It is a sight entirely too infrequent. Too often the baby is minv and neevish and the mother sickly, fretful, and nervous. The woman who neglects to take proper care of herself and who therefore suffers from weakness and disease of the organs of wo manhood cannot be healthy and amiable. Her cnimren will oe puny and ailing ana happiness will pass bv on the other side. There is no reason why every woman should not be the healthy, happy mother of robust and playful children if she will take tht proper care of herself. Proper care means. nrst 01 an, proper medicine for her ailments. Dr. 1'ierce'a Favorite Prescription will make any woman strong and well in a wo manly way. It cures all weakness and dis ease of the distinctly feminine organism. It prepares a woman for motherhood. It in sures the health of the baby. It makes parturition easy and nearly painless. Over go, 000 women have testified to its virtues, in writing. Druggists sell it and have no substitute "just as good." The druggist who tries to force something else upon you is not an honest man. lie is trifling with your life and happiness for the sake of a greater profit to himself. Mrs. F. E. Forgcy. of Cants, Keyapnha. Co., Neb., writes: " I write to you again cuuecrning my daughter, Mrs. I). BilhuK. she has taken two bottles of ' Favorite Prescription ' and two of 'Golden Medical Discovery.' She thinks the medicines did her a world of good. She was con fined the 15th of February.
