The school building is crowded so a new building will soon now" A.R. s. Burdett has a word to say on the value of Zam-Buk as a. .balm for the ite and tender skin of children. Every mother should note this. Sho says Mrs. delicate and tender Zam-Bu-k is especially useful where there are children. It seems to heal their cuts and wounds and scratches in -wonderful form. Almost as soon as applied, it ends the pain and smarting and gives the little ones ease. I would not like to be without it in the house." WHAT ZAM-BUK IS AND WHAT IT CURES. Zam-Buk is a balm composed entirely of healing herbal essences. It is free from ;he rancid animal fats and poisonous rr.ineral substances found in ordinary salves and ointmtuts. Unlike these it never goes rancid, never stains, bun is always sweet, pure and fresh. It cures cuts, bums and scalds; heals ulcers, abscesses, poisoned wounds, chapped hands, frost bite, cold sores, etc. Rubbed on to the chest in cases of cold it ends the feeling of tightness and aching. It is also a cure for piles. All stores and druggists sell at 50c a box or from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto." Send this coupon and Ic. stamp to Zam- Co., To- ronto, and we will send you sairmle box. Irest of the province. Thc cout'. house, on the- hill, is a handsome structure, built of cut stone. The court-house is used for the holding of the district court, but the basement is occupied by the Cardston detach- ment of the R.N.W.M.P., consisting of Inspector DCS Mers, Sergeant Mey- lor and one constable. The inspector at Cardston also has supervision of i the police detachments at Twin Lakes, Boundary Creek and Big Bend. There are no doubt more police in this neighborhood, owing to its prox- 1 imity to the International Boundary, i and because of the need owing to cases arising out of attempts to evade the customs laws and fugitives from justice trying to get across the line to avoid arrest or capture.

The other day there was such, a heavy mail at the Cardston post of- fice that the wickets were closed for four hours. During that time no stamps could be bought or no money orders procured. This was just in the middle of the day when the set- tlers are in-town and want to get their business- done before going home. At last the wicket opened, and as school was out there was a continued crush at the wickets for some time. Thc business is increasing so much that more assistants are needed.
