There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be in curable. For a (Treat 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 consti tutional cure on the market. It is taken inter nally. It acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for cir culars and testimonials. Address: F. J. CHENEY & CO.. Toledo. Ohio. Sold by DruRKlsts, 75c.
