cover in Hyomei this wonderful meth- j
od of treatment. '
Hyomei has performed almost mir-1
teutons results in treating catarrh and :
is today recognized by thousands ot
people as the only advertised remedy
for catarrh that ean be relied upon
to do just what it claims. The com
plete outfit of Hyomei is inexpensive
and consists of en inhaler, a medicine
dropper and a bottle of Hyomei.
Breathe the air of Hyomei through
the little inhaler druegista furnish
with it for a few minutes fonr times
a day and it will help the worst ease
of catarrh. It soothes and heals the
mucous membrane of the air passages,
prevents irritation, and effects com
plete and lasting relief.
In Dallas there are scores of well
known people who have been relieved j
of catarrh by Hyomei. It it does not
help too Conrad Ktafrin will return
the money yoa paid for Hyomei This
is the strongest evidence that ean be
offered as to his faith in this remedy, j
