When a woman is almost distracted from overwork, her home
is in disorder, crying children, and on top of all is suffering from
backache, bearing down pains, or some other form of feminine ills,
then she should remember that hundreds of women in just her con
dition have been restored to health and regained their youthful
strength by taking Lydia E. Pinkhams Vegetable Compound and
not rest until she has given it a fair trial.

E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
before my baby came when I could no

That wits my first experience with the
Vegetable Compound. Years after

ever had to lie down during the day
and seldom had dizzy, fainting spells.
I am now well and strong, can do all

is a comfort to me to be able to say to
other suffering women 4 take Lydia E.
