Mrs. Jansscn's experiences of interest to childless wives.
Millston, Wis. " I want to give you a word of praise for your wonderful
medicine. We are fond of children, and for a consi-Jeiable time after w
were married I feared I would not have any. I began taking Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, and it strengthened me so I r.ow have a nice,
strong, henlthybaby girl. I suffered very little at childbirth, and I give all
the credit to your medicine, and shall always recommend it highly.' Mra.
H. H. JansSen, Millston, Wis.
Mrs. Held of Marinette, Wis., adds her testimonial for Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. She says:
Marinette, Wis. "I was in a nervous condition and very Irregular. My
doctor advised an operation. My husband brought mo one of 'your booklets
and asked me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It overcame
my weakness so that I now have a healthy baby girl after having been mar
ried nine years. I am glad to recommend your medicine, and you mny use my
letter as a testimonial. "Mrs. H. B. Held, 330 Jefferson St., Marinette, Wi.
There are many, many such homes that were once childless, and are now
blessed with healthy, happy children Because Lydia E. Pinkham's Vcgetabla
Compound has restored the mother to a strong and healthy condition, as It
acts as a natural restorative for ailments as indicated by backache, irregu
larities, displacements, weakness and nervousness.
Women everywhere should remember that most of the commoner ailments
of women are not the surgical oneB they are not caused by, serious displace
ments, or growths, although the symptoms may be the same, and that is why
so many apparently serious ailments readily yield to Lydia E. Pinkham
Vegetable Compound, as it acts as a natural restorative. It can be taken
with perfect safety nnd often prevents serious troubles.
Therefore if you know of any woman who is suffering and has been unable
to secure relief and is regretfully looking forward to a childless old age, ask
her to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, as it has brought health
and happiness into so many homes once darkened by illness and despair.
