CARD FROM H. O. ROLFS.
Liberal Offer to Treat Worst Case
of Catarrh in Rock Island.
To the Editor: For some time 1
have had an opportunity to watch the
results following the use of Hyomei, a
treatment for catarrh that cures by
breathing medicated air, absolutely
without any stomach dosing. The re
sults have been so remarkable that I
feel justified In making a public offer
to treat the worst case of catarrh in
Rock Island with the understanding
that if Hyomei does not cure it will
cost absolutely nothing.
The complete Hyomei outfit costs
only SI, and consists of an inhaler
that can be carried in the vest pocket,
a medicine dropper and a bottle of Hy
omei. ' Should this not be enough for
a cure extra bottles of Hyomei can be
obtained for 50 cents."
I hope this ofer will be accepted by
many of your readers.
Very truly your,
H. O. ROLFS,
Harper House Pharmacy.

MANY PEOPLE SUFFEP
A Sure and Safe Relief.
Constipation Is most often caused by
a torpid liver or failure of the stomach
and bowels to perform their proper
functions. The condition is commonly
due at first to irregular habits of liv
ing and improper food, and if properly
treated can be readily relieved. It is.
however, too often aggravated and
made chronic by the use, as medicine,
of powerful and expensive drugs, which
nurge and perhaps give temporary re
lief, but are so drastic In effect as to
damage the tender lining of the stom
ach and bowels, leaving a condition
worse than at firsL This can, however,
be avoided, and the bowels gently end

ture's own remedy the famous Natur

JANOS which has been relieving suf

nearly half a century. One dose, Yz
a tumblerful, drunk on arising in the
morning, (slightly warmed for best re
