Mr. J. Louis Pfa'u Jr. 1207 .The Temple 184 La Salle Su
Chicago Ills. writes : "For the past twenty-eight years I have
suffered from hay fever caused by catarrh. The hsy fever comes
on every year about the middle of August and lasts six weeks
or more. It is a chronic catarrh of the nasal organs and in
people like myself who have a very sensitive membrane it is
affected by the pollen in the air and is difficult to eradicate.
"I have used almost every medicine that is prescribed for
the ailment but I have had more benefit from the use of Peruna
than from all others 'as Peruna is a stimulant and helps nature
to throw off the attacks. I now .have no bother from catarrh and
I kave been able to shorten the annual attack of hay fever to a
few days of discomfort."
Catarrh does not always produce hay fever. The most
common form of catarrh is nasal catarrh. Read carefully the
four cases presented by this article.

'When t began Peruna my nose was
stopped up half of the time. It was sore
and scabby." So writes Mr. Arthur
Thompson R. R. I. Leesburg Ind. "When
I began your treatment my eyes were in-
named noes was stopped up half ef ths
tlms and wassors and scabby. I could
not rest at night on account of oonflnual
hawking and spitting. I bad tried sev-
eral remedies and was about to give up
but thought I would try Peruna. After
I had taken about one-third of a bottle
I noticed a difference. I am now com
pletely cured after suffering with ca-
tarrh for eighteen years. I think If those
who are afflicted with catarrh would try
Peruna they would never regret K."
