Such is the experience of Mr. .

when growing potatoes."
No Fruit or potato grower can af
ford to overlook Pyrox. The fact
that it serves two purposes is not a
mere chance but the result of scien
tifically uniting powerful insecticide

Declares Lydia E. Pinkham'a
Vegetable Compound
Saved Her Life
and Sanity.
Shamrock, Mo. "I feel it my duty
to tell the public the condition of my
1 health before using
your medicine. I had
falling, inflamma
tion and congestion,
female weakness,
pains in both sides,
backaches and bear
ing down pains, was
short of memory,
nervous, impatient,
passed sleepless
nights, and had
neither strength nor
energy. There was always a fear and
dread in my mind, I had cold, nervous,
weak spells, hot flashes over my body.
I had a place in my right side that was
so sore that I could hardly bear the
weight Of my clothes. I tried medicines
and doctors, but they did me little good,
and I never expected to get out again.
I got Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vegetable
Compound and Blood Purifier, and I cer
tainly Would have been in grave or in an
asylum if your medicines had not saved
me. But now I can work all day, sleep
well at night, eat anything I want, have
do hot flashes or weak, nervous spells.
All pains, aches, fears and dreads are
gone, my house, children and husband
are no longer neglected, as I am almost
entirely free of the bad symptoms I had
before taking your remedies, and all is
pleasure and happiness in my home."
