prevent Pneumonía Prevention is always better than cure, even when cure is possible. But so many times pneumonia is not cured that prevention becomes the natural act of that instinct of selfpreservation which is " the first law of nature." Pneumonia can be prevented and is of ten cured by the use of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. "Some yeara ago I had a severe cold and was threatened with pneumonia. I could neither eat nor sleep, and was in a wretched condition. I procured a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and took it according to the directions, and at the end of fif teen daysw as as well and sound as before the attack. I have recommended it in many cases of pneumonia since, and have never known it to fail in effecting a cure." JOHN HENRY, St. Joseph, La. " I was attacked with a cold that settled on my lungs, and defied the skïll of my phyeicians so that they considered me incurable. At last I began to use Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and was entirely cured after having taken two bottles." FRANaSCO A. SEVERIANO, Taunton, Mass. Ayer's Ctcrri Pícwhi is put np in half-size bottles at half price - 50 cents.
