stated the following:
"Tho first tlimeulty I met with in tho
proper treatment of nervous prostra
tion Is to get my patients ild of tho
many nervines, stimulants and seda
tives to which they have usually be
como accustomed beforo consulting me.
It would he dlrtlcult to over-estimate
tho damage theso drugs do In such
cases. Bromides, valorlnates, chloral,
opium n every form, caffeine, cocaine,
and ninny others uro nil alike of great
Injury and of no possible good.
"To get all these and many other
tdmllar remedies from the patient and
Peruna In their stead Is the first thing
to bo accomplished. Shortly nftor Po

There nro no fnllurrs whTO theso di

Improvement Is prompt and the pa

euro will follow ti persistent use of It.
"Peruna contains no phosphorus,
strychnine, or quinine to temporarily
exalt the nervous system, but acts per

action of any bodily function during
its use."
