pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able' to cure in all its stages, and
that Is Catarrh- Hall's Catarrh Cure

tho medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutinnnl treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure Is ttVj.i internally, actingdirectly
upon tho blood and mucous surfaces of
tho system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution nnd nsiisttng nature in do
ing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers that

case that It fails to euro. Send for list

" I had been troubled, a liltle, for nearly 7 years," writes
Mrs. L. Fincher, in a letter from Peavy, Ala., "but I was
not taken down, until March, when I went to bed and had
to have a doctor. He did all lie could for me, but I got no
better. I hurt all over, and I could not rest At last, I tried
Cardui, and soon I began to improve. Now I am in very
good health, and able to do all my housework."
You may wonder why Cardui is so successful, after
other remedies have failed. The answer is that Cardui is
successful, because it js composed of scientific ingredients,
that act curatively pn the womanly system. It is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It builds, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing: women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take Cardui. It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druggists.
