WHY suffer days and
nights of sleepless tor
ture from eczemas, rashes,
itchings and irritations of the
skin and scalp? It is needless.
A warm bath with
and one application of Cuticura
Ointment will afford immediate
relief, permit rest and sleep and
point to permanent skin health
in most cases when all else fails.
This is strong language but easily proven by use of the free
samples of Soap and Ointment which will be mailed postpaid
to any sufferer. Address Potter Drug & Chem. Corp., DepL
