BALLOUi " If a price can be placed on pain, Mother' Friend' is worth its weight in gold as an allevi ator. My wife suffered more in ten minutes with either of her other two children than she did al together with her last, having previously used four bottles of ' Mother's Friend.' It is a blessing to any one expecting to become a mother," says a customer. Thus writes Henderson Dale, Druggist, of Canni, 111., to the Bradfield Regulator t.ompany, ot Atlanta, ua., the proprie tors and manufacturers of "Mother's Friend." This successful remedy is not one of the-vmany internal medicines ad vertised to do unreasonable things, but a scientifically prepared liniment especially effective in adding strength and elasticity to those parts of woman's organism which bear the severest strains of childbirth. - The liniment may be used at any and all times during pregnancy up to the very hour of confinement. The earlier it is begun, and the longer used, the more perfect will be the result, but it has been used during the last month only with great benefit and success. It not only shortens labor and lessens the pain attending it but greatly dimin ishes the danger to life of both mother and child, and leaves the mother in a con dition more favorable to speedy recovery. " Mother's Friend " is sold by druggists at $i.oo, or cent by express on receipt of price. Valuable book for women, "Before Baby is Born," sent free on application.
