One day we had been out all of the

twenty d'ills, and in retrospect I view

child appeared even more listless

Mrs. Jay McGee, of Steph

nine (9j years, I suffered with
womanly trouble. I had ter
rible headaches, and pains ir.
my back, etc. It seemed as if
I would die, I suffered so. At $
last, I decided to try Cardui.
the woman's tonic, and it
helped me right away. The
full treatment not only ^helped
me, but it cured me."
The Woman's Tonic
Cardui helps women in time
of greatest need, because it
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
blue, out-of-sorts, unable to
I^J do your household work, on
' account of your condition, stop
worrying and give Cardui a
trial. It has helped thousands
of women,-why not you?
