A look of something like despair came into

lonably the strain of that trial shortened Senator
'latt's life. He presided with dignity and with
1ie rarest ingpartiality. The hours of the court's
ession were long, and yet the aged Connecticut
enator refused to leave his seat .even for the
otting of necessary food until the session of
ach day was ended.
Prior to the opening of the trial Senator Platt
tood in the vice-pi'esident's place and told his
blleagues that it was their duty not to lose a
ord of the testimony lest they bring in an un
nist verdict. The result of this was that with
no or two exceptions the senators sat in their
eats andl heard important and unimportant testi
nony, listeniug to ev'ery argument of counsel,
and lest anything should escape them they made
nsistent demand that every witness should speak
10 that all men in the c'hamber might hear.
It is probable that. oefor'o one-quarter of the
rial proceedings of the case against Charles
swaynae was ended every senator had made up
lis mind as to the guilt or the innocence of the
iecused, but the belief of guilt or innocence
ormed early did not prevent the attendance of
thy member of that high court during the entire

Ils acquittal was not madle a party matter, as
nany feared it was to be. On mome of the counts

QURED ITCHING AND BURNINd
"I was taken with the itch in April,
1904, and used most everything. I
had a friend pay me a visit from
Cumberland, and she advised me to
use Cuticura Remedies which I did.
The cure was certainly quick, and I
use them to this day. I had it terri
bly under my knees. I only used one
box of pills, but two boxes of Cut
cura Ointment, and I use the Cuti
cura Soap all the time. .1 hope this
will benefit others, as it has me, after
Dr. - and others could do noth.
ing for me." (Signed) Miss Lu John
son, 1523 Ninth St., N. W., Wash
ington, D. C., April 3, 1910.
In a later letter Miss Johnson adds:
"The trouble began with an eruption
under my knees, and extended up
wards toward my waist, until I was
not able to sit down. It kept a con
stant itching and burning all the time,
night and day. I went to my doctor,
but he could do me no good after I
do not know how many medicines he
gave me, and then told me I would
be compelled to go to a skin special
ist, which I positively refused to do. I
cried all tho time. Finally I made
up my mind to try Cuticura Rem
edies, and tried Cuticura Pills, Oint
mient and Soap, and wa. entirely
cured of the itching three days after
I started using them. The healing
took about eight days. I consider
Cuticura Remedies marvelous, and
would recommend them everywhere."

out the world. Send to Potter Drug
