Minnie, but who is now married and
living in Oregon. Her husband was

fast as it could be laid. The agent of
the Manitoba at Wahpeton, Mr. St.
Johns, also refused to take the cash

carrier, and turn over to the former
road freight duly consigned and to
which the full amount of the carrying
charges had been tendered. General
Allen as United States marshal also
took a hand in the fracas and went to

ties of the Uryted States.

Dr. Hartman receives many letters
from Catholic Sisters all over the United
States. A recommend recently n»*
ceived from a Catholic institution in th»
Southwest reads as follows:
A Prominent Mother Superior SajWt
I can testify from experience to th#
efficiency of Peruna as one of the very
best medicines, and it gives me pleasure
to add my praise to that of thousands
who have used it. For years I suffered
with catarrh of the stomach, all reme
dies proving valueless for relief. Last
spring I went to Colorado, hoping to be
benefited by a change of climate
while there a friend advised me to try
Peruna. After using two bottles I found
myself very much improved. The re»
mains of my old disease being now so
slight, I consider myself cured, yet for
a while I intend to continue the use of
Peruna. I am now treating another
patient with your medicine. She haa
been sick with malaria and troubled
with leucorrheea. I have not a doubt
that a cure will be speedily effected."
These are samples of letters received
hy Dr. Hartman from the various
orders of Catholic Sistara throughout
the United States.
