Itonch, United States Sonator from North Dakota, per sonally endorses Poruna, the great catarrh euro nnd tonic. In a recent lotter to The rcriina Medicine Company, nt Ciolunibui, Ohio, written from Washington, D. C, Senator Uoach saya: "Persuaded by a friend I havo used Peruna an a tonic, and I am glad to testify that It has greatly helped mo In strength, vigor and appetite, I have been advised by Mends that It Is remarkably efflcatloui as a curl for the almost universal complaint of catarrh." V. N. Roach, Larlmorv, North Dakota, No other remedy can take the place of Peruna. Mr. Ed J. Maklnson, contractor nnd bulldur, 010 Grand Block, Wa bash street, St. Paul, Minn., says: "Many doctor bllb can be aavod by tho iiho of IVruna. I have all my frh.nds taking I'oi'iina, and 1 have heard n o t h 1 n k I) u t pr a 1 1 e from them. Last fall I had a bud coiiKh. I took four bottles of 1'eruna and It cured mo.

Mukltison, Contractor end Uulidcr. weight 1S3 pounds, and I believe It Ih Peruna that haa given mo such good health." J. Maltlimon. Au a result of tho changeable cli mate, catarrh has become one of tho most prevalent and universal dis eases known to man. Nearly one third of the people of tho United States aro afflicted with catarrh In some of Its many phases and stages. Add to this tho Met tnat catarrh rap Idly tends to become llxed or chronic, also the further fact that It Is ca pable of producing a great many other diseases, and wn begin to real ize the truo nature of this drcud dls easo. So formidable has catarrh become that In every city or town of any size- numeroun doctors aro to bo found who mako tho treatment of ca tarrh a specialty. Of course a great deal of good Is accomplished In this way, but as yot a comparatively small number of tho people can avail thomselves of this treatment bo cause of the great ex pens t necessa rily attached to It.

To nil such people Dr. Hurtman's rcmody, Peruna, romes as a grciit boon, Not only Is It more sutTo.ssful In curing catarrh' than the treatment of tho catarrh specialists, but it is within tho reach of every person In this land. Peruna can be bought at any drug store, and Is a remedy without equal for catarrh In all forms, coughs, rolds, bronchitis, con sumption, and all climatic discuses of winter. Tcruna Is not a guess, nor an ex periment; It Is an absolute, sclon tlflc certainty, Peruna cures catarrh wherever located. Peruna has no substitutes no rlvnls. Insist upon having Peruna. Let no one persuade you that some other rrmedy will do nearly as well, There Is no other systemic remedy for catarrh but Po runa. . Mr. rtyron J. KIrkhuff, attorney, conns ellor-at-law writes from 6UI Gates ave., Brooklyn, N. Y., the following: "I have used your Peruna for catarrh and llnd its c u r a t I v powers nil you recommend, 1 1 cured me of a very bad attack and though I s u ft e r o d for years 1 feci en tirely relieved, and If It will benefit other, I gladly give It Byron J.
