SAVED BY MRS. PINKHAM.
[taataa to aaa umiuaii no. 7.2,896)
"You havo saved my life, snatohed
me from tbe briuk of thegrave almost,
and 1 wish to tliankyou. About eigb
teen months ago I was a total wreek,
physieally. 1 bad been troublod with
leue. irrbcea for some time, but bad given
hurdly any atteniion to tbe troublc.
" At last inflammation of the womb
and ovariea resulted and then I suf
fero.l BfJOaiaa, had to give up my pro
u (musieian and piano player),
W BB Ionfinod to my bed and life bcoame
a terriblo cross. My husband sum
moiied tbe beat physieians, but their
benefit was but temporary at best. I
believe I should bave contraeted tho
roorphino habit under tbeir care, if my
BOBBBBBB seuse had not intervened.
" One day my husband noticed tbe ad
vertisemont of your remedies and im
mediateb/ bought me a f ull trial. Soon
the pain in my orarics was gone. I am
now well, strong and robust, wnik,
ride a wheel, and feel like a girl ba her
teens. I would not be witbout Lydia
E. Pinkham's Veftetable Compound; it
is like water of life to me. 1 am very
gratefully ?nnd sincerely your well
wisher, and I heartily recommend your
remedies. I hope some poor creaturo
may be helped tohealth by reading my
story."?Mrs. Col. E. P. liicnAODeo:*,
