Go to your druggist and ask him
for Gude's Pepto-Mangan and take
it with your meals for a few weeks
and see how your health improves.
If you are pale, tired, lack am
bition and vigor, you know yourself
that if you had plenty of red blood
that you would not feel tired and half
sick all the time. The only sure
foundation of permanent health is
good blood. Gude's Pepto-Mangan I
builds nn vour blood with a form of
iron that gets into your system quick
ly. It is wonderful. You will like
it and it will make you feel so well
and strong. Life will be worth liv
ing again. Try it and you will thank
us for telling you about it. Drug
gists sell Gude's Pepto-Mangan in
both liquid and tablet form. adv.
