In the vast retail establishments of large cities, many women are env ployed as saleswomen. Men formerly held the positions that ladness Comes Tf-ith a better tuiderstanding of the Itransient nature of the many phys Ills, which vanish before proper ef- -gentle efforts—pleasant efforts— -y directed. There is comfort ic knowledge, that so many forms o-r less are not due to any actual dis- fc but simply to a constipated condi- bf the system, which the pleasant ly laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt- jtooves. That is '. "hy it is the onlj aedy with millions of families, and is fywhere esteemed so highly by all value good health. Its beneficial 'cts are due to. the fact, that it is the remedy which promotes internal lanliness without debilitating the mns on which it acts. It is therefore important, in order to get its bene- ial effects, to note when you pur lase, that you have the genuine arti- J, which is manufactured by the; Cali- ^nia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by 11 reputable druggists. • . m in the enjoyment of good health, fact the system is regular, laxatives or Iher remedies are then not needed. If jfflicted with any actual disease, one nay be commended to Upmost skillful ' y sicians, but if in need of a laxative, should have the best, and with the •weU-informed everywhere, Syrup ot "Figs stands highest and is most largely nsedandgivesmostgenerftlsatisfactioii women now hold, " and while women'sor- ganism is less strong than men's they are expected to do the same work. Their duties compel them to be on their feet from morning to night, and many of them, in a short time, contract these distressing complaints called "female diseases." Then occur irregularities, suppressed or painful menstruation, weakness, indigestion, leueorrhoea, general debility and nervous prostration. They arc beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faintness, lassitude, excitability, Irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy, "all-gone" and "want-to-be-left-alone" feelings, blues and hopelessness. In such cases there is one tried and true remedy. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles. The following is a sample: "My dear Mrs. Pinkham:—After writing you, and before your answer came, I was too miserable to go to the store, and so lost my position. That was five weeks ago. I am now back again in my old place, and never felt so well in all my life. The bearing-down pains, and whites have left me, and I am not a bit nervous or blue. Life looks brighter to me. I don't get tired, my temper is real sweet, and I could scream right out sometimes for joy. Your Vegetable Compound is my standby. You don't know how thankful I am to you for saving me from suffering. Every woman in my position should know of your derful remedy. I never saw you, but I love you for being so good to me."— EDITH W 6th Ave., Brooklyn, N. Y- Marie Antoinette! Oa the crowded street to-day, t am certain that f met Dainty Marie An* tolnette.
