Proper Treatment of Pneumo
nia. Pneumonia is too dangerous a dis
ease for anyone to attempt to doctor
himself, although he may have tbe
proper remedies at band. A physician
should always be called. It should be
borne in mind, however, that pneu
monia always results from a cold or
from an attack of the grip, and by the
proper treatment of these diseases a
threatened attack of pneumonia may
be warded off. There is no question
whatever about this, as during the
thirty years and more that Chamber
lain's Cough Bemedy has been used,
we have yet to learn of a single case of
a cold or attack of the grip having re
sulted in pneumonia when this reme
dy was used. It is also used by physi
cians in the treatment of pneumonia
with tbe best results. Dr. W. J.
Smith, of Bandera, Ala., who is also a
druggist, says of it: "I have been
selling Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
and prescribing it in my practice for
the past six years. I use it In cases of
pneumonia and have always gotten
the best results." Bold by all druggist.
