T<» it possible there is a woman in this country who con
tinues to suffer without giving Ly^ia E. Pinkham’s Vege
table Compound a trial after all the evidence that is con
tinually being published, which proves beyond contradic
tion that this grand old medicine has relieved more suffer
ing among women than any other one medicine in the world ?
W e have published in the newspapers of the United States
more genuine testimonial letters than have ever been pub
lished in the interest of any other medicine for women—
and every year we publish many new testimonials, all gen

done I wish to state what Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
has done for me. I did some heavy lifting and the doctor said it
caused a displacement.
I have always been weak and I overworked
after my baby was Ixim and inflammation set in, then nervous pros
tration, from which I did not recover until I had taken Lydia E. Pink-
ham’s Vegetable Compound. 'The Compound is my best friend and

that ! took it.”— Mrs. M a k ia I b w in , K.F.D. 1, Peru, N .Y .
From Mrs. Jane D. Duncan, W . Quincy, Mass.
S outh Q uinct , M a s s . — *• The doctor said that I had organic trouble
and he doctored me for a long time and I did not get any relief. I
saw Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound ad
