HOW HAPPY THE
!1S TO I
For It Cured My Baby of Itching, Tor
turing Eczema. First Came when
Between 3 and 4 Weeks Old, Used
Everything Imaginable. 2 Cakes
Soapand One Box Ointment Cured.
"I can't tell in -words how happy the word
'Cutlcura' sounds to me, for it cured my
baby of itching, torturing
eczema. It first came when
she was between three and
four weeks-old, appearing
on her head. 1 used every
thing Imaginable and had
one doctor's bill after an
other but nothing cured it.
Then the eczema broke out
so badly behind her ear
that I really thought her
ear would come off. For
.months I doctored it but
to no avail. Then it began
at her nose and her" eyes
were nothing but sores. I
had to keep her in a dark
room for two weeks. The
doctor did no good, so I
stopped him coming.
Pnr nhnnt two weeks I had used Cutl
cura Soap for her every day. then I got
a box of Cuticura Ointment and began to use
that. In a week there was a marked im
provement. In all I used two cakes of Cuti
cura Soap and one box of Cuticura Ointment
and my baby was cured of the sores. This
was last November; now her hair is growing
out nicely and she has not a scar on her.
I can not praise Cuticura enough, I can take
my child anywhere and people are amazed to
see her without a sore. From the time she
was four weeks old until she was three years,
she was never without the terrible eruption
but now, thanks to Cuticura, I have a well
child. Mrs. H. E. Householder. 2004 Wil

Welcome Words to Women
"Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their
sex should -mite to Br. Pierce and receive free the
advice of a physician of over 40 years' experience
a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases
of women. Every letter of this sort has the most
careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly
confidential. Many sensitively modest women write
fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from
telling to their local physician. The local physician
is pretty sure to say that he cannot do anything
without "an examination." Dr. Pierce holds that
these distasteful examinations are generally need
less, and that no woman, except in rare cases, should submit to them.
-" Dr. Pierce's treatment "will cure you right in the privacy -of
your own home. His "Favorite Prescription" has enred
hundreds of thousands, some of them the worst of cases.
It is the only medicine of its kind that is the product of a regularly graduated
physician. The only one good enough that its makers dare to. print its every .
ingredient oa its outside wrapper. There's no secrecy. It will bear examina
tion. No alcohol and no habit-forming drugs are found in it. Some unscrup

with your health. "Write to "World's Dispensary Medical Association, Dr. R.

The Merchant Who Owned the Newspaper

paper space and, as a consequence, his. business wa3
prosperous. He (paid his advertising bills promptly and his
.business relations with the paper were most cordial. Now. it
came to pass that one day this merchant unintentionally
created an item of news. It was an item that would not look
well in print. Straightway, he went to the ou-siness office
of his favorite newspaper and demanded that this news item
in which he figured be suppressed. He was kindly informed
that a newspaper's first duty to its subscribers was to publi-sh
the news. Thereupon, he became exceedingly wroth and cited
the fact that 'he. through bis advertisements, had made it pos
sible for the newspaper to succeed. Despite bis argument, the
item of news appeared. The newspaper is still in existence,
although it no longer carries the advertising of this merchant.
