Scores of Women
m homes, stores, offices and factories are not fit to be at work.
They toil on day after day and year after year suffering
with distressing weaknesses and derangements, hoping against
hope that they will soon feel better, but how can they hope
to do good work or escape permanent invalidism?
Such women are in danger of derangement of women's functions. They
owe it to themselves to try that good old fashioned root and herb remedy
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, jvhich for more than forty
years has been restoring American Women to health and strength.
Here is a Notable Example
Joplin, Missouri. "I took Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound to
see if it really would do as it was ad
vertised and it sure did, and more. I
was weak and could notdo much
work, had bearing down pains and had
to go to bed. I learned about the
Vegetable Compound from my mother
and my husband told me to get it.
After taking one bottje I was able to
be on my feet most of the time and
do my work again. I have a baby
eleven months old and I have done all
my own work, even the washing and
ironing since she was three weeks old.

cine to. everyone who complains of
female trouble and I am more than
willing for you to use my testimonial.

years with pains in my sides, hips and
legs and a terrible backache. I could
not do any work at all. I was treated
by many physicians but they did not
help me. I read in one of your books
where other women have been helped
by Lydia E. Pinkhams Vegetable

me very much so that now I can do
