some cans of calcium carbide that wo
were carrying on our after deck had
broken loose and were afire. It was a
magnificent sight. The more water

the stuff, as you know, to burn fierce

"I smiled, knowing that the carbides
,would burn themselves out without In

raised a blood-curdling cry.

When shown positive and reliable proof that a certain
remedy had cured numerous cases of female ills, wouldn't
any sensible woman conclude that the same remedy would
also benefit her if suffering with the same trouble ?
Here are two letters which prove the efficiency of Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Red Banks, Miss. ""Words nre inadequate to express what
Lydia E. Pinkhanrs Vegetable Compound has done for inc. I
suffered from a female disease and -weakness which tho doc
tors said was caused by a fibroid tumor, and I commenced to
think there was no help for me. .Lydia 13. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound mado mo a well woman after all other means had
failed. My friends aro all asking what has helped me ho much,
and I gladly recommend Lydia 13. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound." Mrs. "Willie Edwards.
Hampstcad, Maryland." Before taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound I was weak and nervous, and could not
bo on my feet half a day without suffering. The doctors told
mo I never would bo well without an operation, but Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has done more for me than all
the doctors, and I hope this valuable medicine may come into
the hands of many more suffering women." Mrs. Joseph H.
We will -pay a handsome reward to any person who will
prove to us that these letters are not genuine and truthful
or that either of these women were paid in any way for
their testimonials, or that the letters are published without
their permission, or that the original letter from each did
not come to us entirely unsolicited.
What more proof can any one ask ?
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. No sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit.

Js(S8 to write her for advice. She has
guided thousands to health free of charge.
