' Neglected Colds Threaten lASe.
From the Chicago Tribune. 1
" 'Don't trifle with a cold is good advice
for prudent men and women. It may be
vital in the case of a child. Proper food,
good Ventilation, and dry, warm clothing are
the proper safeguards against colds. If they
are maintained through the changeable
weather of autumn, winter and spring, the
chances of a surprise from ordinary colds
will be slight. But the ordinary light cold
will become severe if neglected, and a well
established ripe cold is to the germs of diph
theria what honey is to the bee. The great
est menace to child life at this season of the
year is the neglected cold.' ' Whether it is a
child or adult, the cold slight or severe, the
very best treatment that can be adopted is to
give Chamberlain 's Uough Kemedy. it is
safe and sure. The great popularity and im
