The value of vigor is inestimable. It is the
Guality that distinguishes the individual who is fit,

man that makes for success. Without it his chances
grow weak. If you would be victorious over
circumstances you must be vigorous.
If you would be vigorous, your. blood must be'
free from impurities, your digestive organs and the
functions of nutrition must be working naturally
and the whole system must be perfectly nourished.
