ALTON. WEEKLY TELEGRAPH, THURSDAY JAN. 4, 1900. Young Girls How easy it is for young girls to go into the' 'decline, They eat less and less, become paler and paler and can harldy drag through the day. They are on the steady down* ward course, Iron does them no good; strychnine and bitters all fail. They need a food that will nourish them better, and a medicine that will cor* rcct their disease. Scott's Emulsion is both of these, elegantly and permanently combined. The Cod-Liver Oil makes the blood richer, and 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 returns. At all druggists; soc, and fi.oo.
