When a man has suffered for sev
eral days with colic, diarrhoea or
other form of bowel complaint and
is then cured sound and well by one
or two doses of Chamberlain'*? colic,
cholera and diarrhoea remedy, as is
often the case, it is but natural that
he should be enthusiastic in his
praise of the remedy, and especially
is this thc case of a severe attack
when life is ireatened. Try it
when in need ?,."* such a remedy. It
never fails. Sold by all dealers.

from 145 to 125 pounds. I suffered
for about two months when I was ad
vised to use Chamberlain's colic,
cholera and diarrhoea remedy. I j
used two bottles of i? nd it gave
I me permanent relief,' ./rites B W
