Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia EL Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
?ublished a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
I ere is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.

Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely

ready wit which he has inherited
from Queen Amelia, and he also
shares her open air tastes, spending a
good part of his leisure in tennis,
fencing and riding. He has. moreover,
artistic accomplishments, being both
a isuscian and a painter.
Before the tragic events that
brought him to the throne, he was be
ing educated as a sailor,, and threw
himself eagerly into the study of mod
ern science and mathematics and the
technicalities of naval construction.
Two years ago,, therefore, his out
look on life was rather the sailor's
than the king's, and a strenuous course
of study was mapped out for him. It
included, according to a writer in the
Xuao, philosophy, political science and
the physical sciences.
He arose at seven every morning
and studied Plato and Greek philos
ophy for an hour before he went to
breakfast in his mother's apartments.
The morning from ten to twelve
o'clock was devoted to astronomy, in
organic chemistry and general science
and the afternoon from one to four to
history and jurisprudence.
In the evenings he relaxed into
music and less , serious literature, re
tiring to bed at nine. This scheme of
study was pursued for months with
scarcely any interruption.

Letters from Prominent Physicians
addressed to Chas. H. Fletcher.
Br. B. Ealstead Scott, of Chicago, Ills-, says: "I have prescribed your
Castoria often for infants during my practice, and find it very satisfactory.
Dr. "William Belmont, of Cleveland. Ohio, says: "Tour Castoria stand
first in its class. In my thirty years of practice I can say I never have
found anything that so filled the place."
Dr. 'J. H. Taft, of Brooklyn. N. T.. says: I have used your Castoria and
found it an excellent remedy in my household and private practice for
many years. The formula is excellent.''
Dr. B. J. Hamlen, of Detroit. Mich., says: "T prescribe your Castoria
extensively, as I have never found anything to equal it for children's
troubles. I am aware that there are iTnita,ti in the field, but Z always
see that my patients get Fletcher's.
Dr. "Win. J McCrann, of Omaha. Ken., says: "As the father of thirteea
children I certainly know something about your great medicine, and aside
from my own family experience I have in my years of practice found Caa
toria a popular and cScient remedy in almost every home.''
Dr. J. R- Clausen, of Philadelphia. Pa., says: The name that year Cao
toria nss made for itself in the tens of thousands of homes blessed by Cle
presence cf children, scarcely needs to be supplemented by the endorse
ment of the medical profession, but I, for one, most heartily endorse it sad
believe it an excellent remedy.
Dr. R- 1L Ward, of Ksnsas City, ilm, says: "Physicians generally do noC
prescribe proprietary preparations, tut in the ease of Castoria my experi
ence, like that of many other physicians, has taught me to make aa ex
ception. I prescribe your Castoria in my practice because I have found tt
to Tee a thoroughly reliable remedy for children's complaints. Any physi
