when you are sick, write to a doctor. Hut
why such superfluous advice ? Simply to call
attention to the fact that "women" who arc not
qualified physicians offer medical advice, in ad
vertisement' worded in such a deceptive man
ner that you are apt to overlook the important
fact that the woman is not a physician.
The great success of Dr. R.V. Pierce, in treating
and curing diseases of women has led to imita
tions of his methods, especially his offer of a free
consultation by letter to all sick women. At the

of over thirty years, Dr. Pierce has achieved tne
position of the chief of specialists in the treat
