Avdre??-Blocd Batui Co., Atlanta, Ua, Only the tor? ture* of the me? dia; vain rack are comparable to the agonies which many women suffer through the peculiar weaknesses ami diseases of their deli? cate, feminine structure. Nothing less than unbearable torment would induce sensitive-minded women to submit to the intolerable methods of the average doctor in dealing with diseases of this nature. That there is "a better way" than these detestable "examinations" and "local ap? plications " is a truth which some women have vet to learn, although thousands are already rejoicing in the knowledge. They have found in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre? scription the one unfailing Jemedy which heals fctuiuiuc weaknesses ; t their very source. This marvelous "Prescription" restores absolute health to the internal organism; stops weakening drains and ?I ecrated conditions, gives clastic strength to the supporting ligaments, vitality to the n?rve centers, and complete womanly vigor to the entire constitution. It is the perfect fortifier and regulator of women at c.very critical period in their developtne'nt; from the time when they merge into womanhood until the "change of life." It is the one medicine which makes motherhood safe and almost free from pain. A laiy living nt 7 Park Avenue. Chicago, Ills., Mrs. limily Huvre, writes: " I, myself, suffered a loug time frem female weakness and seemed to be going Into a decline. Took several bottles nf your 1 l'avorile Prescription ' and it saved me from n crenl deal of suffering.
