Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
It soothes and heals the inflamed nir passages, stops tho tick
ling in the throat, nnd by its tonic effect enables you to throw
off the disease. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is quite different
from the ordinary cough medicine, for it not only soothes but
also heals, so that the effected parts are restored to a healthy
condition nnd the danger of a future attack is removed. I firmly
believe that it is the best and most reliable preparation ever pro
duced for coughs and colds."
