Grandmother's Medicines
OUT grandmothers were wise in the
virtues of the herbs of the field. They
used, to gather and store roots and
herbs and use them to cure the ail
ments of their families—'wormwood,
thoroughwort, Bage, rue, camomile—
the list might go on and on of the
healing plants with which they made
us familiar.
Now their grand-daughters get the
extracts from Just euoh good old
roots and herbs, from the nearest
druggist, ready prepared for use. One
such medicine, which women find
best for their own ailments, is the
well known Lydla E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. Advertise
