The read-rs of this paper will b<-
pleased to know that there i* at j
least one dreaded disease that sci
ence has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that is Catarrh. Hall's
Catarrh Cure ia the only sure cure
known to the medical fraternity.
Catarrh being a constitutional dis-
ease needs a constitutional treat-
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken
internally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the
*ystem, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giv-
ing the patient strength by build*
ing up the constitution and assist-
ing nature in its work.
The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that
they ofier One Hundred Dollars for
any case tliat it fails to cure. Send
for list of testimonials.
