" 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.
