Avoid Sedative ( nich Medicines.
If you want to contribute directly to
the occurrence of capillary bronchitis
and pneumonia use cough medicines
that conti.in codlno, morphine, heroin
and other sedatives when you have a
cough or cold. An expectorant like
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is what
Is needed. That clean out/the culture
beds or breeding places toy the germs
of pneumonia and other germ diseas
es. That is why pneumonia never re
sults from a cold when Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy |g used. It has a world
wide reputation for its cures. It con
tains no morphine or other sedative.
For sale by all dealers.

And For Three Summers Mrs. Yin
cent Was Unable to Attend to
Any of Her Housework.
Pleasant Hill, N. C?"I suffered for
three summers," writes Mrs. Walter
Vincent, of this town, "and the third and
last time, was my worst.
1 had dreadful nervous headaches and
prostration, and was scarcely able to
walk about. Could not do any of my
1 also had dreadfu! pains in my back
and sides and when one of those weak,
sinking spells would come on me, 1
would have to give up and lie down,
until it wore off.
I was certainly in a dreadful state of
health, when I finally decided to try
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and 1 firmly
I believe I would have died if I hadn't
After I began taking Cardui, I was
greatly helped, and all three bottles re
lieved me entirely^
I fattened up/ and grew so much
stronger in thrre months, 1 felt like an
other person aliogether."
Cardui is purely vegetable and gentle
acting. Its ingredients have a mild, tonic
effect, on the womanly constitution.
Cardui makes for increased strength,
improves the appetite, tones up the ner
vous system, and helps to make pale,
sallow cheeks, fresh and rosy.
Cardui has helped more than a million
weak women, during the past 50 years.
It will surely do for you, what it has
done for them. Try Cardui today.
