For Itching Torture
| There is one remedy that seldom
J fails to stop itching torture and relieve
| skin irritation and that makes the skin
! soft, clear and healthy.
! Any druggist can supply you with
! zemo, which generally overcomes all
• skin diseases. Acnc, eczema, itch, pirn
! pies, rashes, blackheads in most cases
! give way to zemo. Frequently, minor
; blemishes disappear overnight. Itching
| usually stops instantly. Zemo is a safe,
; antiseptic liquid, clean, easy to use and
I dependable. It costs only 35c; an extra
large bottle, SI.OO. It will not stain, is
I not greasy or sticky and. is positively
I safe for tender, sensitive skins.
