Ever notice, they always
go together sore heads
and sore feet?
Can't be helped. Don't blame them.
Poor you, with the tender feet, swollen
feet, sore feet, aching paining feet
you with corns and bunions !
Don't! Don't handicap yourself
don't let your feet bother you and all the
people you come in contact with noth
ing meaner than a. grouch.
Don't see the world through your
trouble-making feet. Get Well! Feel
Good! Make your feet glad. It's easy
if you buy a box of JIKFY, the footr
tonic. Simply drop a tablet in hot water
and presto away goes your sore feet,
your sore head you feel good all over.
It is easy, is simple, is almost miracu
lous. There's only one way to do it, but
a sure one use JIFFY. Don't use
powders or salves or ointments or tablets
that only partly dissolve and clog up and
stop up the pores of the skin. Use J I FF Y

and sweetens the feet, opens the pores,
draws out the bad, puts in the good.

from behind the anchored boat will
loosen the sands and allow the cur
rent to carry the bar away.
