There Is more Catarrh In this sec
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced It a local disease
and prescribed local remedies, and by
constantly falling to cure with local
treatment, pronounced It Incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured
by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio,
Is the only constitutional cure on the
market. It Is taken lntornnlly In
doses from 10 drops to a tenspoonful.
It acts directly on tho blood nnd muc
ous surfaces of the system. They
offer one hundred dollars for auy case
it falls to cure. Send for clrculnrs
and testimonials.
