HOW TO SAVE
About "fooling the people" is generally accepted as true,
but it is a pretty hard matter to fool the housewife who
has once traded at Shields' Cash Grocery, where qualities 5

best groceries are sold, but also because of the fact that -there
is a marked saving on every purchase. Try it and .if

of the lungs, produces a free expector
ation, and ojens the secretions. A
complete cure soon follows. For sale
by all leading druggists.

as adults are frequently dangerous at
this season of the year, and a little
