Good Cough Medicine for Children,
The season for coughs and colds is
now at hand and too much care can
not be used to protect the children.
A child Is much more likely to con

when he has a . cold. The quicker
you' cure his cold the le3s the risk.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is the
sole reliance of many mothers, and
few of. those who have tried It are

I have 'never used anything other
than Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
for my children, and it has always
