PERUNA EDITORIAL NO. I.
l)r. Hartman is now offering Pernna to the public as a regular pharmaceu
tical product. It is just as ethical as any compound put up for the medical
profession. Ho straining of medical ethics can find any fault with it. THE
PRINCIPAL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS are prominently incorporated in the
label on the bottle, that the people may know that the claims made for Peruna
have a true justification.
The only departure we shall make from medical ethics in the conduct of
Peruna affairs in the future, is the fact that we shall continue to advertise and
sell our product TO THE PEOPLE.
If we would agree to sell to doctors only, to advertise for doctors cnlv,
then the medical fraternity would be obliged to recognize Peruna as being
entirely within their approval.
BUT WE SHALL NOT DO THIS.
We shall continue to offer Peruna to the people. We shall continue to
convey to the people our claims for Peruna as a household remedy. We shall
continue to supply the people with free literature, teaching them how to use
our medicine, te iching them how to avoid disease, teaching them many things
of benefit to the homo. W T e shall continue to do this, whether the medical
profession like it or not.
"We are proposing from this time on to take the public into our confidence. j
Notwithstanding that some imitators and substitntors will be attempting to
put up something which they consider just as good as Peruna, we are going to
draw aside the veil of secrecy and allow any one who chooses to know exactly
OP WHAT PERUNA IS COMPOSED.
This ought to disarm all honest criticism. We expect, however, that crit
icism will continue. On some pretext or other those who are envious of the
__ success of Peruna will continue to find

Peruna has benefited thousands of people afflicted with chronic catarrh,

A man has such a good opinion of
himself he thinks his blunders are peo
ple’s plots against him.
TheDoctorSaysßemove the Cause
Don’t think this a PATENT MEDICINE ADVERTISEMENT in connection with a
manure spreader picture, because if you do it will be a mistake. If a man is sick and calls
in a DOCTOR, the DOCTOR tells him he can do him some good—gives him a stimulant
patches him up for a little while, but if he wants to regain his health and become perfectly
strong he must remove the cause of the trouble.
When the Litchfield Mfg. Cos., went into the spreader business a number of years
ago, the machines then on the market were what might be called an AGGREGATION OF
CRIPPLES as they were nearly alwas laid up for repairs and were also very heavy of draft.
The Litchfield Mfg. Cos., began to investigate the reason for this heavy draft and breakage,
and found that it was caused by exc<ssive strain placed on the machinery, on account of
the manure packing and wedging in the box as it reached the distributing cylinder. The
load moving toward the beater wheel, (and this beater wheel pushing it back) caused the
load to expand and press against the sides of the box.
The Litchfield Mfg. Cos., soon discovered that the excessive strain on the machinery
and the extra draft required to move the load towards the beater wheel, and the power
required to dig this load out after it had become packed and pounded into a solid mass BY
THE T ’.VO CONTENDING FORCES, made heavy drafts and caused breakage and repairs
generally. They remembered what the DOCTOR said about “removing the cause” and by
forming a chamber— widered the box just ahead of the beater wheel—where on other ma
chines the packing and wedging takes place, one of the most important spreader ills was
immediately removed. This chamber permits the load to loosen up and enables the beater
wheel t<% easily handle this loosened material.
It can be readily understood how much easier it is to draw the load back with the
conveyor when this load is not packed and wedged against the sides, and also how much
easier it is for the cylinder to dig the material out and distribute it when it is loose, than
when it is packed and wedged as it is with the old-fash oned form of construction.
By actual tests it has been proven repeatedly that this simple invention in connec
tion with other modern features, has cut off 20 per cent of the draft from the horses and
CONSEQUENTLY FULLY THIS AMOUNT OF WEAR AND TEAR AND REP MR
TROUBLES FROM THE MACHINE ITSELF. It was the last straw that broke the
camel’s back, and it is this extra strain multiplied many times on other machines with
straight boxes, that makes those other spreaders nr re or less of a failure in heavy wjrk.
OUR NO-CHOKE spreader box leads ail ether spreaders. To see this machine, is to be
lieve what we are saying. The real results secured from the style of box which permits
the load to loosen and find a chance to move when the beater wheel takes hold of it, are
simply what we can expect from SCIENTIFIC construction. More next week.
