Why Suffer from Rheumatism.
Why suffer from rheumatism when one
application of Chamberlain's Pain Balm
will relieve the pain? The quick relief
which this liniment affords makes rest
and sleep possible, and that alone ?B
worth many times its cost. Many who
have used it hoping only for a slant re
lief from suffering* have been happily
surprised to find that after awhile the
relief beoame permanent. Mrs. V. H.
Leggett, of Yum Yum, Tennessee, U. S.
A., writes: "I am a great sufferer from
rheumatism, all over from head to foot,
and Chamberlain's Pain Balm is the only
thing that will relieve the pain." For
