“ I have been using Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy and want to say it
is the best cough medicine I have
ever taken,” says Geo. L. Chubb, a
merchant of Harlam, Mich. There
is no question about its being the
best, as it will cure a cough or cold
in less time than other treatment.
It should always be kept in the
house ready for instant use, for a
cold can be cured in much less
time when promptly treated. For

The Cosmopolitan Magazine occupies a posi-
sion distinctly its qwn. While giving great
attention to fiction and entertainment—fifty
short stories and one or more complete novels
appear in its pages each year —it has a definite
plan beyond. It may be likened to a great
modern university, with a million and a halt
student-readers. A year’s course embraces
what is most important in the Scientific field,
what is most interesting in Invention and Dis
covery. what is most entertaining in Travel
and adventure, what is most valuable in the
World of Business. A portion o f each num
ber is edited with reference to the Woman of
the World, another to the Woman ot the
Home, and another to interest Youth, and
still another for the Man of Affairs, covering
equally the clerk just startiug in lite anti the
