OHIO WOMAN'S WISH
For Tired, Weak, Nervous Women !
Belief on taine, Ohio?"I wish every
tired, weak, nervous woman could have \
Vinol, for I never spent any money in 1
my life that did me so much good as
that I spent for Vinol. I was weak, i
tired, worn out and nervous, and Vinol!
made me strong, well and vigorous after
everything else had failed to help me,
and I can now do my housework with
pleasure."?Mrs. J. F. Lamborn.
We guarantee Vinol, our delicious cod j
liver and iron tonic, for all weak, rundown,
nervous, debilitated conditions.
Gilder & Weeks, Druggists, Newberry,
Whenever You Need a General Tool;
