THE HANDS IN COLD WEATHER. I The effect of cold and frost on the more exposed portions of the body, such as the hands, is to produce a general lowering of the vitality of the skin, due to the blood-flow to the skin being tem- porarily arrested. Consequently a breaking-down of the skin tissue takes place, accompanied by an unple,.IL.Ant tingling and feeling of numbness. Th-etie well-known ænsations are nearly always associated with raw, chapped hands, chilblains, frostbite, etc. It is not the annoyance alone which makes thetse conditions a source of grave trouble to house- wives ana outdoor workers in cold and damp, it is the ever-present danger of blood-poisoning or septicaemia. Irritation and inflammation round about the knuckles and the back of the hand, or any other parto where the cracks or scaly roughness may have arisen, are the ifrist. sign's that the trouble is serious, and the greatest promptitude should be exercised in treating the case. The first step w to lessen the irritation. The affected part should be cleansed of any dirt with the heln of warm water and a soft towel, then gently anoint I with Zam-Buk, smearing with the fingers. or spreading on a piece of clean linen after the manner of a poultice. Zam-Buk will be found to materially reduce, and soon altogether end the inflammation and pain. Swellings go down, and the skin quickly assumes a velvet-like surfaoe. Zam-Buk should be applied liberally night and morning, and it is a good thing to wear through the night an old glove ventilated bv slits in the palm, and inside of which more of the balm be?n smeared, thus assuring the complete absorption of the healing and antiseptic ingre- dMnt?s. Zam-Buk is particularly recommended for chapped hands, chilblains, chafed skin, and all ^similar winter troubles, on account of its absolute purity and wonderful refinement, and because of ite undeniable power of creating new, healthy skin. Zam-Buk is unequalled for eczema, ulcers, ring- worm, psoriasis, scalp diseases, scurf. sores of all sorts, diseased ankles, wore heads and backs, sore throat and chest, sore faces and lips, aching feet, swollen joints, cuts, lacerated wounds, bruises, burns, scalds, stiff joints, sprains, festerings, gatnerings. and poisoned wounds. Of all chemists, Ln Is. ld" and 2s. 9d. boxes (2s. 9d. box contains nearly four times the Is. lid.), or post froe for the same price from the Zam-Buk Co., 4. Red Cross-street, London, E. C.
