GOOD REASON FOR IT,
Ths Success and I'npnlartty of the
Haw Catarrh cars.
Tha rsmark ibls success and popularity
of th* naw cwlarrh our- Htiuirt’s Catarrh
Tablet*, la largely becausa W not only
curs* catarrh, but because catarrh suf
ferer# who use the** tablet# know what
thay are taking Into their systems; no
secret I* made of what thay contain.
They arc composed of Hydraatln, blood
root, guaiacol and red gum. on pleasant
to th* last# ack being dissolved in the
mouth they takd Immediate effect upon
the mucous lining of the throat, nasal
passage* and the whole respiratory tract.
The cures 'iat Btuart's Catarrh Tablet*
have accomplished 111 old chronic cases
are little abort of remarkable, ond the
advantage of knowing Jual wliai you are
taking into your iryatem It of paramount
Importance when t Is remembered that
Ihe cocaine or morphine habit haa been
frequently contracted a* the result of
using soct—t catarrh temrdles. as so
many of them are well known to contain
them Injurious drug*.
Htuart's Catarrh Tablet* meet with the
approval and cordial support of physi
cians because their antiseptic character
render* them perfectly safe for the
general public to use and their composi
tion make* them a common sense cure
for all forms of catarrhal trouble
With twwrly all advertised catarrh cure*
p I* „ ryatter of guess work aa *o what
you are taking Into the stomach, a* th*
proprietors, while making all sorts of
claim* as lo what their medicine* will
dc are v.-sy careful to keep It a close
M cr*t ** to what they really contain.
This Is one reason why Htuart's Catarrh
Tablets have been so widely recommend
ed because they are not only plea earn
find convenient to take, but the patient
also know* h l* not putting Into hi,
stomach snythln* oftan injurious ehgrae
"rh'se tablets are sold by druggist*
everywhere In the United Btatee and Can
ada at W cents for complete treatment
snd probably there l no better remedy
ever devised for the permanent cure of
catarrh wheloer located In the head,
