Beef "Tvair Iron
and nCi
Extract of Beef, Citrate of Iron
and Sherry Wine.
This preparation is famous as a
system builder and general tonic. Our
preparation differs from all others of
the same name, because we use pre
digested beef, the best sherry wine, and
the iron is in such form that it is quick
ly taken into the system. It is pleasant
to take and prompt in action, making
rich, red blood.
Do You Require a Tonic?
Are you weak, worn out, run down
and nervous'/ Is yonr blood thin and
impure? Are you pale and haggard,
lips white? Do you become exhausted
from very little effort, your sleep rest,
less, yonr appetite poor? If you have
any of these symptoms use onr s Beef,
Iron and Wine.
If the result ia not satisfactory we
will gladly return your money.
Price, 50 cents a pint.

j Facts^^
? It seems to be customary with some stores to be advertising
f bargains at all tiinf.s. Every reasonable minded person knows a
1 that no man ia in business for hla health. We re not. Neither is C
I the other fellow. We sell reliable goods at a legitimate profit; r
; we are entitled to that; but to be selling at less than cost most C
\ everv day in the year, as some advertise is, keep your eye open, 1
C something is wrong. Yon are not Retting value for your money %
1 or you are getting unseasonable merchandise. We do not ad- /
/ vertise a sale at all times but we do exchange with you for your S
S ilollnr the best dollar's worth of merchandise that money ran C
' buy. We sell reliable makes onlv-bought from firms that J
Ht/nd back of and replace every dollar s worth of merchandise
/ that does not prove satisfactory. C
C We want you to examine our Hamburger Suits and Overcoats a
\ before buyinK-they are beauties. It is not necessary to go into #
V details as most every person in Butler county knows what loaac >
{ Hamburger & Son's Clothing means. It is like exchanging /
V dollars when you buy here—and facts are proofs. So call ana De ■
