Why Colds are DaEgerous
You are often told to "beware of
a cold," but why? We will tell you:
Every cold weakens the lungs, low
ers the vitality and paves the way
for the more serious diseases. Peo

cold hangs on the greater the dan

eases, as a cold prepares the system
for the reception and development of
the germs of consumption, diptheria,
scarlet fever and whooping cough.
The quicker you get rid of your cold
the less the danger of contracting
one of these diseases. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy has a great reputa
