Tells Mothers What To Do For
"My fourteen-year-old daughter was
very thin and delicate. She had a
bad cough so that I became very much
alarmed abo.ut her health. She was
nervous and did not sleep well, had
very little appetite and doctors did
not help her. Having heard so much
about Vinol, I decided to give it a
trial. It has helped her wonderfully.
She can sleep all night now without
coughing once; in fact, her cough is
gone. Her appetite is greatly im
proved and she has gained in weight.
Vinol is a wonderful medicine, and I
will always keep it In the house. I
wish every mother knew what Vinol
gill do for delicate children." Mrs.
Wm. Archer, 223 Broadway, Long
Branch, N. J.
This declicious cod liver and iron
preparation without oil is a wonderful
body-builder and strength-creator for
both young and old. We promise
to give back your money in every
such case where Vinol does not
benefit. This shows our faith in Vinol,
