ALTON WEEKLY TELEGRAPH, THURSDAY JAN. 4, 1900. ^^F^^r^^r ^^ ^ ^ — proung Bids I How easy it is for young hirls to go into the' 'decline, [they eat less and less, become jalcr and paler and can , narldy drag through the day. IThey are on the steady down- iward course. Iron does them I no good; strychnine and bit- [ters all fail. They need a food I that will nourish them better, land a medicine that will cor- (rect their disease. Scott's Emulsion I Is both of these, elegantly and permanently combined. The Cod-Llver Oil makes the blood richer, and 1 this gives better color to the face. [The hypophosphites of lime and [soda act as a strong tonic to the nerves. Soon the weight increases, | the digestion improves and health f returns. At all druggists; soc. and JSi.oo. SCOTT & 130WNE, Chemists. New York. iLLKD DAILY. Advices from Lady smith Up to Dec. 22.
