THREE HELD 01
; Have Been Restored to Health By Lydla EL
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
There is no doubt about this fact Why ! during the
last 30 years we have published in the newspapers of this
country volumes of letters from women who have been re
lieved of all their suffering by the timely aid of this grand
old medicine. Letters like the following, true, genuine and
. honest expressions of gratitude coming from grateful hearts.
Surely you can believe these women.
Mrs. Ii. S. BKEXXEK, Hudson, Mich., says:
"Sometime ago I was taken with a terrible pain in my right side, sneh
sharp pains just like a knife sticking me. I tried hot applications but that
did no good. I went to our family doctor (we were living in Fayette, Ohio,
at that time) and he said it was organic inflammation. I doctored with him
a while but kept getting worse. The pain was so terrible I could hardly
stand on my feet. I would have that sharp pain in my right side, and a
dull heavy pain the whole length of my limb. I realized that something
had to be done quickly, so I looked up all of your advertisements I could,
find, and 6aw several that described nay case. I got a bottle of Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and it helped me from the first dose, and
when I had taken two bottles my trouble was gone. Your medicine has
done so much for me that I am willing you should publish this letter for the
sake of other suffering women." Mrs. L. S. Bbesxeb, Hudson, Michigan.
Mrs. Jj, E. BOWERS, Girard, Pa says:
" I take pleasure in Informing you of what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has done for me. X had a sick spell last February, and for
some-months after that I was not regular and had many bad feelings. I
was tired all the time, had dull headaches, not much appetite, and also
what the doctor called organic inflammation, xour Vegetable Compound
has entirely cured me and I feel that too much cannot be said in its praise
as I am now able to do ray own work. You are perfectly welcome to use
my testimonial for the benefit of others." Sirs. L. E. Bowebs, K.F.D. No. 1,
Mrs. ELIZABETH GEXT1XCOHE, Buffalo, N.Ysays:
"I feel that I must write to you about your wonderful remedies. About
ten years ago I was troubled with female weakness and was all run down.
I was tired all the time and could hardly walk without feeling dizzy. I
heard about Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, took it, and also
used the Sanative Wash. I got stronger, and have not had those dizzy
spells since. I feel that I owe my health to you, and hope your remedies
wiil help others as they have me. I tried moct everything I heard of, and
yours are the best medicines for women's ailments." Mrs. Elizabeth Gzjj
ttlcobe, 26 Glor Street, Buffalo, New York.
For SO years Xydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound has been the standard remedy for fe
male iUs. No one sick with woman's ailments
does justice to herself if she does not try this fa
mous medicine made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many suffering women to health.
