Rub Youngsters' Colds Away
With "Outside" Vapor Treatment
Local Druggists Have Imported the Invention of a
North Carolina Druggist That Relieves Croup and
Cold Troubles by External Application.

Days' Trial and Your Drug

relief when she first tries the North
Carolina treatment, Tick's VapoRub,
nd finds that it is no longer neces
sary to "dose" the children with nau
seous medicines for croup or cold j ally relieved within fifteen minutes
and lungs. At the same time VapoRub
is absorbed through and stimulates
the skin taking out that tightness and
soreness in the chest.
VapoRub has a hundred uses in the
home for deep chest colds, sore
throat, bronchitis or incipient pneu
monia just apply well over the throat
and chest and cover with a warm,
flannel cloth. ; For head colds, hay
fever, asthma or catarrhal troubles
VapoRub can either be applied up the
nostrils or a little melted in a spoon
and the vapors inhaled. Croup is usu-
froubles. VapoRub comes in salve
form and when applied over the
throat and chest the body heat re
leases the ingredients in the form of
aporsV These vapors, inhaled with
sach breath, all night long, carry the
medication direct to the air passages
and an application at bedtime pre
vents a nignt attack.
All mothers are urged to take ad
vantage of the 30-day trial offer now
being made by the local druggist and
see for themselves just what VapoRub

organization here in Omaha which I
believe are an improvement on the
way things are done in Chicago," Mr.
He reported that the present short
age of material is due to the govern

plies, but would likely be relieved
after a short while and that then the
quota would be larger and the longer
working hours will then be resumed.
Work on sweaters for next winter is
one of the instructions given out by
Mr. Fuller. It is estimated that by
next winter 1,000,000 sweaters will be
worn out and new ones must be made
to replace them as well as to clothe
the new soldiers.
"No business in the world has ever
undergone such rapid expansion as
has the Red Cross, Mr. Fuller explain

supplies was estimated at $1,600,000
while in March it was valued at $12,
000,000. We had to contend with the
problems of factories scattered in
every town in the country, educating
workers, securing supplies. It is a
tribute to the men and women who
are part of the work that no single
