Who is Your Skinny Friend, Mabel?

Tell him to take Cod Liver Oil for a couple of months and get enough good healthy flesh on his bones to look like a real man.

Tell him he won't have to swallow the nasty oil with the nauseating fishy taste, because the McCoy Laboratories, of New York, are now putting up Cod Liver Oil in sugar coated tablet form.

Ask for McCoy's Cod Liver Oil Compound Tablets -- Kinder's Drug Store, Holloway's Drug Store, Finney's Pharmacy and every druggist worthy the name sells them -- 60 tablets -- 60 cents. Any man or woman can put on five pounds of healthy flesh in 30 days or your druggist will willingly refund the purchase price.

One woman put on 15 pounds in six weeks. Children grow robust and strong.

"Get McCoy's, the original and genuine Cod Liver Oil Tablet."
