Remedies for catarrh are almost
us numerous as catarrh sufferers,
but very few have any actual merit
as a cure, the only god derived be
ing simply a temporary relief.
There is, however, a very effective
remedy recently discovered which is
rapidly becoming famous for its
great value in relieving and perma
nently curing all forms of catarrhal
diseases, whether located in the
head, throat, lungs or stomach.
This new catarrh cure is principal
ly composed of a gum derived from
the eucolyptus tree, and this gum
possesses extraordinary healing and
antiseptic properties. It is taken in
ternally in the form of a lozenge or
tablet, pleasant to the taste and so
harmless that little children take
them with safety and benefit.
Eucolyptus oil and the bark are
sometimes used, but are not so con
venient nor so palatable as the gum.
Undoubtedly the best quality is
found in Stuart's Catarrh Tablets,
which may lw found in any drug
store, and any catarrh sufferer who
has tried douches, inhalers and li
quid medicines, will Ik? surprised at
the rapid improvement after a few-
days use of Stuart'sCatarrh Tablets.

Dr. Ramsdell in sqienking of ca

many experiments I have given up
the idea of curing catarrh by the use
of inhalers, washes, salves or liquid
medicines. I have always had the
best results from Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets; the red gum and other valu
able antiseptics contained in these
tablets make them, in my opinion,
far superior to any of the numerous
catarrh remedies so extensively ad
vertised. The fact that Stuart's Ca

A MISERABLE MAN.
Two Years and Six Months
Sleep seems to be in many cases a
matter of habit, just as eating and
drinking are habits. The Arab whose
desert life leads to abstemiousness, de

saying, No thank you, I drank yester
day." lie drinks only when thirsty,
and like his own camels, he can go long

Even when the disease was far advanced;

the disease and restored the strength.
WHAT FEW MEN KNOW,
is that catarrh in its commonest or
simplest form is a menace not merely
to health but to life. Catarrh of the
lungs is but a step removed from con
sumption. Catarrhal affections should
therefore never be neglected. They are
as dangerous as they are offensive.
"For twelve years I was a sufferer
from catarrh and was treated by one of
the best physicians in the State of North
Carolina, who said the trouble had
reached my lungs," writes Mr. J. M.
Patton, of Clotho, Transylvania Co.,

I tried Dr. Pierce's medicines. Will

tures, working without intermission day
and night. When one felt the need of
sleep he lay on a couch, holding in his
hand a ball, beneath which, on the
floor, was a brazen bowl. When his
muscles relaxed sufficiently to release
the hall, it fell into the bowl, and the
' noise wakened the sleeper who resumed
But it is one thing to give up sleep
and another thing altogether to be
unable to sleep. Those who suffer
from asthma, bronchitis and other dis
eases of the organs of respiration are
! only too familiar with this enforced
' wakefulness. They would give almost
anything for a night s unbroken rest.
THE SECRET OF SLEEP
for them lies in the cure of the diseases
which banish slumber. That this cure
is possible is abundantly proven by
those who have used Doctor Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery for the cure
of bronchitis, obstinate and deep-seated
coughs, lung "trouble" and other dis
eases of the organs of respiration.
"I can this day say that Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is the best
and only remedy I have ever found for
what the doctors call asthma," writes
Mr. F. G. Rodemeyer, of 45 Hayden
Street, Fort Wayne, Ind. "I have suf
fered from hay -fever (and I get. the
asthma with it), every year in August
and September for the last fifteen years,
and could not sleep one night during
that time, until this year, I have not
lost one night's sleep, thanks to Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery; and
best of all I did not get the asthma with
the hay-fever, and I only used two bottles
of the 'Golden Medical Discovery.' "
The cures accomplished by the use of
"Golden Medical Discovery" are ' as
numerous as they are wonderful. The
great triumphs of this medicine have
been won in the cure of chronic dis
eases of many years standing. When
every other medicine had failed to do
more than give tempory relief. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has
made a perfect and permanent cure.
covery with one bottle of Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy cured me, asd to-day
I am well and hearty, and I will say
further that my former physician. Dr.
W. M. Lyday, recommends Dr. Pierce's
medicine to me and to others. I am
sure your medicines will cure any case
of catarrh that exists. I recommend
them to all."
By purifying the blood and increas
ing the activity of the blood-making
glands "Golden Medical Discovery"
strengthens every organ of the body.
Accepting the fact that the blood is the
life, it follows that the healthfulness ol
the physical life will depend upon the
healthfulness of the blood, and that a
deficient supply of blood must result
in a deficiency of physical strength.
"Golden Medical Discovery" gives
health and strength by increasing the
quantity and improving the quality of
the blood. The evidence of this lies in
the marked gain in weight experienced
by those who have become emaciated
by wasting disease, and who have been
cured by the use of "Golden Medical
Discovery." It is not a gain of flabby
fat, but a gain of sound flesh and firm
muscle, and with this gain of flesh and
muscle comes a gain of strength, which
seeks a new outlet for itself in active
exercise. The frequent testimony, "It
has made a new man of me," thoroughly
expresses the real rejuvenation which
comes to those cured by the use of
"Golden Medical Discovery."
Accept no substitute for "Golden
Medical Discovery." No so-called "just
as good" medicine can compare with
the "Discovery" when its record of
cures is considered.
