you are in no danger of consumption.
Do not risk your health by taking some

It is a revelation to people, the severe
eases of lung trouble that have been
cured by Foley's Honey and Tar. It
not only stops the cough but heals and
strengthens the lungs. L. M. Buggies,

said I had consumption , and I got no
better until I took Foley's Honey and
Tar. It stopped the hemorrhages, and
pain in my lungs and they are now as
sound as a bullet." Dove & Williams.

every sore, burn or wound to which it
is applied. 25 cents at all druggists.
