"My husband bought me one bottle o! Cardui, the woman's tonic. I took it ac? cording to directions and now 1 am in good health. "I think Cardui is a fine tonic for weak women." And you are not the only lady who thinks so, Mrs. Baker. Thousands, like you, have written to tell ofthe wonderful beneftt Cardui has been to them. Cardui contains no minerals, or other powerful drugs. It contains no glycenn or other mawkish-tasting ingredients. It is just a pure, natural extract, of natural vegetable herbs, that have been found to regulate the womanly functiona and strengthen the female system. All druggists sell Cardui.
