the bosk towns in the Interior of

Dime that the Dominion governmenl
should give     Cranbrook the recogni-

Mr. Shas. Noble, of 375 Colonial
Avenue, 'Montreal, the assistant chief
operalor of the G.N.W. Telegraph
Co. and several of his family have
been cured of eczema by Zam-Buk, the
great herbal balm. He states the
facts as follows: "The disease started in the back of my hands in the
form of small sores and eruptions.
These were very irritating and when
rubbed and scratched turned Into very
painful sores. I tried waters, lotions
and salves, but the disease continued
to spread and I got. no relief- Then
t<i my alarm the eczema spread to
several of the children. The pain anh
irritation in all our cases was wry
great, and we were very much dis-
fceartrturd as all we tried proved unavailing. Zam-Buk was recommended and I obtained a supply. I tried
it first on a small patch of the eczema, and this showed so mueh improvement that I was convinced
Zam-Buk would do good if persevered
with, and therefore obtained a supply.
Eai* application greatly relieved the
Itching, pain and soreness, and it was
not- long before the eruptions and
sores dried up and disappeared. In
lew week;, irom commencing with
Zam-Buk every spot was removed.
"Tho children who had also taken
tbis disease were treated in the same
way and bave each been cured. Unlike all other preparations used, Zam-
Buk seemed to search to the roots of
the evil and it was really surprising
b«w -quickly tbe sores were healed,
In r.iy case and that- of my children
