Avoid Spring Cold
Sudden changes, high winds, shifting
seasons cause colds and grippe, and these
spring colds are annoying and dangerous
and are likely to turn into a chronic sum
mer cough. In such cases take a treat
ment of Dr. King's New Discovery, a
pleasant Laxative Tar Syrup. It soothes
the cough, checks the cold and helps break
up an attack of grippe. Its already pre
pared, no mixing or fussing. Just ask
your druggist for a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery. Tested and tried fer over
40 years.
I have opened a mil
linery in the Jalenak

I cordially invite you
to call around and
look at my hats.
