Mrs. Ellen Ripley, Chaplain Ladies Aid,
Grand Army of the Republic, No. 7, 222
10th Ave., N. E., Minneapolis, Minn.,
Strongly Endorses Lydia E. Pinkham's
Dear Mrs. Pinkham : Your Vegetable Compound cured me
of ulceration of the womb, and getting such a complete cure I felt that
the medicine had genuine merit and was well worth recommending
to other sick women.
" For fifteen years I have been your friend. I have never written you
before, but I have advised hundreds of women to take your medicine, in
fact it is the only real reliable remedy I know of for a sick woman.
" I have not yet found a case of ovarian or womb trouble which
has not been relieved or cured by the faithful use of Iydia K.
l'inkliam's Vegetable Compound.
" You have brought health to hundreds of women in Minneapolis a3
you have no doubt to others over the country." Mrs. Kllen Rifley.
60OOO FORFEIT IF THE A HOVE BETTER IS XOT GENUINE.
When women are troubled with irregular or painful menstruation,
weakness, leurnrrhcra. displacement or ulceration of the wonil, that bear-ins-down
feeling, in ilammation of the ovaries, bnckache, flatulence,
grneral debility, indigestion, and rervous prostration, they should
remember there is one tried and true remedy. Eydia E. iMnkliam"
Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles.
No other medicine in the world has received such widespread and
unqualified endorsement. No other medicine has such a record cf cures
of female troubles. .Refuse to buy any other medicine.

"Of course J couldn't leave R.ck

am deeply interested in all things
pertaining to this locality, having
ipent so many years in the harness
here. Although I am not out on busi
ness I am casually looking over gov

note the progress that has been made
on tho Hennepin canal. However,
my presence here has nothing to do
with the visit of Capt. Wheeler, who

Wo in Washington know very lit
ilo more about the probability of the
passage of a river and harbor bill at
the next session of congress than
others do. We expect such a meas

we were as much surprised as anyone
when the bill failed at the last
moment at the last session. Senators
and congressmen are divided as to
whether another bill will pass, but of
course the chances ate that it will.
In my trip so far I have been told in
an unofficial manner of the needs cf
various communities in the way of
government work, and while I am
not bund to take a record of them
all back to Washington, my memory
will probably serve to recall some of

A UNIVERSAL FOOD.
Following tnre's Footsteps.
'I have a boy, two years old,
weighing 10 pounds and in perfect
health who has been raised on Grape
Nuts and milk.
'This is an ideal food and evidently
furnishes the elements necessary for a
baby as well as for adults. We have
used Grapo-Nufs in large quantities
and greatly to our advantage." F.
W. Leavitt. Minneapolis, Minn.
O le advantage about Grape Nuts
Food is that it is pre digesie! in tbe
process of manufacture; that is, the
etarch contained in toe wheat and
barley is transformed into grape-sugar
in exactly the same method as this
process is carried out in the human
body, that is by the use of moisture
and long exposure to moderate
warmth, which grows the diastase in
trrainr, and makes remarkable change
fro-Ji starch to grape-sugar. Toert
fore, tbe most delicate stomach can
handle Grape Nuts and tbe food is
quickly absorbed into tbe blood and
tissue, certain parts of it going di
rectly to building and nourishing tho
brain and nerve centers.
