J. R, BLOCKER,
Some Seasonable Advice.
It may be a piece of superflu
ous advice to urge people at this
season of the year to lay iu a sup
ply of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It is almost sure to be
needed before wiuter is over, and
much more prompt and satiifac
tory results are obtained when
takeu as soon as a cold is contract
ed and before it has become set
tied in the system, which can only
be done by keeping the remedy at
band. TbiB remedy if so widely
known and so altogether good that
no one should hesitate abaut buy
iuy it in preference to any other.
It is for sale by all druggist and
