A Message to Thin,
Weak. Scrawny Folks
An Easy Way to Gain 10 to :M> Lbs. of
Solid, Healthy, Permanent Flesh
Thin, nervous, undeveloped men and
women everywhere are heard to say, "I
ean't understand why 1 do not get fat
' eat plenty of pood, nourishing food/'
I'he reason it just this: You cannot get
tat, no matter how much you eat, unless
your digestive organs assimilate the fat
making elements of your food instead
of passing them out through the bodv
as waste. (
\\ hat is needed is a means of gently
urging the assimilative functions of the
stomach and intestines to absorb the
oils and fats and band them over to the
blood, where tliev may reach the
starved, shrunken, run down tissues and
build them up. The thin person's liodV
is like a dry sponge—eager and hungr?
for the fatty materials of which it is
being deprived by the failure of ali
mentary canal to take them from the
food. The best way to overcome this
sinful waste of flesh building
and to stop the leakage of fats is to
use Sargol, the recently discovered re
generative force that is recommended so
highly by physicians here and abroad,
'lake a little Sargol tablet with ever*
meal and notice how quickly your
cheeks fill out and rolls of firm, healthy
flesh are deposited over your body, coh
ering each bony angle and projecting
point. O. A. Gorgas and other good
druggists have Sargol, or can get ii
from their wholesaler, and will refund
your money if you are not satisfied with
the gain in weight it produces as stated
on the guarantee in each package. It ia
