How is it with the children these
days? Have they plenty of grit,
courage, strength? Or are they
thin, pale, delicate? This reminds
you of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It does great things for children. It gives them
a good appetite, improves their digestion, builds up their general health. Ask
your doctor if he endorses this.
