Article from San Francisco Call and Post Newspaper March 6, 1917 https://cdnc.ucr.edu/?a=d&d=SFC19170306.2.43&e=-------en--20--1--txt-txIN--------1 Well-Known Women of. California Lend a Helping Hand Text Why may this text contain mistakes? Correct this text Well-Known Women of. California Lend a Helping Hand These and many more women In California who have been benefited by taking Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription wish to extend the good news to others: Mrs. H. Cabecina, who resides at 30S9D Harrison st.. San Francisco, Cal., says: "After my baby came I was very weak, nervous and run down, had headaches, terrible backaches, and seemed like I never would .get well and strong again—I was miserable. A friend told me about Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, so 1 decided to take it. I took six wv-ues, also took the Pleasant Pellets. 1 soon improved, and when I had finished taking the six bottles was well and strong. Am glad to recommend Dr. Pierce's remedies to others.” Mrs. R. B. Ralph of 60 Terllurium st. Redding. Cal., says: "Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription is perfectly wonderful. I owe everything to this medicine. When I was passing through middle life I had severe pain and had terrible headaches. I suffered everything. Finally. I decided to take the "Favorite Prescription’ ; it stopped the headaches, the pains and the hemorrhages. I never had any more trouble. It really is great” Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription has been a favorite with women for nearly fifty years because it contains no alcohol or any narcotic. It is put up in both liquid and tablets and Is to be found In almost any drug store. If not obtainable, send $l.OO to Dr. Pierce Invalids’ Hotel. Buffalo, N. Y., and ho will send large package of tablets, or send 50 cents for smaller sixe. Mrs. J. W. Brown of Sanchez st., San Francisco, Cal., says: "I have taken Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription for my nerves and found it good. I also gave it to my daughter. She was apparently going into consumption on account of functional derangement. She had no appetite, was nervous, had bright red spots on cheeks, night sweats. The doctors failed to help her and all other remedies failed. She only took two bottles of Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription when she got entirely well. "My mother took the Golden Medical Discovery for asthma and a bad cough and found It good. Dr. Pierce’s medicines have never failed us, and we have used them for years.”
