The introduction of Peps, the famous, new breatheable remedy for coughs, , colds and chest troubles, has revolutionized the treatment of these ailments. Previou.sly, when suffering from any of thcK!, It was customary to dose oneself with drugs, which were not only harmful, but pracfically useless, because, being generally in liquid-form, they'did'not reach the lungs and chest, but the stomach-. Thinking people, long ago, realized that any remedy that was to reach the lungs direct m\ist be in breatheable form, but for'lack of a better treatment the old-fashioned method of swallowing liquids into the stomach continued until science overcame the difficulty by producing Peps. Peps is a breatheable medicine in tablet form  and the new Peps.treatment is so simple iind inexpensive that it is within the reach of all. 'Vou simply dissolve a Pep in -your mouth, and the medicinal fumesi which are 'given off, mingle with the breath and arP carried down to the remotest parts of ttie tliroat, bronchial tubes and lungs.- These medicinal fumes aro antiseptic, healing and strengthening. They stop a cough by destroying the germs which cause the inflnm-mation and consequent irritation. They clear the breathing passages, of phlegm-which makes them so splendid for bronchitis-and they .soothe and strengthen all the delicate membranc.ii of cliest and breathing passages, fortifying tlicm both against Infection and sudden changes of temperature. Peps are free from all trace of opium, laudanum, paregoric, or any other harmful drug, and are therefore best for children's coughs and colds, Writo for FREE trial package. , THIS WONDERFUL MEDICINE PROVIDES a natural cure for couehs, -jolds, sore and relaxed throat, bronchitis, larynfi^tis, -wealc chest, catarrh, hoarseness, children's cOiighn and colds, croup and other thi-oot and chest ailments.
