"In treating Pneumonia." says Dr.
W. .1. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., "the only
remedy I use? for the lungs Is Cham

course, I would treat other symptoms
with different medicines, I have used
this remedy many times in my medi
cal practice and have yet failed to
find a case where It has not controlled
the trouble. 1 have used It myself, as
has also my wife for coughs and colds
repeatedly, and I most willingly and
cheerfully recommend It as superior
to any other cough remedy to my
knowledge." For sale by Laurens
