Children Cry For
Special Care of Baby*
That Baby should have abed of its own all are agreed. Tet it
is more reasonable for an infant to sleep with grown-ups than to use
a man's medicine in an attempt to regulate the delicate organism of
that same infant. Either practice is to be shunned. Neither would
be tolerated by specialists in children's diseases.
Your Physician will tell you that Baby's medicine must be
prepared with even greater care than Baby's food.
A Baby's stomach when in good health is too often disarranged
by improper food.- Could you for a moment, then, think of giving
to your ailing child anything but a medicine especially prepared
for Infants and Children Don't be deceived.
Hake a mental note of this:It is important, Mothers, that
you should remember that to function well, the digestive organs of
your Baby must receive special care. Wo Baby is so abnormal that
the desired results may be had from the use of medicines primarily
prepared for grown-ups.

It is said that middle age is the most trying period in a woman's life, and
owing to modernmethods of living not one woman ina thousand passes through
this perfectly natural change without experiencing very annoying symptoms.
Those smothering spells,the dreadful hot flashes that send the blood rushing
to the head until it seems as though it would burst, and the faint feeling that
follows, as if the heart were going to stop, those sinking or dizzy spellsare all
symptoms of a nervous condition, and indicate the need for a special medicine.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is a root and herb medicine espe-
cially adapted to act upon the feminine system. It acts in such a manner
as to build up the weakened nervous system and enables a woman to pass
this trying period with the least possible annoying symptoms.
Women everywhere should remember that most of the commoner ailments
of women are not the surgical onesthey are not caused by serious displace-
ments or growths, although the symptoms may be the same, and that is why
