LOS ANGELES HERALD. VOL. 37. —no. m A GREAT SHOWING. Los Angeles the Banner Breeding County. Some of the World's Champions Bred Here. The Wonderful Records Made by Los Angeles Breeders. Stars of the Equine Hemisphere That First Saw the Light of Day in T.os Angeles County — Brilliant Turf Records Made. Los Angeles county is famous the world over as a great breeding center, and why not? Is any county in America better adapted for the raising of fine stock than Los Angeles county? The Hon. L. J. 'Rose, probably the most suc cessful trotting horse breeder in Amer ica, wrote as follows several years since, when describing the benefits of this county: "But I fear you will think that lam neglecting the business in hand, that is, writing about horses; yet I may be ex cused if I am enthused, and believe that all these natural advantages, all this beauty of scenery, all this fertility of soil, this purity of atmosphere, this pleasant climate, where we never have extreme heat nor cold, where every day is almost always sunshine and never cold, and every night cool and refresh ing ; where the grasß is the most abund ant and nutiitions; where the water is the purest, should also be the most favored for the production of the ideal horse. Nor is this belief entirely with out some facts for its foundation. lam now writing by a window that overlooks San Gabriel valley for miles, and the orange groves and vineyards of Sunny Slope, my former home, whero more trotters have been foaled and made, in propr rt.ion to the number bred and time spent, than any spot on earth. In Bight, too, lies Santa Anita, the home and breeding farm of E. J. Baldwin, Esq., where he has reared his runners, all of which have been winners, and, for the number bred, have been better per formers than any like number bred in Kentucky, or any other country. "Both of these places are in plain view from my window. I may there fore be excused if lam somewhat elated, for it cannot be that both of these phenomenal successes be accidents; so they may be deemed facts that cast their shadows before." Mr. Rose makes a great point in favor of this county—one that cannot success fully be controverted. I now propose to show what this county has accomplished in the way of breeding. Justice cannot be done the subject in the limited space at my disposal. L. J. Rose, E. J. Bald win, L. H. Titus, Hancock Johnson and other pioneer breeders have established the reputation of this county on a sound basis, as the following wonderful show ing will demonstrate very effectually : The fastest pacer the world ever saw is Direct, 2:06. Direct was bred by Mr. Titus of San Gabriel. Not only is Direct the fastest pacer, but he also enjoys the distinction of being the fastest double gaited horse, having a record of 2:18*4 at the trotting gait. He also ha-i the fastest race record. At Columbus, Term., laßt year the black little demon from California beat the hitherto invincible Hal Pointer in 2:09, 2:08 and 2 ;08%. Etfiora, 2:23> 2 , the dam of Direct, was by old Echo, and was bred by John Young of Lob Angeles. The lirst 2 year-old that ever trotted inside of 2:30 was Sweetheart, a Los An geles filly, bred by L. J. Hose. In 1880 Sweetheart electrified the trotting world by making a mile in 2:26 12,l 2 , which at that time was the world's 2 year-old record. Sultan, a LO9 Angoles bred stallion, has sired more 2:30 performers than any other stallion ever bred in the west. Twenty-five of his get have trotted in 2:30 or better. The fastest yearling In the world over an eliptical or regulation track 13 Free dom, 2:29%. Sable, the grand dam of Freedom, was bred in this county, at Sunny Slope. The highest price ever paid for a 2 year-old trotter was paid for Mascot at a public sale in New York. This aris-, tocraticallv-bred youngster sold for' $26,000. Mascot, who was bred by L. J. Rose, was by Stamboul, 2:11, dam Minnehaha. In 1890 the Boeemeado consignment of trotters, consisting of forty-seven head, sold under the hammer at New York for $118,750. The average was $2526, which is the highest average ever obtained. How is that for a record? Ten 3-year-olds have held the world's 3-year-old record since Blackwood gained the crown in 1869, with a record of 2:31. In 188;) Hinda Rose lowered the record to and in 1886 Sable, Wilkes to 2:18. Both the dams of Hinda Rose and Sable Wilkes were bred in Los Angeles county. In 1888 Arrow held the 4 and 5-year old pacing record, with a mark of 2:14 and 2:13%- Arrow was by old A. W. Richmond, and was bred by Hancock Johnson. Bonita, a Santa Anita bred mare, won a race in Chicago in 1889, over a mile and an eighth of ground in 1:53%. It was the fastest time made at that dis tance that year and was within a quarter of a second of the world's rec ord in 1889. Sons and daughters of Minnehaha have sold for more than $120,000. This county was the first to produce a mare who was the dam of two 3-year old trotters with records better than 2:20. Reference ia made to Beautiful Bells the dam of Hinda Rose and Bell Boy. Many different yearlings have held the world's record, but only one mare has produced t?;o yearling record break ers. That mare was the Lob Angeles bred Beautiful Bells. She produced Hinda Eose, 2:36%, and Bell Bird, 2:26%. It is estimated that the progeny of Minnehaha And Beautiful Bells could be sold for over a half a million dollars. Beautiful Bella was Minnehaha's first foal. Two of tbe most sensational brood mares in America came from this county. McKinney, 2:12>2, the champion 4 year-old trotting stallion of the world, was reared and trained in Los Angeles county. McKinney was bred in Ken tucky but has been bandied exclusively by Chas. Durfee, of this city, who brought him here from the east when a colt. The great American derby has been won twice by Los Angeles bred horses. Silver Cloud and Volante both won this classic race in brilliant style. No coun ty in America has produced two winners except Los Angeles county. Los Angeles county has produced such celebrated flyers as Volante,. Sinaloa, Gano, Lucky 8., Fallen Leaf, Espe ranza, Santiago, Geraldine, Caliente, Grisette, Laredo, Santa Ana and others. This is a remarkable showing, especially when it is stated thrt they were all raised at Santa Anita, the celebrated breeding farm of E. J. Baldwin. In 1888 the Santa Anita string of run ners, consisting of twenty head, won $108,700 in purses and stakes on the eastern turf. Lucky B. by Rutherford, was the greatest cup horse of his day. Lucky B. was bred and raised in this county. Geraldine, a nfare by Grin stead and bred by Mr. Adams of this county, holds the half mile running record of the world. Geraldine's record is 46 seconds. In her 4-year-old form Geraldine was the speediest sprinter in all America. On Thursday, August 28,1890, Sinaloa, a Los Angeles bred mare, won the Jersey handicap at Monmouth park under a pull, with 117 pounds up, in the sensa tional time of 2:04 for 1% miles straight away, the fastest record ever made by a mare. Three Lob Angeles bred trotters sold under the hammer at New York for $76,000, while another one was sold at a private sale a month previous for $50,000. These four trotters were all bred by L. J. Rose. Less than six brood mares in America have produced six trotters who have records better than 2;30. Beautiful Bells is the dam of Bell Bird 2:26K (yearling), Bell Boy 2:1934 (3-year-old)", Bell Flower 2:24% (2-year-old), Hinda Rose 2:19)4 (3-year-old), St. 8e12:24>£ and Palo Alto Belle (2-year-old), and can justly be accounted the sensa tional brood mare of America. Chimes, another son, has a record of 2:30%, while Electric Bell and Bow Bells are pretty sure to go into the list this year. The champion yearling pacer of the world is Fausta, who last year paced a mile in the sensational time of 2:22%. Faustino, a brother of Fausta, trotted a mile in a race as a 3-year old in 2:14%, and who also took a yearling record of 2:35, and a 2-year-old record of 2:24. The grand dam of Fausta and Faustino was Dell Foster, a mare by A. W. Rich mond and bred by Hancock Johnson of Los Angeles. Los Angeles county has produced one out of the five fastest stallions in the world. Los Angeles has won more races than any other mare on the American turf. Thia mare, while not bred in Lob An geles county, has had the advantages of a Los Angeles winter since a yearling. Three horses have won the American Derby in Santa Anita colors, viz., Silver Cloud, Volante und Emperor of Norfolk. The Los Angelea horses Santiago and Miss Ford have also finished second in that classic race. Baron Rose, a Los Angeles bred year ling, sold under the hammer for $8500. Minnehaha and Beautiful Bells are thedam3ofno less than eleven 2:30 trotters. No mother and daughter in America can make such a showing. Jack and Geneva S., two eastern bred trotters, were wintered in Los Angeles. The next season they were the two biggest winners on the grand circuit. In 1888, Emperor of Norfolk and Los Angeleß, two 3-year-olds in the Santa Anita string won $73,000. The Emperor started eleven times and was first past the post nine times, waa second once and third once. Los Angeleß won thir teen out of twenty-six raceß, and was only unplaced in two races. In 1887, -the Loa Angelea horse Vo lante started in twenty-eight races against the best hcrses in America and won no less than thirteen races. At the end of 1890, the champion 2 year old stallion trotter was Regal Wilkes. The dam of this sensational youngster waß bred iv Los Angeles county. One of the fastest green trotters that ever showed in America was Homestake 2:14%. This game trotter was by Gibralter, a Los Angeles bred stallion. At the end of the season of 1890 Stam boul, a Los Angeles bred trotter, was the Becond fastest Btallion in the world. He only lacked a quarter of a second from tieing the world's record of 2:10%. Alcazar, a Lob Angeles bred stallion, divides the honor with Quartermaster as being the most sensational young sire of America. Enough has been written to demon strate that Los Angeles county has more than done its share in assisting to make California the greatest horse state in Ameiica. New breeders have gone into the business in recent years in this county, and great things can be expected in tbe coming years. ( Bun. Benjamin.

SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 7, 1892 —TWELVE PAGES. THE RANCHES. Typical Facts About South ern California Farms. Two Native Plants Worthy of Cultivation. A Riverside Man Writes of the Gum Disease. The Wild Poppy and the Christmas Berry Tree—Planting; Decid uous Trees—Notes. Etc, Bto. Whenever the grounds are of suffi cient Bize to allow for the growing of large shrubs, two native plants are well worthy of cultivation, says Miss K. O. Sessions in the San Diego Union. Plants that aie greatly admired by all visitors and eagerly sought for by all plant and flower lovers. I refer to the romneyacoulteri and the photinia arbu tifolia. The lormer is the beautiful, large, single white poppy, with its huge golden knob of staniens, an ideal flower for the artist indeed. It grows near the Mexican line and abundantly below, in Lower California. It is also found in parts of San Bernardino and Orange counties. It is a large growing, shrubby plant, with handsome glaucous foliage, true to the bluish green foliage of our common garden poppy, but not in shape of leaf. From May until September it tosseß its bird-like flowers high into the air on long, woody stems. It thrives admira bly in cultivation and is seen occasion ally as a very choice cut flower in San Francisco. About February the old wood should be trimmed out and immediately the strong young shoots will appear. Most poppies are annuals but nature has pro vided in the romneya a perennial shrub. The photinia arbutifolia is our "Christ mas Berry" tree, a hardy evergreen shrub with pretty white flowers like the spike of the liiy oi the valley". In culti vation the berries are luxuriant and very ornamental on tbe plant,able to brighten any lawn or group of back ground shrubbery during November and Decem ber. The plants can be grown tall and shapely and beneath their shade during spring and summer pansies or violets Will thrive or a bed of callas or foliage geraniums. On the extensive grounds of the Smiley brothers, at Redlands,this photinia is being grown in the nursery by the hundreds, for subsequent plant ing on the place. THE GUM DISEASE. Mr. James Boyd, in the Riverside Phoenix, has the following: The gum disease, about which some uneasiness has been felt by one or two orchardists who have got it somewhat, is nothing to be alarmed about. While it is very destructive when the condi tions are favorable to its development, it is a disease that can, in the writer's opinion, be kept almost entirely out of an orchard. The gum disease on the orange is practically the same disease that attacks the lemon, but the orange appears so far to be proof or nearly so against it. While the lemon will be attacked by it when it gets to be from 12 to 20 years old, the orange seldom suffers. , At least one of tne conditions that produce the disease is too much stag nant water close to the trunk of the tree, in irrigating. The orchards where it at present shows itself are those or chards that are very flat, and where the soil is "if anything lower round the trees than between the rows; and it generally appears lirst where waste water stands at the ends of the rows, and from there spreads and gradually ex tends up the rows towards the irrigating ditch. It invariably beging in the root first, and co insidious is it approachs at times that the first notice the orchardist has of it is when the tree begins to look yellow, and as if it were in poor health. When bad it may, in vigorous trees, ex tend somewhat to the branches, but the source of the evil is in the root. There is no preventive but in keeping the water away from the roots, and this can be easily done by a light plowing toward the trees, and leaving a slight depression in the center of the row. VVhen#nce it makes its appearance, the best way is to cut out every portion of diseased bark and to cover with a mix ture, such as paint or asphaltum, to ex clude the air and moisture, when, in a few months, if not too far gone, all traces of it will disappear. When, how ever, the trunk is completely girdled, and the bark on the roots pretty well gone, there is no remedy but digging up and making stove-wood of the trees. In this case it is sometimes difficult to get another tree to grow in the place of the one displaced, and the best way of all to insure the growth of a new tree is to dig a good-sized hole and fill up with virgin soil from the outside. After the trees are well started and growing, a light top dressing of good stable manure, taking care that the manure does not touch the bark, will generally insure vigorous growth. The gum disease is a quite different disease from what is called the foot-rot. The foot rot is rare in California, and differs from the gum disease in the tree appearing to be moist near the root, as if the sap was exuding all the time, un til it fully decays. The disease that attacks seed bed plants appears to be nearly allied to the foot-root, for in the young plants the root decays first, and the bark of the root will slough right oft' the tap-root. The gum disease ia generally dry and the gum exudes so slowly that it dries aB fast as it appears. A similar disease attacks apricots, and when it does ia generally fatal, and the trees will die in the summer in which they are attacked. EUCALYPTUS FICIFOLIA, Jeannie C. Carr of Pasadena writes to the Rural Press concerning this tree that should be more generally known and planted as an ornamental tree: This showiest of the eucalypti "makes a distinct forest belt in the coast region of Western Australia, from the western side of Irwin's inlet 'to the entrance of tbe Shannon, though never actually ap proaching the sea Bhore." 'The specific name of this gorgeous tree was chosen before the brilliancy of its flowers was known, and alludes to the similarity of its leaves to those of the fig trees ficus elastica, the prin cipal caoutchouc tree of India. It bears a strong resemblance to E. calophylla, but there is a marked dif ference in the seedling of the two species, the seedling leaves of the latter never being "inserted above their base to the stalk," as they are in ficifolia. Dr. Mueller saya of this, in tbe num ber of his great work when it was first published: "This eucalyptus is one of the most splendid of recent acquisitions to horticulture, and was introduced by the writer of this work into the Botanic garden of Melbourne in 1860, where it flowered already a few years afterwards while yet only in a bushy state. Soon subsequently he commenced to intro duce it abroad. Hardly anything more gorgeous can be imagined than forests of E. ficifolia about the end of January or beginning of February, when the brilliant trusses of flowers diffuse a rich red over the dark foliage of the whole landscape occupied by this tree. It should have a place in every select or namental arboretum in zones free of frost and excessive heat." PLANTING DECIDUOUS TREES. January aud February are the months for planting deciduous fruit trees in this region. Plant early and well. A few acres properly planted nowwill be worth many times what a large acreage will be poorly planted late in the season. Some growers adviße the planting of 2 and 3-year-old trees. This is generally claimed to be a mistake. While in a few instances trees of that age have been taken up and transplanted successfully by our more experienced horticulturists, the average grower and the beginner will meet with much better success from planting 1-year-old trees. There are thousands of instances in this state where 1-year-old trees, and even dormant buds, have outstripped in their growth trees transplanted when two and three years old. Dig large, deep holes; spend time and labor on your trees and future re sults from your orchard will more thau repay you. Be careful and not plant too deep, as many trees are smothered and stunted by deep planting. Put plenty of good, rich soil in the bottom oi each hole. Be sure that the roots have plenty of room and that they come well in contact with fine top soil, pressed firmly about them. Trees planted well and cared for are sure to live and thrive, and the owner is well on his way toward becoming a very successful and prosper ous fruit grower. —[Progress. NOTES. The cultivation of the liquorice plant has been suggested for South California. It thrives best in a lich sandy loam, re quires but little cultivation, and the manner of procuring the extract is sim ple. This product, is extensively used in medicinal compounds, confections, tobacco, beer, and other ways.—[Red lands Citrograph. Piant windbreaks.

They are better than an insurance policy on your grove. With formidable windbreaks protecting your trees, the culls will be few and the general appearance of the fruit much improved. Windbreaks render the as surance of profitable returns doubly sure.—[Ontario Observer. Over a month ago W. W. Bowser piled several bushels of semi-ripe oranges on the ground, throwing over them several inchea of earth. After the oranges had been buried in thia fashion just a month, the dirt was removed and the oranges were found to be beautifully colored, and as fine, juicy and sound as any to be found on the trees. Appar ently the fruit i 8 as fine in quality aa though it had matured in the usual way.— [Ontario Observer. Among the early spring bloomers in our wild flora is found the purple lupinua nanius, a dwarf California species, which is one of the most charm ing of the lupine family. These blossoms are among the first to be seen after the winter rains and already the tender pale green shoots of the plant are found in many places springing up in sunny spots. This va riety is frequently cultivated in gardens and adapts itself readily to care and cultivation.—[Crown Viata. It will be remembered that for come time past the nurserymen who made practice of importing orange trees into the state from Florida have claimed that the purple Florida scale would not live in California more than one, or, at most, two years. It has now been ascertained by John Scott, the horticultural com missioner of Los Angeles county, that beyond a doubt the scale will thrive, if anything, better than in Florida, and trees brought into tbe state three and four years ago are now covered with the pest. Fumigating iB about the only thing that will destroy this scale, as moßt of the washes do not seem to affect it.

Some Pointers About the Proper Styles in Jewelry. The Styles of Hair Dressing; Now the Fashion Watches and Necklaces of Correct Style—The Newest Faus and the Oldest — Persian Styles of Coiffure. dence to the Herald, j New York, Jan. 30th. Stylish jewelry indicates an increased partiality for enameling in colors, and a large proportion of medium-priced and also expensive articles are illustra tions of this beautiful art. Exquisite Geneva watches for ladies are in plain gold, less than an inch in diameter, also in colored enameling, these last being somewhat larger, and show tiny wreaths of flowers on a pink surface, or perhaps a landscape, sometimes a single figure, or a group of figures. These watches make up in price for what is lacking in size. The plainest style, without a chatelaine, commences at $50 and runs up to $260. Very Bhort plain or jeweled chatelaines are used with these minia ture beauties, pinned on the front of the coisage, a little to one side, while in -direct opposition is seen at the opera and other evening entertain ments delicate gold chains, worn around the neck, a yard and a half in length with pearls set in about three inches apart, to which is attached an opera glass or fancy watch. Necklaces are very fashionable this season, and the latest style is from twenty to thirty strands of fine gold cord, held in position by three upright bars of small pearls or diamonds, one in front and one on each side, producing a collar-like effect. A large jewel in front instead of a bar ia a beautiful change, but materially increases the cost, A single pendant or several amaller ones is also very fashionable, and an enameled chain with five or seven pend antß of the same size, either of stones or enameled flowers, is another favorite style. The bow-knot or rosette shape are popular for brooches, and in general appearance resemble "baby ribbon" bows, as the simulated ribbon is about tbe same width, and while many are of plain gold, others are enamelled in stylish colors, dotted over with dia mond, ruby or emerald sparks. Frogs and lizards are new designs in brooches, but these are very expensive, being almost entirely composed of jewels. A little green frog, about an inch long, with diamond eyes and a white enam elled body covered with emeralds, costß $100, so that the privilege of wearing frogs is exclusively confined to the rich. No material change has taken place in earrings or bracelets for two seasons past; therefore designs then fashionable remain in style. FANS ARE IN GREAT VARIETY regarding Btyle and price—from the modest spangled gauze at $5 to the gorgeous Venetian point at $275. The newest fan is the oldest, so to speak; being a revival of the antique fan of Louis XVI, painted in Watteau figures on silk with ivory sticks in open work carving, and is much smaller than other fashionable styles. Amber-shell hand les are also a novelty, pro duced by clarifying light colored tortoise shell, and are so expensive that they are only used with very fine lace or feathers. A beauty in point lace, with an exquisite center piece, painted by a leading Parisian artist, and amber shell stick may be had for $250. The most beautiful and expensive fans of the season are seen in opera boxes, from which emanates the delicious fragrance of Lauteir's May bells,and Maybells violet water is also a luxury much used by our fashionable classes. Marabout or os trich feather fans are very popular: those in "shaded feathers" being quite a novelty and reasonable in price, be ginning at $40. Black or white ostrich feather fans are quite large, measuring seventeen inches in length, and the breadth of the feathers and material of the sticks constitute their greatest charm and increase their cost. Black lace fans remain in style, and spangles are much used on gauze, duchesse or applique, but never with real point. What fash ion is pleased to term an "opera outfit" is a brocaded silk bag, containing a fan, bon-bon box, opera glasses and powder puff box, suspended from the waist by ribbon loops, with long, flowing ends. IN THE FASHIONABLE COIFFURE of today, a luxuriant growth of hair is rather a disadvantage than otherwise, as soft loops, or clusters of small puffs that are quite as stylish aa the Psyche knot, require very little hair, and it is said tbat Parisian hair dressers cut out all that is not requisite. The avoidance of everything like stiffness is the pre vailing idea in present styles, and the fancy for waved hair, precludes any thing akin to formality. Evening coif fures are generally high, but a style in twisted loops, half of which is placed on top of the head, and the lower half closely pinned to the back with a fancy pin ,is very popular, and less try ing than other styles, being equally suitable for all occasions. For balls or the opera a parure of ribbon is very fashionable, consisting of narrow white or colored ribbon, wound on ribbon wire, passing around the head under tbe high knot, with several high loops and Bhort ends in front, and were not the hair waved the ensemble might be somewhat ungraceful. Ornamental pins are a necessity, and while the most beautisul are of real jewels, those in gilt, colored stones, amber shell or tortoise shell are very attractive and sufficiently expensive for a perhaps transitory style. High tortoise shell combs are again fashionable, and cer PAGES 9 TO 12. FIVE CENTS. tainly impart a peculiarly stylish ap pearance to a well shaped head and reg ular features. Fannie Field. KINDERGARTENS. Their Condition and Wants in Lo* Angelei. No topic of public interest is worthy of more attention than that of the kin dergarten system of education, which, originated in the mind of Froebel, a student under Pestalozzi, and one of four famous educational reformers—Come- niua in the seventeenth, Rousseaujin the eighteenth and Pestalozzi in the nine teenth century, were the three preced ing him. To Rousseau's estimate of "individ ual growth and moral excellence," and to Pestalozzi's idea of "harmony be tween individuals and society and com munion with God," Froebel added the belief in the harmonious de velopment of the child's facul ties; to secure which, mental and moral training are not sufficient, but physical exercises are also necessary, that work of the hands, and thought that this develops, may make of tbe child, almost at the outset, "a young discoverer, inventor and manufacturer." He was convinced that the physical and intellectual faculties of a child must de velop slowly; that the transition from the nursery to the ordinary school room, is too abrupt, and that the kindergarten is the bridge by which the passage is made easy. These schools were first introduced into the United States by Mme. Kriege and her daughter, Alma Kriege, who had been sent to New York, from Eu rope, by Baroness Yon Marenholz Bu low, IFroebel'e "chief apostle." Mra. Horace Mann of Boston invited them to that city, where their teachings took such deep hold that a kindergarten and normal class was formed. In 1870, through the persistent efforts of Miss Peabody, sister of Mre. Mann, the city government agreed to support one kindergarten, and in 1875 established four others, but did not appropriate suf ficient funds for their support. Mrs. Qaincy Shaw, daughter of Pro fessor Agassiz, possessed of "deep and abiding enthusiasm for the principles of Froebel," and of marvellous executive ability, established twenty free kinder gartens, and devoted her great wealth to them, carrying them on twelve years. In 1887 the school board incorporated these in the public school system. The city of Los Angeles was not far behind; as in 1890, it took the same step with regard to the one well established kindergarten, which till that year had been supported by the efforts of a few earnest women. Besides this school, the city opened eight or nine others, in the various wards, but the kinder garten association still worked on, and established two new charity kindergartens, in districts where they were much needed, but not yet supplied by the city. These two schools are now dependent upon-funds raised by contri butions from most of those who had been interested in the one lately es tablished. To add to these funds, the board of managers have planned a course of lec tures to be given at the Los Angelea theater as follows: On February 20th, readings by Cable, from hia writinga on Creole Life; February 23d, lecture by Cable, My Vote and my Conscience, and March 221, a lecture by .Max U'Bellon America aa aeen through French Spec tacles. Tickets for couree or single lecture, can be secured at the Exchange, 223 S. Broadway. L> Grippe 1 The tendency of this disease toward pneumonia is what makes it dangeious. La grippe requires precisely the same treatment as a severe cold. Chamber lain's Cough Remedy is famous for its cures of severe colds.
