Necessity alone has spurred me on to

"There are Just as noble and Just as re

have expresssd it who have attacked Sirs.
Claxon's paper so ferociously, but always
from necessity. I do not. of course, tnink
women were put here to be burdens: they
have a mission truly, but It is decidedly
different from man's.
"True, things have changed from Slother

and are being more often compelled every
day, to go forth and toil alongside of men

Is appreciated most. It Is as a wife and
mother she Is most honored and respected:
that Is her mission, and I cannot under
stand how any true woman can feel there

Sirs. Ieslle Carter, probably the most
prominent actress In America, saj-s thei fol
lowing of Peruna:
"Peruna Is sure to prevent a co'd. It will
stop a cuugn u
fore It becomes
settled. It curs

could tempt m
to be without this
remedv for even a
daj It is just the
remedv- all womn
need.esperlallj- such
women that are
exposed (o the
vicissitudes of cli
mate as I am.
"I never neglect
an opportunity to
recommend this
remedj to my
friends. It Is
America's greatest
remedj- for Amer
ica's greatest
enemy, ratarrh and catarrhal affections. I
would not have cat.irrh for a million dol
lars, and as long as I have Peruna at hand
to check the slightest sj-mntoms of Its ap
proach. I feel perfectly safe from this dis
ease." N." Leslie Carter.
Any one who wishes perfect health must
be entirely free from catarrh. Catarrh Is
well-nigh universal: almost omnipresent.
Peruna Is the onlj- absolute .safeguard
known. A cold Is the beginning of catarrh.
To prevent colds, to cure colds, is to cheat
catarrh out of Its victims. Peruna not only
cures catarrh but prevents it. Every house
hold should be supplied with this great
remedv for coughs, colds and catarrhal
depth of 4J7 feet. A company has been
formed .with a capital stock of -30.000 to
operate the shaft. The controlling intercct
is owned by Randolph Smith of Ilnra and
Henry Hummert of Breese. An effort win

' Sliss I.cnore Allen, 407 Howell Street, ban Francisco,
Cal., writes:
consider Peruna an infallible remedy
for catarrhal diseases. For several years I
have been troubled with influenza, espe
cially during cur rainy season. I used to
catch cold so easily that 1 was afraid to be
out when the weather was the least bit in
clement, cr in the evening sir. But since
1 have used Peruna I have nothing what
ever the matter with me. I am in perfect
health, and find that Peruna acts as a tonic,
and seems to throw all sickness and disease
out of the body. I go anywhere now and
in all kinds of weather, seem to have an
irmn cosstitution and enjoy life because I
enjoy perfect health." Lenorc Allen.

'I have used your Peruna both for
