You Can Tell The People Who Have lrqn In Their Blood Strohg, Healthy f Vigorous Folks Doctor Nnyn Ordinary Xuxnlrd Iron Will Mnke Nervous Rundown People 200 Stronger lu Two Week.' Time In Many Cases. . NEW YORK. N. Y.-"Ono glance la enough to tell which 'people have Iron In their bipod," said Doctor Bauer, a specialist of this city in a recent dis course. They are tho ones that do and dare. The others aro in the weakling class. Sleepless nights spent worrying over supposednilments, constant dosing with put out medicines and. nurcotlcs for nervous weakness 'stomach, liver or kidney disease anil useless attempts to brace up with strong coffee or other stimulants are what keep them suffer lug and vainly longing to be strong. Their real trouble Is Inck of Iron in tho blood. Without Iron the blood has no power to change food Into living tissue, nnd therefore, nothing you eat does you any good, you don't get the strength out of it. Tho moment iron Is supplied the multitude of dangerous symptoms dlsuppear. I have seen doens of nervous, tunilown people who were ailing all the lime, double and even triple their strength and endurance and entirely get rid of every sign of dyspepsia, liver and other troubles In from ten to fourteen diivs time sltuplv bv taking Iron in the proper foim. Ami thin, nfter they had In some cases been doctoring for months without any benefit If you are not strong or well you owe It to yourself to mako the following test: Bee how long you can work or how far you can walk without becoming tired. Next take two tlve'graln tablets of ordinary nuxatod Iron hrce times per dav after meals for two weeks. Then test your strength again and see for yourself how' much you have gained. There Is nothing like good old Iron to put color in your cheeks and sound, .henlthv flesh on your bortes. But you must tnke Iron In a form that can bo easily absorbed and assimilated like nuxated Iron If you want It to do you any good, otherwise It may prove worse than useless. NOTE Nm&leil Iron reromirwnded a bene by Dr. Hauer, Is on of the iifiwer orKanle Iron (oinooiiiulK. t'nllke the oldrr Inorganic Iron product, It la entllr assimilated. to not Injure the leelli, make them black, nor upset the stomach on the contrary , It In a most potent remedy.
