about it and the milk does not
slosh on the floor. We advise
you to see him and get one for
your wvife if you want to keep
her in a good humor and have
her do the churning, and by all
means get one If you have to
churn. You will have to come
after it as it Is too big to send
through the mall but not too
cumbersome or unhandy to
handle easily. They are light,
easily operated and a splendid
thing for the children as they
will love to do the churning if

A compound callous is the secondary
stage when it grows Inward and pre69&
es on the nerves, causing Intense palix.
Callouses never cure themselves but
always get worse, sometimes irritating
the whole nervous system. The follow
Ing is a most effective and
speedy cure "Dissolve two
tablespoonfuls of Calocide
in a basin of hot water.
Soak the feet in this for
full fifteen minutes, gently
massaging the sore parts.
(Less time will not give the
desired resultB.) The sore
ness will disappear Imme
diately and the callous can be easily
Peeled off. Repeat this for several
nights. A little olive oil rubbed into
skin Is very beneficial."
This Calocide Is a very remarkable
preparation for all foot ailments.
Bunions, corns and ingrowing nails get
Instant relief and are soon cured. Bad
smelling and sore feet need but a few
treatments. Calocide is no longer con
fined to doctors' use. Any druggist has
