Summer at the Shore and Slimmer in the Store. It Is sotnetimes remarked that the requirements of society entail as much hard work upon a woman as she mrald perfonn in office or in store. That may be true. The woman who dances the night through may travel more miles than are walked by the woman behind the counter. Her social obligations may be as exacting as business duties. But i'f he society woman dances all night, she can sleep all day. If her calis must be luly paid, she has her carriage in which o drive. She is not at the mercy of an alarm clock in the morning, or of store routine during the day. And, above all, after the round of winter gayeties, there's the sea shore for the summer, with its freedom and its health giving ocean breezes. The chances of health are all in favor of the girl that goes to the shore and all against the girl that stays in the store. SUMMER IN THK CITY is unendurable, says society with its luxurious surroundings. What must summer in a city store te ? At the best it is trying to nerves and temper. The long, languid days, the oppressive atmosphere, the monotonous round of duties are all trying. And vrhen to this is added womanly weakness, the condition is well-nigh unbearable. And yet it must be borne for money must be earned if Ufe is to be sustained. Every working woman owes it to herself to bring her physical health to the highest Standard of excellence- not only I because it increases her happiness, but also because it increases her earning capacity. It is a cruel fact that the floor walker lias, as a rule, no synipatliy with the backache and weakness which inrpel a woman to seek an occasional moment's rest for her aching back, if only by .. ing rigidly agaiast the shelvcs behind her. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription makes weak women strong and sick women well. Hundreds of thousands of women have testified to this fact. "I write a few lines to thank you for your advice and grand remedies, to which I owe my health, and perhaps my life," says Miss Flora I, Greer, of 107 Howe Street, Akron, Ohio. My troubles started during my childhood but did not prove serious until 1893, when I met with an accident caused by a horse running away. From that time I did not see a well day. I suffered at every monthly period with terrible headache, irritation of the spine and pains in my heels so I could not bear them resting on the softest pillow. What I suffered pen could never describe. I had soreness through my hips and ovaries all the time and constant backache. Was afraid to be alone, imagined that everyone hated me, and everything looked like a mountaln. One doctor would teil me one thing ailed me, another would say something altogether different, but they only relieved me. ihen wrote o you in April, 8gg, through the advice of a neigkbor, and followe yonr advice from April to July.
