When You Have a Bad Cold
You want the best medicine that can
be obtained, and that is Chamberlain’s
Cough Remedy. You want a remedy
that will not only give quick relief but
effect a permanent cure. You want a
remedy that will relieve the lungs and
keep expectoration easy. You want a
remedy that will counteract any ten
dency toward pneumonia. You want a
remedy that is pleasant and safe to take.
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy is the only
medicine in use that meets all of these
requirements. This remedy is famous
for its cure of bad colds throughout the
United States and in many foreign
countries. It has many rivals, but, for
the speedy and permanent cure of bad
colds, stands without a peer and its splen
did qualities are everywhere admired
and praised. For sale by 8. Howorth

many years doctors pronounced it a local
disease, anti prescribed local remedie«,
and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven catarrh to be a con

constitutional treatment. Hall’s Ca

constitutional cure on the market. It is
