INVITE A TEST
Demaray Ask Ce.te.rrh Sufferer
to try Hyomel on Hi Guarantee
Demaray invites all who Buffer from
any form of catarrhal troubles to get
a Hyomel outfit from them with the
absolute guarantee that if it does not
give perfeot satisfaction, the money
will be refunded upon request.
There is no other treatment for
catarrh' that in any way resembles
Hyomel, none that vlves such quick
curative results and lsBtiug satisfac
tion, no medicine that can take its
plaoe, none that can be sold on a
guarantee like this, to reload the
money unless it cures. '
Catarrh ia a gerra disease and can
be onred only by breathing Hyomel,
so that the most remote - air cells In
th nose, throat and lunge a re' re ached
by its autiseptio beating powers. In
this way all catarrhal germs are
killed, the irritated mucous mem
brane ia healed and catarrh ia driven
from th system. This wonderful
aaioatsd air treatment does not drug
and derange the stomach, bat is
breathed through a little pocket in
haler that gees with every dollar outfit
The usual way in which Demaray
sells Hyomel attests his confidence la
the remedy. 8 14 St
In the earlier perloda of history the
people bad no other method of making
bread than by roasting corn and beat
ing it In mortars, then wetting It and
forming the mass into a coarse cake.
One pint of cold water, to which bas
been added the beaten white of one
egg, will be found useful In cleaning
gold picture frames. Apply the mix
ture with a sponge, then ivfe with a
soft flannel. Take a second cloth per
fectly dry and rub the frames lightly.
Cold water should never be used in
cleaning the ears; firstly. It Is not
much of a cleanser, und, secondly, It
tends to harden the wax and tempo
rary deufuess is apt to ensue.
That the American people love to be
humbugged is false. That they are
