SUFFERING IN SILENCE.
Women are the real heroes of the
world. Thousands on thousands of them
endure the dragging torture of the ills
peculiar to womankind in the silence of
home. They suffer on and on weeks,
months, years. The story of weakness
and torture is written in the drawn
features, in the sallow skin, in the list
less eyes, in the lines of care and worry
on the face.
Inborn modesty seals their lips. They
prefer pain to humiliation. Custom has
made them believe the onlv hope of
relief lies in the exposure of examina
tion and "local treatment."
Take ten cases of "female weakness"
and in nine of thftn "local treatment"
is unnecessary. There is no reason why
modest, sensitive women should sub
mit to it. McELREFTS
WINE OF CARDUI
is a vegetable wine. It exerts a wonder
fully healing, strengthening and sooth
ing influence over the organs of woman
kind. It invigorates and stimulates the
whole system. It is almost infallible in
curing the peculiar weaknesses, irre
gularities and painful derangements of
woman. Year after year, in the privacy
of home away from the eyes of every
bodyit effects cores.
