Mrs. Rebecca Pecklnpaugh, 1907 West Penn St.. Evansvllle, Ind., says he favorite pastine these days is soliu fishing with her husband— :hit is, of course, since she has been relieved of aches and pains in the shoulders, arms, legs and back by :aklnsj HADACOL because she lound she had a deficiency of V'*}- mins Bl, B2, Iron, and Niacin. She now has the vitality and energy to do many things that, before HAD- ACOL gave her these necessary elements .she was unable to do. Here is Mrs. Peckiiipaugh's own statement.- "I was .sure in an aw- ul fix for a while. My arms, legs lips and back were sure In a sorty :onditinn. My appetite M;IS awfu : lad—couldn't hardly cat tmythtm> Didn't know what I was going to clc—I really felt bad. Then one day heard how other folks were bc- ig helped by HADACOL. I decide,! to try it. Now I have taken 5 bot- les of HADACOL and I sure feel Ine. My arms, legs, back and hips don't ache a bit. I have never heard f anything so wonderful as HADA- COL. I even have a wonderful ap- ictitc. For sick folks who really want to know what to do I sav ry HADACOL." Yes, You Should Try HADACOL . . a's have thousands of other; viiosc systems lacked Vitans m i2, Iron and Niacin. The HADACOL ormuln is so effective for ach-s ami pains In shoulders, legs and aims and a. general run-down condition due to such defiflencies In your yslcm. Make up your mind to give remarkable HADACOL a chance to lelp yon as it has helped thousands of others whose sj'stcms lacked Vitamins Bl, B2 Niacin and Iron Remember, there ore no substitutes or HADACOL. Always Insist on the genuine HADACOL. No risk in- •olveri. Buy » botllc of HADACOU either the trtnl size, S1.2S, or the arge family size or hospital size 3.50, and if HADACOL does not islp you. your money will be re- uncled.
