A Message to Thin,
Weak, Scrawny Folks
An Easy Way to Gain 10 to 30
lbs. of Solid, Healthy,
Thin, nervous, undeveloped then and
women everywhere are heard to say,
'I can't understand why I do not get
fat. I eat plenty of good, nourishing
food." The reason is Just this: You
! cannot get fat, no matter how much
■ you eat, unless your digestive organs
I assimilate the fat-making elements of
I your food instead of passing them out
! through the body as waste.
I What is needed is a means of gently
urging the assimilative functions of the
stomach and intestines to absorb the
| oils and fats and hand them over to the
l blood, where they may reach the starv-
I ed, shrunken, run-down tissues and
| build them up. The thin person's body
i is like a dry sponge—eager and hungry
for the fatty materials of which It is
being deprived by the failure of the
alimentary canal to take them from
the food The best way to overcome
this sinful waste of flesh building Ele
ments and to stop the leakage or fats
is to use Sargol, the recently discover
ed regenerative force that is recom
mended so highly by physicians hero
and abroad. Take a little Sargol tablet
with every meal and notice how quickly
your cheeks 111 l ouj and rolls of firm,
healthy flesh are deposited over your
body, covering each bony angle and
projecting point. O. A. Gorgas and
other good druggists have Sargol, or
can get it from their wholesaler, and
will refund your money If you are not
satisfied with the gain in weight ft
produces as stated on the guarantee In
each package. It is inexpensive, easy
to take and highly efficient
Cantinn: —While Sargol has produces
remarkable results in overcoming nerv
ous dyspepsia and general stomach
troubles, It should not be taken unless
you are willing to gain ten pounds or
more, for It is a wonderful flesh-build
