Rid Yoar Sy»tem of Malarial
Shivering with chills one moment
and burning with fever the next—
that's one of the effects of Malaria.
Unless checked, the disease will do
serious harm to your health. Malaria
a blood infection, calls for two things.
First, destroying the infection in the
blood. Second, building up the blood
to overcome the effects of the disease
and to fortify against further attack.
Grove’s Tasteless Chill Tonic sup
plies both these effects. It. contains
tasteless quinine, which kills the in
fection in the blood, and iron, which
enriches and builds up the blood.
Chills and fever soon stop and you are
restored to health and comfort. For
half a century, Grove’s Tasteless Chill
Tonic has been sure relief for Malaria.
It is just as useful, too, as a general
tonic lor old and young. Pleasant to
take and absolutely harmless. .Safe to
give children. Get a bottle at any
drug store. Now two sizes 50e and sl.
The $1 size contains 2 1-2 times as
much as the 50c size and gives you
25 per cent moro for your money.
