WHAT KIND OF IRON
Everyone's energy, vitality and
general good health depends so much
upon* the condition of their blood,
and the normal functioning of the
vital organs of the stomach, kidneys,
liver, and bowels, the slightest ir
regularity should be corrected im
Anyone troubled with their blood,
for instance, is sure to sooner or later
experience uric acid pains, weak,
lame back; lost strength; nervous
ness; headaches; dizzy spells, or
some other kindred symptoms, and
iron has become so well known as
the one best remedy everybody
should use it. The question is, in
what form? Iron is put up by the
chemist in pills, liquid solutions, and
mixed with all sorts of elements in
cluding, in some cases altogether too
much alcohol for the good of the
The cheapest, strongest, most
efficient remedy is plain, natural iron,
highly concentrated, and bottled
just as nature intended it should be
taken. It is called Acid Iron Miner
al, is sold by druggists in fifty-cent
and dollar bottles. It goes from
two to six times as far. It will help
the digestion, stomach, kidneys, and
blood. If the bowels are inactive a
good liver pill like the A-I-M Liver
Pill at 25c for a generous, size box
is recommended. People with
normal bowels should not use iron
forme'd in combination with laxa
tives. Altogether too many reme
dies contains purgatives.
To indicate how quickly Acid
Iron Mineral will cleanse the blood
and tone up the general system and
renew the wasted strength the state
ment of Mrs. N. E. Phillips of Ker
shaw, S. C., is quoted below:
i I began to be troubled with my
bowels, stomach and blood a little
over 2 years ago. It finally turned
into pellagra and at tbe end of that
two years suffering I couldn't even
walk about the house. Mrs. Ella
Hunter suggested I take Acid Iron
Mineral and after taking it six weeks
and using but four small bottles, I
am up and about doing my work and
gaining in strength every day. It
has done me more good than any
I thing I have ever tried and am glad
j indeed to recommend it to anyone
who needs a good tonic for pellagra
I or stomach trouble.
I A teaspoonful of Acid Iron Miner
al in a glass of drinking water after
meals makes an unusual, powerful,
I economical and delightfully in
vigorating tonic, appetizer, blood,
and kidney remedy.
A large dollar bottle if druggist
hasn't it will be sent prepaid on
receipt of price by the Ferrodine
Chemical Corp., Roanoke, Va.
