When You Have a Cold.
The first action when you have a
cold should be to relieve the lungs.
This is best accomplished by the free
use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
This Remedy liquefies the tough mu
cus and caus.es its expulsion from the
air cells of the lungs, produces a free
expectoration, and opens the secre
tions. A complete cure soon follovts.
This remedy will cure a severe cold
in less time than any other treatment
and it leaves the system in a natural
healthy condition. It counteracts
any tendency toward pneumonia.
