Serious Skiii Eruptions Are" Ende'd by Zarr.-Bjjk Mr. William of 1385 Elgin Avenue, Weston, Winnipeg, says: "As a. cure for skin diseases there is no- thing to equal Zam-Buk. Some pimples and sores broke out all over my face and defied- various remedies, from time to time, I applied to them. Not only, were 'these sores unsightly but they were very painful. For over two months I was afflicted in this way until I was advised to try Zarn-Buk. I found this balm was entirely differ- ent to tne ordinary remedies. It re- duced the irritanion, and the smarting pain. The sores from first being an- nointed witb the balm, grew less and less angry, and then began to dry off. In a short time, they ail disappeared."

C We started for a meeting in. tbe-Y1., M.C.A. last evening, and after jour- neying to the 'floor, made for the only light streaming from under a door at the end of the hall, but instead of invading a quiet and digni- fied session the most awful sight met our gaze real live things, suspended in mid-air, 'some face down on the floor, and others in topsy turvey positions. They- were evidently more frightened than we, but women's perverbial curiosity en- ticed us further arid then found we had intruded upon Miss Jones' phy- j sical culture class of business girls. After receiving a warm invitation to venture further; we were entertained for a few minutes with all sorts of exercises which were gone through with wonderful rapidity and grace to piano accompaniment. It is surpris- ing that after so short a period has elapsed since the beginning of the class so much has been accomplished. Hiss Jones' pupils arc nimble, lithe- soir.e and graceful. Everyone of them told me she immensely enjoyed the Thursday evening lessons and that they were proving beneficial to health. Undoubtedly if Miss Jones re- turns to L'ethbridge next fall a great many more girls and young matrons will, if the opportunity is offered, take the course.

Vedrine buckled down to the task of crossing the dreaded Somosierra Pass, which is feet high. Higher and-high- er he climbed until he reached an alti i-ucle of feet. The aviator then, straight as an arrow, flew over the crags and snow-capped peaks until he reached the immense plains of San Augustin.
