Carelessness of Nervousoess

" hoed bvlio scream, of her frightened m. 1-mates
Then the machinery was stopped and the ternfied and
injured woman wa released. "It was carelessness satd
the foreman to a reporter, "pure carclesst.ess. Lut the
doctor said it was not carelessness but nervousness. It
was a caso of a woman working when sho was not ht to
work, her nerves quivering to ihe shock and jar of the
machinery, her train dazed by the struggle with gtiffenng.
Jl.-n so seldom suffer with nervousness that they Have
small sympathy for a nervous woman. They look upon
nervous marks as just o woman's notion, nnd often as only
an excuse for ill-humor. .
The very fact that nervousness afflicts women, chiefly,
points to its cauro as being related to the female organism.
And the f:icts prove that disease of the delicate womanly
organism id the most fruitful cause of the nervousness
from which so many women EttlTer. Uterine and ovarian
diseases, unhealthy drains, inflammation, ulceration and
female weakness ; such womanly diseases in one form or
another are in general responsible for the nervousness of
The only way to cure this nervousness is to euro the
diseases that cause it. There are powders and potions,
so-called "nervines," which are offered as a remedy for
nervousness. They may relieve, but they cannct cure.
Even the relief they give is dangerouo, because it i ; pro
duced by stimulants or nerve-numbing narcotics. Sonio
men tire said to "drown their troubles in liquor." Tlio
liquor does not lighten their load of trottblo by ona iota.
It simply stupefies them until the dull brain is rendered
for a time insensible to cares and worries. The uso of
stimulants or narcotics by nervous women has the samo
result as the uso of alcohol by men. It only dulls and
deadens tho nerves for a time.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription cures nervousness by
curing tho womanly diseases which cause it. It is a truo
tonic and nervine, because it nourishes the nerves and
strengthens the body. There is no alcohol in "I'avorito
Prescription," and it is entir.ly frco from opium, cocaine
and all other narcotics. Weak, nervous, overworked, run
down women will find lu v health and strength from tho uso
of Dr. Pierce's I'avorito Prescription.
" It affords etc (-reat pleasure to be able to say a few v.ord3 in regard
to the merits of Dr. Tierce's favorite Prescription aud his 'Golden
Heilic.il Discovery,"' writc3 Jlrs. flora Ant, of Dallas, Jackson Co.,
Mo. " I was tempted to try thes-j medicines after seeing the effect upon
my mother. At ai early Cj;c of married life I was greatly bothered,
with kiinfi;l periods, also a trouMesonM drain which rendered me very
weak and uiu.t for work of cue hind. I became so tliitl there was noth
ing left of t:i..- but skia ond bone. 3Iy husband became tilarmed and
lKidk- of ' Tavcrite Inscription.' After he saw the wonderful e(7eci nf
ha (jot me two more, aad alter 1 he 1 used those up there was no more pain, and I began
to k on in fcsli very rapidly. Whin I was out driving with mv mother the horse took
frL'lit aud rati away. Mv mother iot badlv hurt. Ttcm.. 1 t:t.,,ic o.l el.
died. After her death wr.s so venous I someiimrs thourht I could not live from one day until tht
next, would get so faint I thought I would die. I had awful pains in my back and head; was diaty
all the time; could not sleep ut nyht, and the least noise would almost scare me to death. Our
doctor tried to cure me but failed. So one day I sat down nnd wrote to Dr. Tierce, stating my case
as clearly aa I could. I received a prompt reply from him, and I bought three bottles of 'favorite
Prescription, three of 'Golden Medical Discovery,' and one bottle of Dr. Pierce's Fleasant Pellets.
You may be sure after I took that I began to feel like a new person. I began to eat once more, and
now, I cannot tay positively but I believe, I weigh twice as much as I did then, and can do all of my
work. I think I owe all praise to Dr. Tierce and his wouderlul curative medicines."
What Dr. Tierce's Favorite Proscription did for Mrs. Am, it has dono for thousands
of other women. From weak women, reduced in flesh until they wcro only "skin and
bone it has changed them to strong women, whoso gain in healthy flesh speaks for the
soundness of their euro and their restoration to perfect health. Sometimes a cynical per
son will say a woman s ailments aro just imaginary. There's nothing imaginary about
the loss of flesh which so often accompanies nervousness and womanly diseases. Nor is
there anything imaginary about tho cures effected by "Favorite Prescription," cures that
can bo figured up m ounces and pounds.
