WHO SHE WAS
SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF LYDIA E. PINKHAM And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound Had Its Birth arid How the "Panic of '73' Caused It to be Offered for Public Sale In Drug Stores. This remarkable woman, whose taslden name was Bates, was born in Lynn, Mass., February 8th, 1819, com ing from a good old Quaker family. For some years she taught school, and became known as a woman of an alert and Investigating mind, an earnest seeker after knowledge, and above all, possessed of a wonderfully sympsr tnetio nature. In 1843 she marriea Isaac Pinkbaro. ft builder and real estate operator, and their early married life was marked by prosperity and happiness, . 1 hey had four children, three sons and a daughter. In those good old fashioned days It Was common for mothers to liiake their own home medicines from roots and herbs, nature's own remedies calling in a physician only in specially urgent cases, uy irauition and i'X perience many of them gained a won derful knowledge of the curative prop, ertles of the various roots and herbs. Mrs. Pinkhnm took a great Interest In the study of roots and herbs, their characteristics and power over disease. She maintained that just as nature so bountifully provides in the harvest fields and orchards vegetable foods of all kinds; so, if we but take the pains to find them, in the roots and herbs of the field there are remedies ex- ftressly designed to cure the various lis and weaknesses of the body, and It was her pleasure to search these out, and prepare simple and effective medl cines for her own family and friends Chief of these was a rare combina tion of the choicest medicinal roots and herbs found best adapted for the cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu liar to the female sex, and Lydia K.l'ink barn's friends and neighbors learned that her compound relieved and cured and it became quite popular among them. All this so far wnsdone freely, with out money and without price, as a lalor of love. But in 1873 the financial crisis struck Lynn. Its length and severity were too much for the large real estate interests f the 1'inkhain family, as this class of business suffered most from fearful depression, so when the Centen nial year dawned it found their prop erty swept away. Some other source of income had to be found. At this point Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound was made known to the world. The three sons and the dnnghter, With their mother, combined forces to restore the family fortune. They argued that the medicine which waa so good for their woman friends and neighbors waa equally good for tho women of the whole world. The Plnkhams had no monev. and little credit. Their first laboratory was the kitchen, where roots and herbe were steeped on the stove, gradually filling a gross of bottles. Then came the question of selling it, for always before they had given it away freely. They hired a joh printer to run off some pamohleta Betting forth the merits of the medi cine, now called Lydia E. Plnkham's . vegetable Compound, and these were distributed by the Pinkham sons in Boston, Mew York, and Brooklyn. The wonderful curative properties of the medicine were, to a arrest extent. self-advertising, for whoever nsed it recommended it to others, and the de mand gradually increased. In 1877. by combined efforts the fam ily had saved enough money to com mence newspaper advertising and from that time the growth and success et the enterprise were, assured, until to day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege table Compound have become house hold words everywhere, and many tons of roots and herbs are used anna ally in its manufacture. Lydia E. Pinkham herself did not live to see the great success of this work. She passed to her reward years ago, but not till she had provided means for continuing her work as effectively as she could have done It herself. During her long and eventful expe rience she was ever methodical in her work and she was always careful to pre serve a record of every case that came to her attention. The case of every sick woman who applied to her for advice and there were thousands received careful study, and the details, includ ing symptoms, treatment and results were recorded for future reference, and to-day these records, together with hundreds of thousands made since, are available to sick women the world over, and represent a vast collabora tion of information regarding the treatment of woman's ills, which for authenticity and accuracy can hardly be equaled in any library in the world. With Lydia E. Pinkham worked her daughter-in-law, the present Mrs. I'iukham. She wascarefully instructed in all her hatd-won knowledge, and for years she assisted her in her vast correspondence. To her hands naturally fell the direction of the work when its origina tor passed away. For nearly twentv- flve years she has continued it, and nothing in the work shows when tho first Lydia E. Pinkham dropped her pen, and the present Mrs. Pinkham, now the mother of a large family, took it up. With woman assistants, some a capable as herself, the present Mrs. Pinkham continues this great work. and probably from the ofllec of no other person have so many women been ad vised how to regain health. Kick wo men, this advice is "Yours for Health" freely given if you only write to ask lor it. Such Is the history of Lvdla E. Pink ham s Vegetable Compound ; made from simple roots and herbs ; the one great medicine for women s ailments. and the fitting monument to the noble woman whose name it bears. 136-1306 THIS COUPON IS GOOD FOR $1.00 ON PURCHASE U C Upon receipt of your - Address , GOOD FOR ONE DOLLAR PURCHASE Druggist's Name.
