Thomas Moore, wittiest of poels, wrote: "I find the doctors and the sages Have differed In all climes and And two In fifty scarce agree." :igcs, Doctors do disagree about your disease, mio physician telling you ono thing and nno another, but the reason for this Is plain. It Is becaui-e you consult ordinary jiraotltloners, whose time Is spent among their fover patients. Such physicians liave no experience In chronic cases like yours. If you wish to learn ej.actly what j-nur complaint Is, by all meant, consult filled specialist, a P '"- the treat irv-nt of nervous, -hronlc and lingering diseases a special lile work, t ml who therefore knows from vast exporl- rncn jut what your trouble, is tuid pri-i-iM-ly how to euie it. Why not, for In Mance, consult Dr. Greene of 34 Temple Place, Hostou, Mas" , about your case? Ton can do fo without char-jo or i ovt, either by calling or writing to him, for ho gives consultation .mil advice absolutely free. Ho makes this class uf dlseaso a specialty, has sucn and ruied thousands of cases like yours, In fact, he has tho largest praetico and greatest success In fining dlseaeh of nny physician In tho world. Ills medhineH also differ from Ihosn used by other doctors, for he uses no poisonous ilmps, but curih Ms patients With harmless vegutublr- mnllriuvK, which, lx-ciiu;-e they act In harmony with tilt; laws of life, ,n always curative and htrengthening. One of his medical dis coveries, Dr. Greene's N'ervura blood and nerve remedy, Is Uhed throughout the ivllizril world, und he has discovered no le-H wonderful cuics for all fornm mid conditions of disease, Why not consult lilm ct onci? If ou cannot call, write lilm all about your compl.tlntR fnely, fully and In perfect confidence, It will cost you nothing to learn ix.i-tly what ills you, and Ids counsel und advlco euro to do you good, Tinvnii Pdi! nrv puimifd n rAV IIONOIl FOP UL.

THE RIGHT OF HEALTH can be assured to ninety-eight women out of every hundred. This assurance is given by Dr. Pierce after more than thirty years' experience in the treatment and cure of female diseases, in which time he has confidentially treated, with assistance of his staff of trained specialists, over half a million ailing women. CONSIDER CAREFULLY THESE FACTS A woman's general health depends on the local health of the delicate, womanly organs. When these are deranged or diseased, the complexion becomes sallow or muddy, there are dark rings under the eyes, the buck aches, there is nervousness, restlessness and irritability. Following debilitating drains or female weakness, the body loses its roundness as the face loses its fairness. Cure these local diseases, drive out these aches and pains, and the complexion becomes bright and clear and the body regains its graceful lines and curves. WOnAN'S LOCAL HEALTH can be restored. Facts prove it. Ninety-eight times in every hundred cases, female diseases are cured by Dr. Pierce. This great percentage is not based upon the treatment and cure of a few hundreds, but upon the treatment and cure of more than five thousand hundreds. HALF A MILLION WOHEN, and more, have been restored to the enjoyment of the right of health by Dr. R. V. Pierce. Are you one of tlie two women whose condition can not be perfectly cured ? Or are you one of the ninety-eight who can be perfectly and permanently cured by Dr. Pierce ? You can find out with little trouble and no expense. Any sick woman is invited to consult Dr. Pierce by letter absolutely without charge or fee. Write fully and fearlessly.
