Many distressing Ailments experienced
by them are Alleviated by Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.
Here is Proof by Women who Know.
Lowell, Mass.—-“For the last three years I have
been troubled with the Change of Life and the bad
feelings common at that time. I was in a very ner-
vous condition, with headaches and pain a good
deal of the time so I was unfit to do my work. A
friend asked me to try Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegeta-
ble Compound, which I did, and it has helped me in
every way. I am not nearly so nervous, no head-
ache or pain. I must say that Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Vegetable Compound is the best remedy any sick
woman can take.”—Mrs. Margaret Quinn, Rear
259 Worthen St., Lowell, Mass.
She Tells Her Friends to Take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Remedies#
North Haven, Conn.—“ When I was 45 I had the Change of Lifa
which is a trouble all women have. At first it didn’t bother me
but after a while I got bearing down pains. I called in doctors who
told me to try different things but they did not cure my pains. One
day my husband came home and said, * Why don’t you try Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and Sanative Wash?’ Well, I got
them and took about 10 bottles of Vegetable Compound and could
feel myself regaining my health. I also used Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Sanative Wash and it has done me a great deal of good. Any one
coming to my house who suffers from female troubles or Change of
Life, I tell them to take the Pinkham remedies. There are about 20
of us here who think the world of them.” — Mrs. Florence Isella,
Box 197, North Haven, Conn.

IS 110 YEARS OLD
HERO OF MANY A BATTLE FIELD
WHERE GENERALSHIP MADE
Today is the birthday of the South’s
great general and strategist, General
Robert Edward Lee, the man who led
the intrepid hosts of Dixie to many a
victory, and. who was finally overcome
by exhaustion, the result of being out-
numbered He is recognized the world
over as an able general, and those who
knew him personally never tire of tell-
ing of his beautiful personal charac-
If such a thing had been possible
as General Lee living to this day he
would be 110 years old, according to
Mr. Smith Lipscomb of this city, who
had the honor of being with the great
chieftain in the Civil War.
There is a picture on the wall at the
Favorite office of General Lee. It is
not the picture usually seen of General
Lee, but shows him in the twilight of
life, just a few years before he died.
There is a touch of sadness in his
eye and his hair is much whiter and
he looks feeble, but with it all there
remains the splendid open countenance
and the contour still marks the man.
WIEE BE ADVANCED

Will Find a Helpful Suggestion in
Overworked, run down “fagged
out” women who feel as though they
could hardly drag about, should pro-
fit by Mrs. Carter’s experience. She
says:—“I am the mother of six
children and I got so weak and run-
down that I couldn’t eat any^hingand
it seemed almost impossible for me
to get around to do my work. I tried
different doctors’ remedies without
benefit. I saw Vinol advertised and
decided to try it, and received som ueh
benefit from the first bottle that I
continued to take it, and it has built
up my strength and made me strong
and well. I consider Vinol the best
medicine I have ever taken, and advise
all weak, run-down women to try it.”
Mrs. Bessie Carter, State Road, N. C.
If all the tired, overworked, run-
down women in Bonham could only
realize how our delicious Vinol, which
contains beef and cod liver peptones,
iron and manganese peptonates and
glycerophosphates, supplies the vital
elements necessary to build up blood
and strength, we wouldn’t be able to
supply the demand. —J. W. Peeler,
druggist, Bonham, also the leading
drug store in all Texas towns.

Snatched From the Operating Table and
Possible Death I -.......................—=
How would you feel if you were told by your family physician that he had done all he could for you, and that an operation of the
gravest nature was the only hope of prolonging your life? And how would you feel, if, after you had decided to have the operation per-
formed, an unseen messenger should come to you with the gladsome information that there was hope for you without the operation, and
having the way pointed out to you, you sought the winged messenger of hope and found it in Chiropractic? Wouldn’t it be a joyful revela-
tion and wouldn’t you rejoice at your good fortune.
1 his lady, whose statement follows, says she had no hope of coming off the operating table alive, but if she did recover, felt that her days
would be lessened by many years Fortunately for her, she had heard of the wonderful successes of Chiropractic Adjustings, and like many
others, decided she would consult a Chiropractor before taking a probably fatal leap. She did do so, here’s her story in her own words:
SAVED FROM OPERATION
Mrs. Pearl Blackbird, who was reared in Bonham, but who is now living at Lehigh, Okla., and
has been taking Chiropractic adjustings at the Bonham Chiropractic Adjustry for the past ten
days, concerning her condition says: For some years past I had been trouble with a disease pe-
culiar to my sex and suffered untold agonies. My family physician of Lehigh, Okla., frankly told
me that medicine would do no good and recommended an operation as the only thing that would
give me relief. On the 5th day of January, 1917, I arrived in Bonham for the purpose of having
my sister, Mrs. Charles Hays, to accompany me to Sherman, where I intended to have the opera-:
tion performed the next day. After arriving in Bonham my attention was called to the wonder-
ful success of Chiropractic adjustings being performed at the Bonham Chiropractic Adjustry, and
I decided before going to Sherman to have the directors of that institution pass on my case.
They told me my condition so correctly that I decided to follow their advice and take Chiropractic.
After taking eight adjustings I was given consideiable relief. Now with the tenth adjusting I feel
better than I have for several months past and am so improved that I am confident Chiroprac-
tic has done more for me than an operation would have done. I have a good appetite, sleep well
and have received a new lease on life. I have been saved the pain, anxiety and expense of an
operation. I cannot find words adequate to express my appreciation and gratitude to the Bon-
ham Chiropractic Adjustry for the good they have done me. MRS. PEARL BLACKBIRD.
I AM BETTER, THANK YOU
Miss Minnie Thornton, who lives at 416 East Fifth street, Bonham, Texas, says: I had suf-
fered for many years from chronic constipation and have taken an inestimable quantity of med-
icine, none of which did me any good. My state of health gradually grew worse until last August
I was forced to give up and quit work. I became so nervous that I was on the verge of collapse.
My sleep was delirious and my appetite failed me. I was in such condition that I became morose
and melancholy, and did not have much interest in life. As I had tried all remedies recommended
to me for such troubles, as well as numerous medical doctors, my hopes of ever securing perma-
nent relief were indeed slim. However, I decided to give Chiropractic a trial, and I am happy to
state the results have proven most marvelous and surprising. I am feeling better than I have for
many, many months. My bowels are normal, headaches and nervousness have entirely disap-
peared, and I feel as though I were in a new world. My improvement was rapid and steady from
the first adjusting, the troubles above enumerated having disappeared with the fifth adjusting.
Before receiving Chiropractic I was so weak I did not feel like walking around the house. I have
taken eight adjustings and now walk nine blocks to the Bonham Chiropractic Adjustry, and then
back again each day, and I feel I could now walk much further than I do if it were necessary.
I shall always be thankful for what this great science has done for me, and unhesitatingly recom-
mend it to others suffering as I did. MISS MINNIE THORNTON.
What we have done for the above twoladies, we may be able to do for you. Do not despair of hope until you have consulted us.
