HEATHFUL VICOR $
IN STRONG BLOOD I
Rich, Red Blood Built Up $
by PeptouMangan-f $
Liquid or Tablet
Blood is strong and fulr of life
giving vigor when there are plen
ty of red cells in it. Anaemic
people have little strength because
there are not enough red cells in
the blood. It is thin and watery.
Weak blood makes faces pale,
pulls dowvn the strength and leaves
the body tired, weak, and sickly.
A course in Gude's Pepto.Man
gan restores weak blood to its
normal strength. Taken regular
ly for a while it adds red c4els to
the blood. Then with good blood,
the strength and vigor of health d
return. There is pleasure in liv
ing, with good blood running 4
through the veins. Gude's Pep
toMeauganl is put up in liquid 4
and in tablet form. They are the
same medicinally. Physicians Q
have prescribed Gude's Pepto- q
Mangan for years. The name ,
"Gude's Pepto-Manganf" is on
the paoeagea Advertlsement.
