GENERAL WAI NEWgS Amsterdam, Jan, 15. The '"Nord Deutscher Allgemeine Zeitung" states :--"The Kaiser's let ter to Dr. Hollweg on October 31 proves his .honest desire for peace. In it he wrote :--'It is clear. that the enemies' peoples, caught by war"' psychosis, supported by lies sand deceit, -do not possess a -man able and firm-enough to pek to liberate the world.

POISONED WITH RUSTY NAIL. FESTERED HAND AND FOOT HEALED BY ZAM-BUK. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

POISONED WITH RUSTY NAIL. FESTERED RAND AND FOOT HEALED BY ZAM-BIK . For everyday accidents Zam-Buk is the worker's best friend. It soothes and heals as nothing else will, because it is so powerfully 4n tiseptic and medicinal. Zam-Buk is not merely a Quick healer, but it clenses and purifies a wound tho roughly before healing it up. It doesn't lock bad matter up in a sore, but draws it all out. Mr. Peter Mann, of 145 William-street, Sydney, says:- "I hurt my hand with a nail, which poisoned it. The place was extremely painful, and my arm l. came so inflamed that I was laid up. I quite thought I was in for a very bad time, but after I had applied Zam-Buk, the inflammation went, down' and the pain was easier. Zam-Buk cooled the angry place, drew out the poison, and set up thorough natural healing. "Another time I fell and knocked my foot against something sharp, which pierced my boot and set up inflammation. My foot was so bad that I could only wear a boot wjth the upper cut out. I tr...
