The Now Discovery for Catarrh
Seems to Possess Remarkable
A new ralairh cure has lecetitty ap
peared which so far as tested lias been
remarkably successful In curing nil
forms of catarrh, whether in tho head,
throat, bronchial lubes, or In stomach
The remedy Is In tablet form, pleas
ant and convenient to take and no
special secrecy is maintained as to
what it contains, the tnblot being a
sclentlllu combination of Gualacol, Kti
calyptol, Sangulnarla, Hydrastln and
similar valuable, and harmless nntl
f.optlcs. The safe find effective catarrh euro
may bo found nt any ding store under
name of Stuart'a Catarrh Tabtets.
Whether the catarrh Is located In
tho noio, throat, bronchial tubes or
Hlonmcli, the (ablets seem to net with
equal success, removing the stuffy
feeling in head and niwo, clearing the
mucous membrane of tin oat and tra
chea from cnlmi'liul secretions, which
cause the tickling, courjhlng, hawking
and gagging so annoying to every ca
XitMil caturih generally leads to ul
ceration. In some eases to such an
extent as to destiny the nose entirely
and in many old cases of caturrh the
bones of the head become diseased,
Xasal caturrh gradually extends to tho
tluont and bronchial lubes and vety
often tti I lie stomach, causing that very
obstinate double, catarrh of the stom
ncli. Catarrh Is n systemic poison. Inher
ent in the blood, and local washes,
douche!-, salves, iulmtcib and sprays
cm have no effect on tho real cans- of
the disease. An Internal remedy which
acts upon the blood is the only rational
Irentincu and Stuart's Caturih Tablets
Is the safest of all Internal remedies,
us well u the moat convenient and sat
isfactory from a medical standpoint.
Dr. Kalou recently stated that ho had
.successfully used Stuart's Cutairh
Tablets in old chronic cases, oven
wheie ulci'intion had extended so fai
ns to destroy the .septum of the nohc.
He says, "I am pleasantly surprised
almost every day by the excellent le
sults from Stuurt'n Catarrh Tablets. It
Is lemnrkiibte how effectually they re
move the excessive secretion and bring
about a healthy condition of the mu
cous membranes of the nose nnd stom
ach." All druggislH sell complete treat
ment of tho tablets at t"0 cents, and

causes of tlie vaiious forms of ca
tarrh wi'l be moiled free by addressing
