If people could ot.iy understand that
svstemlc ratarih is an internal disease
that external aj-plications can not cure
they would not need to be warned bo
often about this malady which when
neglected paves the way oftttmes for
consumption at the' cost of ini.iions of
lives every year. Yet catarrh may b.:
Hired if the right treatment is employ-
ed. Catarrh Is caused by a general dis-
eased state of the system which leads
commonly to annoying and perhaps se-
rious bxal conditions which may prove
a ftrrtlle breeding ground for germs of
eor.pumption. External remedies give
but temporary ease.
The only way to successfully treat ca-
tarr i is bv employing a medicine which
is absorbed and carried by the blood to
all parts of the system so that the mu-
cous memi-rane or Internal lininir of the
I body : toned up and made capable of
resisting the infection of consumption
and otner diseases.
"We have a remedy prepared from the
pres.-rlptlnn of a physician who for thir-
tv v.-ars studied and made catarrh a spe-
cial y. and whose re.-ord was a patient
