Mrs. A. C. Kirstein, Greenville, Ills., writes. "Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy has been used in my mother's home and mine for years, and we always found it a quick cure for colds and bronchial troubles. We find it to be the most reliable cough medicine we have used" Mrs. Smith Recommends Chamber lain's Tablets. "I have had more or less stomach trouble for eight or ten years," writes Mrs. G. H. Smith, Brewerton, N. Y. "When suffering from attacks of indigestion and heaviness after eating, one or two of Chamberlains Tablets have always relieved me. I have also found them a pleasant lax ative." These tablets tone up the stomach and enable it to perform its functions naturally. If you are troubled with indigestion give them a trial, get well and stay well. i RED (ROSS BOX SUPPER. The Rel Cross box supper Wed nesday ni t was a fair success, con si:ering chilly weather.
