Severe Bronchial Cough
Doctors Feared Lung Trouble,
Restored to Health by Vinol
I The medical profession does not
' believe that lung troubles are in
; herited, but a person may inherit a
! weakness or tendency to them.
I Mrs. Kate Heckman, Springfield,
Ohio, says: "A few years ago I was
I in a very bad run-down condition, and
I the physician told me I had consump
! tion. I tried another physician, and
. he told me I had ulcers on my right
i lung. I quit tho physicians and started
lon 'Vinol.' To-day I am perfectly
healthy, and that is why I recom
mend 'Vinol'."
Vinol soothes and heals the In
llamed surfaces and allays the cough.
Vinol creates an appetite, strengthens
the digestive organs and gives the
patient strength to throw off incipient
pulmonary diseases.
Try a bottle of Vinol with the un
derstanding that your money will be
returned if it does not help you.
