Gentlemen. I have been troubled with Catarrh for several years, bnt hy the use of your remedy it has been greatly relieved. This summer 1 have been entirelyf free from it. I make use of It in my family for colds in the head, and find it an effectual remedy. I can con9deutly recenmend it to all who are similarly afflicted. Very truly yours, October 20, 1874. GEO. W. SHATTUCK. PERSEVERE In the Use of this Remedy until Cured. It contains the Great Healing Ele ments cf Plants in their es sential form as Obtained by Distillation. Catarrh, in its extent and destructive force, stands next to Consumption, and is closely allied to it; ior in certain constitutions tne transitions irom one to the other is only a question of time. It is there fore a singular thing that those afflicted with it should not make it the object oj their lives to rid themselves oi it. A single bottle of any remedy cannot, in the chronic rlage, effect a cure, nor even bring the system under its influence fully. In mauy such cases the bones and cartilage of the nose are eaten away, the organs of hearing, of see ing, and of las'iue, so affeced as to be rendered useless, Ibe uvulva sonlongated and inflamed as to produce a constant and diBtreeeing cough. The re turn to health must necessarily be slow, under the most favorable circumstances, when so seriously af flicted ; but as t'ue evidence of its great value daily comes to hand, we become more and more satisfied that there does not exist a case of Catarrh that can not be cured by a judicious and persistent use of Santoed's Radical Ccbk pok Catabku The re lief in every case obtained from the first dose is an indication of what it will do when the system is brought constitutionally under its influence. Samfobd's Radical Ccbe is sold by all whole sale and retail druggists throughout the United States. Price f 1. Millwrights ! Contractors & Builders ALL STYLES. CHEAPEST PLAO E In the City.
