However Busy a woman is she always finds time to read the daily papers. And she may read the Bargains first and the Weather Report last, but she always reads the testimonial letters advertising Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. She wants to know what experience other women have had with this great medicine.
“When my daughter was thirteen” “When my daughter was thirteen and until she was fifteen she suffered every month so that she could hardly move around the house and when she would have the pains in school she would have to be carried home. She also had headache, dizzy and faint spells, and soreness in her back. I saw your advertisement in the ‘Hamilton Spectator’ and got Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for her. She does not have the least bit of trouble now, and we both recommend your medicine. She works in a candy-shop now and seems well and strong. I give you permission to publish this letter as a testimonial.” Mrs. I.P. Clause, 83 Oxford St., Hamilton, Ontario.

“Man may work from sun to sun, but woman’s work is never done.” Women continually overdo and drift along from bad to worse. Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound is a standard medicine for women’s troubles.
“We have to do our own work” “I saw in the newspapers where Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was doing so much good to women, and as I needed something I began to take it. I used to be very sick, but I am not now. I live on a farm in the homestead district and we have to do all our own work. I tell all the women I see what Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound does for me. I think it saves me from going to a doctor and is the best medicine women can take.” Mrs. William Coultas, Fork River, Manitoba.
