HUSBAND RESCUED DESPAIRING WIFE After Four Year* of Discouraging Conditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave Up in Despair* Husband Came to Rescue. Catron, Ky.—ln an interesting letter from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock writes as follows: “1 suffered for four years, with womanly troubles, and during this time, i could only sit up for a little while, and could not walk anywhere at nil. At times, I would have severe pains in my left side. The doctor was called in, and his treat ment relieved me for a while, but I was soon confined to my bed again. After that, nothing seemed to do me any good. 1 had gotten so weak I could not stand, and I gave up in despair. At last, my husband got me a bottle ofi Cardui, the woman’s tonic, and 1 com-J inenced taking it. From the very first dose, 1 could tell it was helping me. 1 can now walk two miles without its tiring me, and am doing my work/' If you are all run down from womanly troubles, don’t give up in despair. Try Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped more than a million women, in its 60 years of wonderful success, and should surely help you, too. Your druggist has sold Cardui for years. He knows what it will do. Ask him. He will recom mend it. Begin taking Cardui today. Write to: Chattanooga Medicine Cos.. Ladies' Advisory Dept., ehauanooga.
