Light on Female Diseases.
What used to be called female disease,
by the medical profess'ion is now called
pelvic catarrh. It has been found by
experience that catarrhal diseases of the
pelvic organs are the cause of muost
cases of female diseases.
Dr. Hartman was among the first of
America's greatest physicians to make
this discovery. For forty years he has
boon treating diseases peculiar to women
and long ago he reached the conclusion
- that a woman entirely free from ca
tarrh al affection of these organs would
not be subject to female diseases. He,
therefore, began using Peruna for these
cases and found it so admirably adapted
to their permanent cure that Peruna has
now become the most famous remedy
for female diseases ever known. Every
where the women arc using it u'nd prais
ing it. Peruna is not a palliative sim
ply; it cures by removing the cause of
Peruna builds up the nerves and re
stores the appetite and digestion.

One reason why Peruna has found
permanent use in so many homes is that

Peruna is perfectly harmless. It can be
