they haven't enough Iron in their blood to

years, while the patient suffers untold agony.
If you are not strong or well, you owe it to
yourself to make the following test: See how
long you can work or how far you can walk
without becoming tired. Next, take two Ave
jrrain tablets of ordinary nuxatcd Iron three
times per day after nn als for two weeks. Then
