Sisters of the flood Shepherd.
When catarrh once fastens Itself upon
the system, It becomes an obstinate dis-
ease to eradicate,
A systemic remedy-one that reaches
every internal organ of tbe body—Is tn
absolute necessity.
Peruna is just such a remedy. It
searches out tlie causo of thu disease,
healing arret strengthening the mucous
membranes, and thus giving Nature an
opportunity to perform her part of the
restorative process,
One of the many hospitals which
have found Peruna of value ln treating
old and obstinate cases of catarrh Is the
Hospital Bt. John, who write, as
follows:
"We are happy to tell yoa that yonr
Peruna has given ns satisfaction. Three
patients have tried lt, one 68 years old,
1 [ennui Dupnis, afflicted wltb catarrh, ls
much relieved, more than be haa been
for a number of years.
"A younz girl, IS years old, had to

Peruna caused tn disappear.
"As to myself, two bottles have convinced mo thtt Pernna ls magnificent

walk a mile easily.
"Through these three cases we desire
to make known to the pablte the ef-
flotenoy of your remedy,"
Hospital St. John, of Si, Johns,
Province of Quebec.
A later letter received from tbe same
institution reads as follows i
•TArse ret/re ago I wrote to tell
you how satisfactory wt found
Peruna. We recommend It highly tor
colds cougha, catarrh and neuralgia.
"I havs used lt myself as a tonic with
the best results, taken as directed, half
a teaspoonful every half hour."
Peruna not only promptly relieves
coughs and colds la their first stages,
but Is equally prompt and efficient for
catarrhal diseases in the chronio stage.
Of course, it ls only reasonable to
suppose that a great deal less medicine
will be necessary to en re a slight attack
of catarrh than would be required to
relieve the ailment after 11 had been allowed to become chronic.
Directions for taking the remedy will
be found on each bottle, also ln Dr.
