Fat That Shows
Soon Disappears
Prominent fat that comes and stavs
where it is not needed is a burden;
a hindrance to activity, a curb upon
pleasure. You can take off the fat
where it shows by taking after each
meal and at bedtime one Marmola
Prescription Tablet. These little tab
lets are as effective and harmless as
the famous prescription from which
they take their name. Buy and try
a case today. Your druggist sells
them at sl., or if you prefer you
may write direct to the Marmola
Company, 864 Woodward Ave., De

bye to dieting, exercise and fat.
Has Found Happiness
After 22 Years
Of Suffering
Says the Mnn-Ilcil Helped to Re
duce the H. C. of IJ. and wants
to see one in every home.
Wishing to help others, Mrs. H.
At. Drnucher of 635 Woodbine St.,
Harrisburg, Pa., relates her experi
ence in an interesting letter.
"X can truly say that I have gotten
■wonderful relief rrom the Man-Hell
Automatic Inhaler used for Hay
Fever and Asthma. Have been able
to attend picture shows on the hot
test nights and could go out in all
kinds of weather; something I could
not do in former years. Have spent
money for everything, answered all
advertisements but got no relief
from anything until the Man-Heil
Inhaler was advertised, by the
Gorgas Drug Store, of Harrisburg.
Since using Inhaler have been able
to sleep well, where in former years
got no rest and could not get my
breath. Had to be under the influ
ence of hypodermic injections most
of the time during Hay Fever period,
this reduced my vitality and
left me very weak, and any rest got
ten was unnatural. We have two
children and Mr. Draucher claims
the benefit derived from the Man-
Heil Inhaler has been of great finan
cial assistance in battling with the
H. C. of U, etc., by enabling the
mother of the home to be on the job
as well as bringing us greater happi
ness, for we feel that we have at
last found relief after 22 years of
severe suffering. I want to help
others and this letter can be publish
ed so the Man-Heil Inhaler will be
in many homes. Sincerely yours,
Mrs. H. M. Draucher."
The merit of this remarkable dis
covery is being proven daily in hun
dreds of cases of Catarrh, Asthma,
Dung Trouble and other diseases of
the Air Passages. Persons that have
suffered almost constantly for
twenty-five and thirty years and
who have tried everything else,
claim the Man-Heil is the only
remedy that gave them relief. The
Man-Heil Automatic Inhaler is sold
by George A. Gorgas Drug Stores

expreience and dependable judg
ment have been invited to partici
pate. I have asked about 300, and
