Our talks have been '"heart-to-heart."
Every word we have prmt-d has been
written in absolute earnestness and sin
cerity, and judging from what our cus
tomers tell us, we have not been talking
in vain. We are convinced that our
frankness has been appreciated, and that
our suggestions have been welcomed
which naturally encourages us to con

come, we want to tall: about that big

Ths Ingredients cf fucu-Tono
The chief ingredients of Miicn-Tonr are Gen
tian, Cubcbs, Cascars Sagrada, Glycerine, and
Gentian is recognized -in medicine as one of the
greatest tonics ever discovered. It is the founda
tion on which 'Muru-Tone is huiit. Gentian com
bines in high degree the bmic powers of all the
known "bitters." with none of the disadvantages
applying to them.
Cubcbs have long been rccotnized as n spe
cific in the treatment of all catarrhal conditions.
Its action is prompt and its benefits almost inva
riable' In whatever part of the lidy the inflamed -or
diseased condition of the mucous membrane
exists, the use of Cubcbs has been recommended
by the best physicians for many generations. . . .
Cascara Sagrada is especially introduced, for:;,
its necessary laxative properties. rr-" :
The combination of these with Glycerine and
Sarsaparilla makes Mucu-Tone a remedy that at-i
tacks catarrh from every point, gradually restores
and rebuilds the diseased tissues to their former
health and strength, promotes digestion and cre
ates a normal appetite. Large trial bottle, 50c.
