Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
No one who is acquainted with its
good qualities can be surprised at the
g reat popularity of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It not only cures
colds andl grip effectually3 and pernma
nently, but prlevenits these dliseases
from resulting in p)neumnonia. It is also
a certain cure for croup. Whooping
cough is not dlangerous when this rem
edly is given. It contains no opium or
otheir harmful substance andl 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
consideration it is not surprising that
ieopile in foreign lands, as we'(ll as at
lome, esteem this rer.mdy very highly
and very few are willing to take any
other a fter' having on ce unsedI it. For
