Par acamph is recommended as a modern scientific treatment for all Rheumatic Swellings and Neuralgic troubles. It re lieves on Nature’s plan. That is when applied it opens the pores, penetrates directly to the seat of the ailment soothing the inflamed skin, musclea and joints re ducingt he swelling by removing the con gestion, drawing out the fever and inflam mation by inducing sweating.

Snnnyside Mother’s’Club B KEYSTONE OF Kimball Riano STRUCTURE. The sale of the Kimball Piano is the keystone of its unsurpassable quality, the founda' tion of its great musical worth, the cause of its popularity with artists and musicians. Perfect piano scale-making is a mathematical problem figured out by sound waves to the merest fraction of a second. Not all piano makers strive for perfection along this line (many making no pre tense), but out of the few who have nearly reached the goal, Kimball is Prominent. One of the most perfect musical scales is displayed in the cultivated human voice. An imperfect scale piano is like a person who cannot sing correctly—it’s worse because all do not claim to sing. It costs money to cultivate the voice, it costs more money to perfect a piano scale. The cost to produce a perfect Kimball scale has been no less than that of °ther of the recognized artistic pianos of the world, yet because of the advantages of the largest output from any factory, we are able to sell the Kimball at a very moderate price, quality considered The Kimball Bystem and easy payment plan brings it within reacn of all. ; Call or write for Catalogues, prices and terms.
