almost everything I ever heard of , but
without any benefit. Was troubled
with backache , headache , pains in thu

"Uow thankful I am that I took
your snc'diclno. I was troubled for
two years with inflammation of the
womb and ovaries , womb wnb also very
low. I was in constant inibcry. I had
heart trouble , was short of breath and
could not walk five blocks to save my
life. Suffered very much with my
back , had headache all the time , was
nervous , menstruations were irregular
and painful , had a bad discharge and
was troubled with bloating. I was a
perfect wreck. Had doctored nnd
taken local treatments , butfctlllwasno
better. I was advised by one of my
neighbors to write to you. I have now
finished the second bottle of Mrs. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound , nnd nm
better in every way. I am able to do '
all my own work andean walk nearly
a mile without fatigue ; something I
had not been able to do for over two
years. Ycur medicine has done me
more good than all the doctors. " ' *
