A Remarkable Experience of a Prominent
CONGRESSMAN 1 MEEKISON GIVES PE-RU-NA A HIGH
CONGRESSMAN MEEKISON, OF OHIO.
I lion. David Meekison is well known.
Hot only in his own State, but through
out America, lie began his political
career by serving four consecutive
terms as Mayor of the town in which
he lives, during which time he became
widely known as the founder of the
Meekison Dank of Napoleon, Ohio. lie
was elected to the Fifty-fifth Congress
"by a very large majority, and is the ac
knowledged leader of his party in his
Section of the State.
Only one flaw marred the otherwise
complete success of this rising states
man. Catarrh with its insidious ap
proach and tenacious grasp, was his
only unconquered foe. For thirty
years he waged unsuccessful warfare
against this personal enemy. At last
Pe-ru-na came to the rescue, and he
dictated the following letter to Dr.
llartman as the result:
"I have used several bottles of Pe-ru-na
and feel greatly benefited thereby
from my catarrh of the head. I feel
encouraged to believe that if I use it a
short time longer I will be able to fully
eradicate the disease of thirty years'
etanding. Yours truly,
' Many people can tolerate slight ca
tarrhal affections. A little hoarseness,
a slight cough, a cold in the head, or a
trifling derangement of the digestive
organs, do not much disturb the aver
age person in his business. But this is
not true of the public speaker or stage
artist. His voice must always be clear,
Miss Carrlo Thomas.

Hence the popularity of Pe-ru-na
among the leading actors and actresses
of this country.

letters are re

class of people.
Miss Carrie Thomas, in speaking of
Pe-ru-na, says: "I have used Pe-ru-na
with splendid results. Would not be
without it. No money would hire me
to have a settled cold or chronic
cough, or hoarseness. Catarrh is the
most dreadful thing that could happen
to one of my profession. Pe-ru-na is
my shield and protector against this
most undesirable disease. Came
If you do not derive prompt and sat

ru-na, write at once to Dr. Hartman,
giving a full statement of your case
and he will be pleased to give 3rou his
valuable advice gratis.

Claimi jmju's. ft o'Sw B Paid.
Soon after the surrender of the con
federate troops, when horses of the
parfled prisoners were taken from
them, Judge A. M. Unghes, of Mem
phis, filed claims ag-ainst the federal
government on behalf of over 3,500
soldiers of the First Tennessee, Ninth
Tennessee cavalry and other com
mands to secure pay for their stock.
Judge Hughes was in fair shapo to
recover when he died. The agitation
was dropped until his son. Col. A. M.
Hughes recently had a bill introduced
in congress carrying an appropriation
to pay all stock claims of paroled
confederates. The bill passed during
the closing hours of congress, and the
hundreds of claims will be adjudicat
ed and paid at once. Many of the
Tennesseeans lost their stock at
Strawberry Plains, while returning
after the Greeville, N. C, surrender,
which was taken because they refused
to march under the victorious flag.

Hospitals in our great cities are sad places to visit.
Three-fourths of the patients lying on those snow-white
beds are women and girls.
Why should this be the case ?
Because they have neglected themselves.
Every one of these patients in the hospital beds had plenty
of warning in that bearing-down feeling, pain at the left or
right of the womb, nervous exhaustion, pain in the small of
the back. All of these things are indications of an unhealthy
condition of the ovaries or womb.

I had suffered from suppressed and painful
menstruation from a girl. The doctors told me
the ovaries would have to be removed. I took
treatment two years to escape an operation,
but still remained in miserable health in both
body and mind, expecting to part with my
reason with each coming month. After using
one bottle of the Compound, I became entirely

use your remedies until cured.
