AH women need a blood purifier and
regulator at one time or another, but
particularly is this need felt by work
ing women, especially those who stand
during the greater part of the day.
The one 'blood remedy that is valued
by rich and poor alike is Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Ill health robs life of its
pleasures for the rich and makes ex
istence doubly hard for the poor. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills give new blood

color and a good digestion.
Mrs. Mary Reagan, who lives at 86
Kilburn street. Fall River, Mass., was
badly run down from overwork in a
cotton mill. She says:
"One day noises began in my head
and almost made me crazy. My head
felt as if a tight band had been put
around it, and the pressure and the
sounds made me so uneasy that I often
had to walk the floor all night when 1
ought to have been sleeping.. 1 was
under the care of a good physician for
some time, but I finally gave him. up
because his treatment did me no good.
"My stomach was in bad shape, and
I had smothering sensations. At such
times my, body . seemed bloodless; my
hands were like chalk and my face
turned yellow. The doctor said I had
dyspepsia in the worst form. Then my
nerves gave way and I was completely
prostrated. At night I could not sleep,
and in the daytime if I bent over to
pick up a rug the smothering sensa
tion would come on'at once.
"After I gave up the doctor, I took
all sorts of advertised medicines, with
little or no benefit. After I had used
many other kinds I read in the paper
about Dr. Williams Pink Pills. Be
fore I had quite made-up my mind
whether it was worth while to try any
thing more, my husband brought home
a box and insisted that I should take
"They soon quieted my nerves so
that I could get a good night's sleep,
which was a new experience for me.
Before I began to use them I was a
nervous wreck; I trembled at the
slightest sound. I was so weak that. I
had to sit down, and rest every few
steps when I went up stairs. Now I
can run up a whole flight at once.
The smothering sensations have gone
and the noises in my bead have stop
ped . entirely. My appearance has
greatly Improved, for friends who were
alarmed on my account before now
say, 'How well you are. looking.' My
husband spent over a hundred dollars
on treatment for, me that was .worth
less, but a few boxes of Dr. Williams'
