Compound and five
months later I
weighed 133 pounds.
I do all the house
work and gashing for eleven and I can
truthfully say Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg

to me for I would have been in my grave
today but for it I would tell all wo
men suffering as I was to try your valu
able remedy."-Mrs. W. Green, 332
S. Addison Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.
There is hardly a neighborhood in this
country, wherein some woman has not
found health by using this good old
fashioned root and herb remedy.
If there is anything about which you
would like special advice, write to the
Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn,
