THE STORK BRINGS JOY To the household biit how about the mother? Has she been lovfiil during the weeks and months preceding the advent ? Too many mothers find it a time of fearful anxiety because of the knowledge that they are "not in good health." - Thev have allowed weaknesses, pains and drains to accumu late till the health is completely under mined and they are "more than discour aged," and all because they have been misadvised by well-meaning friends or maltreated by an inefficient doctor. To all such here is the news that there is a remedy that will heal and not hurt. It was discovered forty years ago by Dr. Pierce who searched Nature's labor atory the earth, for the remedial agents so liberally provided therein. He took Lady's Slipper root, Black Cohosh root, Unicorn root, Blue Cohosh root, Golden Seal root, and by extracting, combining and preserving, without the use of alco hol, the glyceric extracts of these natural remedies he has given to the world Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, which has to its credit the enviable and unparalleled record of more than a half million of cures In the last forty years. "Only those who have given Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription a trial can appreciate what a boon it is to suffering women," writes Miss Vinna Seamore. ot 33 Elm St., Toronto, Ont. "For two years I suffered intensely from female weakness until life was a burden tome. I had distressing; bearinjr-do'wn pains so I could scarcely stand up. Had hot flashes, was very despondent, weak, and ut terly wretched. My physician gave me treat ments but without success. 1 tried several remedies but obtained no relief until I be eran to take Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrin- tion. I beiran immediately to improve, and .in four months' time I was as well and strong as ever." Constipation cured by Doctor Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. ENTRIES ALREADY.
