cided benefits. I ceased coughing, and am now enjoying splendid health and have gained thirty-five pounds in weight. I again feel like my former self, thanks to Dr Pierce and his great medicines. I am no longer the ' walking skeleton' that I was a few months ago. I gladly and cheerfully recommend Dr. Pierce's great medicines to my friends, and especially to all suffering women." Gained Twenty=nine Pounds. « Three years ago," writes Mrs. John Graham, of 2018 Plumb St. (Frankford), Philadelphia, Pa., «I had a very bad attack of dropsy, which left me with heart trouble, and also a very weak back. At times I was so bad that I did not know what to do with myself. My children advised me to take your ' Favorite Prescription,'but I had been taking so much medicine from the doctor that I was discouraged with everything. I came to Philadelphia two years ago, and picking up one of your little books, one day, began to read what your medicine had done for others, I determined to try it myself. I took seven bottles, and to-day I am a strong, well woman, weighing one hundred and sixty-two pounds. Have gained twenty-nine pounds since I started to use your ' Favorite Prescription.' I can recommend your famous medicine to all who suffer as I did as I have unbounded faith in it." Case Regarded Hopeless. «I wish to add my testimony to hundreds of others as to the value of Dr. Pierce's medicines," writes Mrs. Ida M. De Ford, of I^atona, Hubbard Co., Minn. "Have doctored with a great many physicianssome specialists ; have twice been in a hospital for treatment. My case has been regarded as a hopeless one, and they knew not what the trouble was. Heart was bad; stomach all out of order; tired out, severe pains in all parts of the body; sinking spells and nearly every ailment a woman could have. I took many a bottle of different ' patent medicines' without effect. I began taking Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and ten months afterward I gave birth to a ten-pound boy. All physicians had stated as a fact that I never could bear a child. Both the baby and myself were strong, and I got along splendidlythanks to your medicine. I do my own work and feel very much encouraged. I wish all suffering women would thoroughly try your ' Favorite Prescription.' " Mrs. Graham.
