I was subject to neuralgic troubles and slightly rheumatic, and I became discouraged and melancholy, feeling that I should never again be woman. a well I was in a pitiful state, when my husband, who had been benefitted by the use of Paine's celery compound, urged me to try it.

These are a few of the outward improvements. More important is the thorough and radical purifying of the blood and the regulating and building-up of tbe deep-lying nerves all over the body.
