way and writes:
"When our babv had a evere
cold, ne applied Vick'a VapoRub R
on n tnroat and cneit and the
next morning he wai well. I alio
applied it on a little child with
the croup and in fifteen minutes
he wis eatier."
You can use VapoRub as
freely and as often as you wish
with perfect safety. It relieves
by ahsorption thru the skin
and by inhalation as a vapor.

should be one which will produce a
