Proverbs "When the butter won't come put a penny in the churn," is an old time dairy proverb. It often seems to work though no one has ever told why. When mothers are worried because the children do not gain strength and flesh we say give them Scott's Emul sion. It is like the penny in the milk because it works and because there is something astonishing about it. Scott's Emulsion is simply a milk of pure cod liver oil with some hypophosphites especially prepared for delicate stomachs. Children take to it naturally because they like the taste and the remedy takes just as naturally to the children be cause it is sb perfectly adapted to their wants. For all weak and pale and thin children Scott's Emulsion is the most satisfactory treat ment. We will send you the penny, l. e., a sample free. Be ture that thls plcture ln the form of a label is on the wrapper oi every bottle ot Emulsion you buy. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemlsts, 409 Pearl St., N. Y. Soc.andft.oo; sll drugehU.
