Catarrh of the Stomach by Po-ru-na,
AFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS' SUFFERING.
More Evidence of Interest to the Millions of Catarrh
Sufferers in the United States.
HON. J. 1). 130TKO, CONGKESSMAJf-AT-LAJIGE FROM KANSAS.
In a recent letter to Dr. Ilartman, Congressman Botkin, of AYinfield, Kan.,
Whose lame is a national one, says of. l'ervma :
My Dear Doctor It gives me pleasure to certify to the excellent cura
tive qualities of your medicines Peruna and Manalin. I have been afflicted
more or less for a quarter of a century with catarrh of the stomach and con
stipation. A residence in Washington has increased these troubles. A few
bottles of your medicine have given me almost complete relief, and I am
sure that a continuation of them will effect a permanent cure. Peruna is
surely a wonderful remedy for catarrhal affections." J. D. Botkin,
CONGRESSMAN BOTKIN is one ol
the most influential and best
known men in the State of Kansas.
AVhatever he may say on any subject
will be accepted by the people as the
truth. So famous a remedy as Peruna
could not have well escaped the atten
tion of so famous a man. Ife not only
lias heard of the remedy, but he has
used it and was relieved of an affliction
of twenty-five years' standing1. Peruna
is the one internal remedy that cures
chronic caiarrh. It cures catarrh
wherevj located. This is a fact that
the people are rapidly finding- out, but
.V-there are still a large multitude who
need to know it.
Jlr. Frank Iiichter, of Winona, Minn.,
teays in a letter to The Peruna Medi
"As a remedy for catarrh I taJce
pleasure in recommending Peruna for
catarrh of the stomach. I know what
it is to be afflicted with this awful dis

word in behalf of the remedy which,

"My catarrh was principally located
in my head and stomach. I tried many
remedies without success. I tried sev

cure me. I read of Peruna in the pa

mucous follicles of the stomach.

A man who called himself a "demon
strator" invaded a Vv est Pniiadclphia board
ing house patronized by university stu
dents. Hearing of his claims to education
al distinction tlie students tried to draw the
newcomer into conversation, and finally he
was asked to show what kiud of practical
work he could do. Immediately tue young
man pulled out a box of wnite paste,
smeared it on a window pane and polished
the glass with a chamois skin. "Tliere, gen
tlemen," he said, "if anyone can make a
clearer demonstration tiian that let him
step up." The students notified the land
lady that it was not professional for this
kind of a demonstrator to pose in their
midst, and the stranger shook the dust from
his feet against all in that house and sol
emnly announced tjiat he left thein to do
the dust of ages. Turning to a dental stu
dent, he exclaimed: "I throw it in your
teeth that when I have sold all my territory

Aiklng Too Much.
A Louisville man is considered a sort of
authority on all literary topics. He is con

ifter him for information on a certain top

somehow or other his dudelets was slow to
catch on. He wanted to know the why and
wherefore of a lot of things connected with
the subject. Why was it thusly. and where
fore'was it not so and so? The literary man
explained and explained until he grew
weary. Finally his boredom and irritation
overcame his politeness. "Sir," he thun
dered, angrily, "you come to me for infor
mation on this subject. I give you the facts,
but. Heaven knows, I cannot give you the
brains to grasp them. You ask too much."
