Reliable evidence Is abundant that women
are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub-
lishing in the newspapers—hundreds of them—are all genu-
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia E. Pinkham*a
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true—if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names ana
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
Caxdkk, N.J.—“ I was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
my kidneys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a
galvanic battery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleeping-chair, and soon
became almost a steel
deton. Finally my doctor went away for his
health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. I*inkham’s Vegetable
Compound ana got me some. In two months I got relief and now I
am like a new woman and am at my usual weight.
__________________ _ I recommend
your medicine to every one and so does my husband."—Mrs. Tims
watsbs, 1135 Knight St, Camden, NJ.
And thisaone from Mrs. Haddock:
Utica, Ok la.—MI was weak and nervous, not able to do my work
ig the Lydia
than I have been for twenty years. 1 think it is a wonderful medi-
cine and I have recommended it to others."—Mrs. Mary Ann Had-
dock, Utica, Oklahoma.
Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others—why should it fail in your case?
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for fe-
male Ills. No one sick with woman's ailments
does justloe to herself if she does not try this fa-
mous medicine made from roots and herbs. It
has restored so many suffering women tohealth.
