Catarrh in its various forms is a

nearly everybody snITers from it

Xasal catarrh is a common cause of
headaches, destroys sense of smell
and if neglected reaches the throat,
causing impairment and sometime i
total loss of voice. Bronchial catarrh
leads easily to consumption. Catarrh
of stomach and liver are very serious
and obstinate troubles, xvhile rt is
now generally admitted that catarrh
is the most common of all causes of
All the more serious forms nf ca
tarrh begin with nasal catarrh, the
local symptoms being a profuse dis

eryone xvho has used any of them
knows how useless they are and their
inconvenience is such that very few
have the time or "patience to con

A radical cure of catarrh can only
be obtained from a treatment which
removes the catarrhal taint from the
blood, because no one xvill noxx- dis
pute that catarrh is a constitutional
or blood disease, and local applica

temporarily relieve local symptoms.
A nexv remedy which has- been re
markably successful in curing ca
tarrh is a pleasant tasting tablet

upon the blood and mucous mem

similar cleansing specifies which

taste are dissolved in the mouth and
thus reach the throat, trachae and

druggists everyxvhere under the name
of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
If desired, when there is much
stoppage of the nose, the tablet may
be dissolved in warm xxater and used
as a douche in addition to internal
use, but a douche is not at all neces
