An Erie Pastor's Wife Tells How
She Overcame a Trouble
. During Her Girlhood.
What angnmia is, how to recognize it
and the value of the tonic treatment
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills should
be known by the mother of every grow
Amentia, is simply lack of blood.
It is one of the most common and
dangerous diseases with which growing
It is common because the blood so
often becomes impoverished during de
velopment, when girls are too frequent
ly allowed to over-study, overwork and
suffer from lack of exercise. It is dan
gerous because of the stealthiness of its
approach, often being well developed
before its presence 1b recognized, and
because of its tendency to grow so stead
ily worse, if not promptly checked, that
it may run into consumption.
Mrs. E. Wolfe DeWitt, of Reed and
Twenty-third streets, Erie, Pa., the wife
of the pastor of tlte Second Baptist
church, suffered with aumia for two
or three years before she heard of Dr.
"Williams' Pink Pills, and waa cured by
their use. . She says:
"When a girl and at the period when
I was growing fast I was in an ansemio
condition and suffered terribly. I was
weak, without ambition and the least
exertion tired me. I had suffocating
spells, severe headaches at the base of
the skull and over one eye. I was al
most bloodless, and my ears were so
transparent you could almost see through
them. I had no appetite and finally
became so weak I had to leave school.
- "I would be faint at times, and the
suffocating spells, the doctor said, were
due to a nervous affection of the heart.
"I began taking Dr. Williams Pink
Pills and only took a few boxes before I
was restored to perfect health. I can
heartily recommend the pills to ail
young girls suffering from ansemia."
