MRS. ELVA BARBER EDWARDS
There are three critical singes in a
woman's life which leave their mark
in her career. The first of the.so stages
is womanhood, or the change from a
enrc free girl to budding womanhood,
The second is motherhood, and the
third is Change of Life.
Perils surround each of these stages,
and most of the misery that comes
to women through ill health dates
from one or another of these im?
portant crises.
Women should remember that Lydia
B. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound
innde from native roots and herbs has
carried thousands of young girls over
the critical period of puberty, hns
prepared mothers for childbirth, and
in later years carried them snfely
through tho change of life more suc
cessrully thnn any other remedy in
tho world. Thousands of testimonials
from grateful porsons, two of which
are here published, substantiate this
fact beyond contradiction.
