How to Prevent Pneumonia.
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 yeara ago
when so many bases 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 daDgereus
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds and La Grippe.

La Grippe Successfully Treated.'
"I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of La Grippe this year," says
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I used Chamberlain's Cough Rem'
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this emedy as 1
bad to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while in tbe first
case" I was able to attend " to ' business
about two days before getting: 'down.' "

tirety, acting on the theory that delay
in this crisis is dangerous, and that an

brought about through failure to prompt
