by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription bo can yon be! If lifo
seems a burden to you because you are nervous, excitable-or
irritable, if' you have backache, headaches, unnatural pains
at times, it is because the functions of the feminine organs
are not being performed as nature intended. Present discom
fort may be followed by a break-down of the constitution; but
(In Tablet or Liquid Form)
can bo confidently recommended as a powerful,
Invigorating tonic. It gives strength to tlio
whole system and especially to the organs dia
.tinctly feminine. Those whose work compels
them to be too muc'?ln their feet?those over
active in enjoying themselves?all kinds of wom
en?have found the Favorite Prescription a real
blessing because of its power to bring restful
sleep and to banish mental worry and low spirits,
A Nervous Wreck Saved

Thousands of dollars would not repay me for what
Dr. Pierco'a medicines have done for me. 1 was a
nervous wreck when I began their use, and they en
tirely cared me In a ?hort time, at little coat. Now I
can Invest my money in real estate instead of doctor
hills, and I enjoy excellent health. Am never with
out your medicines. Ono thing I appreciate about
them is that $hey do not contain any alcohol.
* Several years njro I vraa completely broken down
in h?altn from over-work and beta? on my feet con

and medicine but with little result. The doctors told

One of /the recent proofs of this is the

Is Gooa Chance.
The lower counties, Lincoln. Wayne
and Clay, have not been so fully tested
as to prccludo any chance of discover
ing new producing territory. The
search for new territory in these coun
ties has been greatly reduced since
the market declined, but- with a sub
stantial lid van cc, experimental work
will be resuming. From any point of
view at this time, the West Virginia
fields look the most promising for high
grade crude. To meet the demand It
will be imperative that new producing
territory be discovered.
