TERRIBLE ITCHING SCALP
Eczema Broke Ont Also on Hands anil
Limb?-An Old Soldier Declares:
"Cntlcnra is a Blessing:."
"At ali times and to all people I am
willing to testify to the merits of Cuti
eura. It saved me from worse chan the
torture pf hades/about the year 1900, with
itching on my scalp and temples, and af
terwards it commenced to break out on
'my hands. - Then it broke out on my limbs.
1 then went to a surgeon, whose treat
ment did me no good, but rather aggra
vated the disease. 1 then told him 1
would go and see a physician in Erie. The
reply waa that I could go anywhere, but
& case of eczema like mibe could not be
cured; that I was too old (80). 1 went to
~ aa eminent doctor in the city of Erie and
treated with him for si* months, with
like results. I h^d read of the Cuticura
Remedies.'and so I sent for the Cuticura
Soap, Ointment and Resolvent, and con
tinued taking the Resolvent until I bad
taken six bottles, stopping it to take the
Pills. I was now getting better. 1 tqok
two baths a day, and at night I let the
lather of the Soap dry ou. I used the
Ointment with great effect after washing
in warm water, to stop the itching at
once. I am now cured. The Cuticura
treatment is ? blessing, and should be
used by every one who has itching of the
skin. I can't say any more, and thank
God that He bas given the world such a
curative. Wm. H. Gray, 3303 Mt. Vernon
St., Philadelphia, Pa., August 2, 1905."
I wish I could revive the first feel
ing of strangeness and astonishment
which overcame me when I first ar
rived in. England and which falls to
the envied lot of every foreigner or
every Englishman, who has been away
from his country for a long time. I
turn green with envy every summer
when I see the hundreds of American
tourists In the streets of London and
remember that they are undergoing
an experience which v/ill remain with
them as an ideal memory for the rest
of their lives, but which, if they re
main here, will wear off. I used to
see Mr. Pickwick and Sam Weller and
^Mr. Panks at every corner in Blooms
.^bury, and in Pall Mari I constantly ran
across Col. Newcome and Major Pend
ennis. For the first few weeks of my
first stay in London I haunted the
Drury lane district for "types" which
had become familiar to me in my
youthful novel reading days. The
strange thing about it all is that,
whereas every American who comes
lhere at once points tbese people out
zo me and dwells with glee in the
discovery, I never see them now. They
have either become so familiar to the
^aded view of the Ingrained Londoner
or they must have been merely the
figment of the easily influenced imag
ination of tho impressionable green

Coffee Knifed an Old Soldier.
'An old soldier, released from coffee
nt 72, recovered , his health and tells
?about it as follows:
"I stuck to coffee for years, although
lt knifed me again and again.
"About eight years ago (as a result
of coffee drinking .which congested my
liver), I was taken, with a very severe
attack of malarial fever.
"I would apparently recover and
start about my usual work only to suf
fer a relapse. After this had been re
peated several times during the year I
was again t?ken violently ill.
"The doctor said he had carefully
studied my case and it was either 'quit
coffee or die,' advising me to take
Postum in its place. I had always
thought coffee one of my dearest
friends, and especially when sick, and
I was very much taken back by the
doctor's decision for I hadn't suspected
the coffee I drank could possibly cause
"I thought it over for a few minutes
and finally told the doctor. I would
make the change. Postum was pro
cured for me the same day and made
according to directions; well, I liked it
and stuck to it and since then I have
been a new man. The change in health
began In a few days and surprised "me.
and now, although I am seventy-two
years of age, I do lots of hard work
and for the past month have been
teaming, driving sixteen miles a day,
besides loading- and unloading the
wagon. That's, what Postum in the
pia ce of coffee has done for me. I now
like the Postum as well a3 I did coffee.
"I have known people who did not
care for Postum at first, but after hav
ing learned to make lt properly accord
ing to directions, they have come to like
it as -veli as coffee. I never miss a
chance to praise it." Name given by

THE WORK OF CONGRESS
What is Being Done Day by Day By
the National House and Senate.
Saved the Bill.
At Saturday's session, what might
have been a serious parliamentary
snarl was dexterously avoided by
Speaker Cannon-late Saturday after
noon in the House of Representatives
when Mr. Murphy, of Missouri) rose
to present what he denominated a
The conference reports on the rate
and statehood bills had been nude
and ordered printed when the Mis
souri congressman presented a reso
lution rescinding the action of thc
House sending the statehood bill k
conference and providing for a vote
on the Senate amendments.
Mr. Payne, of New Yorky the floor
leader of the majority, instantly made
the point that the resolution was not
privileged. The Speaker with smil
ing face, held that the resolution was
not priviledged, as thc papers in the
ease were with the Senate and he had
serious doubt if the resolution would
bc privileged even if the papers were
with thc House. Confusion ensued,
Mr. Murphy and a number of Dcmo
; springing to their -feet to take
exception lo the ruliug of tho Speak
Above thc din Mr. Murphy was
heard to say: "Let's have a square
deal Mr. Speaker. I appeal from the
: decision of the chair," but thc Speak
er was* oblivious to the motion for an
appeal and adjourned the House at
5.30 until noon on Thursday on mo
tion of Mr. Bonyngc, of Colorado,
leaving Mr. Murphy's gesticulating
on the fioor. ? .
The House spent the day consider
ing the naturalizing bill but did not
complete it. Thc "nub" of thc na
turalization bill, the educational test,
was debated during much of Hie ses
sion, (o bc finally amended by Mr.
Kennedy, of Nebraska, whose- amend
ment reads as follows: '.That no alien
shall hereafter be naturalized or ad
mitted as a citizeu of the United
States who cannot speak the English
language." Thc lest as laid down in
thc bill makes it obligatory that the
intending citizen must write In's own
language and read, speak and under
stand the English language."
Senate. Passes Postof?ce Appropria
The senate passed the postoffice ap
propriation bill carrying an appropri
ation of $192.485,000 and immedi
ately afterward adjourned over Mem
orial day until Thursday. The entire
day was devoted to the consideration
of thc bill as a whole and to spe

dealt with the questions of the fast
mail train to the South, second class
matter, including the admission to the
mails of the publications of colleges,
universities and charitable .and edu

matter, subsidies for Pacific mail
steamships, and questions relating to

Aftermath of Tuesday's filibuster
ing, ending in arrest and hearing be
fore house of number of memb??s, in
order to complete a q??rum, came in
the house of representatives on th?
approval of the journal.
A number of the members, who
were 'arrested" by the sefueartt-at
arms during the call of the Wisc at
night, were still in a . savage mood
when the house convened and they 'tad
personal 'reasons to atjsigi? why iney
^ere absent cn roll call.
Throughout the whole of the ses
sion which was precipitated by the
motion to approve thc journal, the
speaker of the house sat almost im
movable, now and then indulging in
a quiet chuckle over the discomfort
of his friends.
When his right to drcet the issu
ance of the writ of arrest was at
tacked, thc speaker following au ex
position of thc rules, terminated fur
ther argument by asserting that "thc
gentleman had been legally arrested."
The rules of the house, as to the
presence of members,"were brought
home to thc members and during the
rest of thc day, while the house had
under consideration the diplomatic
and consular bill, a quorum was con
