“I had to stay in bed” “I suffered for three years with troubles women often have.  About every three weeks I had to stay in bed four or five days.  I nearly went crazy with pains in my back, and for about a week at a time I could not do my work.  I saw Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound advertised in the ‘Hamilton Spectator’ and I took it.  Now I have no pain and am quite regular unless I overwork or stay on my feet from early morning until late at night.  I keep house and do all my own work without any trouble.  I have recommended the Vegetable Compound to several friends.”  Mrs. Emily Beecroft, 16 Douglas St., Hamilton, Ontario.


A spoonful of vinegar added to the water when cooking corned beef will make it more tender.

To make pie-crust flaky try adding one-half a spoonful of vinegar to the cold water before mixing.

Add vinegar to the water in which you soak wilted vegetables and they will revive quickly and any little bugs in them will come out.

Add vinegar to the water when washing windows or paint or cleaning floors.

If paint or varnish is on a window, wet it with hot vinegar and rub it off with a cent.

To take the shine from clothing, sponge the shiny places with boiling hot vinegar, rubbing vigorously, then press as usual.

It is perfectly Safe for any one to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound whenever such a medicine is needed.  It contains no narcotics nor harmful drugs and is made in the most accurate and sanitary manner.  Can a medicine be a fraud that is compounded from nature’s own remedies, the roots and herbs of the fields, that has stood the test of time by restoring health and happiness to thousands of suffering women?

For women’s troubles” “I saw Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound advertised for women’s troubles, and when a friend recommended it to me I tried it, and it has done me so much good in the two years in which I have been taking it that I find I am a different woman since then.  I recommend your Vegetable Compound as much as I can and you may use my letter as a testimonial.”  Mrs. Wm. J. Thomas, Melaval, Saskatchewan.
