Cured of Catarrh of the. Stomach
CONGRESSMAN R. W. WILCOX,
Delegate to Congress from Hawaii
Hon. Robert W. Wilcox, Delegate to
Congress from Hawaii and the Sand
wich Islands, in a recent letter from
Washington, D. C, writes:

R. W. Wilcox.
All over this country are hundreds
of people who are suffering from
catarrh of the stomach who are wast
ing precious time, and enduring need
less suffering. The remedies they try
only temporarily palliate the distress,
but never effect a cure. Remedies for
dyspepsia have multiplied so rapidly
that they are becoming as numerous
as the leaves of the forest, and yet
dyspepsia continues to flourish in
spite of them all. This is due to the
fact that the cause of dyspepsia is not
recognized as catarrff.
If there is a remedy in the whole
range of medicinal preparations that
is in every particular adapted to dys

remedy is well nigh invincible in these

single case of atonic dyspepsia which
has not either been greatly benefited
or cured by Teruna."
No one suffering with catarrh, of the
stomach or dyspepsia, however slight,
can be well or happy. It is the cause of
so many distressing symptoms that it
is a most dreaded disease. Peruna acts
immediately on the seat of thetrouble,
