This kind of rough
talk will be heard less here in town if
people troubled with corns will follow
the simple advice of this Cincinnati
authority, who claims that a few drops
of a drug called freezone when applied
to a tender, aching corn or hardened
callous stops soreness at once, and
soon the corn or callous dries up and
lifts right* off without pain.
He says freezone dries immediately
and neve» inflames or even irritates
the surrounding skin. A small bottle
of freezone will cost very little at any
drug store, but will positively remove
every hard or soft corn or callous
from one’s feet. Millions of America’s
women will welcome this announce
ment since the inauguration, of the
high heels. If your druggist doesn't
have freezone tell him to order a small
bottle for you.—Adv.
No man or woman who eats meat
regularly can make a mistake by
flushing the kidneys occasionally, says
a well-known authority. Mept forms
uric acid which clogs the kidnsy pores
so they sluggishly filter or strain only
part of the waste and poisons from the
blood, then you get sick. Nearly all
rheumatism, headaches, liver trouble,
nervousness, constipation, dizziness,
sleeplessness, bladder disorders come
from sluggish kidneys.
The moment you fee! a dull ache in
the kidneys or your back hurts, or if
the urine is cloudy, offensive, full of
sediment, irregular of passage or at

| about four ounces of Jad Salts from
any reliable pharmacy and take a

kidneys will then act fine. This fa

grapes and lemon juice, combined with

tions to flush clogged kidneys and
\ stimulate them to activity, also to neu
tralize the acids in urine so it no long
