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 reliable drug store
---for instance, you never in your life saw a
bit of 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 I fsell. The price you will flndl
right, too.

Lockjaw, or totanr.s, is caused by a ba
cillus or gorm which exists plentifully in
si i eel dirt. It is inaetive so long as ex
posed to tho air, but when carried bo
neath tho skin, as in tho wounds caused
by percussion caps or by rusty nails, ?nd
when tho air is oxcluded tho germ is
roused, to activity and produces tho most
virulent poison known. Those germs
may be destroyed and all danger of lock

received. Pain Balm is antiseptio and
causes outs, bruises and like injuries to
heal without maturation and in one-third
