Editor Mathers Journal:
I saw in a recent issue of The
Journal an article by Mr. S. G
Miller concerning the roads and
last week several more communi?
cation* of the same natare.
What they said is all right but
I think it lies yery much with the
citizens to help keep the road"? as
well a? with the road workers
The Road Overseer vt ry often
has ditches dug and then the citi?
zens will drive across it and fill it
up and if he says anything to
them they become offended.
I think that every man that has
a front on the road ought to keep
the bushe3 cut around the ditches
so that thp vyater can more read
ilv run in and the sun drv the
road. I have a front on the road
about a rqile of jt, and, I keep the
bushes cut and, the ditch in good
shape and it ha? not cost the
county $5 in ten years as Mr
George Mason who knows, can
If this piece can be kept up at
,-1 small a cost, lots of it could be
..ikea care of by people who
<ve fronts on the road. But
. m'y of lhem want the county to
\\ m 1 cut off the bushes too.
I have one of the largest ditches
on any road in the county an?l it
i has not cost the county a cent. 1
I ha<l it cut and clean it out every
three yea?s.

Pe-ru-na and Ka-tar-no
I have received
a letter from a
young lady, who
asks me: ** I e
the old Pe-ru-na
(Ka-tcr-no) bet?
ter than the re?
vised Pe-ru-na?"
Either medi?
cine has its
place. One Is
adapted for one
condition, anoth?
er for another.
Ka-tar-no ia a
better remedy
for some condi?
tions than th?
S. B. Hartman. M. O. reviaed Pe-ru
na. On t h ?
other hand, the revised Pe-ru-na
is a better remedy for aome conditions
than Ka-tar-no. They are both In?
tended aa catarrh remediea. They have
both done a great work in relieving
?catarrh, chronic and acute. Many
hundreds of cases of chronic catarrh
have recovered while taking" Ka-tar-nc
and the same is true of the revised Pe
ru-na during the last six years since
Its revision.
There is a difference, however. In
the two remedies. Whenever catarrh
is associated with constipation then
the revised Pe-ru-na is the bent. In?
deed, thia is exactly why the revision
was made, to meet such cases. But
where no laxative is needed, where the
bowels are regular or inclined to be
loose, then the old Pe-ru-na (Ka-tar?
no) Is the better remedy.
The revised Pe-ru-na is for sale at
ail drug" stores. Those "wishing to ob?
tain Ka-tar-no, address The Ka-tar-no
