According to government report of 1908 “The Secret is out at last—the Southerner, contrary to cunent opinion is not lazy, shiftless, indifferent or careless. “He is sick” he South is afflicted with and harbors that most dreaded treacherous, nd destructive of all diseases Anemia, Pernicious Anemia. The , average Southerner is a sufferer of this health destroying parasite | which destroys the red bloood cells producing an impoverished con-/ fition of the blood; characterized by extreme pallor, general debility, I weakness, loss of vigor, lack of ambition, and general undermining * jf vitality. The climate and atmospheric conditions destroy the I vitality. Let him get over it. Get rid of it. Get well, and he is' >ood physically as the best American oan boast. If there is health J if the slightest degree in your system, ‘‘WAKE IT UP I CALL ‘IT I FORTH. PULL YOURSELF TOGETHER 1 MAN, WOMAN OR j DHILD; all can and should be well. To neglect yourself is to reflect upon the wisdom of your Maker. Nature intends all humanity to Jnjoy a full measure of health and vigor.
