Is a constitutional and not a local disease, and therefore it cannot be cured by local applications. It requires a constitutional remedy like Hood's Snrsap;irilla, which, working through the blood, eradicates the impurity which causes and promotes the disease, and effects a permanent cure. Thousands o£ people testify to the success of Hood's Sarsa- parill.i as ti remedy for catarrh when other preparations had f niled. Hood's Sarsaparilla also builds up the whole system, and makes you feel renewed In health and strength. STOP -AT THE— HOTEL! M, L, MAYHEW, Proprietor. Good Accommodations.

The catarrh was very disagreeable, especially in the winter, causing constant discharge from my nose, ringing noises in my ears, and pains In the back of my head.

Tlii.- first symptom is hoarseness; then the child appears to have taken a cold or a cold may have accompanied the hoarseness from the start. After that a peculiar rough cough is developed, which is followed by the croup. The time to act is when the child first becomes hoarse; a few doses of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will prevent the attack. Even after a rough cough has appeared the disease may be prevented by using this remedy as directed. It has never been known to fail. 25 cent, 50 cent and $1 bottles for sale by Dr. L. A. Sheetz.
