Three-fourths of the patients lying on those snow white beds are women and girls. Why should this be the case ? Because they have neglected themselves. Every one of these patients-in the hospital berk had plenty of warning in that bearing-down feeling, pain at the left or right of the womb, nervous exhaustion pain in the small of the back. All of these things are indications of an unhealthy' condition of the ovaries or womb. What a terrifying thought I These poor souls are lying there on those hospital beds awaiting a fearful operation. Do not drag along at home or in your place of employment until you are obliged to go to the hospital and submit to an examination and possible operation. Build up the female system, cure the derangements which have signified themselves by danger signals, and remember that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has saved thousands of women from the hospital. Read the letters here published with the full consent of the writers, and see how they escaped the knife by a faithful reliance on Mrs. Pinkham's advice and the consistent treatment of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, j READ THE FOLLOWING LETTERS: u I was taken nick very surldenly July 13th with severe cramps, or pains. I summoned a doctor and -was in bed a week lying on my back all tho time. The pains left mo very sore. In a 'few weeks I was feeling better but was soon taken sick again with those pains and had another doctor. This one said I had neu ralgia pains of tho stomach and ovaries. He injected morphine anaeasea me again, but I remained soro and weak from tho pains and continued to flow for ono month and threo days without stopping for ono day. "Tho doctors wanted to sorapo the womb, saying tho lining was inflamed. I had a pain at times in my right ovary and felt weak nearly all tho time. Am only twenty years old, never was sick until this sickness in Jub. Menses never lasted more than four days and never an ache or a pain. "I began the uso of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound and soon was feoling better. I am now well and strong again. Your medicine has relieved mo of tho pain in my side and stopped my flowing which tho doctors could not do. "I feel vory grateful to you and can recommend your medicine to all suffonng women." Lucille A. Gaines, 2348 Pine St., QU OjUUIS, iUO. " I suffered with female troublo for ovor eight years, had womb troublo and painful menstruation. Ilavo been under tho caro of doctors who said I would have to Bubmit to an operation before I could bo cured. I suffered everything. "Ono day I picked up a paper and noticed your advertise ment and a testimonial from a friend I knew, stating your med icine had cured her so I thought I would try it. I told my hus band I -would givo up all doctors aud try your medicine. I be gan using your medicln'o just; two months ago and cannot say enough on its praise. Menstruation cornea freely now "without pain. "Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has brought Jieaiui, joy ana nappiness to mo. My advice to all suuering women is to try your Vegetable Compound."
