How To Quickly
Stop Bad Coughs i
It is often surprising how quickly the
heavies-:cough disappears when treated t
by a remarkable new method. v
Here is the method, based on the famous
Dr. King's NewDiscoveryJorCoughs:
You simply take one teaspoonful and '
hold it in your throat for 15 or 20 sec- d
ends before swallowing it. The prescription
has a double action. It not
only soothes and heals irritation, but
also loosens and removes the phlegm
and congestion which are the real causa
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 for children, too
?no harmful drugs. Very economical,
as the dose is only one teaspoonful. At
all good druggists. YAsk for
