In one day last veek, the Kaupisch
creamery turned out 5,760 pounds of
butter. Nearly three tons of butter in

HOW. TO BREAK UP A COLD
- It may be a surprise to many to
learn that a severe cold can be com
pletely broken up in one or two days'
time. The first symptoms of ' a cold
are a dry, loud cough, a profuse watery
discharge from the nose, and a thin,
white coating on the tongue. , When
Chamberlain's cough remedy is taken
every hour on the first appearance of
these symptoms, it counteracts the ef
fect of the cold and restores the sys
tem to a healthy condition within a day
o.r two. For sale by W. P. McMillan.

There are many people who have
used Chamberlain's Colic. Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy with splendid
results, but who are unknown because
they have hesitated about giving a
testimonial of their experience for pub
lication. These people, however, are
none the friends of this remedy. They
have done much toward making it a
household word by their personal re
commendations to friends and neigh
bors. It is a good medicine to have
in the home and Is widely known for
its cures of diarrhoea and all forms of
bowel trouble. For sale by W. P. McMillan.
