It Is astonishing how great a change a few years of married life often make lu tho appearance and disposition of many women. The freshness, tho charm, tho hrillianco vanish like tho bloom from a peach which Is rudely handled. Tho matron Is only a dim shadow, a faint echo of tho charming maiden. There are two reasons for this change. Ignorance and neglect. Fow young women appreciate tho shock to tho system through tho chango which comes with marrintm and motherhood. Many neglect to deal with tho unpleasant pelvic drains and weak nesses which too often oomo with mar riage and motherhood, not understanding that this secret drain Is robbing the cheek of It.s freshness and tho form of Its fairness.

Invalids' Hotel and Surgical' InstitutoJ OPERATIONS Two Grateful Letters from Women Who Avoided Serious Operations. Many Women Suffering from Like Conditions Will Be Interested. When a physician tells a woman, Buf fering from female trouble, that an operation is necessary it, of course, frightens her. The very thought of the operatiug table aud the knife strikes terror to her heart. As one woman expressed it, when told by her physician that sho must undergo an operation, she felt that her death knell had sounded. Our hospitals are full of women who are there for just such operations! It is quite true that these troubles may reach a Btaure where an operation is the only resource, but such cases are much rarer than is generally supposed, because a great many women have ben cured by Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound after tho doctors had said an operation must bo per formed. In fact, up to the point where the knife must be used to secure instant relief, this medicine is certain to help. Tho strongest and most irrateful statements possible to malce come from women who, by talcing Lyrtui IS. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound, have escaped serious operations. Martrrite Ryan, Treasurer of St. Andrew's Society, Indianapolis, Ind., writes of her euro as follows: Doar Mrs. Plnklmm: ' I cannot Had words to express my thanks for Uio good Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegotrtblo Compound did me. Tho doctor said I could not got well unless I hud an oixjrntion for tho troublo from which I suffrrou.

"To my surprise tho uleoration healed, all the bad symptoms disappeared, ami I aniono) more strong, vigorous and well; and I can not express my tuauka for what It has done forme." Serious feminine troubles are steadi ly on the increase among women and before submitting to an operation every woman should try Lydia R. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and write Mrs. Pinkham ut Lynn, Mass. for advice. Vor thirty years Lydia R. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been curing the worst forms of femalo complaints, all functional troubles, intlammatiou, ulceration, falling and displacement, weakness, irregularities, indigestion and nervous prostration. Any woman who could read tho many grateful letters on tile in Mrs. Pinkham's ofllce would be convinced of the efficiency of her advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
