A remedy has been found which
cures chronic diseases: not in every
case, but in a large percentage of
them. And in cases too far gone
for cure, it affords relief and often
prolongs life. Many who have
been given ovor by physicians have
been prevailed upon by friends to
try this remedy, the Compound
Oxygen Treatment of Drs. Starkey
& Palen, of Philadelphia, and are
now libing to testify to its curative
powers, lt has been successful in
curing many cases of catarrh, ma?
larial fever, hay fever, asthma
bronchitis, neuralgia, nervous pros?
tration, and other chronic diseases.
In these diseases physicians have
had little success, as the name they
have givau to this class of disorders
indicates, but Compound Oxygen
has worked wonders.
There is only one genuine Com?
pound Oxygen, and any substance
made elsewhere or by others than
Drs. Starkey and Palen, ii Spurious.

wonderful remedy, send for our
book of 200 pages, sent free, with

of surprising cures.
