to them was indicative that they wished a scrap, and a rough house started.
Altogether thero wore twenty-five

The reception accorded to that old-
time favorite "Ten Nights in a Bar-
Hooin" on its appearance here last
Saturday was nulto different to tbe
manner in which it wus received u
dacade or more ago and as far as
lhe size of the crowd was concerned
more nearly resembled a frost. "Ten
Nights iu a Bar-Room" apparently litis
outlived its welcome, at least in
territory which has already voted In
favor of prohibition. The supporting
company wus fair though, not as well
adapted to tlie parts as ou Iheir pre
vn.iis appearance hen- in "Oilicei- tifiU."
Tbe above represents the Dumber of yenrs spent in fruitless efforts to cure a bad case of eczema
witb ordinary ointments, compared with the time it took Zam-
Buk to effect a complete and permanent cure.
Thii was the experience of Mr.
II. C. Buckley of 461 East Broadway, Portland. Ore. Writing t»
the Zam-Buk Co., he says: "For
fifteen years 1 suffered with a bad
case of eczema, and used all kinds
of so-called "cures" and treatments, but nothing waa capable
of curing me until I tried Zam-
Buk. This wonderful balm, however, completely cured me In less
than a year, and nol only so, but
1 have b.i.i no return of the dls*
ease. I strongly recommend Zam-
Buk to anyone afflicted aa 1 was."
Tbis is but one of the hundreds
of canes when Znm-IUik has effected a cure when everything
else failed. Tbe reason Is easily
explained. Zam-Ruk being unusually refined—containing absolutely no unlmfil fats or mineral
drugs such as arc contained In
ordinary ointments—is capable of
penetrating to the underlying
tissues where skin diseases have
their roots. Ordinary ointments,
on the contrary, never get beyond
the surface skin and so are incapable of effecting permanent cures.
Zam-Buk is just as good for
salt rheum, ringworm, bolls, ulcers, abscesses, blood-poisoning*,
piles, cuts, burns, scalds and all
skin Injuries. All druggists or

Here'* One on Jim Thistlebeak
The peaceful atmosphere which generally pervades the Roosville Valley
and International Boundary was somewhat rudely disturbed one day last
week with Queer and peculiar noises
which seemed to come from nowhere
and which gave the residents chilly
sensations. All sorts of notions and
thoughts entered the minds of the people, and one rustic climbed to the roof
of a barn and gazed long and anxiously towards the heavens expecting
every moment to see a hostile airship
hove in sight, but was doomed to disappointment, and is now suffering
from a distorted neck. Some of the
more venturesome inhabitants got together, and after holding a somewhat
hurried convocation, decided to go
further afield and investigate the mys-
[jhry, and arming themselves with pike
poles, cant hooks, hay forks and other
ancient weapons of warfare sallied
forth. After cruising around for some
little time the leader of the party
much to his amazement on climbing
ovr a fenco discovered the source of
alt the trouble stalled in the King's
Highway, and which on closer investigation proved to be none other thau
our old time friend and contemporary
Jim Thistlbeak of Elko with his Ford
Car which ho recently purchased.

Butter Has Again Gone Up in Price!
Dut I am going to lay In a stock of the Cranbrook nutter Company's finest Creamery
Butter that they are still offering at the old price. I am mighty particular about the
Butter I eat, it is so easily tainted, and unless made under the most perfect sanitary
conditions and with the most rigid care I would not have it at any price. When a local
concern like the Cranbrook Creamery stands behind every pound they turn out, with a
money back guarantee, I can fell confident that everything is all right.
For a limited time they offer the following low prices: —
SELKIRK BRAND CREAMERV MTTER-per lb. 45c; 8 lbs for $1.80
KOOTENAY BRAND CREAMERY BITTER—per lb SOc; 8 lbs for $1.45
Both are first quality Creamery Butter that we sell with a money-back guarantee if
not satisfactory. The Kootenay Brand is just Fresh Made, and many prefer it, but
both brands are first class.  These prices subject to change without notice.
