Are You Nervous?
What makes you nervous? It is the weakness o? your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break down, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this up! Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
I i and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by going to the
source of the trouble and building up the bodily strength.
Mrs. Grace Fortner, of Man, W. Va., took Cardui.
This is what she says about it: "I was so weak and
nervous, I could not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, I am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and I cannot say enough for Cardui, for I
know it saved my life." It is the best tonic for women.
Do you suffer from any of the pains peculiar to women?
Take Cardui. It will help you. Ask your druggist
