Some Seasonable, Advice.
It may be a piece of suporlluous ad
vice to urge people nt this season of tho
year to lay in a supply of Chamberlain's

needed before winter is over, and much
moro prompt and satisfactory results aro
obtained when takon as soon as a cold is
contracted and boforo it has beoomo set
tled in the system, which can only be
donn by keeping thu remedy at band.
This remedy is so widely known and so
altogether good that no ono should hesi
