Not a Fenny Need ?e Paid Unless It
Cures You of Catarrh.
"Uso Hyomol and be cured of ca
tarrh," say Laurons Drug Co. When a
responsible business house like this
comes and advertises that Hyomei will
not cost a ponny uoloss It docs all that
is claimed for it, it shows what rc
markablo confidence they have in ibis
sciontilic medical treatment.
A comploto llyomel outfit consists of ]
a neat inhaler, that can be carriod in
tho pockot or puree, a medicine drop
per and a botte of llyomel, and costs
Tho inhaler lasts a lifetime and when
oxtra bottles of Hyomei are needed,
they can be obtained for 50 cents.
This treatment doos away with all
disagreeable and dangerous stomach
dosing. Breathed through tho Hyo
mei inhaler for a few minutes four
times a day, it impregnates ovory par
ticle of air taken into tho air passages
and lungs with germ-killing and
health-giving balsams. In this way It
cures the most chronic and docp-soated
catarrhal dlseasos of tho air passages
and respiratory organs.
The user is the sole judge whethor Hy
omei is to be paid for or not. If it doos
not help, Laurens'DrugCo., will cheer
fully return the money and it will not
eost a penny.
