Kidneys cause backache? No! They
have no nerves, therefore cannot cause
pain. Listen 1 Tour backache is
caused by lumbago, sciatica or a Btrain,
and the quickest relief is soothing,
penetrating "St. Jacobs Oil." Rub it
right on the ache or tender spot, and
instantly the pain, soreness, stiffness
and lameness disappears. Don't stay

"St. Jacobs Oil" from your druggist
and limber up. A moment after it is
applied you'll wonder what became of
the backache, sciatica or lumbago pain.
"St. Jacobs Oil" stops any pain at once.
It is harmless and doesn't burn or dis

It's the only application to rub on a
