I Will Cure You of
No pay until you know it.
After 2,000 experiments, I have
learned how to cure Rheumatism. Not
to turn bony joints into flesh again;
that is Impossible. But I can cure the
disease always, at any state, and for
ever. . I ask for no money. Simply write
me a postal and I will send you an
order on your nearest druggist for six
bottles of Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Cure,
for every druggist keeps it. Use it for
a month, and if it does what I claim
pay your druggist $5.50 for it. If it
doesn't I will pay him myself.
I have no samples. Any medicine
that can affect Rheumatism with but
a few doses must be drugged to the
verge of danger. I use no such drugs.
It is folly to take them. You must get
the disease out of the blood.
My remedy does that, even in the
most difficult, obstinate cases. No
matter how impossible this seems to
you, I know It and I take the risk. I
have cured tens of thousands of cases
In this way, and my records show that
39 out of 40 who get those six bottles
pay, and pay gladly. I have learned
that people In general are honest with
a physician who cures them. That is
all I ask, If I fall I don't expect a
penny from you.
Simply write me a postal card or
letter. Let me send you an order for
the medicine. Take it for a month;
for it won't harm you anyway. If it
cures, pay $5.50. I leave that entirely
to you. I will mail you a book that
tells how I do it, Address Dr. Shoop,
Box 515, Racine, Wis.

THE STORY OF THE LATE
It is admitted that her name was not
Brown. For obvious reasons ifc is not
wise to mention names in such a case.
For tho facts of thi life story are so
common that any woman could relate
them to some of her married friends,
and probably might do so, if the name
happened to fit. Therefore a real story
is printed under a wrong name.
When Mrs. Brown married she was
what every ono called a remarkably fine
girl. She was tho very picture of health.
She knew nothing about1 headaches or
nerves, but enjoyed life thoroughly
working or playing. Everybody called
Brown a lucky man, and Brown thought
so himself. After the first baby came,
Mrs. Brown began to feel tired sometimes
at the end of the day. Then there came
another little guest, and the mother used
to feel tired before the end of the day
came. She knew now that she had
nerves, and also had learned the mean
ing of headache. About this time peo
ple used to speak of Mrs. Brown'p falling
off in looks. Her figure lost its graceful
lines, her cheeks their rosy plumpness.
Mr. Brown wasn't losing anything by
the way. He was putting on flesh, and
showed in every way the comfortable
easo of a man who has a good home and
a good wife to manage it. Mr. Brown
believed in large families. Every visit
of the stork was to him a cause of happi
ness. No man could have been more
proud of his family. He didn't realize
either his own selfishness or his wife's
sacrifices. If he had seen a true picture
of his family life it would have shown
him in a cart surrounded by a happy
family and his wifo in tho shafts wearily,
uuu nuiiui, umwiug mo neavy load.
They got just ono too many on tho load
at last, and after that the neighbors
spoke of the late Mrs. Brown.
It is not only the women who turn
night into day and sacrifice health to
pleasure who live fast. The wife and
mother who in household duties and
maternal cares exhausts vitality more
rapidly than it can be supplied, is also
living fast, and fast living does not mean
long living, In a normal condition of"
health a woman is equal to all proper
womanly obligations. She can guide
the house and rear a family, and as
a grandmother still show the signs
of womanly beauty and strength. But
so few women are normally healthy.
Their vitality is of ten lessened by un-
"""J. ", uy uiauuse 01 tne delicate

motherildAe0tS f S strength from .its
mother should bo relieved Kowry
possible burden and anxioty, instead of
which she carries the household burden
to tho last. Is it any wonder that under
these circumstances her strength fails
and she breaks down under a load which
physical weakness can no longer restrain?
Tile conditions of our life are such
thatwomen do not have, as a rule, fit
opportunity for rest and recreation.
The necessity, therefore, is apparent for
some strength-preserving and strength
creating medicine to euro tho diseases
that woakon women and to strengthen
them for the obligations of maternity.
That medicine exists and has been tho
means of restoring thousands of weak
and sick women to lasting health.
'I had poor health for nine years
(ever since the birth of my child),"
writes Mrs. Armintie Watkins, of Acme,
Kanawha Co., W. Va. "Had fbmale
weakness; was very irregular and would
suffer untold misery. When I wrote I
had no idea that I would ever got well,
but when your letter reached me I began
to have hope. I commenced taking Dr.

prove in strength. I was
soon able to do tho work
for my family of six. I
have recommended Dr.
Pierce's medicines to a
number of my friends,
and they think there nev
er were such medicines
in tho world. I think so
myself. I took eight
bottles, three of 'Favor

m "When I wrote to you in March, ask
ing advice as to what to do for myself,"
says Mrs. Ella Reynolds, of Gufflo, Mc
Lean Co., Ky.T "I was expecting to bo
come a mother in Juno, and was sick all
tho time. Had been sick for several
months. Could not got anything to
stay in my stomach, not even water.
Had mishaps twice in six months,
threatening all tho timo with this
one. Had female weakness for several
years. My hips, back and lower bowels
hurt me all the time. Had numbness
from my hips down. Had several hard
cramping spells, and was not able to do
any work at all. I received your answer
ma few days telling me to tako Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. I took
three bottles, and before I had taken it
a week I was better, and before I had
taken it a month I was able to'help to-do
my work. On the 27th of May my baby
wa3 born, and I was only sick throe
hours, and had an easy time. Tho doc
tor said I got along nicely. Wo praise
Dr. Pierce's medicine, for it has cured

for thirteon years,"

probability of a perfect cure for wom
anly diseases by the use of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It establishes
regularity, dries weakening drains, heals

women it bf the best of tonics and
nervines, restoring health and strength.
