For Itching Torture J
There is one remedy that seldom
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. Eczema, itch, pimples,
rashes, blackheads in most cases give
way to Zemo. Fnsuently, minor blem
ishes disappear o'.v night. Itching us
ually stops instantly. Zemo is a safe,
antiseptic liquid, clean, easy to use and
dependable. It costs only 35c; an ex
tra large bottle, $1.00. It will not stain,
is not greasy or sticky and is positively
safe for tender, sensitive skins.

Newport, Or., Aug. 21. The season
at this beach is without doubt the best
that has yet been seen here. The travel

the past and is growing in volume daily

tue summer will yet be extended an
other two weeks at least, during the

a good deal varied. Sunday evening it
was cool enough to make an overcoat
