fails to stop itching torture and relieve
skin irritation, and that makes the skin
soft, clear and healthy.
Any druggist can supply you with
Zcmo, which generally overcomes skin

blackheads, in most cases give way
to Zemo. Frequently, minor blemishes
disappear overnight ' Itching usually
stops instantly. Zemo is a safe, anti
septic liquid, clean, easy to use and
dependable. It costs only 35c; an extra
large bottle, $1.00. It will not stain, it
not greasy or sticky and is positively
safe for tender, sensitive skins.

Omaha Begins Fight For
Cut in Lumber Rail Rates
The high cost of lumber, which is
partly ( to blame for the dullness in
building, will be shaved down if the
Interstate Commerce commission
heeds the appeal for lower rates on
lumber products to 'Omaha. .The
traffic bureau, of the Chamber of
Commerce Jias forwarded a com
plaint, on rates from the Pacific
northwest and asking an equaliza
tion with the freight charges to
Minneapolis and St. Paul. .
For many years the freight
charges on lumber to Omaha have
been 7 cents a 100 pounds higher
than Minneapolis has to pay. This
amounts to $1.80 a thousand feet.
About 75 per cent of the lumber
used here comes from the northwest,
ami the saving by the new rate
would amount to more than $60,000
