Triumphs of Modern Surgery.
Wonderful things are done for the
human body by surgery. Organs are
taken out and scraped and polished
and put back. or they may be removed
entirely: bones are spliced; pipes
take the place of diseased sections
of veins; antiseptic dressings are ap
plied to wounds. bruises, burns. ani
like injuries before inflammation sets
in. which causes them to heal with
out maturation and in one-third the
time required by the old treatment.
Chamberlain's Pain Balm acts on this
same principle. It is *an antiseptic
and when applied to 4uch injuries,
causes them to heal very quickly. It
also allays the pain and soreness.
Keep a bottle of Pain Balm in your
home and it will save you time and
.noney. not to mention the inconven
ience and suffering which such injur
ies entail. For sale by Smith's Drug
