Capt. Archibald Mcintosh was born

at work on the.flames, using both the
chemical apparatus and .the big .fire

same spot of ground. In one case, you
get an onion, with its peculiarly strong
odor, and in the other you get a Sower of

and get opium (a dangerous, li a bit-forming

get something that helps constipation.

Everything growing out of the ground
seems intended for some use in establishing
natural conditions. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y., long since found out what is
naturally best for women's diseases. He
learned it all through treating thousands
of c:iscs. The result of his studies was a
medicine called Dr. Pierce's Favorit
IYescription. This medicine is made of
vegetable growths that nature surely in intended
tended intended for backache, headache, weakening
drains, bear:nc-Jown pains, periodical ir irregularities,
regularities, irregularities, pelvic inflammations, and for
the many disorders common to women in
all ages of life. Dr. Pierce's Favorite

blaek .cohosh root, unicorn root, blue
cohosh root and Oregon grape root.
Women who take this standard remedy
know that in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre Prescription

tome so good that druggists everywhere
sell it.
Favorite Prescription should have the
full confidence of every woman in America
because it contains no alcohol and no
