Observing and intelligent women who have used Puine's Celery Compound bare noted well the loot that as a spring medicine it quickly regulates the bowels, clears the whites oftlie eyes of that com mon jaundiced look and gives a bloom of health to the face that it never possessed before. Another important proof of the invigorating power of raine's Celery Compound Is Its effect on the pulse, which becomes full, firm and regular. Weak, ex hausted, nervous, irritable and worried women tmd that I'alne's Celery Compound counteracts the ex hausting strain of work and worry by Its strong Inducement to the delicate tissues to take more nourishment; it induces the nerves and brain to feed themselves more liberally, and it enriches the blood and regulates the flow. Mrs. Nellie Morse Taylor, Solon, Ohio, sends the following testimonial letter for the benefit of weak and run down women: "Some years ago I had a severe attack of the grippe which left my head and spine In a very bad shape. Sometimes I thought I should lose my mind I was so nervous. I could not sleep more than two hours a night. After a year with the doctor I had run down so 1 weighed only one hun dred and sixteen pounds. I then began on Paine's Celery Compound, and that great medicine cured me and built me up to one hundred and llfty pounds. I would not be alive today had it not been for the Compound. It cures all nerve troubles." goods with Diamond Dye cot ton colors. Will not crock or smut. - ? /X/ |Cal. Lemon=C15iniH. f Peaches, $ 1.98 Poz-: !)
