WOMEN do suffer!
Even so-called healthy women suffer!
But they are not healthy !
The marks left by pain are on the young faces of many of our
daughters. Pain that leaves its mark comes from a curable
cause, it tnat cause is not removed its
influence reaches out and overshadows a
whole life. The reason Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has been so uni
formly successful for over a quarter of a
century in overcoming the suffering of
women, is that it is thorough and goes
directly to the cause. It is a woman's
remedy for woman's ills.
Miss Emily F. Haas, of 148 Freeman
St.. 5reennoint. Brooklyn, N. Y.. writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkha.m I wish to
state that I used your Vegetable Com
pound with the greatest success. I
was very sick for nearly a year with
hysteria, was down-hearted and
nervous: also sunerea witn painiui
menstruation and pain in back and
limbs. I often wished for death,
thinking nothing would cure me. I
had doctors, but their medicines did
me no good. At last, by the advice
of a friend. I began to take Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
and I am happy to say it has entire
ly cured me.
Jennie Sherman, of Fremont,
Mich., Box 74S, writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkham; I feel
that 1 mnst write you and tell
you what your medicine has
done for me. I had neuralgia
of the stomach for two years,
so bad that I could not do any
work. I had two or three doc-
tors, but did not seem to get any bet
ter. I began taking Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound and Liver
Pills and improved from the first, had
better appetite, and after taking three bottles oi Compound
and one box of Liver Pills, can say that I am cured. Your
Vegetable Compound is a wonderful medicine."
