A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure the
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What shall
vou do? do to a warmer and more
regular climate? Yes. if possible: if
not possible for vou, then in either
case take the only remedy that has
been introduced in all civilized coun
tries with success in severe throat and
lung troubles, "Itoschee's German

ulates the tissues to destroy the germ
