WHY PHYSICIANS FAIL
To Cure Many Oases of Female Ills.
Some Sensible Reasons Why Mrs
Pinkham is More Successful Than
Many Family Doctors.
A woman la sick some dlscnso peculiar to her sex Is fast develop
in in her system. Slio goes to -nor family physician nnd tolls him a
Btory, but not tho whole story.
She holds back something, loses her head, becomes ngitated, forgets
what she wauts to say, and finally conceals what bIio ought to have told,
nnd this completely mystifies the doctor.
Isit a wonder, therefore, that tho doctor falls to cure tho disease?
Still we cannot blame tho woman, for it is very embarrassing to detail
some of tho symptoms of her Buffering, even to her family physician.
Tills Is tho roii.son why hundreds of thousands of women nro now
In correspondence with Mrs. Finkluim, nt Lynn, Mnss. To her they
can give every symptom, so that when she is ready to advise them she
is in possession of more facts from her correspondence with the patient
than the physician can possibly obtain through a personal interview.
Following we publish a letter from n woman showing the result of
' a correspondence with Jlrs. Pinkham. All such letters are considered
absolutely confidential by Mrs. Pinkham, nnd are never published
in any way or manner without the consent in writing of the patient;
but hundreds of women are so graceful for the health which Mrs. Pink
ham and her medicine have been able to restore to them that they nob
only consent to publishing their letters, bub write asking that this be
done In order thtit other women who suffer may be benefited by their
Here is Proof of the Value of Mm. Pinkham'S Advice. '
"Dear Mbs. Pinkham: I have been taking your medicine for two
months and write to you for some advico concerning, H. I am in very poor
health and have been for nearly three- years. I am troubled with a pain and
soreness in tho back of my head and ncclc which develops into an almost un
bearable headache at time of menstruation. Since last August I have been
confined to my bed a great part of the time. In January I was taken very
sick with one of my awful headaches, and lay for five weeks in a critical
condition. Our doctors were unable to tell mo 'the cause of my illness. I had
a slow fever seemingly in my nerves with a marked bilious affection. I was
completely prostrated. My physician did nothing for me but to put me to
sleep, said it was tho condition of my nerves at the time of menstruation. I
was advised to tako Ijydia B. Pinkham'S Vegetable Compound, and
would like your advice and to know tho cause of my bad feelings."MB3,
Frances I. McCbea, Sheridan, Mont. (April 27, 1000.)
" Dkar Mr.s. Pinkiiam : I wish, to testify that I have been greatly bene
fited by the use of your medicine. After taking four bottles I felt better, m
head and neck were greatly relieved. After reading the testimonies in tWrt
book you sent me, I believed that I had a tumor, and a, while after when

A WOODLAND INCIDENT.
How n Bird Cleverly Attempted to
Protect Its Young.
Tho song of tho hermit thrush Is a
wild, elusive, bewitching son, Few peo
ple know tho voice, and fewer still hava
over been tho little brown hermit ot tha
woods. A writer in Country Life In
Ameilc.i tells a pretty story of tho bird.
Ho says: "Without warning, tho sphg ot
tho heimlt hurst forth closo to my car,
and not four feet away, on a low bush,
sat my longed-for hermit thrush. I la
was awaro of my presence, for his yellow-ringed,
(.oft, brown eyes wcro fixed
Intently on mo. Yet, with bond thrown
back and wings slightly drooped, ho sanj?
fiercely on, tho quivering, arrow-spotted
throat pouring forth tippling melody.
Cautiously 1 hat up, and tho blngor
hopped to another twig with iippnroiit
agitation, but continued his song. A low
rustlo of a dry leaf behind mo caught
my enr, and tho secret was out. Crouched
closo to tho ground, wings outspread, ran
the little miilo with a young bird almost
leady to fly concealed under Its wins;,
Tho whole nffalr was plain, I had
chanced near tho nest, built on tho
ground among tho plno-nccdlcs, moss and
grasses, Tho fathor had undertaken a
attract my attention whtlo tho motlwr
spirited away tho offspring. Tho plucisy
plan would have been carried through
without my knowledge."
