The Same Old Story
J. A. Kelly relates an exper
ience similar to that which has
happened in almost every neigh
borhood in the United States
and has been told and re-told
by thousands of others. He says :
"Last summer I had an at
tack of dysintery and purchased
a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy,
which I used according to di
rections and with entirely satis
factory results. The trouble
was controlled much quicker
than former attacks when I us
