Danger of Colds and Grip.
Tne greatest danger from colds and
grip is their resuming in pneumonia. If
reasonable care is used, however, and
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken, all
danger will be avoided. Among the tens
of thousands who have used this reuie
d for these diseases we have yet to
learn of a single case having resulted in
pneumonia, which shows conclusively
that it is a certain preventive of that
dangerous disease. It will cure a cold
