Wife Cured by Lydia E.
Dea Moines, Iowa." Four years ago
I was very sick and my life was nearly
spent. The doctors
stated that I would
never get well with-
o u t an operation
and that without it
I would not live one
year. My husband
objected to any
operation and got
me some of Lydia E.
ble Compound. I took
it and commenced
to get better and am now well, am
stout and able to do my own housework.
I can recommend the Vegetable Com
pound to any woman who is sick and
run down as a wonderful strength and
health restorer. My husband says I
would have been in my grave ere this
if it had not been for your Vegetable
Compound." Mrs. Blanche Jeffer
son, 703 Lyon St., Des Moines, Iowa.
Before submitting to a surgical opera
tion it is wise to try to build up the
female system and cure its derange
ments with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound ; it has saved many
women from surgical operations.

You Need a Tonic
There are times in every woman's life when she
needs a tonic to help her over the hard places.
When that time comes to you, you know what tonic
to take Cardui, the woman's tonic Cardui is com
posed of purely vegetable ingredients, which act
gently, yet surely, on the weakened womanly organs,
and helps build them back to strength and health.
It has benefited thousands and thousands of weak,
ailing women in its past half century of wonderful
success, and it will do the same for you.
You cant make a mistake in taking
The Woman's Tonic
Miss Amelia Wilson, R. F. D. No. 4, Alma, Ark.,
says: "I think Cardui is the greatest medicine on earth,
for women, Before I began to take Cardui, I was
so weak and nervous, and had such awful dizzy
spells and a poor appetite. Now I feel as well and
as strong as I ever did, and can eat most anything."
Begin taking Cardui today. Sold by all dealers.
