have been standing fur any great length
of time; and while theio Is no great
cause for anslety from that souiee dui
Ing the winter mouths, when the weather
stay? cold, yet If time should be a con
tinued open winter, the effect would be
about the same as during the summer
months; then fue. it Is bet to be on the

to that end. Stall today.
All nibbNIi that Is taken nv.av now
will be just so much lrgs to be disposed

When Scott's Emulsion
makes the consumptive gain
flesh it is curing his consump
tion. Exactly what goes on inside
to make the consumptive gain
weight when taking Scott's
Emulsion is still a mystery.
Scott's Emulsion does some
thing to the lungs too that re
duces the cough. More weight
and less cough always mean
that consumption is losing its
influence over the system.
Scott's Emulsion is a relia
