cine to ease me at
those times, and said that I ought to
have an operation. I would not listen to
that, and when a friend of my husband's

for his wife, I wa3 willing to take it
Now I look the picture of health and f del
liko it, too. I can do all my own house
work, work in tho garden and entertain

what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
