nothing seemed to
no me any good. A

did so and got re
lief right away. I
can certainly re
commend this valu
able medicine to
other women who
suffer, for it has
done such eood
work for me and I know it will help
others if they will give it a fair trial'

Why will women drag along from day
to day, year in and year out, suffering
such misery as did Mrs. Courtney, when
such letters ns this are continually being
published. Every woman who suffers
from displacements, irregularities, in
flammation, ulceration, backache, ner
vousness, or who is passing through the
Change of Life should give this famous
root and herb remedy, Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound, a trial. For
special advice write Lydia E. Pinkham
