company has failed or gone out of bus

ever that present conditions in the in

surance business were cot favorable to i
fair dividends or returns on the mon
ey invested and for that reason it was
decided to sell the policies. The holl

issued by the local company are fully

If you are a woman and you have tins symptom get
Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound without delay.
Backache seems an invention of the evil one to try
woman's souls. Only those who suffer this way can under
stand the wearing, ceaseless misery.
We ask all such women to read the following letter
for proof that Mrs. Pinkham's medicine cures backache
caused by woman's diseases.
?.IorfonN Clap. Kntncky. "I suffered two
?r;rs with female disorders, my health whs very
ad and 1 had a continual backache which was
simply awful. I could not stand on mv feet long
enough to cook a meal's victuals without my
Back nearly ktllinjr me, and 1 would have such
lrag-r1ug- sensations I could hardly hoar it. I
had soreness on each side, could not stand tiht
clot hiugr, and was irregular. I was completely
run down. On advice 1 took Lydia I. lMnk
ham's Vegetable Compound and Liver I'ills and
am enjoj mgr sthxI health. It is now more than
two years and I hae not had an ache or pain
since. 1 do nil m v own work, washinc and
everything, and never liave the backache any more. I think your
medicine is irrand and 1 praise it to all my neighbors. If you
think my testimony will help others vou may publish it." Mrs.
OUie Woodall, Morton's Cap, lventucky.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has made
thousands of cures of such cases. You notice we sav has
cured thousands of cases. That means that we are telling
you that it us done, not what we think it will do. We
are stating facts, not guesses.
We challenge the world to name another remedy for wo
man's ills which has been so successful or received so many
testimonials as has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
For 30 years Lydia IZ. Pinkham's Vejreiablo
Compound lias been the standard remedy lor
fezaale Ills. o sick woman does justice to
herself who will not try this famous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbb, and
has thousands of cures to its creAit

to WTt- ner for advice. She has
