COUGHING — ITS CAUSE AND CUKE.
Coughing is an involuntary effort to
expel irritating matter from the lungs
or bronchial passages, and is, therefore,
as necessary, at times, as vomiting is to
relieve the stomach of indigestible or
poisonous substances. As a general
rule, when the stomach is unburdened
of its contents, tlio retching ceases.
Not so with bronchial irritation, tin;
effect being liable to remain long after
the primary cause has been removed.
The reason of this is that, in the acts of
coughing and expectoration, the mucous
coating of tiie throat and air passages
becomes Inflamed and congested ; conse-
quently the inclination to cough and ex-
pectorate still continues and the delicate
tissue of the fauces are further irritated.
The great danger of a severe and pro-
tracted cough la iu tho liability either
to rupture a congested blood-vessel or
to cause an irritation and soreness that
may result in ulcerution of the lungs.
The obvious course of treatment is
to administer, first, an expectorant that
will assist iu loosening and bringing
away the phlegm; and, secondly, au
utiodyno to soothe the inflamed and irri-
tated membrane. To accomplish this
twofold purpose Is the design of all
rough-cures; but the danger witli most
of them is that they are so cloying
to the stomach as to seriously inter-
fere with the process of digestion ; con-
sequently, iu the effort to cure one
complaint, the patient is liable to con-
What, then, is best to be done? The
answer in; Take a medicine that is both
an anodyne ami an expectorant — one
which loosens the phlegm and soothes
the irritated membrane, but does not
interfere with, or endanger, the regular
functions of any other bodily organ.
Can such a remedy be found? We
reply unhesitatingly, it ran —in Ayer’s
Cherry Pectoral. For more than forty
years this preparation lias been in use,
and it is without doubt, flic safest
and mo“.t. efficacious of all cougU-cnres.
That it is so estimated by_tbe public is
evident from the fact that no other
SB preparation of the kind is in ftijekuni-
versai demand. As l ------”
