without taking any precaution or
treatment, and a knowledge of this
fact leads others to take their chan

needed attention. It should be borne
in mind that every cold weakens the
lungs, lowers the vitality, makes the
system less able to withstand each
succeeding attack and paves the way
for the more serious diseases. Can

chances when Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, famous for its cures of bad
colds may be had for a trifle?—Adv.
