DANGER AFTER GRIPPE
Lies in Poor Blood, Cough and
Worn-Out Condition.
Grippe, pleurisy, pneumonia are
greatly to be feared at this season.
To prevent grippe from being fol
lowed by either pleurisy or pneumo
nia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system.
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
delicious cod liver and iron prepara.
tion without oil, and get your
strength and vitality back quickly.
W. W. Lake of Aberdeen, Miss.,
says: Grippe left me weak, run-down
and with a severe cough from which
I suffered for a long time. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seem
ed to do me any good until I took
Vinol from which I received great
benefit. My cough is almost entirely
gone and I am strong and well again."
Try Vinol with the certainty that
if it does not benefit you we will give
back your money.
