by her to a reporter.
"It was soon after the- birth of my
llttlo boy," she said. "Three different
doctors hnil done their best for me,
but they nil failed to do me good. My
case seemed to be a combination of
nervous and stomach troubles. I had
fainting spells, my food did not digest
and caused 1110 great distress. My

delirious. I lost In weight from 130 to
08 pounds, I had no color, my feet
and hands were cold and my limbs had
11 prickly sensation as though asleep.
I was not refreshed by sleep although
I slept heavily.

they are tho medicine that saved my
life. I do not believe that ordinary
medicine could have cured me."
Although Mrs. Tucker's was a severe
ease, Dr. Williams' Plri'k Pills cured
her. Lesser troubles yield even more
readily to the potent action of this
marvelous medicine. Not only will
these pills cure cases similar to Mrs.
Tucker's but they have been proven to
be an unfailing specific for such dis
eases as locomotor ntaxla, partial
paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica,
neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous head
ache, after-effects of grip, of fevers
and of other acute diseases, palpita
