tioned ‘n me report of the commit-
tee on resolutions. A minority re-
port was submitted which recom-
mended that "the American Legion

After Thorough Trial a Detroit,
Mich., Man Endorses Ps-ru-na
The following letter written
.....tan is no snap
on the merits
from Detroit, Michigan is no snap
judgment expressed cm
of Pe-ru-na, the well-
known catarrh remedy,
but rather a mature,
sober opinion fprmed
after a full years trial.
This is the way Mr.
Michael Fako of 908
East Palmer Avenue,
in the Michigan Metro*
polls, writes i “After
using PE-BU-5A for
about one year will say
I have found it a vary
good medicine for ca-
tarrh. It has helped
me a great deal and I
am very well satisfied. I have
gained in weight, eat and sleep
well, my bowels are regular and
better color in my face.
“PE-BU-N A has done wonders
and to me is worth its weight in
gold. I shall continue to use
■riS-BU-NA as long as
Hive and recommend
to my friends who are
troubled with catarrh.”
Nothing can be more
convincing than an en-
dorsement ol this na-
ture from an actual
user. There are many
people in every com-
munity whose experi-
ence,in using Pe-ru-na,
has been identical with
Mr. Fako’s. It is the
standby for coughs,
colds, catarrh, stomach
and bowel disorders and all ca-
