Good Cough Medicine for children.
The season for coughs and colds
is now at hand and too much care
cannot be used to protect the chil
dren. A child is much more likely
to contract dlphtherlaorscarletfever
when he has a cold. The quicker you
cure bis cold the less the risk. Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy is the sole
reliance of many mothers, and few
of those who have tried it are will
ing to use any other. Mr?. F. F.
Starcher, of Ripley, W. Va., says: "I
have never used anything other than
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for
my children and it has always given
good satisfaction." This remedy
contains no opium or other narcotic
and may be given aa confidently to a
child as to an adult. For sale by J.
