A Treatment That Ts Modern, Scien
tific, .ami "What Is or Much More
Importance, a Treatment '.That
Cn res 5 a Month A "Free Trial.
Dr. Cowden's treatment that lias lifted the dark
nets and blight of the word "incurable" from
hundreds of thousands of these caes of diseases
in the Throat, Ilronchial Tubes and Lungs, works
its curatie action for two reasons:
(1) It reaches every sore spot, from ,the orifice,
of the note tp the deepest part of the lungs, to the
innermost recesses of the middle ear.
(2) Instead of irritating, inflaming, and feeding"
the fires of the disease, it soothes," quiets, heals
What is the treatment that cures these condi
tions, once regarded incurable? I!y what process
I docs it restore the diseased membrane, remove the
poison and relieve the soreness of disease? Let the
experience of persons cured and being cured tell.
.HOW IT CURES
Here is a patient taking treatment for Catarrh
in tho Head. He breathes the soothing medication
through his nostrils, and the nasal channels open
up, the stufftd-up feeling in the head leaves, ar.d
he can breathe naturally through the nos: a.;aiu.
The dull pains acres the front of the head fade
away, and the nasal membrane is soothed until
inflammation and soreness arc all gone. The bad
odor of the breath pases away, and the lost sense
of smell returns. The dropping in the throat is
checked, the no'-e does not top up toward night
any mere, the sneezing and snulhng have ceased,
the discharge from the nose -grows less and less
and finally stops altogether. The disease has been
checked and eradicated from the system before it
ever reached the throat. It has not been driven
down into the throat or into his lunt;s or into his
ears, as is so often done by other treatments.
HOW IT CURES
CATARRH OF THE THROAT.
Hero is another patient who had Catarrh in the
Head. He caught cold after cold, and the disease
spread down into his throat. , He breathes and
drinks in the disease-banishing medication. It
bathes the membranes of his head and throat.
The soreness of the head and throat becomes less
and the desire to hawk and spit is disappearing,
the sense of tate is returning, and the voice again
becomes soft and melodious. There is no more
gagging and vomiting in the morning. No longer
docs every exposure to the weather result in a
stuffed-up tin oat that becomes sore and inflamed,
and no longer does he find his throat and tongue
dry as chips when lit wakes from an unrefrcshing
HOW IT CURES
Here is another patient who for years had been
a sufferer. Even- fresh cold seemed to Tta.v longer
than former colds, and he noticed that his cars
got stopped up and his hearing became duller and
duller and there were ringing and buzzing noises
in his ears. The catarrh had pacd upward and
backward from the throat along the eustachian
tubes leading from the throat into the car. He
had visited throat doctors and car doctors and
catarrh doctors without relief. In this condition
we find him inhaling the never-failing medication,
and soon he notices a change. The noises in the
ear stop, there is no more discharge, the hearing
gets better, and finally the tulcs of the ears open
up and something seems to give way in the head.
His hearing had completely returned. No wonder
he considers the result a marvel.

This rate applies to all patients and all diseases,
includes all medicines, visits to office, examination

TRIAL TREATA1ENT FREE.
That all may have an adequate and correct idea
of the 3IcCoy treatment, the wonderful results of
which arc attracting the attention of the whole
country. Doctor Cowden has generously arranged
for a limited time to give all applicants on
their first visit a Trial Treatment Free. This is
purely for educational purposes. In a few years
this treatment will be in general adoption by the
profession, and it is the desire of its dis-covercrs
that it be seen and noted by as many people as
possible in the offices of the National Practice
which Doctor McCoy has instituted in Washing
ton. Don't wait for some friend to get cured,
but call and have a free trial in your own case.
