"Dr. A H. Keller's Sylvan Ozone
offered by the Dr. A. H. Keller
Chemical Company as a qure for
Consumption , Asthma , Bronchitis ,
Hay Fever , Catarrh , Coughs ,

genuine specific for these com
plaints , and as such , entitled to
our confidence and that of our
"Close examination into the w
practical results which have been /
had from the use of this remedy
has caused us to endorse it as be-
iuj ? an undoubted cure for the
above ailments , effectual in re
moving the exciting cause in a
number of attacks which had been
of the severest and most tedious
character. Dr. A. H. Keller's Syl
van Ozone permanently restored
health , and in cases which wore
of a milder description its use im
mediately afforded relief. "
