When strong, vigorous women feel the delight of planning for spring adornment and the most becoming headdress. Spring has delights for most of womenkind except the run down, worn-out woman who feels that she has passed a miserable ex istence through the winter by reason of the ills that women are heir to, and the spring finds her weakened and debilitated. She has no ambi tions to look pretty or pleasing because her strength has been drained away by periodical weak nesses that have sapped her strength and vigor. Her eyes are dull, her complexion sallow, and she feels a burden to her husband, family and friends. This is the time when she most requires a tonio adapted to her pecu- liar needs, a prescription scientifically compounded of vegetable ingredients by a physician of high stand ing and large experience who has made a study of organism of women, h i I-.". the treatment for the delicate Such a tonic and corrective is found in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, supplemented when desired by the medical counsel and advice of Dr. R. V. Pierce, whose long experience and treat success has placed him at the head of specialists in the treatment and cure of diseases peculiarly womanly. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a purely vegetable preparation, containing no alcohol and being entirely free from opium, cocaine and all other narcotics. It cannot disagree with the most delicate constitution. It cures headache, nervousness, backache, sleeplessness and other ills by curing the womanly diseases which cause these ailments. It establishes regularity, dries unhealthy drains, heals inflammation and ulceration and cures female weakness. It makes weak women strong and sick women well. , "When I commenced the nse of your medicines I was quite run-down in strength; was weak an3 tired most of the time," writes Mrs. S. L,. Tupper, of Sheboygan Falls, Wis. "After taking six bottles of 'Favorite Prescription and six of Golden Medical Discovery,' I felt like a different person, and was able to do my work without knowing what it was to feel tired. My complexion was also greatly benefited." "I feel that I would like to give a word of praise to Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. Katie Oakes, of Grand Junction, Colo. " Had suffered with uterine trojtble for four years and never found anything that did me more good than the ' Favorite Prescription.' I have gained in flesh and feel better than I did when under the doctor's care. Have the greatest faith in all of Dr. Pierce's medicines." "I suffered for eight years with female weakness," writes Mrs. Emma Ferrell, of Unity, N. C. WI have taken three bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, which cured me. I have good health now." w I was troubled with congestion of the uterus and female weakness for five years," writes Mrs. Robert Kerwin of Albert, Hastings Co., Ont. "Was so weak and nervous I could hardly do any work. Had severe pain in back also dizziness and pain in head. My heart would beat so hard and fast at times I would have to tit st ill till I pot all right again, but after taking four bottles of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and one of his ' Golden Medical Discovery,' I am entirely well." Few women understand how closely the general physical health is linked with the local womanly health. For this reason many of those who fall off in flesh and grow sallow of skin waste time and money in treatments intended to develop the form and improve the complexion. Women who Lave been cured of womanly ills by the use of " Favorite Prescription " have found that when the local womanly health is established the general health is also "restored. The body gains in flesh and the complexion is improved. These facts prove the far reaching benefits which follow the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. And these benefits are not temporary but permanent, for the cures effected by this medicine are radical and complete, and the results are as lasting as the cures themselves. Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by letter, free. All letters are held as strictly private, and the written confidences of women are guarded by the same strict professional privacy observed by Dr. Pierce and his staff in personal consultations with weak and sick women at the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y. Addresss Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, IT. Y. " Favorite Prescription " makes weak women strong, sick women well.
