Women Are Constantly Being Restored to
Health by Lydia E. Pinkham's
"Worth mountains of gold," says one woman. Another
says, MI would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound for all the other medicines for women in the
world." Still another writes, " I should like to have the .
merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown
on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could
read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills."
We could fill a nowspaper ton times the size of this with such quo
tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women
whose health has been restored and suffering banished by Lydia EL
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Why has Lydia E. Finkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished
such a universal success ? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on
doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for more)
than SO years ?
Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. The reason no
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim
ply because there is no other medicine so good for women's ills.
Iloro aro two letters that just came to tho writer's desk only two
of thousands, but both tell a comforting-story to every suffering wo
man who will read thorn and bo guided by them.

bloating left me and I was not so
