Praise Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Women from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from all sections
of this great country, no city so large, no village so small
but that some woman has written words of thanks for
health restored by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound. No woman who is suffering from the ills peculiar
to her sex should rest until she lias given this famous remedy
a trial. Is it not reasonable to believe that what it did for
these women it will do for any sick woman ?

year ago I found myself a terrible sutferer. 1 had pains in both sides
and sucli a soreness l coma scarcely siraignien up at times, iily
back ached, I had no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep,
then 1 would be so tired mornings that 1 could scarcely get around.
It seemed almost impossible to move or do a bit of work and I
thought I never would bo any better until I submitted to an opera
tion. I commenced taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and soon felt, like a new woman. I had no pains, slept well, had good
appetite and was fat and could do almost all my own work for a fam
ily of four. I shall always feel that I owe my good health to your
medicine." Mrs. 1 Iaywahd Sowers, Ilodgdon, Maine.
