The ancients believed tbat rheuma
tsm was tbe work of a demon within a
man. Any one who baa bad an attack
of sciatic or ioflamatory rheumatism will
agree that the i; Action is demoniac
enough to warrant toe belief. It bea
oever been chimed tbat Chamberlain's
I'aln Balm would oast out demons, but
it will cure rheumatism, and hundreds
bear testimooy to tbe troth of tbis
statement. One application relieves the
pain, and this quick relief which it
affords is alone worth many times ite
