There is more catarrh in this section
of the country than all other diseases
put together, and until the last few
years was supposed to bo Incurable.
For a great many years doctors pro
nounced It a local disease and pro?
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced It incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to bo a constitu
tional disease and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional eure on tho market.
It is takon internally in doses from 10
props to a touspoonful. It acts di
rectly on tho blood and mucous sur
faces of the system. They oiler one
hundred dollars for any caso it fails to
eure. Send for circulars and testimon
