It went from bad to worse after I married, and in ten years 1 was a perfect wreck. .Morphine injections were the fitly relief I could get. When almost in despair I heard of Wine of Cardui. 1 h ive used it with a little Black-Draught and am now perfectly well. Airs. W. SANDERSON. A woman who has suffered ten years with Irregular menstruation, leucorrhoca, falling of the womb or any other "female trouble" has simply endured a living death. No pen can express the joy and gladness that fills her breast when she has finally drawn herself away from the clutches of these dis? eases. No woman should ever permit herself to get into such a distressing condition. The trouble should be stamped out at the start. If mothers will give young girls a little Wine of Cardui as they approach puberty, after-life will be practically free from danger. The organs of generation will be strong and well?fully prepared for wifchood and motherhood. Even up to the Change of Life there is not likely to be any serious visitation of sickness. When that period arrives, Wine of Cardui will again be needed to assist Nature in making the radical change. A few doses of Wine of Cardui at the right time make a great difference in a woman's life. lAOIES" ADVISORY DEPARTMENT. For ndrloo In cit*c* requiring spr? Olal directions. oJJro?.
