was cooked in her kettle." A

throat and king diseases, Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral is invataable. Mrs. E. 6. Edgerly,

'it an absolute cure for all such affections,
and am never without it In the house."
Mrs. L. E. Herman, 187 Mercer St., jersey

writes: "For thespeedy cure of sudden
Colds, and for the relief of children afflict

It is the most potest of all the remedies I
have ever used." "W. H. Stickler, Terre

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
with me. It Is without a rival for the cure
