Two Ladies In Mt. Pleasant Are!
Healthy and Well, To-Day,
Thanks to Cardui.
j Mi. Pleasant, Tcnn.?Mrs. M. E. Rail,
of this place, ;ay=: "I was a great suf?
ferer for .two years, anrl was very weak,
but learner] about Cardui, and decided to
try it. Cardui is all you claim for it, and
I rribrc. Now, I have gained in weight, and
am in perfect health. I can't say too
much for Cardui, for it saved my life.
My daughter, when changing into
womanhood, got in very bad health. I
gave her Cardui, and now she is enjoying
the best of health. Cardui is worth its
weight in gold. I recommend it for sick
women, whether young or old."
Being composed exclusively of harmless
vegetable ingredients, with a mild and
gentle medicinal action cm the womanly'
constitution, Cardui is the best medicine
for weak, sick girls and women.
If you arc sick and miserable, or suffer
from any of the aches and pains due to
womanly weakness and disease, Cardui is
probably just what you need. Cardui
helps sick women back to health and
i strength. It has been doing this for more
than 50 years.
Cardui should surely help you, as it
has helped a million others during this half
century of time.
It is certainly worth trying.
