RECORD OF A
Doctors Could Not Help Mrs.
Health through Lydia E.
Hooper, Nebraska. "I am very glad
to tell how Lydia E.Pinkhams Vegetable
Compound has helped me. For five years
I suffered from female troubles so I was
scarcely able to do my work. 1 took doc
tors' medicines and used local treatments
but was not helped. I hod such awful
bearing down pains and my back was bo
weak I could hardly walk and could not
ride. I often had to sit up nights to sleep
and my friends thought I could not live
long. At my request my husband got
me a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Veg
etable Compound and I commenced to
take it By the time I had taken the
seventh bottle my health had returned
and I began doing my washing and was a
well woman. Atonetimeforthrceweeks
I did all tho work for eighteen boarders
with no signs of my old trouble return
ing. Many have taken your medicine
after seeing what it did for me. I would
not take $1000 and be where I was. You
have my permission to use my name if
it will aid anyone." Mrs. Susie Tem
pleton, Hooper, Nebraska.
ThePinkham record is a proud and peer
less one. It is a record of constant vic
tory over the obstinate ills of woman ills
that deal out despair.
It is an established '
