Miss Agnes Turner, Chicago, 111.,
has to say: "Overwork, irregular
meals and carelessness regarding
the ordinary rules of health, grad
ually undermined it until last fall I
became a wreck of my former self.
I suffered from continual headache,
was unable to digest my food, which
eemed to lay as a dead weight on
my stomach. I was very constipated
and my complexion became dark,
yellow and muddy as I felt. Sleep
lessness was added to my misery, and
I would awake as tired when I went
to sleep. I heard of Chamberlain's

taking them that I kept up the treat
ment 'for nearly two months. They

my system, and since that time I
can eat and sleep in comfort. I am
today entirely well."
