What True Merit Will Do. < The unprecedented sale of Bosohee's German Syrup within a few years, has astonished.,the world. It is without doubt the safest and best remedy ever discovered for the speedy and effectual cure of Coughs, Colds and the severest Lung troubles. It aota on an entirely different principle from the usual pro- soriatlous given by physicians, aa It does not dry up a cough and leave the disease stall in the system, but. on the .contrary removes tbe causa of the trouble, heals tbe parts affected and leaves them in a purely healthy condK tion. A bottle kept in the house for use when the diseases make their appearance, will save doctor's bills and a long spell of serldus illness. A trial will convince you of these facts.
