Thirty years ago old-faehionpd cod liver oil had to be forced down a patient’s throat. Invalids could not take it, and children wouldn’t. But the doctors prescribed it, and it had to be taken by force. Y t it cured people where enough could be taken into the system, for it has ever been the greatest of all tissue builders and general recon structors known to medicine. We are now anxious to have every one know that Vinol is a new form of this very old and valuable remedy, containing in a concen trated form all the medicinal ele ments of cod liver oil, actually taken from fresh cods’ livers, but by an extractive and concentra ting process it is made without oil or grease, and it is aB delicious to the taste as a fresh orange. Vinol does not upset the stom ach like old-fashioned cod liver oil and emulsions; its strengthen ing and healing properties are re markable, and both doctors and patients are delighted with its ac tion. Many wonderful cures right here in Salisbury, N. C., have been effected by its use, and we ask all of our customers to try Vinol on our guarantee to return money, every time it fails to make rich, red blood, increase the appetite, cure stomach troubles, give strength and renewed vitality tc the aged, run-down, tired and de . bilitated, or cure chronic colds, ; hacking coughs or bronchitis.— The T.

Not a remedy that will straighten the distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor turn bony growths hack to flesh again. That is impossible. But I can now surely kill the pains and pangs of this deplorable disease. In Germany—with a Chemist in the City of Darmstadt—I found the last ingredient with which Dr. Shoop’s Rheumatic Remedy was made ft perfected, dependable prescription. Without that last ingredient, I successfully treated many, many cases of Rheumatism; but now, at last, it uni formly cures all curable cases of this! heretofore much dreaded disease. Those sand-like granular wastes, found in Rheumatic Blood, seem to dissolve and pass away under the action of this remedy as freely as does sugar when added to pure water. And then, when dissolved, these poisonous wastes freely pass from the system, and the cause of Rheumatism Is gone forever. There is now no real need—no actual excuse to suffer longer with out Jielp.
