Proper Treatment for Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although he may have the
proper remedies at hand. A physician
should always be called. It should be
borne in mind, however, that pneu
monia always results from a cold or
from' an attack of the grip, and that
by giving Chamberlain"- Cough Rem
edy the threatened attack of pneumo
nia may be warded off. This remedy
is also used by physicians in the treat
ment of pneumonia with the best re
sults. Dr. W. J. Smith, of Sanders,
Ala., who is also a druggist, says of
it: "I have been selling Chamber
Iain's Cough Eemedy and prescribing
it in my practice for the past six
years. I use it in cases of pneumonia
and have always gotten the best re
sults. Sold by all druggists.
PBenaaeftia Follows m Cold
but never follows the use of Foley
Honey and Tar. It stops the cough,
heals and strengthens the lungs and
affords perfect security from an at
tack of pn,"n,OBia- Eefuse substi
tutes. All drug-gists. ;
