FOR SICK WOMEN
a more potent remedy in the roots
and herbs of the field than was ever
produced from drugs.
In the good old-fashioned days of
our grandmothers few drugs were
used in medicines and Lydia E.
Pinkham, of Lynn, Mass., in her
study of roots and herbs and their
power over disease discovered and
gave to the women of the world a
remedy for their peculiar ills more
potent and efficacious than any
combination of drugs.
LYDIA E. PINKHAM
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
is an honest, tried and true remedy of unquestionable therapeutic value.
During its record of more than thirty years, its long list of actual
cures of those serious ills peculiar to women, entitles Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound to the respect and confidence ox every lair minded
person and every thinking woman.
When women are troubled with irregular or painful functions,
weakness, displacements, ulceration or inflammation, backache,
flatulency, general debility, indigestion or nervous prostration, they
should remember there is one tried and true remedy, Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound.
No other remedy in the country has such a record of cures of
female ills, and thousands of women residing in every part of the United
States bear willing testimony to the wonderful virtue of Lydia . Pink
ham's Vegetable compound and what it has done for them.
Mrs. Pinkham invites all sick women to write her for advice. She has
guided thousands to health. For twenty-five years she has been advising
sick women free of charge. She is the daughter-in-law of Lydia E. Pink
ham and as her assistant for years before her decease advised under her
immediate direction. Address, Lynn, Mass.
