A heavy odd* is made easier with the aid of FORCE— . j
for in this Tonic is to be found additional strength.
Great achievement requires fit physical condition. Hope
of accomplishment in any line, whether physical or men

To produce the highest results in efficiency, the various
parts of the body machinery must co-ordinate—must
work in perfect unison. It is this very effect of harmoni- y
