The Secret of Youth
Do you ever wonder how you can remain young, or
why other women older than you, look younger than you do?
The secret can be put in a few words: Preserve
your health, and you will preserve your youth "
By "health" we mean not alone physical health, but
nerve health, as, sometimes, magnificently strong-looking
women are nervous wrecks. . M
But whether you are weak physically or nervously,
you need a tonic, and the best tonic for you is Cardul.
It builds strength for the physical and nervous systems.
It helps put flesh on your bones and vitality into your nerves.
The Woman's Tonic
"My mother," writes Mrs. Z. L Adcock, of Smith-
ville, Tenn., "is 44 years old and is passing through the
charW|hg w'as irregular and bloated and suffered terribly.
My father stepped over to the store and got her a bottle
of Cardui, which she took according to directions and now
she is up, able to do her housework and says she feels
like a newiwoman." Try Cardui in your own cas\

of Heart Trouble Cured by
Dr. Miles' Heart Remedy
"Before I began taking Dr.
Miles' Heart Remedy I had been
suffering from heart trouble for
over five years. I had pains in
my left side, and under my
shoulder blade, could not sleep
on the left side, and was so short
of breath the least exertion
would bring on the most distress-
ing palpitation. I had scarcely
taken a half bottle,of the Heart
Remedy before I could see a
marked change in my condition.
When I had taken six bottles I
MRS. C. C. GORKEY,
If there is fluttering or palpi-
tation it is an indication of a
weakness of the nerves and mus-
cles of the heart. It is not neces-
sarily diseased—just weak from
over-work. The heart may be
weak just the same as the eyes,
stomach or other organs. You
can make a weak heart strong
by taking Dr. Miles' Heart Rem-
edy. Get a bottle from your
druggist, take it according to di-
rections, and if it does not bene-
fit he will return your money.
