How to Cure a Cold
Be as careful as ou c*n you will oc
casionally take cold: and when yon do,
get a mtdlcine of known reliability:
one that has has an established repu
tation and that, is certain to effect a
quick cure. Such a medicine is Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy It has gain
ed a world wide reputation by its re
markable cures of this most emmon
ailmeut: and ean always be depended
upon. It acts on nature's plan, relieves
the lungs, aids expectoration, opens
the vecretions aod aids nature in re*
Btoring the system to a healthy con
dition. During the many y$ara in
whiehitbas been la general use we
have yet to learn of a single case of
cold or attack of the grip having re
sulted in pneumonia when tnis medy
was nsed which shows conclusively
that it is a certain preventive of that
dangerous disease. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy contains no opium or
other narcotic and may be givan as
confidently to a baby as to an adult,
