A prominent club woman , Mrs. Dan-
forth , of St. Joseph , Mich. , tells how she
was cured of falling of the womb and
' its accompanying pains and misery by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound *
"DEAR MRS. PJNKUAH : Life looks dark indeed when a woman
feels that her strength is fading1 away and she has no hopes of ever
being restored. Such was my feeling a few months ago when I was
advised that my poor health was caused by prolapsus or falling of the
womb. The words sounded like a knell to me , I felt that my sun had
set ; but ydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compoimd came to me as
an elixir of life ; it restored the lost forces and built me up until my
good health returned to me. For four months I took the medicine
daily and each dose added health and rtrenjrth. I am so thankful for
the help I obtained through its use. " MRS. FLORENCE DANFORTH ,
1007 Miles Ave. , St. Joseph , Mich.
A medicine that has restored so many women to health and
can produce proof of the fact must be regarded with respect. This
is the record of ILydia JE. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound , which
cannot be equalled by any other medicine the world has ever pro
duced. Here is another case :
"DEAR MRS. PIXKITAM : For years I was
troubled with falling of the womb , irregular
and painful menstruation , leucorrhcea , bearing-
down pains , backache , headache , dizzy and
faulting spells , and stomach trouble.
" I doctored for about five years but did
not seem to improve. I began the use of your
medicine , and have taken seven bottles of
iLydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound ,
three of Blood Purifier , and also used the
Sanative Wash and Liver Pills , and am now
enjoying good health , and have gained in flesh.
I thank you very much for what you
have done for me , and heartily recom
mend 3rour medicine to all suffering
women. " Miss EMMA SNYDER , 218 East
r Center St. , Marion , Ohio.
"FUEE MEDIC Ai ADVICE TO TVOMJ3N. "
"Women would save time and much sickness if they would
\rrite to Mrs. Pinkham for advice as soon as any distressing symp
toms appear. It is free , and has put thousands of women on the
right road to recovery.
Mrs. Pinkham never violates the confidence thus entrusted to
her , and although she publishes thousands of testimonials from
women who have been benefited by her advice and medicine ,
never in all her experience lias she published such a letter without
the full consent , and often by special request of the writer.
FORFEIT if we cannot forthwith produce the original letters and signatures of
above testimonials , which will jmno their ab oluto genuineness.

A Struggle for Life.
Eagle River , Mo. , Jan. 19. Maggie
E Decker , a hard-working womanin
years of age , whose home is here , has
just gone through a thrilling battle
for her life. Many another would
have lain down and died , for for
twelve long years she has suffered the
most awful pains.
She had Kidney Trouble and Itheu-
matism combined with a very distress
ing stomach trouble. At last she got
so bad that she could not sleep , for she
ached all over and was so lame that
she could scarcely walk. She spent
over a hundred dollars in different
medicines , but only to be disappointed ,
for everything failed to help her.
At last , however , just when she was
beginning to despair of ever finding
a remedy , she heard of Dodd's Kidney
Pills and bought six boxes. She says :
"Now I can eat well , sleep well , and
am feeling splendid. God bless Dodd's
Kidney Pills , for they saved my life.
My troubles were many , but Dodd's
Kidney Pills cured me completely. But
for them I surely would have died. "
