Wounds after Operation.

THE WONDERFUL HEALING QUALITIES OF ZAM-BUK ILLUSTRATED.

No more conclusive evidence of the wonderful healing and antiseptic qualities of Zam-Buk could be found than illustrated m the following statements made by. Mr F. Bellingtoa, by profession a gardener, residing m Buffalo Road, Ryde, near Sydney. This gentleman says:—" Two years ago, while following my occupation, I scratched my leg with a blackberry thorn, and took no notice of it. A fortnight later blood-poisoning sat m, and ran right up to my knee ; my leg was swollen, and as black as ink. The doctor tfhom I consulted advised me to at once go to Prince Alfred Hospital, which I did. I underwent an operation, and the doctor opened up my leg to the knee, but the blood-poisoning spread and ran right up into the groin, which necessitated a further operation. In all, the doctors opened up my leg m twenty-three placas, and inserted fourteen tubes. Even tlion the doctors ■were not satisfied with the state of the leg, and were on several occasions on the point of amputating it. But this I .was strongly against, preferring to die with my limbs intact, than live minus a lsg. For six months I was thus undergoing treatment m the hospital—at times m a comatose condition. For several weeks the hospital staff were very uncertain as to whether I would pull through. When I left the hospital the blood-poisoning had been practically removed, but owing to the sinews of my leg being contracted through being m an iron cradle for eleven weeks, I wa& forcod to walk on crutches for throe weeks, and subsequently used a stick. The leg appeared to ha doing nicely when I accidently gave it a knock. The resul s of this were dire. All the wounds broko out again, and the leg became very much inflamed, and swollen. I applied several treatments, but the results were not satisfactory, and hearing Zam-Buk so well scoken of, I decided to give it a tri;il. In less than 24 hours after the first application of Zam-Buk I found groinfc relief. The swelling nnd inflammation subsided,* and the wounds were soothed. I continued the Zam-Buk treatment tor a fortnight, by which time the wounds were completely healed, and the inflammation removed, and I was able to get back to work. My leg is now as sound as it ever was, bo much bo, that I attended several dances last season, to the astonishment of my acquaintances who were aware of the previous state of my leg. I fesl deeply grateful for what Zam-Buk has done for me, and will never lose an opportunity of recommending it to all. Zam-Buk is obtainable from all medicine vendors at la 6d or 3a 6d family awe, (containing nearly four times the quantity) or from The Zam-Buk Co 39 Pitt MryJ, Sydney.
