DECLARES PE-RU-NA THE GREATEST
REMEDY EVER PREPARED.
Pe-ru-na attained great popular
ity among the officers of the army
during the late war with Spain.
A' great many'letters were received
from field and hospital corps , indi
cating that this popular climatic
remedy has become well nigh in
dispensable to them. Pe-ru-na is
not only a national remedy , but
has proven itself a national bless
Major Algernon A. Mabson , of
the Tenth Volunteer Regiment
stationed at MacouGa. , in a recent
letter to Dr. Hartman , from Wash
ington , D. C. , says : "I think there
is no better medicine on earth than
your Pe-ru-ua for catarrh. It has
surely cured me. It would take
volume to tell you all the good it
bas done for me. Pe-rn-na is tl e
greatest remedy ever prepared , and
. think I have tried theui all. "
Chronic catarrh is often u very
tubborn disease to cure. Some
cases will resist the best of treat
ment during the winter months.
To catch cold during the treatment
of chronic catarrh is to delay the
ure if not entirely defeat it. The
spring months are far more favor
able for the treatment of this dis
ease. Two weeks treatment now
may prove to be of more value
; hau two months' treatment dur
ing the winter season. No one
should neglect this opportunity.
