REM’S quick action
sweet music to him
Mr. Jack A. Haines of 379 Bloom
field Ave., Bloomfield, N. J., was
not in a mood to tickle a banjo
when he started for home in a
jitney bus. A cough had bothered
him all day and he felt blue and
unhappy. Ho read a REM ad in
the bus and bought a bottle before
he reached home. “I took some
REM at once,” says Mr. Haines,
“and by the next day I was much
better. I’ve never seen anything
relieve a cough so quickly as
REM.” REM’s quick action in
relieving coughs has delighted
thousands. It’s due in part to
the fact that it clings to your
throat and spreads a soothing
healing film, bringing quicker re
lief. Find that out for yourself
by asking your druggist for REM.
