Years of widespread us? confirm us
in the belief that the s'.tccess of Kck
inan's Alterative In cases of pulmonary
tuberculosis <consumption) and chronic
throat and bronchial troubles Is due in
large measure to Its content of lime,
so combined with other ingredients as
to be easily appropriated by the cells.
Doubtless this has had much to do
with the results obtained in many cases
of these affections, which appear to
have yielded to Keknian's Alterative.
