Therefore, if; you have a Cough, use Jayne's Expectorant and be cured, for it is the proper means.

Have you Bronchitis, Spitting of Blood, Pleurisy, or in fact any Pulnvmary Jiffection, then use Jayne's lulm'maryAJJection, Expectorant and rel.ei is certain and you will find that vou have used the proper means.
