Croup Cured and a Child's Life Saved
"It affords me great pleasure to
add my testimony to that of the thou
sands who have been benefitted by
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. My
child, Andrew, when only three years
old was taken with a severe attack
of croup, and thanks to the prompt
use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
his life was saved and today he is a
robust and healthy boy," says Mrs. A
Coy, Jr., of San Antonio, Teas. This
remedy has been in use for many
years. Thousands of mothers keep it
at hand, and it has never been known
to fail. For sale by P. M. Kirkland.
Buy Farm at Corvallis.
The Armstrong place, formerly the
property of W. C. Metcalf, about two
miles south of this city, was sold
last Tuesday to Messrs. T. J. Pettit
of Corvallis and Peter Kurre of Inde
pendence. There are 102 acres in
this farm and this is to he cut into
five and ten acre tracts and placed
on the market. The land lies just
across the road from the race track,
reaches to Mary's river and is as
sightly a piece of ground as is to
be found anywhere. Messrs. Kurre
and Pettit propose to cut a road
through, fence the smaller tracts and
sell at only a fair advance on their
money. It is understood the ground
cost them $10,000.
By a typographical error the bal
ance of cash on hand for the book
fund, as published in the library re
port last week, was made to read $12
when it should have been $112.
