While vis* iting with a friend I noticed that she was taking your Wine of Cardui, and she was so enthusiastic about it that I decided to try a bottle.

Those who meet this change in ill health sel dom live ten years afterward, while a woman who lays aside the active duties of womanhood in health sel dom fails to live on in happiness, years after she has passed 60. This is truly a critical time. Mrs. Laura S. Webb, of Toledo, Ohio, recognizes the change of life as a dangerous period and she also has faith in Wine of Cardui. She writes: “As I had always been troubled more or less at the menstrual period, I dreaded until I have passed the climax. 1 do not dread it now, as I am sure that your Wine of Cardui will be of great benefit at this time.” Wine of Cardui is the remedy to re-inforce a woman against the shock that comes with the change of life. It re-establishes healthy functions after years of suffering. In doing this it has saved thousands of suf ferers just in time. Do not wait until suffering is upon you.
