The most painful cases of rheumatism may bo
relieved by a few applications of Chamberlain's
Pnin Balm; its continued use will cure any case
no matter of how long standing. The record of
this pain relieving medicine is wonderful. It is
equally beneficial for lame back, pain in side,
shoulder lameness, and in all painful affections
requiring an external remedy. A trial will con
