Page/Column: Page 3, Column 5

LA GRIPPE is epidemic catarrh. It spares no class or nationality. The cultured and the ignorant, the aristocrat and the pauper, the masses and the classes are alike subject to la grippe. None are exemptall are liable.
Have you the grip? Or, rather, has the grip got you? Grip is well named. The original French term, la grippe, has been shortened by the busy American to read grip. Without intending to do so a new word has been coined that exactly describes the case. As if some hideous giant with awful Grip had clutched us in its fatal clasp. Men, women, children, whole towns and cities are caught in the baneful grip of a terrible monster.
Pe-ru-na for Grip.
Mrs. Theophile Schmitt, wife of the Ex-Secretary of the German Consulate, writes the following letter from 3417 Wabash Avenue, Chicago, Ill.:
I suffered this winter with a severe attack of la grippe. After using three bottles of Peruna In found the grip had disappeared.Mrs. T. Schmitt.
