For Swollen Feet

Policemen, mail carriers, and others whose occupation keeps them on

their feet a great deal, often are troubled with chafed, sore and

blistered feet, especially in extremely hot weather, no matter how

comfortably their shoes may lit. A powder is used in the German army for

sifting into the shoes and stockings of the foot soldiers, called

Fusstreupulver, and consists of 3 parts salicylic acid, 10 parts

starch and 87 parts pulverized soapstone.
