Failed in Health
"My mother died six years ago," writes Mtss Ruth
Ward, of Jerseyville, 111.. "and left me to care for six
children. I liad never been strong; and this, with the shock
of her death, was too much for me.
"I failed in health. I was tired all the time and did
not want to go anywhere, nor care for ccmpany. I had
the headache all the time and such bearmg-down pains.
"A very dear friend adviscd me to take Cardui, as it
had done her so much good% so I commenced to use it
and now I am in good health."
The Woman's Tonic
Women's pains are relieved or prevented and women's
strength is quickly restored, by Cardui, the woman's tonic
You vourself know best if you need it, or not.
If ydu do need it, do not delay, but commence to use
ft at once. Every day of delay, only lets you slide further
down the hill. .
Don't wait, then, but begin to take Cardui today, for its
use, no matter how prolonged, cannot harm you and will
surely do you good.
