onel Wattcrson makes this rather
"No unclean dollar has ever passed
my hand either coming or going,
and I am too old to turn rascal. Pro

cause more genuine bodily discomfort and worry than all other known
diseases. The impurities or sediments which collect in the system because

that ooze out through the glands and pores of the skin, producing an inde
scribable itching and burning, and " I can cheerfully ndore your s. S. S.
