Danger of Cold and Grip.
Tbe greatest danger from colds aud
grip la their resulting In pneumonia.
1 f reasonable care isueed, however,
aid Chamberlain's Cougb Itemed y

caiwt having resulted in pneumonia,
which abowe conclusively that it is a
certain preventive of that dangerous
dlsense. It will cure a cold or au at
tack of the grip In Ice time than any
other treatment. It is pleasant ft ml
