Three Doctor? in Conntillation.
From Benjamin Franklin.
“When you are sick, what you like
best is to lie chosen for a medicine in the
first place; what experience tells you is
best, to be chosen in the second place;
what reason (i. e., theory) says is best,
to be chosen in the last place. Rut if
you can get Dr. Inclination, Dr. Experi
ence and Dr. Reason to hold a consulta
tion together, they will give you the beet
advice that can be taken.”
When you have a bad cold Dr. Incli
nation would recommend Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy because it is pleasant and
safe to take. Dr. Experience would rec
ommend it because it never fails to effect
a speedy and permanent cure. Dr.
Reason would recommend it because it
is prepared on scientific principles, and
acts on nature’s plan in relieving the
lungs, opening the secretions and restor
ing the system to a natural and healthy
condition. For sale by 8. Iloworth&Co.

The Companion's New Calendar.
The calendars given by the Companion

those. The publishers have endeavored
to make it the finest calendar of the cen
tury, and readers of The Companion will
not be disappointed in it. Those who
subscribe now will receive not only the
gift of the calendar, but also all the is
sues of November and December from
the time of subscription free. The new
volume will be the best The Companion
has ever published. Among the contri
butions already engaged are “The Little
Demons of War,” by Hon. John D. Long;
“Opportunities for Young Explorers,”
Sir Clements Markham ; “The Boy with
