New York, Dec'. 25. A special from
Belin Bays : ' . . .
Emperor William has expressed the
opinion that the Anglo-American con

Geo. W. Jenkins, editor of the Santa
Mai la "Times," Cal., in speaking of the
various ailments of children said:
" When my children have croup there is
only one patent medicine I ever use, and
that is Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
It possesses some medical properties
that relieve the little sufferers immedi
ately.' It is, in my opinion, the best
cough medicine in the market." If this
remedy is freely given as soon as the
croup cough appears it will prevent the
attack. . It is also an ideal remedy for
whooping couch. There ia no danger in
