Cough Remedy. '-It is kept on hand contin--iially
in our home," says W. W. Kearney-'
editor of the Independent Lowry City, Mo,,
That is just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
settled in the system.. This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and,
will prevent the attack when, given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be.
done when the remedy is kept at hand. For

nine dollars in living expenses for every

not be too careful about unnecessary ex

save several dollars, outlay later on. It is
