If a woman is troubled in a distinctly feminine way the most delicate nerves of her body are in a state of chronic irritation. She has headache and back ache. She is lintless and spiritless. She is cross and blue. She feels that life. is not worth living: and lier temper reflects the condition of her nerves. Poor, suffering wife poor, dis tracted husband. If the husband is a cheerful, good - humored man he will sympathize if he is nervous, tired and irritable himself, he v.-ill probably go off to the club or seek elsewhere more con genial company. A sick woman is to be pitied because she is miserable and because she has not yet learned that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription will make her well The "Favorite Prescription" was de- I 111 jTx.

Esq., of AUamcut, Grundy Co., Teun. " She had uterine disease and was treated by two physicians and got no relief. At last I read about Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I sent to the d.-ug store, got one bottle and the first dose gave ease and sleep. She had not steot any for three uight6. Being sure that it would cure her I sent for five more bottles and when she had taken the sixth bottle she was sound aid, well. We now have a fine boy at our house."
