More than half the
suffering which sap?
the energies and fours the disposition of
women is directly traceable to some disor
der of the organs distinctly feminine. There
is no real need of such troubles ; they a!l
invariably cured by Dr. Pierce's Kavorite
Prescription, which reaches and strengthem
the internal generative organs as no othej
treatment can possibly do. By restoring
health a::.l strength to this most important
part of the feminine constitution, the Fa
vorite Prescription " gives new tone and en
ergy to all the rest of the body.
One of the most deeply interesting and
truly educative books ever written is tlu
" People's Common Sense Medical Ad
viser," by Dr. R. V. Tierce, Chief Consult
ing Physician of the Invalids' Hotel and
Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y. This
splendid volume of 100S pages, include!
ninety pages on the subject of diseases pe
culiar to women, with directions for home
treatment, rendering unnecessary the em
barrassing "examinations," and generally
useless " loe:i treatment," so dreaded by
modest women. The book contains the
most comprehensive explanation of bum at
physiology and the rational principles of
hygiene ever published. Illustrated witli
over 300 engravings a complete medicaj
library in one volume. Xo other medica?
book in the ICnglish language ever had such
en enormous sale. 680,000 copies were sold
at 1.5,0 each. Dr. Pierce is now distrib- 1
uting a new free edition of half a m.lhon
copies. A c."py will be sent absolutely fret
to anyone who will send to the World's
Dispensary Medical Association, Buffalo,
N. V., ?.i one-cent stamps to pay cot of
mailing only. Thv? pre-nt edition is in all
respects the same f:s that sold at $!.-",o ex
cept only that it is bound in strong mauiila
paper coveri instead of cloth.
