WHEN ASHCRAFT'S condi
. tion Powders are fed to horses
and mules, marked improvement
will be seen after the first few
doses. There is no doubt about it.
The Powders, acting directly on the
digestive organs, first thoroughly
cleanses the stomach and bowels,
correcting all disorders, and then
good healthy appetite comes nat
urally and surely. It is the most
powerful tonic and appetizer on
the market to-day, and when once
used horsemen will have no other.
Ashcraft's Powders produce that
silky sheen of coat and hair so
admired by horse fanciers. The
Powders fatten but never bloat.
Always high grade and put up
in doses-never in bulk.
By the use of three or four doses
a week your horse or mule will
not be subject to colic or any dis
ease of the stomach and bowels.
"I had an old horse that was In very bad
condition generally, ne was thin and had a
blood disease that was causing tho hair to
como off. I gavo thc horse three doses of Ash
craft's Condition Powders a day for seven days
and fed him liberally. Tho appetite improved
from the first few doses and thc animal gained
fifty-two pounds in flesh during tho week I
gavo lt three doses a day. The general health
ot thc animal was greatly Improved by tho use
of thc powders and ho was made almost a new
horse". I most heartily recommend Ashcraft's
Condition Powders, aa I know they aro a splen
did tonic and appetizer.-C. C. BIKES, Livery
