Till It Got to be Second Nature?
Suffering Endless and Withiout
Relief?Cuticura Made Skin
as Clear as a Baby's.
" If I had known of tho Cuticura
Hemedies flfty vears ago it would havo
saved me two hundred dollars and an
immense amount of suffering. My dis
ease (psoriasis) commencoU on my'head
in a spot not larger thnn a cent. It
spread rapidly over my body and got
under my uails. The scalos would drop
off of me all tho time and mv suffering
was endless antl without relief. A thou?
sand dollars would not tempt mo to have
thls disease over again. I am a poor
man but foel rich to bo froe of what
some of the doctors calied leprosy, somo
ringworm, psoriasis, etc. I took
and-sarsaparillas ovor a year and
a half but got no cure. I cannot praise
the Cuticura Remedies too nuicli. They
made my skin as cloar and freo from
ecales as a baby's. All I used of them
was two cakes of Cuticura Soap, throe
boxes of Cuticura Ointment and threo
bottles of Cuticura Ilosolvent. If you
hacl been there and said you would have
cured mo for two hundred dollars, you
would havo harl tho money. I was
covered with the scales but by using
Cuticura I was soon as clear as any per?
son ever was. This was over twenty-two
years ago and for a long time, through
force of habit, I used to rub my hands
ovor my arms and legs to scratch, but
to no purposo ? I was well. I had
scratched twontv-eight yoars and it
got to bo a kind of second nature to
me. Dcnnis Downing, "Waterburr, Vt.,
