1 am so nervous! no one ever suffered as I do! There
im't'a well inch in my body. I honestly believe my lungs
are diseased, my chest pains me so, but I have no cough. I
am so weak at my stomach, and have indigestion terribly, and
palpitation of the heart ; am losing flesh ; and this headache
and backache nearly kills me, and yesterday I had hysterics. w-
" There is a weight in the lower part of my bowels, bearing
down all the time, with pains in my groins and thighs I
can't sleep, walk, or sit, and blue oh goodness ! I am simply
the most miserable of women."
This is a most vivid description of a woman suffering with
nervous prostration, caused by inflammation or some other
diseased condition of the womb.
- No woman should allow herself to reach such a perfection
of misery when there is no need of it. Read about Miss
Williamson's case and how she was cured.
Two Bad Cases of Nervous Prostration Cured
"Dear Mrs. Pixkham ; I
was suffering such tortures
from nervous prostration that
life was a burden. I could
not sleep at all, and wa3 too
weak , to walk across the floor:
My heart was affected so that
often I could not lie down at
all without almost suffocating.
I took Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound and it
worked like magic. I feel that
your medicine has been of in
estimable benefit to me."

Death of a 1'ioneer Woman.
Springfield. Ills.. Jan. Mrs.
Lucy Higglns, widow of Itobert, Q.
HAVE YOU ANY OF THESE
8mptDml of a Very Common Trouble?
There is no disease bo common in
the United States as catarrh, because
it appears in so man y ' forms and at
tacks so many different organs.
It is a common mistake' to suppose
that catarrh is confined to the nose
and throat. Any inflammation of the
mucous membrane, wherever located,
accompanied by abnormal secretions,
is catarrh. Catarrh of stomach or
bladder, or intestines, is nearly as
common as nasal catarrh and much
more serious, although it is true that
stomach catarrh and catarrh of other
internal organs is the result of neg
lected nasal catarrh. .- --
Catarrh is simply a continuance of
these symptoms until the trouble be
comes chronic and grows gradually
worse from year to year. ...
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are com
posed of hydrastin, eucalyptol, guaia
col and . similar antiseptics and ca
tarrh specifics, from which it will be
seen that no secret is made of the in
gredients and also that - no mineral
poisons are used, as is the case with
many well known catarrh medicines,
A new remedy has recently ap
peared, which so far as tested seems
to be remarkably effective in promptly
curing catarrh, wherever located.
The preparation is sold by druggists
generally under same of Stuart's Ca
tarrh Tablets, and In addition to be
ing very palatable and convenient,
poisesses txtraordinary merit, in
many cases giving immediate relief
from the coughing, hawking and con
stant clearing of the throat and he"ad,
those symptoms with which everyone
is familiar who has ever suffered from
colds in the head and throat.
For catarrh of the nose, throat,
bronchial tubes, for catarrh of stom
ach, intestines or bladder no prepar
ation is so safe and gives such rapid
and permanent results as Stuait's
Catarrh Tablets. .: . -
. All druggists sell them at 50 cents
for. full sized package. : You can use
them with assurance that you will
not contract the cocaine or morphine
habit, as results from this catarrh core
are apparent from the first day's use.
