Watoga^.'Va.—Mrs. S. W. Glad well,
of this town, says: "When about 15 years
uf age, I suffered greatly ... Sometimes
would go a month or two,, and I had
terrible headache, backache, and bearing
down pains, and would just drag and
had no appetite. Then ... it would last
... two weeks, and was so weakening,
<nd my health was awful.
My mother bought me a bottle of
Cardui, and l began to improve after
taking the first bbttle, so kept it up till 1
look three... 1 gained, and was well
and strong, and 1 owe it all to Cardui.
1 am married now and have 3 children
. .. Have never had to have a doctor for
female trouble, and just resort to Cardui
if I need a tonic,
what it has done for me, so as to help
1 am glad to testify to
others."
If you are nervous or weak, have head
aches, backaches, or any of the other
ailments so common to women, why not
give Cardui a trial? Recommended by
many physicians. In use over 40 years.
Begin taking Cardui today. It may
be the very medicine you need.
