MAGISTRATE SPEAKS FOR ZAM-BUK  Magutrate I'erry, of Goldfields, B.C, believes in making a  good thing known. Writing of Zam-Luk, the great household  balm, he says:���������."After a very lair trial J have pruved Zam-Buk  eminently satisfactory. In my case it cured a ekiu rash of five  tears' standing which no doctor had been able to do any goat  for. I woald certainly encourage any person to keep Zam-Buk  in hit home." The magistrate isquite right. Evety home needs  Zam-Buk! Unequalled for cuts, burns, bruises, eczema, blood  poisoning and all skin diseases. All stores and druggists sell it at  50 cents a box.  Sure cure for piles.  DON'T NEGLECT THAT SORE!  A Chicago man has just died from blood poisoning arising from neglect of a small sore. Don't  neglect a cut, a patch of eczema, or an open sore  of any kind. The air is lull of poison germs,  waiting to start up their evil results in neglected  sores, wounds, etc. In Zam-lluk is safely. Zam-  Buk is so highly antiseptic that applied to sny  skindiseasc or injury it makes blood poisoning impossible. In using1 Z.un-l!uk you have three  processes gning on at once fur Zam-Buk is healing  soothing and antiseptic.    Try it without  delay.  A GENUINE OFFER.  TEST ZAM-BUK AT PUB EXPENSE!  We appreciate the position taken by the man ot woman who  '"gays:.���������" If your preparation is what you claim, you should  have no objection to letting us try it before spending our money  on it." To every person taking this view we say, send one cent  stamp (to pay return postage) and name and date ol this paper  to Zam- Buk Co., Toronto, and we will mail you a fre������ trial box  of Zam-lluk. Zam-Buk is purely herbal, suitable for the delicate  skin of little children, yet powerful enough to heal chronic sores  of long years' standing.
