HUSBAND RESCUED |
After Four Years of Discouraging
Conditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave
'Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky.?In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, I could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, 1 would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treatment
relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak I could not stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I commenced
taking it. From the very first
dose, I could tell it was helping me I
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing my work."
If vou are all run down from womanly i
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try i
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of wonderful success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recommend
it. Begin taking Cardui today.

I tried other remedies and got no relief j
from any of them. My condition was
such I'r.at I was unable to work for
about two months and tJ:e annoying
symptoms caused me a great deal of
trouble and pain. I was hardly able
