The door of health stands open to every woman who will enter. All that she needs is the key and a little knowledge. The knowledge that she needs is concerning her own nature, her own physical make-up and the principal cause of ill-health in women. When a woman suffers from headaches and pains In the back and sides, and burn ing and dragging sensations and the weak ness, nervousness and despondency that are caused by diseases peculiar to her sex, she cannot enjoy good general health. The key to the door of health the cure for all disorders of this description is Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It Is a medicine specially devised for disorders of this na ture and no other. It is the invention of an eminent and skillful specialist, Dr. R. V. Pierce, for thirty years chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgi cal Institute, at Buffalo. N. Y. When a woman writes to Dr. Pierce she consults a physician who has practiced for thirty years right in one place, and who was some years ago honored by his own townspeople by an election to the National Congress. He will answer letters from women free of charge. All professional correspondence is regarded as sacredly confidential.
