Catarrh Remedies and. Doctors Failed
ELGIN, ILL.-In a very recent commu

'that Mr. Arthur Ernest Kidd, a well
known architect of that city, bas made
complete recovery from catarrh of tho
head, from which he had suffered for
^nearly a quarter of a century. He writes
from 18 Hamilton ave.:
"I am 42 years of agc, and havo had ca
tarrh of the head for over half of my life,
as a result of scarlet fever, followed by
typhoid fever. I got so bad that I waa al
most constantly coughing and clearing my
throat. The catarrh greatly impaired my
eyesight, and the hcaripg in one car, and
reduced my weight to 110 pounds.

physicians' treatments, all of which failed

. From nn American traveller lately
returned from Mexico comes the fol
lowing wonderful and veracious story
of Mexican justice:
"I went to the land of the Monte
zumas a few years ago for my health,"
said, the returned traveller, "and was
staying in a little town not very far
from the Texas border. One morning
the corpse of a cowboy was found in
the bushes in the outskirts of the vil
" l?ge. It seems ho had come over from
the other side of the Rio Grande to
attend a fandango. He indulged a lit
tle too freely in Julque while at the
dance, aad doubtless excited the jeal
ousy of some hot headed Mexican be
. cause of too much attention paid to a
. dark eyed senorita. At least, that
was the theory of the killing, because
a bag of money amounting to $300,
all In gold, was found on the body,
proving that the murder had not been
done for robbery. Besides the coln
a costly, very costly, sixshooter, sil
ver mounted and ivory handled, was
strapped around the deceased. The
finding of the gun was the occasion
of a trial before the local alcalde, or
justice of the peace. It was against
[!tho law to carry weapons, and the
hlead man was fined $300, just the
im they found on him, for violating
io Mexican statute.-New York Tri?

SENATOR SPROUL, of Dela
ware County, has beeu nutting
to good usc thc interval of
legislative Inactivity in Penn
sylvania by preparing a good roads
Dill for later consideration. He pro
poses to put public road building in tho
State under the control of a State
Highway Commission, to consist of
three men, who shall appoint a State
Highway Engineer with supervisory
powers. The State*is to appropriate
51,000.000 annually; the Highway .De
partment is to contribute and require
scientific methods of construction, and
whatever amount mny be expended lu
any township is to be borne in equal
proportions by thc township, the coun
ty and the State. This would necessi
tate a yearly expenditure of ?3.00?,000
Tor road betterment. Thc bill contains
3ther suitable provisions for adjusting
the old system of road supervision lo
the new method proposed.
Tho object of this bill is altogether
meritorious. It would bc bettered,
however, by weding out of it thc op
portunity for political engineering. It
would be an improvement, for exam
ple, if the three State Highway Com
missioners should all bo competent
engineers, and if the counties of Ibo
State should bc so divided as to give
them all a field of jurisdiction and
employment. This would make It un
necessary to appoint another mau to do
the work while the three Comissloners
should look on, and would secure cumu
lative official service.
Three million dollars could hardly J>e
spent to better advantage in Pennsyl
vania than ia buddins good roads.
Money so used would bring instant ad
vantage to the tax-paying contributor.
It would so cheapen transportation as
to add to the profit of production, and
so contribute to the comfort of move
ment as to add length of life and hap
piness to living.
Senator Sproul Is on the right track
If ho can only so shape his bill that
the money contributed shall go straight
and whole into scientific road-making

Good Roads in Folltfrs.
The good roads movement has made
such progress in New York State and
has won the approval of the people so
thoroughly that there is a constant
rivalry between the Republican and
Democratic parties in that State as to
which shall present tho most satis
factory good roads plank in its plat
form. This zeal for sood roads does
not die with the election. New York
State has a very good roads law,
though doubtless, as the Democrats
claim, it ls open to improvement, so ns
to give more good roads.
The criticism ls made that thc im
proved roads in New York Sta ie aro
too much in unconnnected sections.
They arc not continuous, so that In
traveling considerable distances the
enjoyment of the hard bottomed im
proved roads is marred by thc neces
sity of traversing occasional sections
of the old stye road of dust or mud.
It is a happy condition when there is
no longer the need of a demand for the
construction of good roads generali}',
but merely the complaint that there
are gaps remaining of the old discred
ited dirt roads.
Good roads halt in Pennsylvania, the
demand being met by a layy-furl'of

by appropriatipnSr^Tave never been

New' Jersey and Massachusetts are
'Jeach making progress in road recon
struction, while Pennsylvania stands
still. Perhaps wheu good roads aro

something will be done. We have had
road commissions and legislation on
thc subject. The opposition to road

posed cost has about died out But t*:e

A Good Omen.
Perhaps it is a good omen that the
first bill introduced lu the House of
Repi tentatives was oue to appropriate
money for the establishment in the De
partment of Agriculture of a bureau of
good roads. Good roads would do good
to all men. The United States, instead
of having the worst roods within tho
limits of civilization, should have the
best. It is a curious contradiction that
Americans insist on fast railroad trains,
fast ships, fast mails, fast horses and
fast autos, but also apparently insist
Dn slow roads. As a city s/iould have
good streets, so should tlc country
have good roads. Roads heavy witli
mud or dust or rough with ruts and
hills aro not only an evidence of un
thrift, but a bar to progress. Ruts and
lulls arc almost as much of a check cn
intercourse as tollgates.
But the good roads movement has
struck deep In men's minds, and will
grow till bad roads shall have been
made good. Good roads are a paying
Investment. They promote neighbor
hood Intercourse, bring the school,
church and farm house nearer to each
other, reduce the distauco between thc
market and the farm. Increase the lon

Distrust of Left-Handed I?arbcrs.
"1 have struck all kinds of barbers Ir
my trips about the country," said the
man who travels, "but the one kine
that always makes mc feel as if I was
balanced on the very brink of eternity
is the left-handed barber. I have been
shaved by several of their class in thc
past year. They have been good bar
bers, too, every one of them, but no

handed barber I leave the shop on
some pretext or other and go else
where to be beautified. Other men
whom I have sounded on the subject
have confessed to the same weakness,
aud women have told me that they
have a like unexplainable dread of left
handed hairdressers. In thc dressmak
ing business, too, I am told, a left
handed cutter and fitter is pretty sure
to give the customer a crop of goose

MARRIAGE AND INSURANCE.
"Wife" Includes a Second Wife
in Life Policies.
Probably few persons will dispute
tho proposition that in common par
lance If a married man speaks of his
wife ho intends to refer to her who
la his wife at that time, and does not
contemplate her death and a second
wife, whom he may subsequently
marry. But suppose a married man
effects a policy o! Insurance on his
own life under the Married Women's
Property Act, 1882, "for the beneOi
of his wife and childlrcn," and after
hls then wife's death the assured mai.
rles again and has a second family.
Will.the second wife and her chl'dren
be entitled upon the death of the hus
band to share In the policy moneys?
This waa the question before Mr. Jus
tice Kekewich in a case at the. end of
last week, and "he held that the sec
ond wife and her children are en
titled to share. The decision appears
to be la accordance with good sense
as well as law.. As the learned judge
observed in giving Judgment, the pre
sumption that when a married man
speaks of ids wife he Intends his wife
at the time loses weight when an in
strument like a policy of Insurance,
which is Intended to make provision
for a wife and children after the hus
band's death, has to be construed. The
husband In all probability intends to
provide for those who survive him,
and for that reason stand in need of
the provision; and this conclusion is
strengthened by the reflection that as
he cannot reasonably be supposed
to have intended to benefit only the
children living at thc date of the policy
to thc exclusion of after-born children
of the then existing wife, there ap
pears to be no good rason why the
children by the second wife and the
second wife herself should not also
share. There is no reason why the
trust in favor of thc wife and children
which the act of 18S2, mentioned above
creates, should not Include objects as
yet unascertained. Upon these grounds
it was held that by "wife and child
ren" the husband intended his surviv
ing wife (if any) and his surviving
children, whether by his then living
or any after-taken wife.-London Tele,

The machine resembles a box car,

arm passes over a sheave at the end,
aid has strong hooks by which thc
chain ls attached to the rail. When
tho chains are hauled in by thc wind

up bodily, ties and paving being so
loosened that they are easily removed.

Ancient and Modern I
Time and Disease tl
of Beauty. What I
to Restore the Lil]
Socrates called beauty a short-lived
tyranny, Plato a privilege of nature,
Theocritus a delightful prejudice,
Thcophrastus a silent cheat, Carneados
a solitary kingdom, Homer a glorious
gift of nature, Ovid a favor of the
gods. Aristotle afllrmed that beauty
was better t han all the letters of recom
mendation in the world, and yet none
of these distinguished authorities has
left us even a hint of how beauty ia to
be perpetuated, or the ravages of age
and disease defied. Time soon blends
the Illy and the rose into the pallor of
age, disease dots the fair ?ace with
cutaneous disfigurations and crimsons
the Roman nose with unsightly flushes,
moth, if not rust, corrupts the glory
of eyes, teeth, and lips yet beautiful by
defacing the complexion, and lilla the
sensitive soul with agony unspeakable..
If such be the unhappy condition of
one afflicted with slight skin blemishes,
what must be tho feelings of those In
whom torturing humors have for
years run riot, covering the skin with
scales and sores and charging the
blood with poisonous elements to
become a part of the system until
death? It Is vain to attempt to por
tray such suffering. Death in many
cases might be considered a blessing.
The blood and fluids seem to be im
pregnated with a fiery element which,
when; discharged through the pores
upon the surface of the body, Inflames
and burns' until, in his efforts for relief,
the patient tears thc skin with his
nails, and not until thc blood flows
does sufficient relief come to cause him
Thus do complexional defects merge
Into torturing disease, and piqued van
ity give place to real suffering. A
little wart on the nose or cheek grows
. to the all-devouring lupus, a patch of
tetter on the palm of the hand or on
the limbs suddenly envelops thc body
in Its fiery embrace, a bruise on the leg
expands into a gnawing ulcer, which
reaches out its fangs to the sufferer's
heart in every paroxysm of pain, a
small kernel lu thc neck multiplies into
a dozen, which eat away the vitality,
great pearl-like scales grow from little
rash-like Inflammations in such abun
dance as to pass credulity ; and so on
may we depict thc sufferings to which
poor human nature ia subject, all of
which Involve great mental distress
because of personal disfiguratious.
If there were not another external
disease known, eczema alone would be
a sufficient Infliction on mankind. It
pervades all classes, and descends im
partially through generations. While
some are constantly enveloped in it,
others have it confined to small
patches in the cars, on the scalp, on
the breast, on the palms of the hands,
on thc limbs, etc., but everywhere its
distinctive feature la a small watery
blister, which discharges an acrid
fluid, causing heat, inflammation, and
intense itching. Ring-worm, tetter,
sculled head, dandruff, beloug to this
scaly and itching order of diseases.
Psoriasis, our modern leprosy, with
its mother-of-pearl scale, situated on
a reddened base, which bleeds upon
the removal of thc scale, ia to be
dreaded and avoided, as of old. Ira- 1
pctigo, barber's itch, erysipelas, and a
score of minor disorders make up In
part the catalogue of external diseases
of the akin. Thus far we have made
no allusion to those afflictions which
are manifestly Impurities of the blood,
viz.. swelling of thc glands of the
throat, ulcers on thc neck and limbs,
tumors, abscesses, and mercurial
poisons, with loss of hair, because
the whole list can be comprehended in
the one word scrofula.
It is in the treatment of torturing,
disfiguring humors and affections of
thc skin, scalp, and blood, with loss of
hair, that the Cati eura remedies have
achieved their greatest success. Orig
inal in composition, scicntitlcally com
pounded, absolutely pure, unchangeable
in any climate, alway s ready, and agree
able to the most delicate and sensitive,
they present to young and old the mott
successful curative of modern times.
This will be con side ed strong language
by those acquainted with thc character
and obstinacy of blood aud skin humors
but lt ls justified by Innumerable suc
cesses where all the remedies and meth
ods in vogue have failed to cure, and,
in many casca, to relieve, even.
The Cutlcura treatment ls at once
agreeable, speedy, economical, and
comprehensive. Bathe the affected
parts freely with hot water and Cutl
cura soap, to cleanse thc sur ace of
crusts and scales, and soften the
thickened cuticle. Dry, without hard
rubbing, and apply Cutlcura Oin tment

cleanse the blood. This treatment af
fords instant relief, permits rot and
sleep in the severest forms of eczema
and other itching, burning, and healy

Gui leura Soap contains in a modified

cura Ointment, the great skin cure and
purestand sweetest of emollients, com
bined with the most delicate and re
freshing of flower odors. It purifies
and invigorates the pores of the ?kln,
and imparts activity to thc oil glands
and tubes, thus furnishing an outlet
for unwholesome matter, which If re
tained would cause pimples, black
heads, rashes, oily, mothy skin, and
other complexional disfigurations, as
well as scalp affections and Irritations,

realizes the fairest complexion, tho
softest, whitest hands, and the most
iuxuriant, glossy hair within thc do
main of the most advanced scientific
knowledge to supply.
Cutlcura Ointment is the most suc
cessful external curative for torturing,
disfiguring humors of the skin and
scalp, Including loss of hair, in proof
of which a single anointing with it,
preceded by a hot bath with Cutlcura
Soap, aud followed in the severer cases
by a full dose of Cutlcura Resolvent, is
sufficient to afford immediate relief In
the most distressing forms of Itching,
burning, and ?-caly humors, permit rest

when all other remedies fail. It is espe

Cutlcura Ointment possesses, at tho
same time, the charin of satisfying
the simple wants of the toilet of all
ages, in caring for the skin, scalp,
hair, and hands far more effectually,
agreeably, and economically than the
most expensive of toilet emollients,
.while free from every ingredient of a
doubtful or dangerous character. Ita
M One Night Treatment of the Hands,"
or " Single Treatment of the Hair," or
use after athletics, cycling, golf, ten

Soap, is sufficient evidence of this.
Of all remedies for the purification
of the blood and circulating fluids, none
approaches lu specific medical action

resolves away (hence its name) scrofu
lous, inherited, and other humors-in
the blood, which give rise to swellings
of the glands, pains in the bones, and
torturing, disfiguring eruptions of thc
skin and scalp, with loss of hair.
Cutlcura Kesolvent extends its puri
fying influence by means of the pores
to thc surface of the skin, allaying
irritation, inflammation, itching, and
burning, aud soothing and healing.
Hence its success in thc treatment of
distressing humors of thc skin, scalp,

The grandest testimonial lhat can

recommendations of those who have

time, and, in fact, of all time, for no
where in thc history of medicine is
to be found another approaching them
in popularity and sale. In every cllmo
