A SPANISH COUNT CURED OF LA GRIPPE.
Count Resnndo do Ovles was a Carlist exile. The signature o his uncle,
Louis Tie OviGK, is found with that of John Quincy Adams ceding Florida to the
Uni'.od tit: lea in u tw.ty witb Spain. The Count is forty-Bix years of age, an exile
from Oriotto, lituatoi iu the nurthern part of Spain, and has been exiled since 1876;
he Is wealthy, and has traveled and studied the customs, habits and languages of
twenty-five different nations
In a recent letter to The Peruna Medicine Co., of Columbus, Ohio, the Count
gives his endorsement to thslr great catarrh remedy, Peruna, In the following

The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio:
Gentlemen " Lost winter my secretary had a severe attack of
la grippe which was cured effectually by the use of four bottles of
Peruna, so when I contracted the same unpleasant sickness last fall
I at once sent for a bottle. It truly worked wonders, and removed
the sickening and sore feeling 1 had within a few days. I would not
be without It now for any money, and when 1 go away I carry
Peruna as a valuable perquisite to my traveling outfit." JULIAN
SEGUNDO, CONDB DE OVIES.

M grippe again. It resembles some
' what In the beginning a severe
cold. A chill or cold spell U followed by
aching bones, sore throat, headache,
cough, and general weakness. Its course
may be quite slight or severe, bat in
either case it nearly always leaves one
in a miserable condition.
Unless Peruna is taken It will be
weeks or months before a parson re
gains his usual health. If ths vlotim is
fortunate enough to begin the use of
Peruna at the commencement of the
attack the course of the grip is much
shortened, and the system is left In a
People who have had la grippe, but
are still suffering from the after-effects,
should not neglect to take Peruna, as it
will promptly restore them to health.
Henry Distin, the inventor and maker
of all the band instruments of the Henry
Distin Manufacturing Co., writes the
1441 South Ninth
" I had a bad at
tack of la grippe
more than three
which left me
with catarrh, and
several of my
me to try Peruna.
I began with a bottle the first week in
March and it certainly did me a great
deal of good. I was so well satisfied
that I purchased another bottle and fol
lowed the directions, and can say that it
has cured mo." Henry Distin.
A large per cent of those who are
afflicted with this epidemic, instead of
getting well as they ought to, will have
chronic catarrh as the result. This is
almost invariably the case unless Pe
runa" is taken as soon as possible after
the grip begins.
Every one who lies observed the effdet
of Peruna during the last three epidem
ics of la grippe positively knows that
this remedy will cure it permanently.
The fact is, however, that a great mul
titude of people will not take Peruna,
and, a foundation for chronic catarrh
will be laid.
Even in cases where chronic catarrh
has affected the lungs, and the early
stages of catarrhal consumption have
been developed, Peruna can be relied
upon as a prompt and lasting cure. La
grippe and catarrh are at present the
two great enemies of life in the land.
Peruna is a cure for either.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case and ho will
be pleased to give you his valuable ad
vice gratis. " r

pleasure for the lovers of good clean

them a chance to see some of the ama
teur teams of the state come to our city
and croBS bats with with our own boys,
and there is no question but what our
boys will be able to take care of our in
terests. Our team should be libeially sur port

strated that our home team was compos
ed of gentlemen and first class players
always playing clean ball.
The promotorB this year have secured
moBt of last years players and have the
advantage of a ground in the edge of town
which should more then double the at -tendance
of last year, and thia being the
case, they will be able to bring all the
best teams of the coast this season. But
a successful season cannot be carried on
unless the team has the Eupport and
patronage of the city, first last and
all times, as it costs money to bring
good teams here and keep eood playerc
at home. This year Oregon City will
have one of the best players in the state.

the attraction for Tuesday night. It
