you are NOT
— vours
Are you being denied the happiness that is due you in life?
Your s elf
IT is easy to abuse our golden life-given body,
but Nature has a way of signaling danger.
If heeded, graver troubles may be avoided.
That tired, exhausted feeling, lack of appetite,
aches and pains, flabby flesh, skin troubles—all
speak of a body weakness—a lack of the normal
count of red-blood-cells.
Every normal person's blood should contain
about 5,000,000 red corpuscles to the cubic mil
limeter—those vitalizing, tiny red-cells which
give blood its color and are carriers of nourish
ment to every part of the body. It is dangerous
to let the red blood count remain below normal.
With an increase in the red-blood-cells, you
will be on the right road to Health. This is
Nature’s way to body power and to clear skin.
Naturally, with your strength restored, it is
easier to fight disease and infection; to enjoy
your food and to sleep soundly. When firm flesfr
takes the place of that which was once flibftJt
you will feel strong—your nerves will becom-s
steady—more happiness and friends will follow.
S.S S. has been a blessing to millions of peo
ple. It helps Nature increase the red-blood
cells. It promotes healthy body building. It is
time-tested and has a successful record of over
100 years back of it.
You owe it to yourself to try S S S. It is
easily assimilated. Pleasant to take. It is on
sale at all drug stores in two sizes. Ask for the
larger size. It is more economical. ©s.a.s,c>
