Dr. Jayne's Expectorant

Date: 1870 - 1890 | Identifier: LL02.
The front of this card depicts a young woman, wearing a red vest and skirt with a white blouse, knitting with a basket of knitting in her lap. A little girl stands behind the woman with her arms around her neck. Leaning against them both is a brown and white cat. The title of the picture is "My Mamma!". The reverse of the card states "that this card shows the depth of maternal affection and awakens responsive sympathy common to all mankind. It further states to always keep Dr. Jayne's Expectorant in your house. Why? Because in cases of a sudden cold or a severe cough, nothing else so quickly and so certainly gives relief or wards off more dangerous consequences. If suffering from bronchitis, asthma, croup, whooping cough or consumption, where can more certain relief be found or a greater prospect of a cure be secured then the use of this Expectorant in conjunction with Dr. D. Jayne's Alterative? The weak child can be helped by using Dr. Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge when its ailing and puny condition indicates that it is not gaining proper strength from its food; for this old-time remedy invigorates the stomach and by increasing its power of assimilation, stimulates the natural functions of the body. If worms are causing trouble, the Tonic Vermifuge certainly drives them from the body and removes the nests from which they are propagated. For the Dyspepsia and weak digestion of adults, try this Tonic and you will get rid of Nausea, Water Brash, Sick Headache, Sour Stomach, Flatulency, Heartburn and remove the common cause of Low Spirits."
