Read what Cardui did for Miss Myria Engler, of
Faribault, Minn. She says : " L6i me tell you how much
good Cardui has done me. As a young girl, I always had
to suffer so much with all kind of pain. Sometimes, I was
so weak that I could hardly stand on my feet. I got' a
bottle of Cardui, at the drug store, and as soon as I had
taken a few dses, I began to feel better.
Today, I feel as well as anyone can."
