Just because a woman Is a grand- lother it doesn't necessarily follow lat she wants to be cast In the role unpaid baby-sitter. Says one weary Grandma: "Just bout the time my husband and I art looking through the evening iper to see If there's a good movie i, the telephone rings and one or .e other of my daughters-in-law inounccs cheerfully that, they've ad 'a chance to go out and how >ut their stopping by to leave the aby with us.

Don't make a baby-sitter out of Grandmn, just because she happens to be handy. '' Let her enjoy the "free years" she has already earned and you ar« looking forward to.

Detective Watkins is well known nnd his countless number of friends throughout the country will rejoice to know that he ia now healthy, free of rheumatic aches and pains and now working hard. .Mr. Jerry Watkins "For several years," Mr. Watkins says, "I suffered from a rheumatic condition in the hip and leg. I was very nervous and finally developed migraine headaches, i tried all kinds of medicines but nothing seemed to do me any good, I seemed to be growing worse and worse and was finally advised to take a leava of absence from my work on the police force in an effort to recover my health." "The pains in my head sometimes were unbearable. I suffered tortures and I was miserable. At night particularly 1 lay awake and could not sleep." Mr. Watkins said that someone finally persuaded him to try HADACOL, and after taking the first bottle he (aid he could see an improvement in his general condition. "On January 14th of this year," he said, "1 felt so much better I decided to go back on the job The exavi'i^'fig r!ru':or Md m was in ycucd health, fcow I air Ol.l.rr working from 8 to 12 houn difly^ and I am able to ileep at *r^M normal person. I hav« taken »ir larga siza bottles of HADACOL. and all my friends know I owt my good health to HADACOL." Sir. Watkins is on» of th« many thousands of people who suffered from a deficiency of the B vit&- mins and the minerals that HAD- ACOL contains and who, therefore, found relief in HADACOL. It is a well-known scientific fact that the lack of only » small amount of the B vitamins and certain minerals in your system will causa certain bodily disorders such as nutritional neuritis, which causes the aches and paini commonly known as rheumatism, and there is no known cure for tha ailment except the administration of the needed vitamins and minerals. This is why people who >^M fered for years and years nevcF ' were able to obtain any relief until they took the vitamins and minerals the lack of which was causing the disorders. HADACOL does not contain only one but has five of the B vitamins and four necessary minerals. It comes to you in liquid form so that it, will be easily absorbed by the blood aiirt, therefore, carried to the parts of the body which need them most. So, It matters not where you live—no matter who you are—if you have tried all the medicines under the sun, you should be fair to yourself and give this wonderful preparation, HADACOL, a trial. And if your disease is caused by a lack of the B vitamins and minerals which HADACOL contains, then don't go on suffering—don't continue to make your life so miserable. Temporary relief forycrffc is not enough. Tak« HADACOL. ? Sold at all leading drugstores. Trial size only SI,25, but save money; buy the large family economy size, only 33.50. If your druggist does not handle HADACOL, order direct from *The l,e Bhnc Corporation, Lafayette, La., ami when the postman brings your package, just pay the amount plus the c.o.d. and postage. If you remit with the order we will pay the postage. Then, if you don't fee! |jurfcctly satisfied after using HADACOL as directed, just return the empty carton and your money will b« cheerfully refunded. Nothing could be laiier.—Adv.
