Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
No one who is acquainted with its
good qualities can be surprised at the
great popularity of Chamberlain'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
a certain cure lor croup. Whooping
cough is not dangerous when this rem
edy is given. It contains no opium or
other harmfnl substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adult. It is also pleasant to take.
When all of these facts are taken into
consileration it is not surprising that
people in f'oreigno lands, as well as at
home, esteem this remedy very highly
and very few are willing to take any
Ot Lr after having once used it. For
