It was not strange that Mrs. Nlrdlinger should have a miscarriage Bit? ?ufiering nine; years with ovarian troablefl. This
w?sakness made her unequal to the task of bringing a healthy child into tbe world. Bearing down pains and ovarian diseases
result from the inflammation and consequent weakaning o? the muscles and ligaments which hold the iemale origans in place.
They either fall of their own weight or some strain which would not be felt in health, causes the trouble.
By regulating menstruation, Wine of ?Cardui banishes inflammation from the entire female organism and tbe strength?
ened ligaments bring the organs back to their proper place. This U what Wine of Cardui did for Mrs. Nlrdlinger. She waa
restored to health and strength and gives Wine of Cardui the credit of making her able to become a happy mother. There are
many suffering women who think that health can never be thein becauee they cannot secure the ?servici? of a great specialist.
But we want to r,ay right here that while Mrs. Nirdlinger lives in Philadelphia, a great medicai center, she depended an Wino
of Cardui for a cure and she was cured. Will you take it? Ail druggriets sell $1.00 bottles of Wine of ?Cardui.
