THOUGHT SHE
GOULD NOT LIVE
'Restored to Health by Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound.
Unionville, Mo.—" I suffered from a
.female trouble and I got so weak that I
could hardly.walk
across the floorwith
out holding on to
something. I had
nervous spells and
my fingers would
cramp and my face
would draw, and I
could not speak, nor
sleep to do any good,
had no appetite, and
everyone thought I
would not live.
Some one advised me to take Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I had
taken so much medicine and my doctor
eaid he could do me no good so told my
husband he might get me a bottle and I
would try it. By the time I lhad taken
it I felt better. I continued its use, and
now I am weli and strong.
"I have always recommended your
medicine ever since I was so wonder
fully benefitted by it and JI hope this
letter will be the means of saving some
other poor woman from suffering."—
Mrs. MARTHA SEAVEY, BOX 1144,
Unionville, Missouri.
The makers of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound have thousands of
such letters as that above they tell
the truth, else they could not have been
obtained for love or money. This med
icineisno stranger —it has stood the
test for years.
If there are any complications you
do not understand write to Lydia E.
