Modesty is the crowning virtue of American women. It is the trait
that all mankind admires. A modest woman is the most pleasing of all
created things. Because of this becoming virtue thousands of women
prefer to suffer untold miseries rather than confide their troubles to a
physician, and to even think of submitting to an examination revolt
ing. They can't get their own consent to an operation. Wine of drain
permits sensitive women to retain their modesty. With it they can cure
u female troubles" in the quiet of their own rooms. If special treatment
is required they can write to the Advisory Department of the Chatta
nooga Medicine Co., and their letters will be promptly answered by
LADIES' ADVISORY DEPARTMENT.
