There is no better medicine for the
babies than Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, Its pleasant taste and prompt
and effectual cures make it a favorite
with mothers and small children. It
quickly cures their coughs and colds,
preventing pneumonia or other serious
consequences. It also cures croup and
has been used in tens of thousands of
cases without a single failure so far an
we have been able to learn. It not only
cures croup, but when given as poon
as the croupy cough appears, will
prevent the attack. In canes of whoop
ing cough it liquefies the tough mucus,
making it easier to expectorate, and
lessens the severity and frequency of the
paroxysms of coughing, thus depriving
that disease of all dangerous conse
quences. For sale by all druggists.
Stone's Cough Not will stop that
cough. 25 and 50c at The Elk Drug
