Advice, Took Cardui
And Is Now Well.
Hixson, Tenn.?"About 10 years ago
I tvas" says Mrs. J. B. Gadd, ol '
this placo. "X sufrered with a pain in
my left side, could not sleep at night j
with this pain, always in the left
side...
My doctor told me to use Cardul. I
took one l.ottle, which helped me and
after my baby came, I was stronger
and better, but the pain was Btill
there.
I at first, let It go, but began to get 1
weak and in n run-down condition, J
so I decided to try somo mora Cardul, I
which I did.
This last Cardul which I took made
mo much better, in fact, cured me. It j
has been a number of years, still I
have no return of this trouble. j
1 feel it was Cardul that cured me.
and I recommend it as a splendid female
tonic."
Don't allow yourself to become
weak and run-down from womanly
troubles. Take Cardul. It should surely
help you. as it has so many thousands
of other women in the past 40
years. Headache, backache, sideache,
nervousness, sleeplessness, tired-out
feeling, are ail signs of womanly trouble.
Other women get relief by taking
