Twenty-five Years ?Constant Use Without
The first indication of croup is
hoarseness, and in e child subject to
that disease it may be taken as a sure
sign of the approach of an attack. Fol?
lowing this hoarseness is a peculiar
j rcngh congh. If Chamberlain's Cough
i Remedy is given as soon as the child
! becomes hoarse, or even after the
i oroupy congh appears, it will prevent
! the attack. It is used in many thousands
of homes in this broad land and never
disappoints the anxious mothers. We
have yet to learn of a single instance
in which it has not proved effectual.
