The hand that rocks the oradle Is the
hand that rules the world.
The influence of a mother, the influence
f a sister, the influence of a wife. The
world feels this influence. It shapes the
destiny of men. For a mother's sake, for
a sister's sake for a wife's sake a man will
strive to be honorable. He becomes am
bitious. He becomes successful. Happy
the household where the women folks are
cheerful, contented and happy. How
pitable the home where mother, sister or
wife lies ill. How grand the remedy that
is suited to the ills of womanhood and that
will restore nervous, sickly, aching, de
spondent women to health and strength.
Sech a remedy is I)r. John Bull's Sarsa
parilla. It is eminently the best remedy
for the weaknesses and distress incident to
and following a condition of disordered
female functions. It revives, strengthens,
and regulates the feminine constitution.
Mrs. Mary F. Wilkinson, Jackson, Tenn.,
"I was a very healthy woman before my
marriawge but dating from a miscarriage,
my health got to be very bad. My complex

sleepless; I grew thin and despondent. My
appetite was fickle, and what I ate laid like
lead upon my stomach. My habits were ir
regular, and I suItered much pain. I used
presrlptlons of suveral good doctors, but
my aillments increased. A bearing down
pain alout my back and loins seemed as if
It would kill use. I was ,ubject to frequent
headaches and bilious attacks. In thiscon
dition I began a use of Dr. Bull's Sarsapa
drlla. It seemed precisely suited to my
condition. Every spoonful seemed to go
to the right spot. I s.oon showed great im
provement, and my friends rejoiced at my
retilrnlg health. I used it during the
months of March and April, and give It all
the credit for my present enjoyment of life
and good health. It Is a boon to weak and

wonderfully, also greatly improved my
looks. I hiaderuptions on niy skin but they
have disappeared. and I was very weak,
with no appetite, and at tinmes suffered great
pain, but now I feel quite well again."
