All manner of extravagant expressions are possible when
a woman's nerves are overwrought.
The spasm at the top of the wind pipe or bronchial tubes,
"ball rising in the throat," violent beating of the heart,
laughing and crying by turns, muscular spasms (throwing
the arms about), frightened by the most insignificant occur
rences are all symptoms of a hysterical condition and se
rious derangement of the female organs.
Any female complaint may produce hysterics, which
must be regarded as a symptom only. The cause, however,
yields quickly to "Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Cora
pound, which acts at once upon the organ afflicted and the
nerve centers, dispelling effectually all those distressing
Mrs. Lewis Says: I Feel Like a New Person,
Physically and flentally."
Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I wish to speak a good word for Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. For years I had ovarian trouble
and suffered everything from nervousness, severe headache, and pain in
back and abdomen. I had consulted different physicians, but decided to
try your medicine, and I soon found it was giving me much relief. I con
tinued its use and now am feeling like a new person, physically and mentally,
and am glad to add one more testimonial to the value of your remedy."

Mrs. Haven's First Letter to Mrs. Pinkham.
Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I would like your advice in regard to my
troubles. I suffer every month at time of menstruation, and flow so much
and for so long that I become very weak, also get very dizzy. I am troubled
with a discharge before and after menses, have painB in ovaries so bad some
times that I can hardly get around, have sore feeling in lower part of bowels,
pain in back, bearing-down feeling, a desire to pass urine frequently, with
pains in passing it ; have leucorrhcea, headache, fainting spells, and some
times have hysteria. My blood is not in good condition. Hoping to hear
from you. Iam," Mrs. Emma Haven, 2508 South Ave., Council Bluffs, Iowa.
(June 3, 1899.)
Mrs. Haven's Second Letter.
' Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I wish to express my gratitude for what your
medicine has done for me. I suffered for four years with womb trouble.
Every month I flowed very badly. I got bo bad that I could hardly do my
work. Was obliged to sit or lie down the most of the time. I doctored for
a long time, but obtained no relief. I began using your remedies Lydia

S. A. MeCottery Story.
S. A. McCotterx, who was employed
at the Gardner shipyards, almost lost
his life in trying to save the people
who rushed down Market street to
the river when the flames were at
their fiercest. He says he succeeded
in getting 20 persons across the river,
but as many more were either burned
to death or drowned at the pier.
"I had no idea the shipyard was in
danger," said Mr. McCottery. "I was
trying to save my tools ass the fire
was being blown to the east and
away from the docks.
"Sudden Ij the flames shot across
the yard with the wind from the west
right behind them. Then I knew ev
erything vas gone. The building was
burning oer my head.
o Eacnpe For Those Ieft.
"On the pier I saw a crowd of peo
ple. 1 am positive that 40 is a low
estimate of those I saw. Of this num
ber I saw only the 20 I carried
across. There was absolutely no way
of escape ior them.
"After 1 had carried my boat half
way across the river I heard many
cries and shouts that seemed to come
from the smoke at the pier. I knew
many were lost at that moment, for
the tiamfs were on all sides and the
river in front."
