"It la with nleasura I tell others of the great benefit I have derived from Vinol, for the past several years. I am 81 years old and I find Vi nol gives me strength, a healthy appe tite and overcomes nervous disorders. Vinol is the only tonic reconstructor I have used for several years. I hav recommended It to a great many of my friends and it has always proved satls- zactory. Mrs. m. A. Greenville, S. C. Such cases as the above are constantly coming to our attention. If people In this vicinity only realized how vinol in vigorates old people we would not be able to supply the demand. It is the tissue building, curative ele ments of the cod's livers, aided by the blood making strengthening properties of tonic iron contained in vinol, that makes it so successful in building up strength for old people, delicate chil dren and for all run-down conditions. Vinol is also a most successful remedy for chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis. If it fails to benefit any ono who tries it we return your money. Oliver's Red Cross Drug Store.
