"Cardui Cured Me"
For nearly ten years, at different times, Mrs. Mary Jinks
of Treadway, Tenn., suffered with womanly troubles. She
says: "At last, I took down and thought I would die. I
could not sleep. I couldn't eat I had pains all over. The
doctors gave me up. I read that Cardui had helped so
many, and I began to take it, and it cut d me. Cardui
saved my life! Now, 1 can do anything."
If you are weak, tired, worn-out, or suffer from any of
the pains peculiar to weak women, such as headache,
backache, dragging-down feelings, pains in arm, sjde, hip
or limbs, and other symptoms of womanly trouble, you
should try Cardui, the woman's tonic Prepared from per
fectly harmless, vegetable ingredients, Cardui is the best
remedy for you to use, as it can do you nothing but good.
It contains no dangerous drugs. It has no bad after-effects.
Ask your druggist. He sells and recommends Cardui.
