An- Relief At Last ForYourCough Creomulsion relieves promptly because it goes right to the seat of the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm, and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes. Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with the understanding you must like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to nave your money back. CREOMULSION for Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis and the National Guard maneuvers, together with he better general state of the '.uard, have put many units far ahead of the point that might be expected. Recreation facilities are in an unfinished state in many camps, the movie tents and recreation hells being as yet not ready and under-equipped with books, magazines, and games. But that is plainly temporary. There is little whoop-la, and no observable whipping up of hatred against nny particular country. The whole spirit is businesslike and serious. Field problems arej attacked by even the youngest re-1 cruits with deadly earnestness and clear determination to learn to be soldiers, and do it right. No high-flown sentiments, no incendiary scngs. The whole army seems! to have something of the spirit J cf a young aircraft mechanic who was sitting at a soda fountain in | j Columbus. Ga.. when he was asked j ' what prompted him to "join ,up." "Well, they need an army, don't they?" he asked, gruffly, scarcely; locking up from his soda. "Well,j that's me."
