The control of man over nature's
forces in various spheres is already
a fact. This has greatly improved
our relations with the elements
about us. And if such control
could be extended to the weather,
there is no reaon to doubt that a
similar improvement will take
place in the present anarchic con
ditions, which, at times at least, j
characterize the conduct of tfm
The first thing, for instance, that
such a committee could do wou'd

remarkable record. It bas been in use
lor over thirty years, during which
time many million bottles have been
sold and used. It has long been the
standard and main reliance in tbe
treatment of croup in thousands of
homes, yet during all tnis time no case
has ever been reported to the manufac
turers In Which, it failed to effect a
cure. When given as soon as the
child becomes hoarse or even as soon
as tbe croupy cough appears, it will
prevent the attack. It is pleasant to
take, many children like it. It con
tains no opium or other harmful sub
stance and may be given as confident
