Text of advertisement reads, “Nervous Women. For nervous, tired women, we recommend Cardui. Cardui is a woman’s medicine. It acts specifically on the female organs and has a tonic, building effect on the whole system. It contains no harmful ingredients, being a pure vegetable extract. If you suffer from some form of female trouble, get Cardui at once and give it a fair trial. Take Cardui — it will help you. Mrs. W. W. Gardner, of Paducah, Ky., tried Cardui and writes: ‘I think Cardui is just grand. I have been using it for eleven years. I am 48 years old and feel like a different woman, since I have been taking it. I used to suffer from bearing down pains, nervousness and sleeplessness, but now the pains are all gone and I sleep good. I highly recommend Cardui for young and old.’ Try it. At all drug stores.”
