he Yours very truly, W. M. Lord.
rh It will be noticed that the Governor
Ily says he has not had occasion to use Pe
ti- ru-na for other ailments. The reason for
this is, most other ailments begin with a
th cold. Using Pe-ru-na to promptly cure
a- colds,he protects his family againstoth
n- er ailments. This is exactly what every
o- other family in the United States should
le do. Keep Pe-ru-na in the house. Use it
a, for coughs, colds, la grippe, and other
-f climatic affections of winter, and there
a- will be no other ailments in the house.
Id Such families should provide themselves
a- with a copy of Dr. Hartman's free book,
entitled "Winter Catarrh." Address
it Dr. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio.
