If there is one desire more Strong i iy implanted in the human breast 1han another as we reach maturer ι years, that desire is to prolong life, j Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes when ι asked how to live long replied: "Get | a fatal disease and then take care of ί yourself." , ι We want to say to the people of ! Waxahachie who are reaching ma turer years if you feel you are not as strong as you used to be you need not get a fatal disease to prolong life, but keep the digestive organs in good condition, and the bodily tis sues from wasting by taking our de licious cod liver and iron prepara tion, Vinol. Vinol is not a patent medicine, but a delicious modern cod liver preparation without oil. made by a scientific, extractive and concentra ting process from fresh cods' livers, combining with peptonate of iron all of the medicinal, healing, body building elements of cod liver oil, but no oil. Mr. .Joseph Banks of Decatur, 111., in his seventy-eighth year says that owing to Vinol he feels stronger and younger than he has for many years. There are hundreds of old people in ! this vicinity who need just such a j strength maker and tissue builder as j Vinol, and we ask them to try it on | our offer to return money if it fails to give satisfaction.
