A letter lias recently been received In'
the specialists at present introducing the
new tonic. "Tona Vita," to the Richmond
public. The letter is from Mr. Mason
Kraywell, residing on Thirty-third Street,
an ex-steamship engineer, who is well
known in this city, and is as follows:
"For the past ten years I had been
troubled with stomach trouble and ner?
vousness, and about three years ago suf?
fered an attack of nervous prostration
following a general physical breakdown,
j I never seemed to regain any degree of
strength, and could hardly get about. I
; was miserable, and tried almost every
I remedy 1 beard of. I also consulted sev?
eral physicians and was under their care,
I but did not receive any lasting benefit.
! "Some time ago a friend told me about
j 'Tona Vita,1 ami called my attention to
j the enthusiastic testimonials then appear
i itig in the daily papers. I decided to give
jit a trial, and I mil happy to say that,
? although 76" years of age, I am now feeling
like a man of fifty, i cat and sleep well
land can now walk for a long distance
; without becoming tired. 1 highly recom
j mend this tonic."
"We an- meeting more people each
day," said one of tin- specialists, "and the
I sale of the tonic in Richmond is now very
I large. I have recently received reports
I from other cities, and the sale in all of
them is tremendous. In fact, the dc
[ maud has been so large and so sudden
I that it has been imtiossiblc to prepare the
j tonic fust enough to take rare of It. The
I Approved Formula Company is receiving
Wires from druggists everywhere asking
for the medicine, but at present it is itn
|>ossiblu in till these orders. This demand
is all the more remarkable when you con?
sider thai the totiii was unknown on this
side of the water until about a year ago.
"No medicine c ould be so tremendously
successful unless it had a mission to per?
form, and was accomplishing that mission.
'Ton.i Vita' i- accomplishing its mission.
It i- making tired out, debilitated! ner?
vous men and women happier, healthier
