"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, I1L "For
nearly a year, 1 could not walk, without holding my sides.
1 tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint. I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. 1 am in
fine health at 52 years."
We have thousands of such letters, and more art
arriving dairy. Such earnest testimony from those who
have tried it, surely proves the great value of this vegeta
ble, tonic medicine, for women.
Cardui relieves women's sufferings, and builds weak
women up to health and strength. It you are a woman,
give it a trial It should help you, for it has helped a mil
lion others. It Is made from pure, harmless, hero Incrredi
ents, which act promptly and surely on the womanly organs.
It is a good tonic Try it 1 Your druggist sells it
