A. TAYLOR HARBARD. Commissioner for Oaths." At first," said Mr Denton to the pressman previously, it was thought I had caught some loathsome disease from the dirty people I had to handle, and by whom I was often bitten. My hands swelled up to a great size, and some- times got so hard that I have rasped the lumps down with a small file, I couldn't open them, and all the creases of my palms would burst open into wide cracks, which bled very much. The irritation was intense. I used to show my hands to the Divisional Surgeons, and other doctors whom I was con- stantly meeting in my duties. The disease was called filthy eczema,' and was authoritatively pronounced incurable by many. One police surgeon shewed me marks of the same disease upon himself, and said If I could cure thifi don't you think I would ? It isn't to be cured.' I went to St. Bartholomews, but the verdict there, too, was No cure.' My hands got so bad that I couldn't hold a prisoner properly, and as it defied all kinds of treatment, I had eventually to leave the force, unfit for further service.' I lived in enforced retirement for nineteen years, and found no way of escape from my sufferings during all that time. About ten weeks ago I tried Zam-Buk, the eczema being so bad just then that I would have tried anything that came my way. Two or three dressings with Zam-Buk made them quite easy. so I got a large box. Perseverance with the balm effected a complete cure, and my hands are now natural in appearance, soft, and strong." Zam-Buk is indispensable in workshop and home.
