It combines t-vven major helps in one—the best helps known lo science. It Is made lor quick relief, for safety. Mild coughs often yield to lesser helps. No one cnn tell. No one knows which factor will do most for any certain cough. So careful people, more and more, are using Crcomulsion for nny cough that ttarts. The cost is a little more than a s'i;gle help. But your druggist guarantees It. so il costs nothing if it falls to bring you quick icllef. Coughs are danger signals. for safety's sake, deal with them n> tho best way known. —Adv.
