Doctors Feared Lung Trouble,
Restored to Health by Vinol.
The medical profession does not be
lieve that lung troubles are inherited,
but a person may inherit a weakness
or tendency to them.
Mrs. Kute Heckman, Springfield,!
Ohio, says: "A few years ago 1 wus
in a very bad run-down condition, and
the physician told me I had consump
tion. f tried another physician, and
he told me 1 had ulcers on my right
lung. I quit the physicians and start
ed on 'Vinol.' To-day 1 am perfectly
healthy, and that is why 1 recommend
'Vinol.' "
Vinol soothes and heals the in
flamed surfaces and allays the cough.
Vinol creates an appetite, strengthens
the digestive organs and gives the pa
tient 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.

Planted in York County

thousands of peach and other fruit
trees are being planted this week in

present time the prospects are for an
exceptionally large yield this year.
Apple trees are being planted in large
numbers. A great many of the fruit
growers plant the apple and peach
trees in alternate rows, as the life of
a peach tree is only from four to six
years, and when those are removed
the apple trees begin to bear, thus
saving the use of the same ground for
the length of time, and at the same
time the apple do not hinder the
peach trees.
