A Multitude of Mothers

Not only because it has cured them of
their various ailments, but because it
always rescues the children from the
throes and grasp of catarrhal diseases.
We have in our files bushels of testi

have been cured by Peruna. However,
the large majority of mothers who use
Peruna, we never hear from.
But we io hear from a great number
of mothers who are bo overjoyed at
some special good they have received
from Peruna that they cannot restrain
their enthusiasm. They are anxious to

Mrs. Thre8a Rooke, 258 N. Ashland Avo., Chicago, 111., Treasurer Ladies'
of the Maccabees, writea:
"In oar home Peruna is the only medicine we have. Grandmother, mother,
father and child, all have used Peruna. It is our great remedy for catarrh of
the stomach and head, colds, and female complaints of which it has cured me.
"We find it of great value when my husband becomes worn out or catches
cold. A couple of doses cure him.
"If the baby has colic, or any stomach disorders, a dose or two cured her.
"I consider Peruna finer than any doctor's medicine that I have ever
tried, and I know that as long as we have it in the house, we will all be
able to keep in good health. "?Thresa Rooke.
No Doctor Required.
Mr. Edward Otto, 927 De Soto street,
St. Paul, Minn., writes:
"I cannot say enough for Peruna. It
has done great work in my family, es
pecially for my oldest boy. We had
doctored with three or four different
doctors and they did not seem to do him

Pe-m-na Contains No Narcotics.
One reason why Peruna has found per
manent use in so many homes is that it
contains no narcotic of any kind. Pe
runa is perfectly harmless. It can be
used any length of time without acquir
ing a drug habit. Pernna does not pro
duce temporary results. It is permanent
in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re
moving the cause of catarrh.
There are a multitude of homes where
Peruna has been used off and on for
