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
Even very young women are seen

forehead which they have acquired
through contracting the brows. A friend
