Now, what is the grip?
Can it be avoided or prevented?
And can it be cured?
Grip is characterized by a continued
fever, by a tendency to inflammation
kof the membranes of the digestive and
often the respiratory tracts, by pain in
the muscles, and by debility.
The grip in individual -cases varies
from a slight indisposition to severe
forms i with grave symptoms these
variations deoendiner whollv upon the
health, age' temperament or nervous
condition of the person. Those pre
disposed to rheumatism suffer great
pain in the muscles ; persons of nervous
temperament become low spirited.
often have hysteria, and, if not closely
watched, have been known to commit
suicide. Several cases of this sort have
been reported this month in the news
papers. Headache Is a constant symp
tom. The bowels are generally con
stipated. Whatever form the disease
takes there is invariably extreme pros
tration. The danger to persons in
previous healthful condition is slight
It has been absolutely proven that
there is one certain -preventive of seri
ous cases of grip; and thit there is one
remedy for persons suff eVing with it,
or beginning to be convalescent from
its attack.

it has been prescribed b intelligent

A person will continue to suffer from
