"The lotion most popular in exclusive circles is made of spurmax and is prepared by dissolving 4 ounces of spurmax in ]/i pint hot water, then adding 2 tcaspoon fuls glycerine. This is much nicer to apply than powder and does not rub off easily. It is inexpensive, and its use goon produces a suft and velvety complexion.

Ringing noises in the ears is good proof that catarrh is going to affect your hear? ing. Here is the proof that HYOMEI ("pronounce it High-o-me) will do more than advertised/ "During the fall of 1909 I found it necessary to consult two local specialists for a catarrhal affection that caused me considerable annoyance and which finally developed into a serious trouble in my ears, resulting in deafness with almost continual buzzing in ears. Despairing of receiving benefit or relief from the phy? sicians, I determined to try the HYO? MEI which I had seen advertised. I used this very thoroughly for several weeks with most gratifying results, all inflam? mation, soreness and buzzing being over? come with an entire restoration of my hearing and general benefit to nasal and throat troubles. I have no hesitancy in recommending this remedy to all who am similarly afflicted with catarrhal troubles.", ?F. C. Vananman, Retired Conductor, Binghamton, N. Y., March. 22, 1910. HYOMEI is guaranteed by Tragic Drug Co. and druggists everywhere for catarrh, coughs, colds, sore throat, croup and asthma, or money back. Just breathe it. Complete outfit $1.00.
