With such letters arriving every day, who could
blame anybody for becomlng enthusiastic over the
merits of a medicine like Cardui,
which has, for over 50 years, been
engaged in the work of relieving wo?
men's sufferings. Its ingredients
are puroly vegetable, harmless, yet
specific in their action on the wo
' manly organs. If you suffier, give it
a fair trial. It should help you, as it
has helped a million others. Try it.
