PA PCD B^^t S. tt aX Now is the Time to Beware of Contagious Colds! At a treacherous time like this, with contagious colds all around you, what you dp today may save you and your family a lot of sickness, worry and trouble later. Follow these simple rules of health: Live normally. Avoid excesses. Eat simple food. Drink plenty of water. Keep elimination regular. Take some exercise daily—preferably outdoors. Get plenty of rest and sleep. Then use these two time-tested* treatments when needed. AT THE FtBST SNIFFLE. SNEEZE OR SICN OF NASAL IRRITATION . . .put a few drops of Wefts Va-tro-iiol up each nostril right awav. This helps to > prevent many colds from developing, because Va-tro-nol is expressly designed to help Nature's own defenses against colds. (If a head cold causes stuffiness, you'll find that a few drops of Va-tro-nol helps clear the clogging mucus and makes breAthing freer and easier.) IF A CHEST C0LD «• C9UMINC COLO DEVELOPS (some.colds get by all precautions) depend on Vicks VapoRub to relieve miseries. Rub VapoRub on throat, chest and back and cover with a wanned cloth. VapqRub acts to bring relief 2 ways at once. It stimulates surface of chest and back like a warming poultice. At the same time it releases helpful medicinal vapors that are breathed direct into the irritated air passages. Both Va-tro-nol and VapoRufa have been tested through years of use in millions of homes. When you use these two medicines you are not experimenting, you are not taking needless chances. Remember: If the condition of the cold fails to respond quickly to treatment—or if more serious trouble is indicated—call your family physician right away. In the meantime be prepared! Get a bottle of Vicks Va-tro-nol and a jar of Vicks VapoRub today—have them handy, ready to use. Phone 26 for 24 hour AMBULANCE SERVICE We urge you to inquire about our Burial Insurance.
