From a report made to the l'arl
Illolopical society, by M. Arlong, It ap
pears that animal perspiration, when
injected under the skin, is poisonous.
In experiments made by him, death oc
curred when t lie injection was stroui;
enough, generally within three days,
but hoinetimes not for some weeks.
T?ic perspiration secreted during ardu
ous muscular toil contains more poison
than that secreted during the ordinary
circumstances of life. Is not this proof
positive of the necessity of frequent
bathing of the body? for one's perspira
tion is as poisonous to hisouu body u
to another's. (iood Health.

ADMIRAL SCHLEY, one of the foremost
notable heroes of the Nineteenth Century.
A name that starts terror in the heart of every
Spaniard. A man of steady nerve, clearhead,
undaunted courage and prompt decision.
Approached by a friend recently, his opinion
was asked as to the efficacy of Peruna, the
national catarrh remedy. Without the slight
est hesitation he gave this remedy his en
dorsement. It appeared on later conversa
tion that Penma has been used in his family,
where it is a favorite remedy.
Such endorsements serve to indicate the
wonderful hold that l'eruna has upon the
minds of the American people. It is out of
the question that so great and famous a man
as Admiral Schley could have any other
reason for giving his endorsement to l'eruna
than his positive conviction that the remedy
is all that he says it is.
The fact is' that Peruna has overcome all

opposition and has won its way to the hearts
of the people. The natural timidity which
so many people have felt about giving en
dorsements to any remedy is giving way.
Gratitude and a desire to help others has
inspired thousands of people to give public
testimonials for l'eruna who heretofore would
not have consented to such publicity.
Never before in the annals of medicine has
it happened that so many men of national
and international reputation have been will
ing to give unqualified and public endorse
ments to a proprietary remedy. No amount
of advertising could have accomplished such
a result, l'eruna has won on its own merits.
