There are many things in the great boo& of life that everj woman ought to know and that few women do know. Every woman in the world ought to know all about her own phsical make-up. She should have a copy of Doctor Pierce's Common Sense Medical Adviser. It is a handsomely illustrated xolumc of a thousand pages, several chapters of which are devoted to the reproductive physiology of womem It is written in plain language, and contains over three hundred illustra tions and colored plates. It is now offered, paper-bound, absolutely free to any woman who will send twenty-one cents in one-cent 6tamps to cover the cost of mailing only to Dr. R. V. Pierce Buffalo, N. Y. If hand some, substantial, French cloth binding is desired, send ten cents extra, thirty -one cents in all. A w oman ought to know the vital importance of health. She ought to know that nothing can make her so miser able, or so useless in the w orld, as disease and weakness of the organs distinctly femi nine. She ought to know that this disease and weakness can be prevented and can be cured bv the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. There are three times in a woman's life when this great remedy reaches Its best usefulness when the girl becomes a woman when the woman becomes a mother and when the capacity for mother hood ceases. At these times the import ance of a perfectly healthy condition of her system is of the greatest importance. " The Favorite Prescription " is a purifying, cura tive, tonic, which works directly on one set of organs, and on no other. It cures when doctors fail, and it cures without the humiliating examinations and local treatment, so invariably insisted upon by phjsicians. It will cure any case of so called "female complaint." It soothes the nerves, makes the appetite and digestion good, and brings restful, refreshing sleep. ftM Kf MR 1 HMKIIffi mm mSm WEARY MEIANDWOMEPI Find Prompt Relief and Permanent Cure in the Wonderful Treatment of DR.

"For instance.
