How Diphtheria is Contracted.
One often hears the expressoin,
"My child caught a severe cold which
developed into diphtheria," when the
truth was that the cold had simply
left the little one particularly suscep
tible to the wandering diphthera
germ. If your child has a cold when
diphtheria is prevalent you should
take him out of school and keep him
off the street until fully recovered,
as there is a hundred times more ^an
ger of his taking diphtheria when he
has a cold. When Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is given it quickly
cures the cold and lessens the dan
ger of diphtheria or any other germ
disease being contracted.
