The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least one dreaded disease
that science has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that is catarrh. Catarrh being
greatly influenced by constitutional conditions
requires constitutional treatment. Hall’s
Catarrh Cure is taken internally and acts thru
the Blood on the Mucous Surfaces of the Sys
tem thereby destroying the foundation of the
disease, giving the patient strength by building
up the constitution and assisting nature in
doing its work. The proprietors have so much
faith in the curative powers of Halt’s Catarrh
Cure that they offer One Hundred Dollars for
any case that it fails to cure. Send for list of
testimonials.

ROAD TO HEALTH IS
THROUGH THE KIDNEYS
No person alive is stronger than his kidneys.
The minute the kidneys become disarranged or
clogged with waste the warning is flashed
throughout the entire system. The greater
part of all sickness today can be avoided by
keeping the kidneys working properly.
A. A. Howes & Co, the popular druggists,
cai tell you of many well-known people in this
city whom Solvax, the standard kidney remedy,
has restored to health, often after they have
tried many other methods of treatment with
little or no benefit.
This remarkable kidney remedy is guaran
teed to} help the worst case of lazy, sluggish,
clogged-up kidneys, or the general, headachy,
kinky-backed, played-out condition that afflicts
people suffering with kidney trouble. Solvax
does not simply relieve. It aims to cure.
No other kidney remedy has made such a
large percentage of cures as Solvax. It is so
large that A. A. Howes & Co. is perfectly}safe
in standing ready to refund the pYice tojjany
customer wfepm it does not help.
