point at tho extreme end of R indall's
Island, when the alarm of fire was

TRIUMPHS OF MODERN SUR
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 seotions of veins;
antiseptic dressings are applied to
wounds, bruises, burns and like inju
ries before inflammation sets In, which
causes them to heal without matura
tion 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
such injuries, causes tbem 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 money, not to mention the incon
venience. For sale by Laurens Drug
