of 718 Portsmoutn Avenue, this city.
Mrs. Ooodmen says her family was
very uneasy about her condition, as
she seemed so weak and thin.
“I ached all over,” she explains,
“and my back and sides hurt most
of the time.
"I dragged around, and did not
see a day of good health.
"I went to caLl on one of my
neighbors, and sho remarked about
my looking so bad. Sho told me to
get a bottle of Cardul and take It.
Next Saturday night, my husband
brought It home to me.
"Before I had taken Cardul a

continued taking It for awliile, os
my health kept, on improving.

a few doors off Eighth avenue. The

Tenements increase from Tenth (o
