the joungor one, the spoiled, petted,

neaily twelve veins of age, and while
she tilled all with whom .she came
In contact, the sceptic .she swajed was
m weighted with love that no one ac
iti"ed her of being nthlti.ity. The one

There is a medicine for woman designed to help her in these critical periods. Dr. Pierce's Favori
Prescription has helped and
It is not a cure-all. It is prcpated specially for woman's peculiar ailments and acts with wonderful
healing power upon the deHcate female organs. It regulates the periods, heals inflammation and ulceration,
cures female weakness, and invigorates the entire womanly organism. It makes the baby's advent practically
painless, and gives abundant vitality to nursing mothers.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is a scientifically prepared medicine, and within the scope of its purpose
it is without a rival in the lasting benefits it confers upon weak and sickly women. There are many medicines
offered for women's use which seem helpful because they relieve pain and stimulate the body. But their effects

" It gives we mncfa pleasure," writes Miss Klla Sapp, of Jamestown, Guil
ford Co., N. C, "to thank Dr. Pierce for the great good received from the
tise of hii 'I'avorite Prescription' and 'Golden Medical Discovery.' I had
suffered for three years or more nt monthly periods. It seemed as though
would die with pain in my back and stomach. I could not stand at all
without fainting ; had given up all hope of ever being cured, when one of
my friends insisted upon my trying Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. With
but little faith I tried it, and before I had taken half a bottle I felt better,
had better appetite aud slept better. Now I have taken two bottles of ' Fa
vorite Prescription' and one of 'Golden Medical Discovery, ' and am happy
lo say I am entirely cured, and all ilonc in two months' time when all
medicines had failed to do any good at all."

are not permanent. When the power of their opi
ates and stimulants is exhausted the old condition
returns and usually in aggravated form. " Favorite
Prescription " contains no alcohol, and is absolutely
free from opium, cocaine, and all other narcotics.
No woman need despair of a cure of the dis
eases affecting the womanly organs if she will
give " Favorite Prescription " a fair and faithful
trial. The most obstinate cases yield to the
action of this great remedy.
Sick women are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by
letter, free of charge, and so obtain the benefit of
the advice of a specialist in diseases of women.
There is no similar offer of free medical advice
which has behind it an institution like the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, of Buffalo, N. Y. As
chief consulting physician to this institution, as
sisted by his staff of nearly a score of specialists,
Dr. Pierce has in a little more than thirty years
treated and cured over half a million women.
All correspondence is strictly private and sacredly
confidential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief
consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and

Prescription ' in November and I had a nice little baby girl in February fol
lowing. My baby weighed over eight pounds. I was only in hard labor
about one hour and got along nicely during confinement ; was up and dressed
on the eighth day. I neier had the doctor with me at all ; just the nurse and
one or two friends. My friends thought that I was sick a very short time. I
think Dr. Pierce's Favonte Prescription is indeed a true 'mother's friend,'
for it helped me wonderfully. It kept me from having a miscarriage. This
makes my second child ; with the first one I did not take ' Favorite Prescrip
tion ' and I had a niiscarnage. The little one lived just about two months
and she was sick all the time. This last baby is as plump and healthy as any
mother could wish. She is about three weeks old now and is gaining in flesh
ciery day."
Changs of Life
Mrs. M. Barnes, of Balls Ferry, Shasta Co., Cal., writes: "My physician
said I was suffenng from the effects of 'change of life.' I had heart cfisease,
womb trouble and rheumatism. My head was so dizzy I could hardly stand
up. When I began Dr. Pierce's medicines I improved right along. I took
seven or eight bottles of the 'Favorite Prescription,' a teaspoonful three
times a day, and the ' Pleasant Pellets' at night. I feel as well as I ever did.
I take great pleasure in recommending Dr. Pierce's medicines to suffenng
women. I think they are the best medicines in the world. I can't say
enough in their praise. The ' Favonte Prescription ' cured me after I had
been sick for two years so I was hardly able to be about."
