Better Than a Blanket

Better Than a Blanket.

Fred: By jove I was frozen in bed last night. I'm sure I'm getting a cold.

Mother: I'll give you an extra blanket.

Fred: Yes, but what I want now is a dose of Baxter's Lung Preserver.

Most mothers make a point of always having “Baxter's” handy, summer and winter. Mothers know how quickly “Baxter's” relieves colds.

“Baxter's” is also unique for its tonic properties. 4/6, 2/6, and 1/6 from all chemists and stores.*

In the heart of the gold country of Otago, South Island, New Zealand. A scene on the famous Skippers Road. Skippers is the early diggers’ name for a rich alluvial goldfields area, a very wild spot in the gorge of the Shotover River, which yielded much wealth as far back as 1862. The road from Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu, crosses the Dan O'Connell Range and overlooks the turbulent Shotover for many miles. Skippers is said to have been named after a goldfields pioneer, Captain Duncan, whose party was one of the first to prospect the Shotover Gorge. The place is attracting great attention again from gold-miners. (Rly. Publicity photo.)
