It has been fully demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the most dangerous dlscnsep that medi cal men have to contend with, can bo prevented by the use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re sults from a cold or from nn attack of lulluenza (grip), and It has been ob served that this remedy counteracts any tendency of these diseases toward pneumonia. This has been fully proven In ninny thousands of ciihch In which this remedy has been used during the great prevalence of colds and grip In recent years, and can be relied upon with Implicit confidence. Pneumonia often results from n slight cold, when no danger Is apprehended until It Is suddenly discovered that there Is fever and difficulty in breathing nnd pains In the chest; then It Is announced that the patient has pneumonia.
