Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
is not nor ever was a "patent medicine,"
but it is the carefully wrought out and
thoroughly tested real prescription, of a
reril phyicin,n in a real practice.
Dr. Pierce's unparalleled success with
this remedy was such that more wanted
to use it than anyone doctor could attend
to in a private practice. This induced
him to manufacture it on a sufficiently
liberal scale to meet the demand.
By his own special processes, he ex
tracts, combines and preserves the medi
cinal qualities of the several Ingredients
without the use of alcohol (using chem
ically pure glycerine instead), thus ren
dering it absolutely safe for any woman
of any age and in any condition to use
freely. The names of the ingredients are:
Lady's Slipper root, Black Cohosh root,'
Unicorn root. Blue Cohosh root and
Golden Seal root.

the ' Favorite Prescription ' for eitmt weeks,
and then stopped, for I was perfectly well.
Ever since then your medicine lias boon my
'Favorite Prescription,' too. I recommend
it to every one."
