Say good-bye to your corns the very

after TIZ than if there had never been a
blemish on your feet. Doesn't that sound
good to you? Doesn't it? Then read
"Tho corns on elther of my tocs

Just use TIZ. Its not like anything

It's the only foot remedy ever giade
which acts ot*i tho principle of drawing
out all the' poisonous exudations which
cause sore feet. Powders and other reme?
dies merely clog up the pores. TIZ cleans
them out and keeps them clean. It works
right off. You will feel better the very

you can forget you ever had sore feet.
There is nothing on earth that can com
