SEEMS EVERYONE All Want To Try New Drug That Dries Up Corns So They Lift Out Good news spreads rapidly and druggists here are kept busy dispensing freezone, the ether discovery of a Cincinnati man, which is said to loosen any corn so it lifts out with the fingers. * Ask at any pharmacy for a q\iarter ounce of freezone, which will cost very little, but is said to be sufficient to rid one's feet of every hard or soft corn or callus. You apply just a few drops on the tender, aching corn and instantly the soreness is relieved, and soon the corn is so shriveled that it lifts out without pain. It is a sticky substance which dries when applied and never inflames or even irritates the adjoining tissue. This discovery will prevent thousands of deaths annually from lockiaw and infection heretofore resulting from the suicidal habit of cutting corns.-Advertisement. p t OUR MILK Is Absolutely Safe It is clarified and pasteurized.
