The very thought of the hospital operating table and the surgeon’s knife strikes terror to her heart, and no wonder. It is quite true that some of these troubles may reach a stage where an operation is the only resource, but thousands of women have avoided the necessity of an operation by taking Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. This fact is k attested by the grateful letters they write to us after their health has been restored. These Two Women Prove Our Claim. w k ! Cary, Maine.—“ l feel it a duty I owe to all suffering women to *te!l 1 what Lydia E. Pinkham’-s Vegetable Compound did for me. One year ago I found myself a terrible sufferer. I had pains in both sides and such a soreness 1 could scarcely staighten up at times. My back ached, l had no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep, then I would be so tired mornings that.I could scarcely get around. It seemed almost im possible to move or do a bit of work and I thought I never would be 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 appe tite and was fat and could do almost all my own work for a family of (four. I shall always feel that I owe my pood health to your medicine.” —Mrs. Hayward Sowers, Cary, Me. Charlotte, N. C—" I was in bad health for two years, with pains in both sides and was very nervous. If 1 even lifted a chair it would cause a hemorrhage. I had a growth which the doctor said was a tumor and I never would get well unless I had an operation. A friend advised me to (take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegeta ble Compound, and I gladly say that I am now enjoying fine health and am the mother of a nice baby girl. Yon can use this letter to help other suffering women.”—Mrs. Rosa Sims, 16 Wyona St., Charlotte, N. C. Now answer this question if you can. Why should a wo man submit to a surgical operation without first giving Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound a trial? You know that it has saved many others—why should it fail in your case? For SO years I^ydia E. Pink!hanf*s Vegetable Compound has been the standard remedy for fe . - -1-1-1*1--’i ail ( tmale ills.

No. 1, Plumerville, Ark., says: “From a great deal of horseback riding over rough country, I began having pain across my back and kidneys. I had heard a great deal about Doan’s Kid ney Pills, and I procured a box. I had taken only one-half of the con tents before I was relieved. The other half box I gave to an acquaintance whom I knew had kidney trouble. Fine results were had i nthis case, too.” For sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cents.

COATED T0NCUE~ MEANS LAZY LIVER A LAZY LIVER NEEDS A DOSE OF DODSONS LIVER TONE GUARANTEED TO TAKE THE PLACE OF CALOMEL. When your doctor looks to see if your tongue is coated, he is trying to find out if your liver is working prop erly. A few years ago doctors had to prescribe calomel—there was noth ing else to give. Recently in many sections of the country Dodson’s Liver Tone has practically taken the place of calomel as a liver remedy. Dodson’s Liver Tone is mild, pleasant tasting and harmless—which makes it a fine med icine for use when your children be come bilious and constipated. But the most remarkable feature of Dodson's Liver Tone is the fact that Greeson Drug Co., who sells it, guarantees it absolutely. The druggist will return your money without argument if a bottle fails to give entire satisfaction. Price, 50 cents. We suggest that you get a bottle today and have it ready for the next member of your family whose liver goes wrong.—advt DAMASCUS.
