*Try Cardui" writes Mrs, Z. V. Spell, of Hayne, N. C
" I was in a very low state of health, and was not able to
be up and tend to my dntie?, I did try Cardui, and soon
began to feel better. I got able to be up and help do ray
housework. I continued to take the medicine, and now I
am able to do my housework and to care for my children,
and I feel as though I could never praise Cardui enough
for the benefits 1 have received.'9
Cardui is successful because it is made especially for
women, and acts specifically on the womanly corurtitution.
Cardui does one thing, and dots it well. That explains
the great success which it has had, during the past 50 years,
in helping- thousands of weak and ailing women back to
hearth and happiness.
If you are a woman, feel tired, dull, and are nervous,
cross and irritable, if s because you need a tonic Why not
try Cardui ? Cardui builds, strengthens, restores, and acts
in every way as a special, tonic remedy for women. Test
it for yourself. Your druggist sells Cardui. Ask him.
