well and happy and can do my own

Woman s Power
Woman's most glorious endowment is the power
to awaken and hold the pure and honest love of u
worthy man. W hen she loses it and still loves on,
no one in the wide world can know the heart agony
*he endures. The woman who suffers from weak-
ness and derangement of her special womanly or-
ganism soon loses the power to sway the heart of
e man. Her general health suffers and she loses
tier good looks, her attractiveness, her amiability
end her power and prestige as a ioman. Dr. K.V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N.Y., with
(he assistance of his staff of able physicians, has prescribed for und cured many
thousands of women. He has devised a successful remedy for woman's ail-
ments. It is known as I)r. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is a positive
specific for the weaknesses and disorders peculiar to women. It purifies, regu-
lates, strengthens and heals. Medicine dealers sell it. No honest dealer will
advise you to accept a substitute in order to make a little larger profit.
