GET IT HRST HOT LAST
When a cold grips your system it ia
convincing proof that your condition is
weakened remember that It is risky
indeed to simply trust your strength to
throw it off, because neglected colds
have brought more serious sickness
than any other one thing, while weak
eningcatharticsandstimulatingsyrups are often depressing and dangerous.
The one best treatment for any cold
the one so often relied on when others
fail, is the powerful blood-nourishment
in Scott's Emulsion, which feeds the
very sources of bodily strength to sup
press the present cold and generate
strength to thwart further sickness.
Get Scotf s first, not last and Insist
on the genuine always free from al
cohol and injurious drugs.
