A DAILY NUISANCE.
'AHImpIe Ttrmeilr 'WIilcli "Will Inter
est Catarrh Sufferers.
In Its earlier stages catarrh Is more of a
nuisance than a menuee to th general
health: but soomr or later, the diea--e x
tends to tho throat, bronchial tubes and
even to the stomach and lntounes.
Catarrh Is essentially a ciif-ase of the
mocous mmbrane, the local s-ymptoms h"
Jng a profuse discharge of mucus, stoppage
of the nostrUs. Irrltatl.in In throat, causing
coughing, smizmg, gagging and frequent
clearings of the throat and head.
Th usual treatment by local douches,
snuffs, salves, etc., clln Kies tmp-jrary
relief, but anything like a cure can only be
obtained by a treatment which remoies the
catarrhal taint from the blood and the dis
appearance ol tho inflammation from the
A new remedy which meets these require
ments and which so far has been remark
ably successful in curing catarrh Is Stuart's
These tablets act upon the blood and mu
cous incmhrnne- only They can hardly
be called a secret patent medicine a.s they
nxe composed of such valuable remedies as
Sangulnarla. Hjdrastln. Hucalyptol and
fdmllar cleansing -antiseptics, which cure by
eliminating from the blood and mucous sur
faces the catarrhal poison.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets are large, pleas
ant tasting lozenges taken Internally, al
lowing them to dissoUe idowly in the
mouth. In this way they reach the throat,
fauces and the entire alimentary canal.
If desired, they may also be dissolved in
svater and used as a douche, in addition to
the internal usc.but it is not at all necessary
to use a douche; a few of them dissolved m
the mouth dally wilt be tutficltnt. How
ever, when there Is much Moppage of the
nose, a douche made from thcte tablets will
give immediate relief, but the regular dally
use. Internally of these tablets will cure tho
whole catarrhal trouble without resorting
to the Inconvenience of a douche.
Dr. Bement states "that the Internal
treatment for catarrh Is rapidly taking the
place of the old plan of douching and local
implication and further says that probably
tho best and certainly the safest remedy

their composition and all tho really efficient
remedies for catarrh are contained in this

To the Democrtlc Clubs, Societies and Citi

Tho near approach of the National Con

be held In Indianapolis October 3, Imposes
upon Democrats everywhere the duty of
Increasing "ho work of club organization.
This Is a field of patriotic endeavor In
which every citizen of eorv State and Ter

The far-reaching Issues which

Involve our form of Government and the
principles upon which It lias thus :ar se

to become a politician In his own right.

the people themselves must defend It when
It Is In danger.

establishment of dependent colonies under
tho American flig. Is pledged to Increasing

"The Democratic party relies for victory
upon the justice of Its cause and the hearty
co-operation of Its supporters. The work of
defending the nation against Imperialism,
militarism and trusts can be bent advanced
by club organization. It Is a convenient and
Inexpensive method of raising a great vol

"A loyal citizen should be as ready to
crrve his country in times of peace as In
times of war. Let every citizen who sym
pathizes with the Democratic cauee take
It upon himself to do something toward tho
organization of a Democratic club or so
ciety In his own neighborhood. There
should be c club In every precinct In the
country. The power of organization Is Ir
resistible when the people are In earnest.
"AH Democratic State and local commit
tees are requested to see to It that no pre
cinct shall be without a Democratic club.
Time pre."ses and thero should be no delay.
The enemy Is powerful, vigilant and active.
A club organized now will be more effective
than a club organized next sveek.
"It Is Important that every Democratic
organization In the country should Join the
National Association of Democratic Clubs
(headquarters 1370 Broadway. New York),
and should send delegates to the National
Convention of Democratic Clubs at Indian

number of club should be greatly Increased
