It Is the duty of every expectant
mother to prepare her system for the!
coming of her little one; to avoid as
far as possible the suffering of such;
occasions, and endeavor to pass,
through the crisis with her health1
and strength unimpaired. This she'
may do through the use of Mother's
Friend, a remedy that has been so
long in use. and accomplished soj
much good, that it is in no sense an
experiment, but a preparation which
always produces the best results. It
is for exernal application and so pen-1
etrating in its nature as to thoroughly
lubricate every muscle, nerve and ten?
don involved during the period before
baby comes. It aids nature by ex?
panding the skin and tissues, relieves
tenderness and soreness, and perfectly
prepares the system for natural and
safe motherhood. Mother's Friend
has been used and endorsed by thou?
sands of mothers, and its use will
prove a comfort and a benefit to any
woman in need of such a remedy.
Mother's Friend
is sold at drug
stores. Write for
