Vou will stop the paring, stop the old-time treat- ments. You will deal with corns ia a scientific way. You will take them out, with no soreness, no pain, no inconvenience. Nearly half the corns in the country are now ended by Blue-jay— a million corns a month. Why wait ? Other ways, as you well know, don't really end a corn. Why don't you try this easy, painless, most effective way ? Why don't you try it now?
