Captain WUlnef's Remarkable Escape

For many years, Captain Willnef,
says the Times of G'oucester, Mass.,
was one of the best known sfamnn in
the Gloucester Fleet. The sea and its
dangers had no terror for him, but the
catarrhal troubles with which ho suf
fered for tlftoen years, made him dread
the nights at sea. for he had to walk
the cabin floor, being unable to He
down and sleep on account of the con
stant catarrhal dropping.
Captain Wilnef went to tw:> differ
ent hospitals for treatment, but could
get no lasting benefit. He constantly
raised yellow and grren phlegm and
his trouble became to unbaara^lo ard
nauseating that he was ashamed t i go
out in company. When despair' of
over getting relief, his wife purchased
a Hyomel outfit for hi n and trying it
before going to bed, be enjo^ot thi

A JUDICIOUS INQUIRY.
A well known traveling man who
visits the drug trade says he haB often
beard druggists inquire of customers
who ask( d for a cough medicine,
whether it was wanted for a chi'd or
for an adult, and if for a child they al
most invariably recommended Cham
berlain's Cou^h Remedy. Toe reason
for this is that they know there Is no
danger from it and that it always euros.
There is u >c the least danger In giving
it, and for c mghs, colds and croupjit is
unsurpassed. For sale by Laurens
