Makes poor horses and mules fat without bloating. It
does this by first thoroughly cleansing the system oi
all impurities, allowing perfect assimilation of food,
thereby creating solid muscle and fat.
Horses and mules improve in appetite and spirits
after the first few doses, the hair sheds, and the new
coat is always sleek and glossy.
Ashcraft's Condition Powders arc packed in doses,
without "filler," and good for horses and mules only.
It is a most powerful tonie and appetizer, being the
formul?e of a practical veterinarian of over a quarter of a century's
experience. It is easily the foremost remedy in its class on thc
American market to-day. . Price 25 cents package.
