to the needs of the country in

no government clearing house of information

ELDERLY PEOPLE 'i
"OLD HICKORY TONIC" IS FINE '
FOR YOU. c
Elderly people usually need a tonic.
But they should not take a tonic that '
contains strychnine, which often over s
stimulates and makes them nervous 0
and irritable. *
The old doctor who gave Old Hick- t
ory Tonic to his patients for 5fi long s
years, found that no other tonic he c
ever used would give the same good c
results as his own. Elderly people <1
were especially benefited by it. It t
seemed to agree with them better than t
any other medicine he prescribed. Old ~
Hickory Tonic is made from this old
doctor's private formula. You can
get Old Hickory Tonic, at any good
rirug store, or at any general store in
small towns and in the country.
