LIKE A CHARM
After Operation Failed to Help,
Cardui Worked Like a Charm.
Jonosvllle, B. C "I suffered wPtb
womanly trouble," writes Mm. J. 8.
Kendrlck, In a letter from this placa,
"and at time, I could not bear to stand
on my feet. The doctor said I would
never be any better, and that 1 would
have to have an operation, or I would
have a cancer.
I went to the hospital, and they oper
ated nn me, but I got no better. Thev
an Id medicines would do me no good,
and I thought I would have to die.
At l i I tried Cnrdul, and began to
Improve, bo I rontlntied using it. Now,
I am well, and ran do my own work.
I don't feel any pnlns.
Cardui worked like a ehnrm."
There must be merit In thla purely
Tegetablp, tonic remedy, for women
Cardui for It has bien in successful
use for more than 50 years, for the
treatment of womanly weakness and
I'll ane try It, for your troubles.
