severe bronchlel trouble for a year."
wrote G. T. Richardson, of Richard
son's Mills. Ala., "we feared it had
consumption. It had a bad cough all
the time. We tried many remedies
without avail, and the doctor's mede

tried Dr. King's New Discovery, and
are pleased to say that one bottle ef
fected a complete cure, and our child
is aealn strontc and healthy. "For
coughs, colds, hoarseness, lagrippe,
asthma, croup and sore lungs, its the
most infallible remedy that's, made.
