enough to Work/"
Hivv often tlii'Hp Biffnificimt words art* spoken in our preat
mills, shops, and factorit'H hy the* poor jjirl who haa workt*d
herself to tho poiift where nature can endure no more and
demands a rent! Tho poor sufferer, broken in health, must
stand aside and make room for another.
The foreman says, “ If you are not well enough to work
you must leave, for wo must put someone in your place.”
Standing all day, week in and week out, or sitting in
cramped positions, the poor girl has slowly contracted some
deranged condition of her organic system, which calls a halt
in her progress and demands restoration to health before she
can lie of use to herself or any one else.
To this class of women and girls Mrs. Pink ham proffers
both sympathy and uid. When these distressing weaknesses
and derangements assail you. remember that there is a
remedy for them all. We have on record thousands of such
cases that have been absolutely and permanently cured by
Lydia K. Plnkhaiu’s Vegetable Compound, restoring
to’ vigorous health and lives of usefulness those who have
been previously sorely distressed. Here is one of them.
