than superior muscular ability, for

Mrs. Baker So Weak Could
Not Do Her Work Found
Relief In Novel Way.
Adrian, Mich. "I suffered terribly
with female weakness and backache and
got so weak that I
could hardly do my
work. When I
washed my dishes I
had to sit down and
when I would sweep
the floor I would get
so weak that I would
have to get a drink
every few minutes,
and before I did my
dusting I would have
to lie down. I got
so poorly that my folks thought I was
going into consumption. One day I
found a piece of paper blowing around
the yard and I picked it up and read it.
It said 'Saved from the Grave, and
told what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
ble Compound has done for women. I
showed it to my husband and he said,
' Why don't you try it ? ' So I did, and
after I had taken two bottles I felt
better and I said to my husband, 'I don't
need any more,' and he said 'You had
better take, it a little longer anyway.'
Sol took it for three months and got
well and strong. Mrs. Alonzo E.

In these words is hidden the tragedy
of many a woman, housekeeper or wage
earner who supports herself and is often
helping to support a family, on meagre

should remember that there is one tried
and true remedy for the ills to which all
women are prone, and that is Lydia E.
