A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
is all rinht, but you want something that
will relieve and cure the more severe
and dangerous results of throat and lung
troubles. What shall you do? Go to
a warmer and more tegular climate?
Yes, if possible ; if not possible for you,
then in either case take the only remedy
that has been introduced in all civilized
countries with success in severe throat
and lung troubles, "Boechee's German
Syrup." If not only heals and stimu
lates the tissues to destroys the germ

easy expectoration, gives a good night a

Yes. August Flower still has the
largest sale of any medicine in the civ
ilized world. Your mothers and grand
mo, hers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness.
Doctors were scarce, and they seldom
heard of Appendicitis, Nervous Prostra
tion or Heart Failure, etc. They used
August Flower to clean out the system
and Btop fermentation of undigested
food, regulate the action of the liver,
stimulate the nervous and organic action
of the system, and that is all they took
when feeling null ana Dad witn
headaches and other aches. Y u only
need a few doses of Green's August
Flower, in liquid form, to make you sat

with you. Get Green's Prize Almanac
