The tendency of medical science Is
toward preventive measures. The best
thought of the world is being given
to the subject. It is easier and better
to prevent than to cure. It has been
fully demonstrated that pneumonia,
pne of the most dangerous diseases
that medical science have to contend
with, can be prevented by the use of
Chamberlain's Cough Kemedy. , rnen
monia always results from a cold or
from an attack of 'influenza (grip),
and it has been okserved that this
remedy counteracts any tendency of
these diseases toward pneumonia.
This bas been fully proven in many
thousands of cases in which this rem
edy has been Used during the great
prevalence of colds and grip in recent
years, and can be relied upon with
implicit confidence. Pneumonia often
results from n slight cold when no
danger is apprehended xmtil it is sud
denly discovered that there is fever
and difficulty in breathing and pains
