On Her Feet More Than a Few
Minutes at a Time.
TVndcrgrnss, Oa. Mrs. TVlla Iong,
Of this plnre, In a recent letter, nays:
"For five or six years, I suffered agon
ies with womanly troubles.
Often, I couldn't sit m .-.'"re than a
few minutes at a time, and If I stood
on my feet long, I would faint.
I took Cardul, and It helped me Im
mediately. Now, I can do my work all
the time, and don't Buffer like I did."
Take Cardul when you feel 111 In any
way weak, tired, miserable, or under
the weather. Cardul Is a strength
building tonic medicine for women.
It has been found to relievo pain and
distress caused by womanly troubles,
and Is an excellent medicine to have on
hand at all times.
Cardul acts on the womanlv consti
tution, building up womanly strength,
toning up the nerves, and regulating
the womanly organs.
Its half century of success Is due to
merit. It has done good to thousands.
Will you try It? It may be Just what
you need. Ask your druggist about
('.mini Ho will recommend It.
