tation of the company, and went to their
laboratory and let Mr. Sweet apply the
remedies. The result was truly wonder?
ful. Instead of Irritating and causing mo
pain, as other remedies bad done, Its ef?
fects were soothing in the extreme, uud if
it bad not given mo n euro I shoultl
have been fully satisfied, ns it allayed
tho swelling to such a lurgo degree, and
relieved tho pain to such an extent that I
was able to steep at night. Hut this Is not
all. 1 had not beeu using it three days
