An editor of a medical journal
writes as follows :
"Dr. A H. Keller's Sylvtm Ozone
offered by the Dr. A. H. Keller
Chemical Company as a cure for
Consumption , Asthma , Bronchitis ,
Hay Fever , Catarrh , Coughs ,
Colds and all diseases of the air
passages. This wo know to be a
genuine speciflo for these complaints -
plaints , and as such , entitled to
our confidence and that of our
"Close examination into the
practical results which have been
had from the use of this remedy
has caused us to endorse it as be
ing an undoubted cure for the
nbovft nilments , effectual in re
moving the exciting cause iu a
number of attacks which had been
of the severest and most tedious
character. Dr. A. H. Keller's Syl
van Ozone permanently restored
health , and iu cases which were
of a milder description its use im
mediately afforded relief. "
