Mr. Kditok: Having read lu your pa
per reports ot the remarkable cures ol
catarrh, I am Inddcei to tell "wbnt I
know about cutarrb," and 1 fan:y the
"anua,' and "iuhallng tube" makers
(mere dollar grabbers) would be glad If
they could emblazon a similar cure in
the paper. For 26 years I suflred with
catarrh. The nawtl pasangci became
completely closed. "Snnfi." 'duat,n
'shea," "Inhaling tubes." and "sticks,"
wouldn't work, though at .intervals 1
would sniQ up the so-called catarrh snuff,
until I became a valuable tester for such
medicine. I gradually grew worse, and
no one can know how much I sufletcd
or what a inirr.iblo being I was. My
head ached over my eyes so that I was
coiiiliicd to my bed for many successive
day?, suffering the most Intense pnln,
which at ono time lasted continuously
for ICS bourn. AH sense of moll and
taste gone, sight and hearing Impaired,
body shrunken and weakened, nervous
aystem shattered and constitution broken,
and I was hawking and spitting seven
eighths of the time, 1 prayed for death
lo relieve me ol my suflcrlng. A iavora
lle notice lu your paper of Dr. Sage's
(,'atnrrh Komcdy Induced me to purchase
a package and uho It with Dr, Tierce's
Nasal Douche, which applies the remedy
by hydrostatic pressure, the only way
compatible with commou sen. Well,
Mr. Kdittr, It did not cure me lit Ihroe
fourths of a second, nor In ono hour or
month, but iu loss than eight minutes 1
was relieved, and In three mouths entire
ly cured, and bnvo remalnod so lor over
sixteen months. While using tho Catarrh
Itemedy, I used Dr. l'ieroe's Golden
Medical Discovery to purify my blood
and strengthen my stomach. 1 also kept
tny liver active and bowels regular by
the uso ol his rieossnt Purgative Pellets.
H tny cxperlenco will induce other
Mifferers to seek tho sumo means ot re
lief, this letter will have answered Us
