It is 'used in more homes than any other cough remedy, because it (ires more prompt, positive relief. It's no trouble at all to mix and costs but a trifle. Into a pint bottle, pour 2% ounces of I'inci; then add granulated sugar syrup to make a full pint. Syrup is easily made with 2 cups of sugar and one cup of water, stirred a few mo- iftents until dissolved. No cooking needed. This saves two-thirds of the money usually spent for cough medi cine, and gives you a purer, better remedy. It never spoils, and tastes fine, instantly you feel its penetrating effect. It loosens the germ-laden phlegm, clears the air passages, and soothes and heals the inflamed membranes. Thia •three-fold action explains why it brings such quick relief in severe coughs. Pinex is a highly concentrated compound of Norway Pine, used for generations for its healing effect on throat • membranes. It is guaranteed to give prompt relief or money refunded.
