The week-end of development work

the Idea of starting any considerable
amount of new work until after
the weather conditions are favorable
and the roads In a condition to
haul supplies to the flleda. The present
delay will have a tendency to
make the rush to start new work all
the greater with the return of spring.

and Vigor
STECBENVILLE. Ohio.?"My husband
is 79 years old and 1 am 78 year*
of age and we owe our good health
to Vinol, the greatest strength creator
and medicine there is. When either
one of us get into a weakened, rundown
condition. Vinol has never failed
to build us up and restoro strength,
i We have often said we would not be
living now were It not for Vinol."?
MARY A. LEE.
The reason Vinol is so efficient in
; building up strength for weakened,
feeble old people is because it contains
beef and cod liver peptones, iron
and manganese peptonates and glycerophosphates.
the most successful
tonics known.
We wish every person in Fairmont
who is suffering from a weakened,
run-down, devitalized condition would
try Vinol on our guarantee to return
, their money if it falls to benefit.
