Every man and woman who would enjoy good health this Spring, and would have such life and strength as not to be a slacker, but equal to anything, must have an abundance of iron in the blood. The new iron tonic, Peptiron, combines this valuable metal in medicinal form so that it is easily absorbed and readily assimilated. Peptiron also includes pepsin, nux, celery, gentian and other tonics,— nerve helps, digestives and carmina tives—a health-giving medicine in the form of chocolate-coated pills, con venient and pleasant to take. It has given entire satisfaction in the treat ment of anemia or thin blood, pale ness, neurasthenia, nerve debility, brain-fag. One or two Peptiron after each meal will quickly tell a story of marvellous results. Peptiron is prepared by its origi nators, C. I. Hood Co., Lowell, Mass., in one of the best-equipped labora tories in the world. Get it today.
