better known as for many years head

Hardening of the urteiles was the
cause of his death.

battle against great odds after he was
first stricken September 29, 1915. and
since which time he had been up and

family reunion and the callB of numer
ous friends, to say nothing of large
numbers of congratulatory telegrams

with those present, was delighted at
the receipt of. so many kindly messages
and declared the celebration was one

ff DIRECTIONS FOR THE USE
f Vapors Important For diseases of
the resmratorv oreans. such as colds,
large part of the value of Vickt lies in
its vaporizing qualities. Therefore,
whenever Vicks is applied over the
throat and chest, care should be taken
to leave the clothing loose around the
neck and the bed clothes arranged 'in---
(the form of a funnel, so that the vapors
arising may be freely inhaled.
Hot Wet Cloths In cases of very
severe colds, tore throat, coughs, incip
ient pneumonia, etc., hot, wet towela
should be applied over the throat and
chest to open the pores of the skin be
fore applying Vicks. 4
Fresh All Plenty of fresh air in the
bed room is the best way to prevent
colds and lung troubles. Fresh air does
not cause colds ; it strengthens the lungs,
enabling the system to throw off colds.
Asthma Vicks is not a "cure" for
asthma so far as we know, there is no
cure. In many cases, however, Vicks
does give relief. Rub it well over the
spinal column; from the neck to the
hips to relieve the nervous tension.
Then apply freely over throat and chest
at bed time and cover with hot flannels.
Renew frequently and always have the .
covers loose, so that the vapors may be
freely inhaled. Also melt Vicks in a
spoon and inhale the vapors and apply
a little up the nostrils.
Bronchitis, Sore Threat, Cold, in tha

hot, wet towels over the throat and
chest. Then rub Vicks In well until
the skin is red, spread on thickly and

There are to many varieties of catarrh
that competent physician should al
ways be consulted. For many forms,
however, Vlck is excellent. Dissolve
a half teaspoonful of salt in a pint of
warm water and snuff up the nostrils
night and morning. Then Insert Vickt

sible, snuffing well back into the sir
Children's Colds Vicks it particu
larly valuable in treating children's
colds, since it it an external treatment;
and therefore, doe not disturb the
delicate digestions of children. The
best plan is to keep Vicks constantly
on hand and apply freely and often at
the first sign of "sniffles."

medication cannot be applied
directly to the air passages and lungs
except in the form of vapors that can
be inhaled; and, until the discovery
of Vick's VapoRub, there was no
efficient, economical method of sup
plying these vapors.
i.S l- :
. THE NEW WAY
Treatment by Viek's VapoRub, which
is applied externally relieving by inhala
tion as a vapor and by absorption and
stimulation through the skin. (
Vicks Acts Both Externally
VICK'S VAPORUB is the discovery of a North
t Carolina druggist, L. Richardson, who found a way
to combine the standard, time -tested remedies
Menthol, Camphor, Turpentine, Eucalyptus, Thyme,
Juniper, etc. in salve form, so that when Vicks is
applied to the body, these ingredients are vaporized
by the body heat
INTERNALLY, these vapors, inhaled with each breath
all night long, carry the medication direct to the air
passages and lungs
EXTERNALLY, Vicks is absorbed through and stimu
lates the skin, attracting the blood to the affected parts
and aiding the vapors inhaled to relieve the inflam
mation, or congestioa
How the Use of Vicks Has Grown
Starting with the customers of Mr, Richardson's retail
' drug store,' the, use of Vicks has increased 'county by
' county f state state, until now more than 17 million
jars are used annually practically one jar for every
family in the United States and this in spite of the fact
that Vicks is still a new treatment to many people in the
North and West. Once used, Vicks is a friend for life
