Sick and Ailing?
Backache, headache, weakness, nervousness, discour
agement and ill temper-the pains and distress of womanly
weakness-keep many women from finding much pleasure
in life. They could be spared such suffering, and live in
comfort, if they would only benefit by the experience of
others, who have been helped to health and happiness by
Cardui, the woman's tonic

My head troubled me, and I hadi a pain in my left
side. The physician who treated me gave me no relief,
After taking Cardui, I am now well. Cardui has helped
me very much, and I recommend it to1 all suffering women."
Cardui is a purely vegetable, mild, gentle-acting tonic,
for women. Its wonderful success, in treating cases of
womanly weakness and disease, during the past 50 years,
is due to the fact that it goes to the cause of the trouble
and helps, nature build up the womanly strength in a sim
ple, natural way.
