Itching Burning Scaly
and Speedily Cured by
mmmmm' S .JM wP
y. The itching and burning I suffered in my feet and limbs for three years
were terrible. At night they 'were worse and would keep me awake a
greater part of the night. I consulted doctor after doctor, as I wa3 travel
ling on the road moat of my time, also ono of our city doctors. None of iho
doctors knew what the trouble was. I got a lot of the different samples of
the medicines I had been using. I found them of so many different kinds
that I concluded I would have to go to a Cincinnati hospital before I would
get relief. I had frequently been urged to try CUTICUKA EEJIEDIES,
but I had no faith in them. My wife finally prevailed upon me to try them.
Presto I "What a change 1 I am now cured, and it is a permanent cure. I
leel like kicking some doctor or myself for sufferiug three years when I
could have used CUTICUKA remedies. If. JENKINS, iliddleboro, Ky.

DAY OF SWEEPING DENIALS.
Fowers's Witnesses Busy Contra
Georgetown. Ky., Aug. 8. The trial of
Caleb Powers on the charge of being con
nected with the Goebel assassination Ttas
resumed to-day. and Doctor Prewitt of
Taylor County, who was on the stand when
court adjourned yesterday, continued his
On cross-esam'natian the witness denied
that he told Wharton Golden ho had no
doubt that "Tallow Dick" Combs fired the
shot that killed Goebel and denied that ho
said Combs came into the Adjutant Gen
eral's offlce after the shooting. He repeat
ed that Combs and Hockersmith were In
the afhee at the lime, and that neither of
them could hae done the shooting.
The witness also said he had seen Golden
a day or two ago and denounced him as a
liar. As tne witness left the stand Golden
was recalled, and he and Prewitt met faco
to face. They spoke cordially, and Golden
took tho tand and denied that he had
marie certain statements which Prewitt
ciVmrd 1 e had made, and also repeated
what he claimed Prewitt told him in re
gard to "Tallow Dick" Combs In connec
ti 'n with the shooting.
Doctor Prewitt was again recalled, and
said that he was with Wharton Golden
when the latter was first informed by Thos.
1!. Cromwell, a newspaper correspondent,
that he might be arrested in connection
with the assassination. Prewitt said Golden
told, a mint-te later, that they were ar
ranging to put the crime on Powers, but
that the latter was innocent.
George AV. Lionjr, State Treasurer during
Ilradley's regime, testified about going to
Louisville January 30 with Caleb Powers
and othTs to arrange for bringing some
friends from Western Kentucky. He said
the news of the shooting caused them to
abandon the project. On cross-examination
the prosecution introduced a letter, which
they asked Long to identify, but be said it
had not been written or signed by him.
Witness said he thought it had been writ
ten by his son. Wendell Long, but he had
not authorized it.
Mrs. .1. B. Matthews testified that she
heard Cuiton tell her husband that he was
so busy at that meeting at Moore's oiiice
that he did not know exactly what hap
pened. T. U. Hampton, who was a member of the
Frankfort militia, said he was at the arsenal
on the morning of the shooting nnd that It
was ten or fifteen minutes after being in
formed of what had occurred before he left
the arsenal, and it took them from three to
five minutes to reach the Stateliouse.
W. H. Lilly was called to contradict Wade
Watts, who testified for the prosecution that
while Representative W. H. Lilly was ln his
barber shop one morning with a number of
mountain men it was stated that when "Van
Meter was seated a shot could bo fired and
then all the Democrats would rise and they
could shoot them all ln two minutes. Lilly
testified that he did not know Watts, was
never in his shop but once, and never heard
such a conversation.
