Notwlthstondlng that a great number
of people have been cured of chronlo
catarrh by taklng Peruna during the
past cold .seasori. yet It cannot be denlod
that the cold, wet, sformy weather has
retarded many cures, and, ln some cases,
actually ? prevented a cure.
But sprlngtlme has come at last, and
now ls the tlmo for all catarrh suffererB
to' begln a systematlo course of treat

oulty ln tho way of treatlng chronlo
catarrh is that tho patlent ls so llable to
catch cold during the traatment- and
thus delay a cure.
