There is more catarrh in this
section of the conntry than all
other diseases put together, and
until the last few years was sup
posed to be incurable. For a
great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and
by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it
incurable. Science has proven
catarrh to be a constitutional
disease, and therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured, by
F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo,
Ohio, is the only constitutional
cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses from 10 drops
to a teaspoonful. It acts directly
on the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system. They offer
one hundred dollars for any case
it fails to cure Send for circu
lars and testimonials.
