CATARRHAL TROUBLE PREVALENT.
Pall Months Cause Sickness?Breathe
Hyomci, and be Cured of Catarrh.
Catarrhal troubles arc more common
at this season than at any other time
of the year. The sudden changes that
come during the fall months are pro
ductive of many cases of catarrh that
without proper treatment will become
The plcasantest, most convenient, and
only scientific method for the Ueatment
and cure of catarrh, is Hyomei. Simp
ly put twenty drops in a little pocket
inhaler that comes with every outfit,
and then breathe it for three minutes
four times a day.
No dangerous drug or alcoholic con
coctions are taken into the system when
Hyomei is used. Breathed through the
inhaler, the balsamic fragrance of Hyo
mci penetrates to the most remote cells
of the nose and throat, and thus kills
the catarrhal germs, heals the irritated
mucous membrane, and gives complete
and permanent cure.
Thousands of testimonials have been
given as to the astonishing cures made
by this remedy. J. S. Nugent, treas
urer of the New York Life Insurance
Company, writes: "Hyomei has com
pletely cured my (laughter of catarrh,
from which she has been a sufferer for
The complete Hyomei outfit costs but
one dollar, and as the inhaler will last
a lifetime and there is sufficient Hyomei
for several weeks treatment, it is the
most economical catarrhal remedy
known. Extra bottles can be procured
for fifty cents. Ask the Laurens Drug
Co. to show you the strong guarantee
under which they sell Hyomei.
