Taking Desperate #Chances.
It is true that many contract severe
colds and recover from them without
taking any precaution or treatment, and
a knowledge of this fact leads others to
take their chances instead of giving
their colds the needed attention. It
should be borne in mind that every cold
weakens the lungs, lowers the vitality,
makes the system less a"ble to withstand
each succeeding attack and paves the
way for the more serious diseases. Can
you afford to take such desperate chan
ces when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
famous for its cures of bad colds may
be had for a trifle?
Dr. J. H. Gambrell, a resident,

tion. Only one section of the build

100 patients. Other sections will be

How many times have you had tires
fixed only to have them "give out” on

fix blow-outs and weah spots in a
way that usually mahes them even
stronger than the rest of the tire.
Poor repair worft on tires it ulti

blow-out soon that may ruin the tire
completely.
Just give us a trial and we will
show you that our prices are low and
