A Man to the Rescue!
The Woman In Peril Rarely Finds
Help From Her Own Sox.
it is in no ttisc to a woman's discredit
that the is not a professional life-saver.
We can only fancy her in the fireman's
helmet, in the crew of the life-boat, or
wielding a policeman's club, nt the loss
of some of that fineness which is the
distinguishing quality of her sex. The
Molly Pitchers and Grace Darlings are
only examples of the sublime sclf-for-gcttulncss
of women in great emer
gencies. It's much the same in other ways.
Women turn to the strength, skill and
judgment of men in the crises of life.
One of the most common statements
uade in the letters grateful women
rite to Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. V.,
s this: "I owe my life to Dr. Pierce."
I'hese women have found themselves in
;ieat danger. They have appealed
vittiout avail to local physicians. They
lave counseled in vain with women
idvisers. The best that had been done
or them was just to keep them afloat in
he sea of disease with strength visibly
failing, in the hope that the man who

Hundreds, of Ihousinds of women
have appeated to Dr. Pierce, for relief
from womanly ills and not one has ap
pealed in vain. 'Ihe use of Dr. Pierce's
I'.ivorite Prescription supplemented by
the medical advice of Dr. Tierce has
been the means of cure to this vast army
of women suffering from diseases pecul

"I wish to tell you the benefit I re
ceived from using vour remedies,"
writes Mrs. Alice Soucraut, of 261 V.
Harrison Street, Chicago, Ills. "Two
years ago I was taken with a severe pain
in the left ovarv and bide. Tried several
different remedies, but nothing helped
me. I got so bad I could scarcely vvalk
across the floor -or do work of any kind.
Oue day an old neighbor lady came in
to see me, and told me to try Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription. She
said she knew it would help me, as it
had saved her life. When the doctors
had given her up and said they could
do nothing for her ahe said she legan to
take Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
aud it cured her. So I got a bottle of
the ' Favoritei Prescription ' and one of
'Golden Medical Discovery,' and began
taking them. Before I had taken one
bottle of each I was so much better I
could do all my own work, and that is a
good deal, as I am the mother of four
small children. Three bottles of the
1 Favorite Prescription ' and one of
Golden Medical Discovery' cured me.
I have not been sick since then. I think

your Favorite Prescription is woi-,
derful medicine for women."
Such cures an that of Mrs. Soncrant
are many, and they speak for the power"
of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
better than the most eloquent wonls of
praise. The test of a medicine is, what
has it done for women ? By that test
"Favorite Prescription " invites wom
an's verdict. On tho testimony of
trustworthy women, "Favorite Pre
scription" has saved life where physi
cians had given up nil hope. It has
cured the most stubborn and obstinate,,
forms of womanly disease. It has baa-p
ished pain, restored the appeUte, la
duced refreshing sleep, given color trx
the cheeks and roundness to the form..
WOMRN WHO CANNOT BS CUUC&.
There are few women for whom no
perfect cure is possible. The number ot
such women has been reduced to a mini
mum by the practical ex
perience 01 ur. Pierce. Of
the hundreds of thousand
of women who have ap
pealed to Dr. Pierce fir
counsel in connection with
his "Favorite Prescrip-i
tion," only two in ever
hundred have failed of al
perfect and permanent
cure. But even this two
per cent of incurable
have gratefully recorded a
great improvement in their,
condition; relief from pain
and a restoration to family
No sick woman sBemld(
be discounted bvher coa-
t- dition, no matter how lone
standing ner ailment may
be, or how utterly all other
means and medicines have
failed to cure. The great
er number of cores effect
cd by "Favorite Prescrip
tion" are cures of chronic
and complicated diseases)
which have baffled the
skill of local physicians!
and proved intractable ta
all other treatment.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescriptiori
makes weak women strong and siclc
women well. It establishes regularity,
dries disagreeable and weakening drains,
heals inflammation and ulceration, and
cures female weakness. It is the great
est preparative for maternity, giving
womanly health and strength and mak
ing baby's advent practically painless.

Sick women are invited to consult

There is no similar offer of free con

which has behind it an institution snch
as the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical In

thirty years Dr. Pierce has been chief

"Favorite Prescription" contains na
alcohol, neither opium, cocaine, nor any
other narcotic. It is purely a vegetable)
preparation and cannot disagree with
the weakest constitution.
Some dealers for the sake of the littla
more profit paid by inferior prepara
tions, will try and sell the customer a
substitute for "Favorite Prescription"
as being "just as good." "Just as
good " medicines do not have the cures
to their credit which make women hail
"Favorite Prescription" as a "Godsend
to women." Don't barter the substance,
for the shadow.
