"In treating pneumonia," says W. .1. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., Dr "the only remedy I use for the lungs is Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. While, of course, 1 would treat other symptoms with different medicines, I have used this remedy many times in tny medical practice and have yet failed lo find a cate where it hat not controlled the trou ble. I have used if myself, at bat alto my wife, for cought and coldt repeatedly, and I most willingly and cheerfully recommend it as superior to any other cough remedy to my knowledge." For tale by E. M. Laakman.
