Emergency Medicines

It is a great convenience to have at hand reliable remedies for use in cases of accident and for slight injuries and ailments. A good liniment and one that is fast becoming a favorite if not a household necessary is Chamberlain’s Pain Balm.

By applying it promptly to a cut, bruise or burn it allays the pain and causes the injury to heal in about one-third the time usually required, and as it is an antiseptic it prevents any danger of blood poisoning. When Pain Balm is kept at hand a sprain may be treated before inflammation sets in, which insures a quick recovery. For sale by all dealers.

Jenkins Sons Music Co. of Kansas City, Mo., are making a special price of 25 cents per copy.

Sprains. S. A. Read, Cisco, Texas, writes, Mar. 11, 1901.

There was also another hanging scheduled for that day but upon the recommendation of the Board of Pardons the Governor granted the young man, whose name is Foley and who was convicted of murder, a respite of two weeks in order to enable his attorneys to produce some more evidence which they claim to have and which probably will save Foley’s life.

THEY SHOULD. “My honest conviction based upon my own experience and that “Hunts Cure” will cure a larger per cent of skin troubles, especially of an itching variety, than any other remedy, certainly those afflicted with any form of itch should try it.” J. O. Monroe Atchison Kan 50c per box
