.THE ARGUS, WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 24, 190G.
A TRAINED NURSE
After Years of Experience, Advises Women In
Regard to Their Health.
Mrs. Martha Pohlman
of 55 Chester Avenue,
(Newark, X. J., who is a
: graduate Nurse from the
j lilockley Training School,
tat Philadelphia, and for
six years Chief Clinic
. Nurse at the Philadelphia
; Hospital, writes the letter
printed below. She has
the advantag-eof personal
experience, besides her
and what the has to say
may be absolutely relied
Many other women are
afflicted as she was. They
can regain health in the
same way. It is prudent
to heed such advice from
such a source.
Mrs. Pohlman writes:
' I am firmly persuaded,
after eight years of experience
with Lvdia E. Pinkhatn's
Vegetable Compound, that it
S the safest and best medicine
for any suffering woman to
Immediately after my
marriage I found that my
health began to fail me. I be
came weak and pale, with
evere bearing-down pains,
fearful bac Lathes and fre
quent dizzy spells. The doctors
prescribed for me, yet I did
not improve. I would bloat
after eating, and frequently
become nauseated. 1 bad
pains down through my limbs so I could
hardly walk. It was as lad a case of female
trouble as I have ever known. Lydia E.
Pinkhatn's Vegetable Compound, however,
cured me within four months. Since that
time I have had occasion to recommend it to
a number of patients suffering from all
forms of female difficulties, and I find that
while it is considered unprofessional to rec
ommend a patent medicine, I can honestly
recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, for I have found that it cures
f eniale ills, where all ot her medicine fails. It
is a grand medicine for sick women."
Money cannot buy such testimony as
this merit alone can produce such re
sults, and the ablest specialists now
agree that Lydia E. Pinkhatn's Vege
table Compound is the most univer
sally successful remedy for all female
diseases known to medicine.
When women are troubled with ir
regular, suppressed or painful periods,
weakness, displacement or ulceration
of the female organs, that bearing

pound at once removes such troubles.
No other female medicine in. the
world has received such widespread
and unqualified endorsement.
The needless suffering of women from
diseases peculiar to their sex is terrible
to see. The money which they pay to
lectors who do not help them is an
enormous waste. Thie pain is cured
and the money is saved by Lydia E
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.

Hit Duck Raffles. At their meeting
it Turner hall Monday evening,' be
sides deciding on Sunday closing, the
Retail Butchers association also took
ip for discussion the matter of duck
afhes In saloons. Some of the butch
;rs were in favor of taking radical ac-
ion against the saloon keepers that
conducted the raffles, which they urged
vere just as bad as slot machines, and
mould be stopped just as effectually as
he machines have been. "We have to

lo Sunday mornings is to go to a sa
oon and raffle for ducks. They can'!
ret their meat at a meat market, so

others argued that a request that the
;aloons drop the duck raffles would
rouably be just as effective as a move-
nent to stop them by going to law. and
hat at any rate this' means shou'd be
ried first. Xo definite action was tak-
n, the matter going over for further
liscussion at a later meeting.

back by a crash and u scream. The lit

the clothing of the baby and the lace
curtains were on lire. The mother
grabbed the baby up and smothered

had been painfully burned. An alarm

He found that the burns, while very

presenta! ion last season and is said to
have scored u very great success. Ev
erybody likes melodrama if it is of the
right sort and is well played. "A Sis

a clean, wholesome play, with a good
heart to heart story, thrilling situa
tions and an abundance of delightful
comedy. It will be handsomely stag
ed with elaborate scenic effects, and

clever emotional actress. Ethel Har
