Catarrh Can't be Cored
with local applications, as they cannot
rencb the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre'
scribed by oae of the beet physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the bts
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of the two ingredients is what pro

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
