F O7R MALARIA,
CHILLS AND FEVER.
The Best Prescription Is Grove's
Tasteless Chill Tonic.
The Formula Is Plainly Printed on Every Bottle,
So That the People May Know Just
What They Are Taking.
Imitators do not advertise their formula
knowing that you would not buy their medi
cine if you knew what it contained. Grove's
contains Iron and Quinine put up in correct
proportions and is in a Tasteless form. The
Iron acts as a tonic while the Quinine driv6cs
the malaria out of the system. Any reliable
druggist will tell you that Grove's is the
unginal and that all other so-called ",Taste
less" chill tonics are imitations. An analysis
ot other chill tonics shows that Grove's is
superior to till others in every respect. You are
not experimenting when you take Grove's-its
superiority and excellence having long been
established. Grove's is the only Chill Cure sold
throughout the entire malarial sections of the
United States. No Cure, No Pay. Price, Sot
