Recovery After Years of
Miss Muriel Armltagc, 30 Green

Organizer of tho ltoyal Templars of
Temperance, In a recent letter, says:
"I think that a woman naturally
shrinks from making her troubles
public, but restored health has meant
so much to mo that I feel for tho
sako of other suffering women it is
my duty to tell what Pcrutia has
dono for me.
"I suffered for flvo years with
utcrino Irregularities, which brought
on hysteria and made me a physical
wreck. I tried doctors from tho dif
ferent schools of medicine, but with
out nny perceptible change In my
condition. In my despair I called on
an old nurse, who advised mo to try
Pcrutia, unit promised good results it
I would persist and take It regularly.
I thought this was the least I could
do, and procured a bottle. I knew as
soon as 1 began taking It that It wai'
affecting mo differently from any
thing I hud used before, and so I
kept on taking It. I kept this lip for
six months, and tteaillly gained
strength and health, and when I had
used llfteen bottles I considered my
self entirely cured. I am a grateful,
happy woman to-day." Miss Muriel
Pcrutia cures catarrh of the pclvlo
organs with tho same surety as it
cures catarrh of tho head. Peruna
has become renowned as a positive
cure for female ailments simply be
cause the ailments arc mostly duo
to catarrh. Catarrh Is tho cause ot
tho trouble. Peruna cures tho ca
tarrh. The symptoms disappear.
work without tho greatest exhaustion.
This Is a very common sight nnd Is al
most always duo to pelvic catarrh.
It Is worso than foolish for so many
women to suffer year after year with a
disease that can be permanently cured.
Peruna cures catarrh permanently. It
cures old chronic cases as well asasllght

length of time that It should be taken
to effect a cure.
If you do not derive prompt and ratls
