A little care when one is young is not much to pay for good health afterwards.  Take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for any weakness you may have.  This well-known medicine is recommended by mothers to their daughters, by sisters to one another, and by friends and neighbors to the woman whose loved ones are far from her when she needs them most.

Am perfectly satisfied” “When my husband was called back to England in 1914, I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound to strengthen me so that I could work.  My periods were twice a month and used to make me so weak, but I am able to do my work now and am perfectly satisfied with your medicine.  I still get it at the chemist’s, and strongly recommend it to any one I hear of suffering as I did.”  Mrs. E. Hornblower, 899 Yonge St., Toronto, Ontario.

One of your little books” “I took Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for weakness and because I felt run down.  I tried a lot of medicine before I tried yours.  One day I was standing on my stoop when a boy came up to me and handed me one of your little books.  I read the book, and the next day my husband went to a chemist and bought me a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.  I have taken the medicine ever since and I feel quite strong and well now as I am on the sixth bottle.  I have written to my sister and told her all about the wonders it has done for me, and I am quite willing for you to use my name, as I cannot thank you enough for what it has done for me.”  Mrs. W.F.  Rush, 128 6th Avenue, Mayfair, Fordesburg, Johannesburg, South Africa.
