Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
How many beautiful young girls develop into worn, listless and hopeless
women, simply because sufficient attention has not been paid to their physical
development. No woman is exempt from physical weakness and periodic
paix, and young girls just budding into womanhood should be carefully
guided physically as well as morally.
If you know of any younff lady who Is sick, and needs motherly
advice, ask her to write to Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn, Mass., who will
give her advice free, from a source of knowledge which is un-
equaled in tne country, uo not hesitate about stating details
which one may not like to talk about, and which are essential
for a full understanding of the case.
" Dear Mrs.
write and tell you of the benefit I have derived from your advice and
the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. The pains
ia my back and womb have all left me, and my menstrual trouble is
corrected. I am very thankful for the good advice you gave me, and I
shall recommend your medicine to all who suffer from female weakness."
Miss Fannie Kumpe, 1922 Chester St., Little Rock, Ark. (Dec. 16, 1900.)

woman in the land who suffers from womb troubles, inflamma

"In a peculiar sense you will find
more and more that ir will become the
duty of the negro minister to take th--unpopular
side of many public ques tions.
What we need in an increasir
degree Is that kind of leadership in

and even abused for the sake of the

so much as they need victs.

In his further remarks, he said:

that each race should try to correct

that the white race should cease abus
