Catarrh is the short route to consumption, and the importance of early and judicious treatment of
catarrh, whether located in tlie head, throat or bronchial tubes, cannot be too strongly emphasized.
I he list ol catarrh cures is as long as the moral law and the
forms in which they are administered, numerous and confusing,
from sprays, inhalers, washes, ointments, and salves to powders,
liquids and tablets.
The tablet form is undoubtedly the most convenient and
most effective, but with nearly all advertised catarrh remedies it
is almost entirely a matter of guesswork as to what you are taking
into your system', as the proprietors, while making all sorts of claims
as to what their medicines will do, always keep it a close secret as
to what they are.
The success and popularity of the new catarrh cure, Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets, is largely because it not only cures catarrh but be
cause catarrh sufferers, who used these tablets know what they are
taking into their systems. Stuart's Catarrh Tabltts being composed
of Eucalyptus Gum, Bioodroot and similar valuable and antiseptic
ingredients, and are pleasant to the taste and being dissolved in the
mouth they take immediate effect upon the mucous lining of the
throat, nasal passages and whole respiratory tract.
The cures that Stuart's Catarrh Tablets have accomplished
in old chronic cases of catarrh are little short of remarkable, and
the advantage of knowing what you are putting into your stoinach
is of paramount importance when it is remembered that the cocaine
or morphine habit has been frequently contracted as the result of
using secret catarrh remedies.
