Positivfilv Relieves the
More Convincing Proof.
When Lydia E. Pinkhnm's Vegetable
Compound was first introduced its curative
powers were doubted and had to
be proved. But the proof came, and
gradually the use of it Bpread over tho I
whole country. Now that hundreds of
thousands of women have experienced
the most beneficial effects from its use
its value has become generally recognised
and it is now the standard medicine
for women's ills.
The following letter is only one of the
thousands on our files.
Dennison, Texas.? "! cannot feel
that I have done my duty until I tell
what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
.Compound has done for me. I suffered
from female troubles so I could hardly
drag around and do my work. I was
very nervous, and had dizzy spells, heat
.dashes, and headaches until life was a
burden. My husband brought mo a bottle
,of. Lydia E. Plnkham s Vegetable
Cothpound and I soon began to improve.
I continued its use and am now free
from all pains and aches that made life
a burden.. 'You may use this letter in
any way you'like for I want the world

B2HMf3tham's Vegetable Compound is."
