You Do More Work,
You are more ambitious and you get more
enjoyment out of everything when your
blood is in good condition. Impurities in
the blood have a very depressing effect on
the system, causing weakness, laziness,
nervousness and sickness.
( ROVE'S TASTELESS Chill TONIC
restores Energy and Vitality by Purifying
and Enriching the Blood. When you feel
its strengthening, invigorating effect, see
how it brings color to the cheeks and how
it improves the appetite, you will then
appreciate its true tonic value.
GROVE'S TASTELESS Chill TONIC
is not a patent medicine, it is simply
IRON and QUININE suspended in Syrup.
So pleasant even children like it. The
blood needs Quinine to Purify it and IRON
to Enrich it. These reliable tonic prop
erties never fail to drive out impurities in
The Strength-Creating Power of GROVE'S
TASTELESS Chill TONIC has made it
the favorite tonic in thousands of homes.
More than thirty-five years ago, folks
would ride a long distance to get GROVE'S
TASTELESS Chill TONIC when a
mcmher of their family had Malaria or
needed a body-building, strength-giving
tonic. The formula is just the same to
day, and you can get it from any drug
store. 60c per bottle.
