casion. At the reception, In rospoesn to
an address by a colored delegation, Gov

of wise suggestions and timely advice.
At the banquet, President Ackorman,
on behulf of his party, made a brief

much cleverness, be Injected a largo

In our style ot climate, with Its sudden
changes ot temperature rain, wind and

deaths resulting directly from this cause.

prevent serious sickness, a large doctor's
bill, and perhaps death, by the nse of

sumption, Hemorrhages, Pneumonia,
Severe Coughs, Croup, or any disease ol
the Throat or Lungs, its success Is simply
wonderful, as your druggist will tell you
