THE MOTHER'S PROBLEM
Of Raising Slrong-, Healthy Girla.
A serious problem which presents It
self to every mother with girls to raise,
in these days. The exigencies of school
life, the hurry and routine of every-day
duties, the artificial environment of
luodern civilization, make it more
rt iltieult to raise strong, healthy girls
Inan ever in the history of the world.
Boys raise themselves. Give them
room, give them lilerty, and they will
grow up healthy at least, without mueh
worrying. But the girls present a ser
How many mothers there are who aro
worrying about their daughters. Ner
vous, puny girls, with poor, capricious
appetites, bloodless, listless, a constant
anxiety to the mother. How shall she
solve her problem? To whom shall sho
turn for help? Each case is more or
less a study by Itself, and cannot bo
solved by any general rule.
This is the way one mother solved the
problem. Mrs. Schopfer, 5920 Prescott
Ave., St. Louis, Mo., in a letter to Ir.
Hartman, says: "My daughter Alice,
four years of age, was a puny, sickly,
ailing child since she was born. I was
always doctoring her. When we com
menced to use Peruna she grew strong
Another mother, Mrs. Martha Moss,
R. F. D. 5, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin,
says: "Our little eight-year-old girl
had a bad cough, and was in a general
run-down condition." She had several
doctors, who could give the child no re
lief, and the mother no encouragement.
Finally, she got a bottle of Pernna
and commenced giving it to the child,
and it proved to be just what she
needed. When she commenced taking
Peruna the child had to be carried.
Now the mother says 6he is playing
around all the time.
Her closing words were: "Yon have
done a groat deal for her. She is the
only girl we have, and it meant lots to
us to have her cured."
These are samples of many letters
which Dr. Hartman is receiving, com
ing straight from the hearts of loving
mothers. While the different schools
of medicine are bickering and differing
a to theories and remedies, Peruna
