A New Year's Guide,

berlain's Cough Remedy is the best
medicine I have ever used. It is a fine
children's remedy for croup and never
fails to cure." When given us soon as
the child becomes hoarse, or even after

will prevent the attack. This should
be borne iu mind and a bottle of the
Cough Eemedy kept at hand ready for
instant use as soon as these symptoms
appear. ( For sale by Brockway's Phar

"We recommend Chamberlain's Cough
