After The Grippe
"I am much pleased, to be able to write and thank
you for what Cardui has done for me," writes Mrs. Sarah
J. Gilliland, of Siler City, N. C.
"Last February, I had the Grippe, which left me in
bad shape. Before that, 1 had been bothered with female
trouble, for ten years, and nothing seemed to cure it.
"At last, I began to take Cardui. 1 have taken only
three bottles, but it has done me more good than all the
doctors or than any other medicine I ever took."
The Woman's Tonic
For the after-effects of any serious illness, like the
Grip, Cardui is the best tonic you can use.
It builds strength, steadies the nerves, improves the
appetite, regulates irregularities and helps bring back the
natural glow of health.
Cardui is your best friend, if you only knew it.
Think of the thousands of ladies whom Cardui has
helped! What could possibly prevent it from helping you?
Remember you cannot get the benefit of the Cardui
Ingredients in any other medicine, for they arc not for sale
in any drug store except in the Cardui bottle. Try Cardui.
