Looking back over 'the hours

First Stop Pain w
When pain comes, stop it.
Be ever ready 'to f stop it
quickly, night or day. Don't
suffer any pain which a mo
ment of rubbing 'can' stop.
These include pains allied
to rheumatism, to soreness,
to lameness, to 'chest colds.
They can be stopped at once.
For 65 years they have been
stopped by rubbing with St.

does that. But don't suffer
