Soap Caution.
It is needless, perhaps, to caution people
against using impure Toilet and Bath Soaps.
No one uses harmful soaps willingly, but
many use them unwittingly. You are most
apt to get right soaps at a relia ble drug store
---for instance, you never in your life saw a,
bit cf genuine Castile soap sold anywhere but
at drug stores.
I am something of a crank in this mat
ter of purity, and guarantee the quality of
every soap ? isell. The price you will find
right, too.

Causo of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or totanos, is caused hy a ba
' cillus or gorm which oxists plentifully in
HUeot dirt. It is inactive so long as ox
posed to tho air, but when carried be
neath tho shin, as in tho wounds caused
by percussion caps or by rusty nails, and
when tho air is excluded tho gorm ia
roused, to activity and produces tho most
virulent poison known. These gnrms
may bo destroyed and all danger of lock
jaw avoided by applying Chamberlain's
Pain Balm freely as soon as tho injury is
recoived. Pain Balm is antiseptic and
causes outs, bruises and like injuries to
heal without maturation and in one-third
the time required by tho usual treatment.
It is for sale by J. W. Boll, Walhalla;
