SONS OP OEOROE C BOWDEN.
Geo. C. Bowden, of Little Rock, Ark., has used Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy in his family for many years, and Is seldom without It In the
house. He says: " Chamberlain s Congh Remedy has proved a great
relief to our boys In their throat and lung troubles. A few doses of It will
ward off a threatened attack of croup, and a bad cold Is quickly cured by
Its use. I take pleasure In recommending It." The prompt cures of colds
and croups effected by this preparation, the fact that It can always be de
pended upon, is pleasant to take and contains no opium, chloroform or
other objectionable drug, has made It a favorite with the parents of young
children. When you have a cough or cold, try it and see for yourself what
an excellent medicine it Is. Price, 25 cents. Large size, 50 cents.
