Campaign Against Them and Flies
Started In the South.
New Orleans, La., April II.?The
entire South has enacted uniform
laws against the mosquito and the
house fly as undesirable pests, who,
under no circumstances, will be per
mitted to survive inhabited commu
nities. Health officers have not for
gotten the lesson taught them In
1905 when yellow fever prevailed.
So, all over the South, In the vil
lages as well as in the cities, health
officers are opening an early cam
paign against the disseminators of
deadly diseases, the mosquito and
the house fly. While the mosquito
spreads yellow fever the house fly
disseminates malaria, typhoid fever
and several other deadly diseases.
Under the direction of Dr. J. S.
White, Marine Hospital surgeon, who
fought out yellow fever In 1905, a
regular set of laws and precautions
have been devised. These are the
same in all Southern cities and
So dowi Catarrh, Croup, Hay Fever
and Bronchitis.
Hyomel is a confidence creator.
The first time you breathe in this
powerful yet soothing, antiseptic air,
you will know that It has marvelous
curative virtue. There is nothing dis
agreable about Hyomel. It Is a very
pleasant and prompt remedy for cat
arrh, colds, asthma, croup, bronchitis, ,
If your head is so stuffed with mu
cus that you cannot breathe a par
ticle of air through your nostrils,
Hyomel will open them up and give
relief in five minutes.
Why will sensible people suffer
longer, why will they wheeze and
hawk and spit and smother, when
Mood Bros., will guarantee Hyomel to
Cure or money back. $1.00 is all

"I have used Hyomei for hay fever,
and can pronounce it the best relief
for this trouble that 1 ever tried or
heard of. I have had this malady
for years, and have doctored and us

far ahead of any of the others, and
has my hearty endorsement."?Mrs.
