No Relief-Mrs. Brown Fin
ally Cured by Lydia E.
Cleveland, Ohio.-" For years I sf.
fered so sometimes it seemed as though
I could not stand
it any longer. - It
was all in my lower
organs. At times I
could hardly walk,
for if I stepped on a
little stone I would
almost faint. One
day I did faint and
in y husband w a s
sent for and the doc.
tor came. I was ta
ken to the hospital
and stayed four weeks but when I came
home I would faint just the same and
had the same pains.
A friend who is a nurse asked rne to
try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound. I began taking it that very day
for I' was suffering a great deal. It has
already done me more good than the
hospital. . To anyone who is suffering
as I was my advice is to stop in the first
drug-store and get a bottle of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound before
you go home."-Mrs. W. C. BROWN,
