Rheumatism More than nine out of every ten cases of rheumatism are simply rheumatism of the muscles, due to cold or damp, or chronic rheumatism. In such cases no internal treatment is required. The free application of Chamberlain's Lini- mentis all that is needed, and it is certain to give quick relief. Give it a trial and see for yourself how quickly it relieves pain and soreness.
