r- A woman who is sick and suffering, and won't at least
try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's
. Vegetable Compound, is to blame for her own wretched
There are literally hundreds of thousands of women in
the United States who have been benefited by this famous
old remedy, which was produced from roots and herbs over
thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman s suffering.
Read what these women say :
Camden, X. T. . It is with pleasure that I send my testimo
nial for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, hoping it
may induce other suffering women to avail themselves of the
benefit of this valuable remedy.
I suffered from pains in my back and side, sick headaches,
no appetite, was tired and nervous all the time, and so weak I
could hardly stand. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
' made me a well woman and this valuable medicine shall
always have my praise." Mrs. W. P.Valentine, 1)012 Lincoln
i Ave., Camden, X. J. '
Erie, Pa. "I suffered for five years from female troubles, and
at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors but they did
me no good. My sister advised me to try Lydia K. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and it has made me well and strong. I
hope all suffering women will just give Lydia K. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial, for it is worth its weight in gold."
M rs. J. P. Kndlich, It. F. 1. 7, Kric, Pa,.
Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we pub
lish are genuine, is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had the virtue to help
these women it will help any other woman who is suffcr
. ins from the same trouble.
For ftO years Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for
female ills. Xo sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousand of cures to its credit.
If the slightest trouble appears which
you do not understand, write to Mrs.
Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., for her advice it is
free and always, helpful.

Rochester People Greatly Interested in
the Generous Offer of the T.
H. Thomas Drug Store.
The people have already demon
strated that they would rather trust
a man who is naturally honest, than
one who was honest only because he
had to be.
The T. II. Thomas Drug store has
a firmly established reputation for
square dealing and sterling honesty.
When they told the people that Rex
all Remedies are the purest and most
dependable remedies that it is possi
ble for modern science to produce,
and that they would tell the public
exactly what each one of these 300
remedies contained, and that they
sold Rexall Remedies on their own
personal guarantee that they would
give entire satisfaction or the medi
cine would not cost the user a single
cent, they were believed. -v
Ever since this announcement the
T. II. Thomas Drug store has been
crowded by people buying Rexall
Remedies; all of which proves the
T. H. Thomas Drug store has the
confidence of the people and that
honesty is the best policy.
There is no "cure-all" among the
Rexall Remedies there are 300 dif
