German Syrup
We want to impress on our readers
that Boscliee’s German Syrup is
positively the only preparation on
the market today that does relieve
and cure consumption. It contains
the specifiee. such as pure tar, ex
tracts of gum, etc, etc., which have
been so highly endorsed for the cure
of coughs, colds and consumption
by the great medical congresses.
The consumptive, whether his disease
is iu the throat or lungs, must have
rest at night, and be free from the
spasm of dry and racking cough in
the morning. The diseased parts
want rest, healing and soothing
tseatment, and the patient needs
fresh air, good food, etc, German
Syrup will give free and easy ex
pectoration in the mornijg with
sppedy and permanent relief. Smal
bottles 25 cents; regular size, con
taining nearly four times as much,
75 cents. At Frost & Spiej.
A Woman's Complexion.
It is rank foolishness to attempt
to remove sallowness or grea,sines>
of the skin b.y the use of cosmetics,
or “local” treatment, as advocated
by the “beauty doctors.” The only
safe and sure way that a woman can
improve her complexion is l>3 r purify
ing and enriching the blood, which
cun only be accomplished by keeping
the liver healthy and active. The
liver is the seat of disease and blood
pollution. Green’s August Flower
acts "directly on the liver, cleanses
and enriches the blosd, purifies the
complexion. It also cures consti
pation, biliousness, nervousness, and
induces refreshing sleep. A single
bottle of August Flower has been
hnown to cure ihe most pronounced
and distressing case of dyspepsia
and digestion. New trial size bottle
25 cents; regular size 75 cents. At
Frost & Spies.
