of These Two Women
r ~alo, N. Y.-" I am the mother of four children, and for
nearly threo years I suffered from a female trouble with pains
' in my bac k and side, and a general weakness. I had pro
fessional attendance most of that time but did not seem to

\' Pinkham's Vegetable Compound which I had seen
advertised in the newspapers, and in two weeks noticed
1 a marked improvement. I continued its use and am
now free from pain and able to do all my house
work."-- Mrs. B. B. ZILrsIs&A, 202 Weiss Street,

.....so badly from it at times I could not be on my feet
at all. I was all run down and so weak I could not

down at night. I took treatments from a physician
but they did not help me. My Aunt recommended
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I tried
it and now I am strong and well again and do

These swindlers get the attentiot

the unsusiecting Bond owner believe
that the highest market price can be
secured for his bonds through the
agency of the advertiser. Such is
rarely, if ever, the case. Records of
transactions of this character, brought
to the attention of the Department of
Justice and the Treasury Department,
prove conclusively. that these swind

clutches .by paying the lowest possi
