BOY TORTURED BY ECZEMA
"When my boy wns six years old, he
suffered terribly with eczema. lie
could neither sit still nor Uo qulotly In
bed, for tho Itching was dreadful. Uo
would lrrltato spots by scratching
with bis nails and that only mado
them worse. A doctor treated him
and we tried almost everything, but
the eczema Boomed to spread. It
started In a small placo on tho lower
extremities and spread for two years
until It very nearly covered tho back
part of his leg to tho knee.
"Finally I got Cutlcura Soap, Cut!
cura Ointment and Cutlcura Pills and
gavo tbcm according to directions. I
used them In tho morning and that
evening, beforo I put my boy to bed,
I used them again and tho Improve
ment even In thoso few hours was sur
prising, tho Inflammation seemed to
bo so much less. I used two boxes of
Cutlcura Ointment, tho satno ot tho
Pills and tho Soap and my boy was
cured. My son Is now In his sev
enteenth year nnd ho has never had
a return of tho eczema.
"I took caro ot a friend's child that
had eczema on Its faco and limbs and
I usod the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment
They acted on tho child Just as they
did on my son and It has nover re
turned. I would recommend tho Cutl

Direct from the German Minea

Some fertilizer manufacturers
may tell you that they will sell you
potash cheaper than we will. We
are offering carloads for cash direct
from the German mines to the
buyer at the lowest price ever
quoted. If any one offers it to you
for less than our price, before accepting-
his offer be sure that the
manufacturer signs a contract with
you absolutely guaranteeing deliv
ery of potash tails and not some
substitute in the
shape of such
mixed goods as he may have oa
hand at th; close of the season.
You know how it has been in
the past. If you are contracting
for other fertilizers, be sure that
the contract requires delivery of tho
potash at the same time with or
before the delivery of the other
goods. Do not accept the other
goods until the potash is delivered.
Do not depend on the assurance of
the salesman. Write it in the con
tract. It will pay
you to do so.
