Every woman covets a
shapely, pretty figure, and
many of them deplore the
loss of their girlish forms
after marriage. The bearing

to the mother's shapeliness.

however, by the use of Mother's Friend before baby comes, as this
great liniment always prepares the body for the strain upon it, and
preserves the symmetry of her form. Mother'.5 Friend overcomes all the
danger of child-birth, and carries the expectant mother safely through
'this critical period without pain. It is woman's greatest blessing.
Thousands gratefully tell of the benefit and relief derived from tho
