What we’ve all been waiting for……..
 SAVE YOUR LIVES BY TAKING
OWBRIDGE’S LUNG TONIC
THE MIGHTY HEALER
It has a power over disease hitherto unknown in medicine.  Are you at all Weakchested, or inclined to be Consumptive, with just a touch of Cough now and then?
“Try this wonderful Medicine.”  The Cough and Weakness will disappear as if by magic, and you will feel a strength and power you have never had before.
HAVE YOU A COUGH?
A DOSE WILL RELIEVE IT.
HAVE YOU A COLD?
A DOSE AT BEDTIME WILL REMOVE IT.
Bronchitis and Asthma it relieves instantly.
The Spasms of Coughing so dreadful in Whooping Cough become less with each dose of the medicine.
“I have much pleasure in certifying that your Lung Tonic is a most valuable remedy in cases for which it is recommended.  It first came under my notice at a patient’s house, and from curiosity I was induced to try its curative effects during a sharp attack of Bronchitis contracted by myself when travelling, and I conscientiously assure you that I found immediate relief.  I have since given it a place in my surgery, have prescribed it in several cases, and can thoroughly recommend it.  You are at liberty to use my name. – JOHN GREEN, M.R.C.S.L., Keadby, Yorks.”
