I had a very hard lime getting my work done— watching my two little daughters, keeping the house clean and doing all the cooking. I had lost my appetite and I could hardly gel any sleep at all. Finally I was forced to go to bed and-my sister had to do my housework. I felt terrible. I then heard about HADACOI, and how other folks were feeling wonderful be cause of HADACOL. In Just three weeks' time I could tell a diffcr- -•en'ce. I get a wonderful night's sleep and, best of all. I now have a fine appetite. HADACOL Is certainly wonderful I have told all my neighbors how really wonderful HADACOL Is." Yes, Vo« ShonM Try HADACOI. ... as have thousands of, others whose systems lacked Vitamins Bl, B2, Iron and Nlacln.
