To Mothers of Ailing Children'
Many little boys and girls in this'
town are weak, thin-legged, hollow
cheeked and bloodless. We wish every.
mother could know what our' Vinol will do
for such children. We promise that it
will create flesh, build them up and make
them 9trong, robust and rosy. If it fails
to do this we will cheerfully return all
the, money paid us for the Vinol taken. I
On these terms it1s your duty to try it.
