Not in the fact that she !,o*> raised a family of eight Is her story remarkable. Thousands of families are larger. The history of the Koch family Is unique In that the mother, with all her loving care, pinned her faith to a simple home remedy and never had a doctor for her children. Here Is what she says: "Peruna has done my children good. I have a family of eight and never had a doctor, only your medicine. We all think Peruna a splendid tonic." So far as we have learned, Pe runa is the only known remedy for which such a wonderful claim can be made. Like Mrs. Koch, there are thousands upon thousands of mothers who place their entire de pendence upon Peruna. That Peruna has merited this confidence is attested by the words Misunderstanding.

Last week we shipped the last of our back orders, and retail druggists, therefore, are no longer requested to order in small quantities only.

The thanks of the American public —retail, wholesale and manufacturing —for what they accomplished during the recent influenza epidemic. The war caused a shortage of physicians— nurses were almost impossible to ob tain—the demand on the drug trade was unexpected and overwhelming, and to this demand they responded nobly.
