These are the things you should remember, and the next time you want a cough medicine, it is worth while to see that you get Chamber lain's and secure the virtues which a good name implies. Every dealer who sells a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy guarantees it to give satisfaction or he will refund the money. VERY one desires to establish for himself a good name, but it takes time to win the confidence of your fellow men. Truth and per severance are the alternate rungs on the ladder of success, and he who reaches the top must make no false step. There are hundreds of cough medicines with all sorts of names, each claiming to be the best, but the test of time will prove whether or not they have established the right to be called the best Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has had thirty-five years of sale and use, and has cured coughs and colds under all conditions, in all countries and clim ates, and the verdict today is that it has no equal Coughs,Colds CROUP.
