So you will readily under stand that the cure of debility de pends entirely on the cleaning out of the catarrhal parasites. No de bility cure will ever cure you as long as you have catarrh. Catarrh is the cause. Debility is the result. Then get rid of the cause. No remedy will every cure you but a catarrh remedy, and no other remedy will do it but Rexall Mucu-Tone. We make this statement because we know what Mucu-Tone is and what it will do and doesn't it stand to reason that a remedy designed for one partic ular purpose as Mucu-Tone for catarrh only is going to give re sults a hundred times better than a cure-all that aims at every disease in the dictionary? 1 hen we back up our statement with the broad and liberal guarantee that if Mucu-Tone fails to give you any relief we refund the price you pay us. We can attord to make this state ment because we know Mucu-Tone will positively cure you,' since Mucu Tone acts entirely different to any other remedy we know of and we think weknow them all. Mucu-Tone acts in a scientific way by first of all destroying the deadly catarrhal germs ridding the system of every trace. Then as the very name Mucu-Tone implies, it tones up the mucous tissues, the tissues on which the catarrhal parasites live. Then there a chance to get well. No other remedy but Rexall Mucu-Tone will do it. Get Mucu-Tone. It destroys every trace of the germs of catarrh. It heals and soothes the tissues. It tones up the entire system. We have a large trial size for fifty cents that we guarantee to give results. We want you to try a bottle on our per sonal recommendation. on business last week. D. R.
