One side reads, "CANADA // POST CARD - CARTE POSTALE // Dr. L. Seal Holmes, // 241 Queen's Ave., // London, Ont."; the other side reads: "IN "RHEUMATIC" PAINS // OXO-ATE "B" // (Calcium OrthoIodobenzoate) // For those patients who complain of vague // "rheumatic" pains, Oxo-ate "B" is an effec- // tive analgesic and palliative. Moreover, its // prompt use in the acute stages may help to // prevent the development of a severe, crippling // arthritis. // With the new 40 tablet package, Oxo-ate "B" // is one of the most inexpensive antiarthritics // available to your patients. And its safety makes // it ideal for those cases where treatment must // be continued over a considerable period of time. // SMITH, KLINE & FRENCH LABORATORIES PHILADELPHIA AND MONTREAL // Canadian Distributors: THE LEEMING, MILES CO., LTD., MONTREAL // EST. S.K.F. 1841 // OB:PCD."
