A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE
SAVED HER LITTLE DAUGH
TER'S LIFE.
I am the mother of eigth children
and have had a great deal of experience
with medicines. Last summer mj
little daughter had the dysentery in its
worst form. We thought sue
die. I tried everything I could thiuR
of, but nothing seemed to do her any
good. I saw by an advertisement n
our nner that Chamberlain's Colic.
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was
hirhlv recommended and sent ana
a bottle at once. It proved to he one
of the very best medicines we ever had
in the house. It saved my nine ure
ter's life. I am anxious for every
mother to kuow what an exceiic
medicine it is. Had I known it at rr
it would have saved me a great deni
anxiety aud my little daughter niucn
suffering. Yours truly. Mus. (t'-'-r;
