A N'liiht Alarm.
Worse than an alarm of tire at night

and quickly cures the worst forms of
croup. Mrs. P. L. Cordier. of Man
niagtoa. Ky.. writes: "My 3-year-old
girl had a severe case of croup; the.
doctor sail she could not live. I got
a bottle of Foley's Honey and Tar
the first dose gave quick relief and
saveit her life." lief use substitutes.

An Krly Ut-r-
A strong, healthy, active constitu

of the liver. The famous little pills
known as DeWitt's Little Early Risers
not only cleanse the s-v; tern, but they
strengthen the action of the liver and
rebuild the tissues supporting that or
gan. Little Early Risers are easy to
act. they never gripe, and yet they
are absolutely certain to produce re
sults that are satisfactory in all cases.
Sold by all druggists.
