An Attack of Pneumonia Warded Off.
"Some time ago my daughter caught
a severe cold. She complained of pains
in her chest and had a bad cough. I
gave her Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy according to directions and in two
days she was well and able to go to
school. I have used this remedy In
my family for the past seven years
and have never known it to fail," says
James Prendergast, merchant, Annot
to Bay. Jamaica. West India Islands.
The pains In the chest indicated an
approaching attack of pneumonia,
which in this instance was undoubted
ly warded off by Chamberlain's Cougn
Remedy. It counteracts any tendency
of a cold toward pneumonia. Sold by
