I write this to try to explain my use and also to thank you for the great benefit I have derived from the use of your Wine of Cardui. I am 29 years old and have been married 12 years and have six chi'dren. I was taken last June with something like smothering spells. My flesh felt dead. I had heart palpitation ; seemed like my lungs were full of needles. I had a burning sensation right under my left breast i was short of breath. I could not hold sti'l at all. I had six doctors but none of them did me any good. The last one said my womb was bent backwards. Ilr straightened it and then it came down. I had hat Is called falling of the womb. The doctor gave me a sup. porter and a pessary. I had no stomach to eat and was io weak that I could hardly walk across the room. I have taken six bottles of Wine of Cardui and it has helped me. My monthly sickness stopped on me and Wine of Cardui corrected that so that my periods are regular now and I feel better than I have In nine months. I can do all my housework and I go to see my neighbors on foot Mrs. UZZIE MORGAN. Wine of Cardui in curing Mrs. Morgan proved itself worthy of its reputation as the "leading female remedy made". Mrs. Morgan was suffering agonies continually, with six doctors around her. But Wine of Cardui proved to be the remedy she needed. There are thousands of women to-day who need WINE CARDUI who would be cured of every pain as easily as Mrs. Morgan was. It will cure YOU the same as it cured her. Do you know that you can purchase a bottle of Wine of Cardui at the nearest drug store for $1.00, and. by treating yourself in the privacy of your own home, gti relief from all those painful diseases to which women are subject? Is not that preferable to the dreaded examination, which is Inseparable from the " doctoring" of a local practician ? At least try Wine of Cardui. We believe it will cure you at home.
