The Troubles Women Have
BY L. MAC LEAN, H. D.

better qualified to successfully treat the
rifowww peculiar to women than Dr.
Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y. The cases that
come to him run into many thousands,
giving him an experience tSat rarely
comes to any one man. Dr. Pierce found
that in nearly every case there were certain
vegetable growths which rarely failed to
give prompt relief in those feminine dis disorders
orders disorders from which so many women suffer.
He combined these roots and herbs into a
temperance medicine that he called Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription, for that is
precisely what it was. This medicine is
sold in both liquid and tablet form by drug druggists
gists druggists everywhere. Favorite Prescription
is a distinct remedy for women ana acts
directly upon the organs that characterize
the sex. It is not necessary to take a long
course of treatment with this standard
medicine. A weakly, sickly, backachy,
headachy, nervous, despondent woman,
with regular or irregular pains with femi feminine
nine feminine disorders that come in youth or
middle age is pretty sure to find in Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription the exact
remedy that her condition calls for, and
to find it after a very few doses are taken.
Why women should allow themselves to
stay sick when a very little money spent
for this remedy will probably xn&Jce them
well, is something no one can explain.
All women who suffer, from feminine dis disorders

the Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, N.Y., for free

The word loyalty has been worked
overtime for the past two years, but
there is still a lot of use that it can
be put to. Are you loyal to your home

your money to a foreign mail order
house for your supplies? Your home
merchant is supporting your schools
and other local institutions. How much
is the mail order man contributing to
these causes? Think it over and see
whether you are loyal to yourself and
