The line of beauty is a curve. Women

! all brains and nerves, but without the
: strength and health that accompanied

necessary to many people,
j This remarkable discovery comes in

J mingles with the food and helps it to
I assimilate so that it makes rich blood
j and pleasing plumpness.
H. ('. Kennedy has so much conti

food and health restorer that he is will
ing and glad to allow any customer to
deposit 50c with him and take homo
a box of Samose with the understanding
that if it does not give a marked in
crease in good firm flesh the money will
be .returned without any questions.
