You have I tried to select .t <ii?-'t that would keep your I bowels regular. In thif. you have failed and were obliged to go bark to your laxa tives again This, I bay, has been going on many years. You ol-o have a blight catarrh in the head ami throat. You never imagined that the catarrh had anything to do with the constipation. Suppose I were to tell you that as long as you have that catarrh you will never get Letter of your constipa? tion. Would you believe me? Well, whether you would believe me or not. It is t!i<- truth. Kor many years I have been wrestling with ti e problem of furnishing the public an internal r.narrh remedy. Peruna ha, been the remedy that I have devised, and it has certainly relieved many thousand people, yea hundreds of thousands of ', pt ? >plc, oi chronic catai rh. Constipation was my chief difficulty in treating these cases. I often felt that it would 1": better if a laxative element w< re add< d to Peruna, I feared to do so, ! however, firs! because of the number of catarrhal patients who needed no laxa? tive, and second I was afraid of making such a radical change in a remedy that was already doing bo well. Thus it was that I continued to prescribe with the Peruna a bottle of Manalin to those, who ? needed a laxative. At last, under circuin? states explained in my booklet, I was ? constrained to add the laxative clement to Peruna. This constitutes what is now | known as the revised Peruna. Now those who take Peruna will, first, find themselves promptly relieved of their. constipation. Second, the catarrh will gradually disappear. And once the ca- ' tarrh is cured the constipation leaves per manently. Then if you fellow the advice, given in my book, you will never have to take pills any more. Cathartics and lax.i tives you ran ignore. You will be perma nently relieved of both your catarrh and the constipation. Peruna is for sale at all drug stores.

Always trace them to lazy liver, delayed, fermenting food in the bowels or ,i sick stomach. Poisonous, constipated matter, gases and bile gener? ated in tiie bowels, instead of being car? ried out of the system, is reabsorbed into the blood. When this poison reaches the delicate brain tU?.ie it causes congestion and that dull, sickening headache; Cascarets remove t he cause by stimu? lating1 the liver, making the bile and con stipatif'n poj?on move on and out of the [bowels. The effect is almost instanta? neous. Ladies whose sensitive organisms are especially prone to sick headaches, need not suffer, for they can be quickly cured by Cascarets.
