r " I suffered, during girlhood, from womanly weakness,
writes Mrs. Mollie Navy, of Walnut, N. C "At last, I was
almost bed-ridden, and had to give up. We had three
doctors. All the time, I was getting worse, x I had bad
speUs, that lasted from 7 to 28 days. In one week, after I
gave Cardui a trial, I could eat, sleep, and joke, as well as
anybody. In 8 weeks,' I was well. Lhad been an invalid
for, 5 weary years ! Cardui relieved me, when eveiytliiiig
else failed.' . " '
If you are weak and ailing,, think what it would mean,
to you, to recover as quickly as Mrs. Navy did. For more
than 50 years, this purely vegetable, tonic remedy, for women,
has been used by thousands of weak and ailing sufferers.
They found it of real value in relieving their aches and
paiiis. Why suffer longer? A remedy that has relieved
and helped so many, is ready, at the nearest drug store, for
use, at once, by you. Try it, today.
