this reason thousands of women jro on suf
fering cntold torture rather than apply to a
physician for help. It is safe to say that
one-half of the women in America suffer
thus in silence. It is all unnecessary.
The reproductive oruans of women are
directly acted upon by Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. It cures all disease and weak
ness of those delicate organs. It fits a wo
man for the highest duties of her sex, wife
hood and motherhood. If taken during the
expectant period in makes baby's coming
easy and safe and insures the health of the
child. The " Favorite Prescription " is the
discovery of a regularly graduated physi
cian, an eminent and skillful specialist in
diseases of women. Dr. Pierce is, and has
been for thirty years, chief consulting phy
sician to the Invalid' Hotel and Surgical
Institute, at Buffalo, N- V. His "Favorite
Prescription " does away with all necessity
for distasteful examinations or local treat
ment. It corrects distressing and painful
displacements and irregularities, and cures
where doctors fail.
Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Ad
viser not only tells you how to get well
when you are ill, but how to stay well when
you are well. It contains 1,008 pages and
over .100 illustrations. Over a million wo
men have a copy. A new edition is just out.
The reader may have a paper-covered copy
absolutely free, by sending 21 one-cent
stamps, to cover the cost of mailing only, to
the World's Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, at Buffalo. X. Y. If you prefer a fine
French cloth binding, embossed, send 10
cents extra, 31 cents in all.
