"My mother was troubled with
consumption for many years. At
last she was given up to die. Then
she tried Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
and was speedily cured."
D. P. Jolly, Avoca, N. Y.
No matter how hard
your cough or how long
you have had it, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral is the
best thing you can take.
It's too risky to wait -
until you have consump
tion. If you are coughing
today, get a bottle of
Cherry Pectoral at once.
Three sizes : 25c., SOc., $1. All druggists.
Consult ymir oloctor. If ho says take it,
theti to) a h says. If he toells you not
to tako it. thou dlon't tako it. Ho knows.
Loave it with him. Wo aro willing.
