Millions of people don't. If a corn appears, they put a Blue-jay on it. Never a pain after that. In 48 hours the corn disappears, and forever. Why don't you let Blue-j«y prove that? The way 1» ea»y, gentle, quick. It is scientific, and results are inevitable. ,Remember this- Corns are Needless One Blue-jay is sufficient on 91 per cent of all corns. On old, stubborn corns simply use another. Why pare coma and keep them? Why use harsh methods and risk soreness? Or ways that don't end corns ? Apply a Blue-jay and you know the corn will end. Never again will it bother. That ii proved a million times a month. Corn* are inexcusable today. a .m a emu A» Dr >4t.u BAUER ». BLACK, Cblc*(o and N«« YoA M.Ufl ofSurilc.) D,«Mlo«l. •»• !
