Jli you ever came face to face with a
germ, would you recognize it? Of
course it is not likely that you ever
will see a germ, unless you own a
tremendously powerful microscope, for
you would have to magnify one over
a thousand times to make it as big as
a pin head. But you should recognize
the fact that these tiny germs can get
into your blood streams through the
smallest cut, and give you typhoid
fever, ^ tuberculosis, lockjaw, mood
poisoning, and many more dangerous
and perhaps fatal diseases. There is
one sine safeguard against these
dangers — washing every cut, no
matter bow small, thoroughly with
liquid Borozone, the safe antisep-
tic. You can get Liquid Borozone at
