t CURE DRINK TEA! :
Get a small package of Hamburg Breast
Tea, or as the German folks call it, "Ham
burger Brust Thee," at any pharmacy.
Take a tablespoonful of the tea, put a
cup of boiling water upon it, pour
through a sieve and drink a teacup full at
anytime. It is the most effective way to
break a cold and cure grip, as It opens the
pores, relieving congestion. Also loosens
the bowels, thus breaking a cold at once.
It is inexpensive and entirely vegre
