If the fire bell should ring would you run and stop it or go and help to put out the fire? It is much the same way with a cough. A cough is a danger signal as much as a fire bell. You should no more try to suppress it than to stop a fire bell when it is ringing, bat should cure the disease that causes the coughing. This can nearly always be done by taking Chamberlain's Congh Remedy. Many have used it with the most benefical results.* It is especially valuable for the persistent cough that sooften follows a bad cold or an attack of the grip. Mrs. Thomas Beeching. Andrews, Ind., writes: "Dur ing the winter my husband takes cold easily and coughs and coughs. Chamberlain's Congh Remedy is the best medicine for breaking ap these attacks and yon cannot get him to take any other. Obtainable everywhere.
