By Applying Sloan's Liniment to
Forehead You Can Stop
the Severe Pains
Many headaches are of a neuralgic
nrimn. The symptoms of such head-
acheTare inteW and lingering pains
intne brow, temples or back of the head.
There is one certain relief that has
been known and recommenaea ior
years back, Sloan's Liniment. One
application and the dull pain is practi
cally gone. It is easily applied without
rubbing. Rubbing is unnecessary, as
Sloan's Liniment quickly penetrates to
the seat of trouble. .
lumbago, chilblains, sprains and stiff
neck can also be most effectively treated
witll gran's Liniment. Cleaner than
mussy plasters or ointmente . it does
not stain tfce skin or clog the pores.

It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic. She says further: "Before 1 began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would kill me. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. Alter taking three bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. I soon
gained 35 pounds, and now,' I do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
I wish every suffering woman would give
The Woman's Tonic
a trial. I still use Cardui when I feel a little bad.
and it always does me good."
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc, are sure signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman's
tonic You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.
