Some Seasonable Advice.
It may be a piece of superflu

season of the year to lay in a sup

Remedy, lt is almost sure to be
needed before winter is over, and
much more prompt and satisfac
tory results are obtained when
taken as soon as a cold is contract
?e and before it has become set
tled in the system, which can only
be done by keeping the remedy al
band. This remedy ie so widely
known and so altogether good that
no one should hesitate abaut buy

A Judicious Inquiry.
A well known traveling man
who visits the drug trade says he
has often heard druggists inquire
of customers who asRed for a
cough medicine, whether it was
wanted for a child or for an adult,
and if for a child they almost in
variably recommend Chamber*

son for this is that they know
there is no danger from it and
that it always cures. There is not
the least danger in giving it, aud
for coughs, colds and croup it is
unsurpassed. For sale by all
