How To Quickly
Stop Bad Coughs
It Is often surprising how quickly the
heaviest cough disappearswhen treated
by a remarkable new method.
Here isthemethod,based on thefamOUsDr.King'sNewDiscoveryforCoughs:
You simply take one teaspoonful and
hold it In your throat for 15 or 20 seconds
before swallowing it. The pre

only soothes and heals irritation, but
also loosens and removes the phlegm
and congestion which are the real cause
of the coughing. So the severest cough
soon disappears completely.
Dr. King's New Discovery is for
coughs, chest colds, bronchitis, spasmodic
croup, etc. Fine forchildren, too
?no harmful drugs. Very economical,
as the dose is only one teaspoonful. At

"The man remembered something

shut this door behind him. The dog
was arleep in the sitting room.
