For Skin Blotches
There is one remedy that seldom tails
to clear away all pimples, blotches and
other skin eruptions and that makes the
skin soft, clear and healthy.
Any druggist can supply you with
zemo, which generally overcomes all
skin diseases. Acne, eczema, itch, pim
ples, rashes, black heads in most cases
give way to remo. Frequently, minor
blemishes disappear overnight. Itching
usually stops instantly. Zemo is a safe,
antiseptic liquid, clean, easy to use and
dependable. It costs only 25c; an extra
large bottle, $1.00. It will not stain, is
not greasy or sticky and is positively
safe for tender, sensitive skins.

Returns up to noon gathered by the
United Press apparently established
250 votes for Wilson against 238 for

In the doubtful column at noon were
