Best Medicine for Colds
When a druggist recommends a
remedy for colds, throat and lung
troubles, you can feel sure that he
knows what he is talking about. C,

writes of Dr. King's New Discovery:
'I know Dr. King's New Discovery
is the best throat and lung medicine
I sell. It cured tny wife of a severe
bronchial cold after all other reme
dies failed." It will do the same
for you it you are suffering with a
cold or any brot.chial, throat or lung
cough. Keep a bottle on hand all
the time for every ono in the family
to use. It is a home doctor. Price
60c and $1.00. Guaranteed by all
druggists.
