A FEW REASONS
Which Arc Rapidly Inking a New
Catarrh Cure Famous.
Si unit's Cuturrli Tablets, the new
'aturrli cure imH U following lulvun
tngps over other catarrh remedies,
First: These tablets contain no co
caine, morphine or any other Injurious
drug and are us safe and beneficial for
children as ror adults; this Is an Im
portant point when It Is recalled that
many catnrrh remedies do contain these
very objectionable Ingredients,
Next: Helng In tablet form this rem
edy does not deteriorate with age, or
an pxposurp to the air as lliiuld prep
arations Invariably do.
Next: Tlie tablet form not only pre
serves the medicinal properties but it
Is so far more con veil lent to carry and
to use at any time that It Is only n
question or time when the tablet will
entirely supersede liquid medicines us
It has already done In the medical de
partment or the United States army.
Next: No secret Is made of the com
position or Stuart's. Catarrh Tablets:
they contain the active principles of
l-hicalypttis bark, red gum, blond root
and Hydrnstin, all harmless antisep
tics which, however, are death to ca
tarrhal germs wherever round, because
they eliminate them from the blood.
Noxt; You can not cure catarrh by
local applications to the nose und
throat, because these are simply local
symptoms and such treatment can not
possibly reach the real seat of catarrh
al disease which Is In the blood: for
tills reason, Inhalers, douches, sprays
and powders never really cure catarrh,
but simply give temporary relief which
a dose of plain salt and water will do
jusl as well.
Catarrh must be driven out of the
system, out of the blood, by an Internal
remedy because they contain every
sure specific known to modern science
In the antiseptic form or the disease.
Next: The use or Inhalers, and
spraying apparatuses, besides being In
effective and disappointing. Is expen
sive, wlille a complete treatment of
Stuart's Catairh Tablets can be had
nl any drug store In the t'nlted States
and Canada for 50 cents.
