THEY WANT TO TELL
These Grateful Women Who Have Been Helped by Mrs. Pinkham. Women who have suffered severely and been relieved of their ills by Mrs. Pinkham’s advice and medicine are constantly urging publication of their statements for the benefit of other wo men. Here are two such letters: Mrs. Lizzie Beverly, 258 Merrimao Bt., Lowell, Mass., writes: “ It affords me great pleasure to tell all suffering women of the benefit I have received from taking Lydia E. Pink ham’s V ege table Compound. lean hard ly find words to express my gratitude for what she has done for me. My trouble was ulceration of the womb. I was un der the doctor's care. Upon examina tion he found fifteen very large ulcers, but he failed to do me good. I took sev eral bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege table Compound, also used the Sanative Wash, and am cured. Mrs. Pinkham’s medicine saved my life, and I would recommend it to all suffering women.” Mrs. Amos Tromblkay, Ellenburgh Ctr., N. Y.. writes: “ I took cold at the time my baby was born, causing me to have milk legs, and was sick in bed for eight weeks. Doctors did me no good. I surely thought I would die. I was al so troubled with falling of the womb. I could not eat, had faint spells as often as ten times a day. One day a lady came to see me and told me of the benefit she had derived from taking Lydia E. Pinkham’s medicine, and ad vised me to try it. I did so, and had taken only half a bottle before I was able to sit in a chair. After taking three bottles I could do my own work. I am now in perfect health.” What One Woman’* Vanity Coat Her. A curious story edmes from Monte Carlo, the heroine of which has, says the Paris correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, lost a large sum through ex cusable feminine vanity. She entered the ealle while a former friend and protector of hers was winning in a sweeping style that seemed destined to break the bank. ”1 am so glad to see you here, prince, and jn such lack, tool” she exclaimed. “Do tell me a lncky number. It is sure to win, for you are now in the vein. ” The prinos generously placed a pile of gold louis before the vivacious lady, whose beauty had successfully defied the effects of 36 winters, and said, “Put it all on the number of your years and reap a golden harvest. ” The lady reflected, hesitated, and then placed the pile on 27. An in stant later the croupier sang ont, “Thirty-six red wins 1” The lady mut tered: “Ah, mon Dieu! Thirty-six is exaotly my age,” and fainted on the spot Even very young women are seen with strongly marked wrinkles in the forehead which they have acquired through contracting the brows. A friend tells me that these wrinkles will disap pear nnder the following treatment: Bind the forehead at night with a compress of new linen soaked in a mix ture of equal parts of alcohol and white of egg Allow the compress to remain on all night and continue the treat ment until the wrinkles have disappear ed Lazy Liver have been troubled a great deal with a torpid liver, which produces constipa tion. I found CASCARETS to be all you claim for them, and secured such relief the first trial, that I purchased another supply and was com pletely cured. I shall only be too glad to rec ommend Cascarets whenever the opportunity Is presented.” J. A. Smith. 2920 Susquehanna Ave., Philadelphia, Pa. CANDY M 1.

I was a broken down woman. It is now seven years past that I was cured.” Mrs. Sarah Gallitz, of Luton, la.,also writes: “I was suffering with the change of life. I had spells of flowing every two or three weeks, which would leave me nearly dead. I had given up hope of being cured, when I heard of Dr. Hartman’s remedies and began to use them.
