Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 29. The popu

stitution, conservation of natural re
sources by state legislation, uniform
divorce laws and other subjects of na
tion wide interest, will come up for
discussion at the conference of gov
ernors, which, opened in this city iron
day and closes In Louisville Dec. 1.
Not only will the subjects be dis
cussed, but: resolutions will be adopted
inaig:jthembers-t0:urgr the en- .
actment or rejection of such legisla
tionby the various state legislatures
as may be decided on at the confer

from every state in the union are pres

the governors-elect, who xvill take the
oath of office on January 1. Among
these are John A. Dix of New Tork,
Simeon E. Baldwin of Connecticut, Eu

Though the house of governors has J
no lawmaking power, it will be able,
through its collective influence, to
urge laws which will settle once and
for all the foremost issues of the day.
It has in the past been difficult to se
cure national legislation on great
questions, and, indeed, on some of the
greatest it Is impossible to secure it
without a constitutional amendment.
"The plan by which the house of
governors will control this legislation
Is so extremely simple that its chief
wonder is that it was not discovered
before. It is simply a new Idea in
American politics to promote uniform
legislation on vital questions and to
secure a fuller freer voice of the peo
ple in such issues.
"In the house of governors, a ma
jority vote will not 'be binding on the
minority. Should even 44 members in
full session agree the ore member not
concurring will have absolute freedom
of action and he or his successor
would probably join the majority side
at the next session of the house."

A BASH BECOMES

On Baby's Face, Head and Shoul
dersParents Decided He Coujd
Not be Cured Cuticura Made
His Skin Perfectly Clear.'
"Our boy was born in Toronto on Ocs. .
13, 190S, and when three months old a slight
rash appeared, on his cheek. What appeared
to be a v.'atcr blister would form. When it
brofce, matter would run
out, starting new blisters
until his entire face, head
and shoulders were a mass
of scabs and you could not
see a particle of clear skin.
Other parts of his body were
affected, but not to such an
extent. Wc did not know
what to do for him and
tried about every adver
tised remedy without avail,
indeed some of them only
added to his suffering and
one in particular, the
Remedy, almost put the
Infant into convulsions.
The family doctor pre
scribed for him and told
us to bathe the baby in
buttermilk. This did not do any good, so
we took him to a hospital. He was treated
as an out-patient twice a week and he got
worse, if anything. We then called in an
other doctor and inside of a week the boy was.
to all appearances, cured and the doctor said
his work was done. But the very next day
it broke out as bad as ever.
"We decided that it could not be cured
and must run its course and so we just kept
his arms bandaged to his side to prevent his
tearing his flesh. We left Toronto and
shortly after our arrival in Duluth. the Cuti
cura "Remedies were recommended. We
started using them in May, 1909, and soon
the cure was complete. You would not
think he was the same child for Cuticura-rnade
his skin perfectly clear and he is entirely free
from the skin disease. There has been no
