" Of the many preparations before tha

is none, within the range of my experi

followed by terrible coughs. About four
years ago, when so afflicted, I was ad
vised to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and
to lay all other remedies aside. I did
so, and within a week was well of my
cold and cough. Since then I have
always kept this preparation in the
bouse, and feel comparatively secure."
