In Bad Fix
"I had a mishap at the age of 41, which left mc in bad
ftx," writes Mrs. Georgia Usher, of Conyers, Oa.
"I was unconscious for three days, and after that I
would have fainting spells, dizziness, nervousness, sick
headache, heart palpitation and many strange feelings.
"I suffered greatly With ailments due to the change of
life and had 3 doctors, but they did no good, so I concluded
to try Cardui.
"Sir.ce taking Cardui, 1 am so much better and can do
all my housework."
The Woman's Tonic
Do not allow yourself to get into a bad fix. You might
get in so bad you would find it hard to cct out.
Better take Cardui while there is time, while you are
still in moderately good health, just to conserve your strength
and keep you in tip top condition.
In this way your troubles, whatever they arc, will grad
ually grow smaller instead of larger?you will be on the
up-grade instead of the down?and by and bye you will
arrive at the north pole of perfect health.
