I suffered so verv much. that I became down in mind, and as help less as a baby. I was in the worst kind oi shape, was unable to do any work. I began taking Cardui, the woman's tonic, and got relief from the very first dose. By the time I had taken 12 bot tles, my health was completely restored. I am now 43 years years old, but feel as good as I did when only 16. Cardui certainly saved me from losing my mind, and I feel it my duty to speak in its fa''or. I wish I had some power over poor, suffering women, and could make them know the good it would da them." If you suffer from any of the ailments peculiar to women, it will certainly be . worth your while to give Cardui a trial.
