I*1 Tfe# mmfk of MewmbeVi la temperate reflew espeetol^, require of thf* human body a very radical adjustment to climatic conditions. The hoi weather has passed, and cold weather has taken its place. That the CIRCU«? LATI0N OF BLOOD IN THE SKIN SHOULD BE FREE and active is matter of common knowledge. Ana in order that the body may be protected against the lowering temperature a vigorous circulation of blood in the ski*' must be maintained. :J It is not so generally known, however, that the inside of the body als*' needs protection. THE MUCOUS MEMBRANES OF THE BODY, that lin# every passage and cavity and duct, also suffer from the change from hot tt K cold weather. A medicinal compound that gently tones up these mucous membrane^' enabling them to ADJUST TO WINTER WEATHER, is not only valuably to a great multitude of people, but to another multitude is absolutely twwTitial to health. v Whether Peruna is a medicinal compound that meets these requirements can be judged by a hasty glance at some of its principal ingredients. Take, for instance, hydrastis canadensis, which is an ingredient of Perun% The United States Dispensatory says of this herbal remedy, that it is employe# as a cure for DEPRAVED MUCOUS MEMBRANES, not only of the nose an head, but also of the stomach and intestines, as well as other internal organ Hydrastis canadensis, ordinarily known as golden seal, is thus very clearl classed by the highest authorities as a valuable remedy wherever the muco' membranes of the body are in need of a little medicinal help. Cedron is also one of the principal ingredients of Peruna. It is recognised by the United States Dispensatory and all leading works on materia medica, ai a TONIC OF THE GREATEST VALUE It is also an anti periodic and anti malarial remedy, and is therefore frequently used as a SUBSTITUTE FOlt QUININE It is a remedy of great merit, somewhat overlooked by the medi* cal profession of late, but its undoubted tonic qualities are sure to reinstate thi^F remedy in its original high-class rank as a safe and efficient tonic ant appetiser. Another ingredient of Permna which is of manifest benefit is cubebv Bartholow, in his excellent work on therapeutics, states that cubebs FROfe MOTES THE APPETITE, ASSISTS DIGESTION, and increases the circular tion of the blood. He also gees on to recommend it for catarrh not only of thpi head and pharynx, but also of the stomach, as well as the other internal organA LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, IS COLLINSONIA CANADENSIS. Thi* remedy, for many years has enjoyed a great reputation in southern state* as panacea for many diseases such as dropsy, indigestion, cramp, sick headach and the like. Dr Scudder, a writer of great fame, also recommends this her bad remedy for chronic diseases of the lungs and heart. These are some of the principal ingredients of Peruna compounded into single remedy by skillful and experienced pharmacists. The compound hat been so devised that each remedy retains its full therapeutic value, one assist* ing the other in their beneficial action upon the human system, MAKING OK PERUNA A VERY EFFICIENT AND VALUABLE REMEDY People who pass through the month of November saiely and find thent* selves acclimated to winter weather, generally pass through the remainder of the cold season without any serious difficulty. But NOVEMBER IS A CRITI* CAL MONTH. The adjustment of a large multitude of people tail# to meal the exigencies of approaching winter. No safer or more appropriate remedy than Peruna could be found. according to the directions on the bottle, not only would catarrhal ailments bt warded off but catarrh already aoquired be corrected.
