I have found Dr. Moffett's Teeth
ina a splendid remedy and aid for
my teething childieu. When my
oldest boy was a teething child ev
ery succeeding day warned us that
we would inevitably lose him. I
happened upon Teethina and began
at once administering it to him, and
his improvement was marked in 24
hours, and from that day on he re
cuperated. I have constantly kept
it and used it since with my children
and have taken great pleasure in
sounding its praise to all mothers of
young children. I found it valuable
even after the teething period was
passed. Mrs. D.H.Hardy.
