You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. During the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippa to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the

striking him a terrific blow on the bead
with a heavy beer bottle. Campbell
staggered back, then drew a revolver,
nd shot Hardwick through the heart.
As the latter was falling, Campbell shot
him in the back. Hardwick'a death was

Campbell left the saloon and got his re
