A cold generally attacks the weak
est part, affecting the eyes and ears
in some and producing nasal catarrh
and throat troubles in others. A cold
is due to an inflammation of the mem
brane lining the air passages, and
may be promptly cured with a little
Ely's Cream Balm, which immediate
ly relieves the inflammation and all
the distressing symptoms, such as
sneezing, coughing, running at the
nose and eyes, hoarseness, sore throat
fever and headache. One reason why
this pure, antiseptic Balm acts so
quickly is because it is applied direct
ly to the tender, sore surfaces.
Even in severe .chronic cases of ca
tarrh, Ely's Cream Balm never fails
to quickly and effectually check the
poisonous discharges which clogs the
head and throat, causing the disgust
ing hawking, spitting and blowing of
the nose. This remedy not only driv
es out the disease, but heals and
strenthens the weakened membranes,
thus ending catarrh.
Catarrh is a filthy, disgusting dis
ease. Don't put up with it another
day. Get a 5 0 cent bottlv of Ely's
see how quickly you will be relieved.
It is perfectly harmless.Adv.
