Stop

PAIN

in 3 minutes this new way

HERE is a new and totally different way to
treat a corn or a callus. One drop stops
all pain. Tou wear tight shoes, walk, dance,
in comfort, instantly and at once. Acta like a
local anaesthetic; really amazing.

Then soon the corn shrivels and loosens.
Tou peel it off with your fingers, like dead
ekin. No more dangerous paring.

Works alike on any corn or callus, no matter
where it is, how old or how painful. Ask your
druggist for "Gets-It." You will be delighted.
