Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
No one who is acquainted wvith its
goodl qualities can be suir prised at the
great p)opularity of Chaimberlain 's
Cough Remedy. It not only cures
colds and grip effectually and perma
nently, but prevents these diseases
from resulting in pneumonia. It is also 1
a certain cure for croup. Whooping
cough is not dangerous wvhen this rem- 1
edy is given. It contains no opium or
other harmful substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adutlt. It is also pleasant to take.
When all of these facts are taken nt
consideLration it is not surprising that
people in foreign lands, as wvell as at
h ome , esteem this remedy very highly
andl very few are wvilling to take any
other after having once usedl it. For.:
