Outside cleanliness is less than half the battle." . A man may
scrub himself adozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not.only outside, but inside. It means
a clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and"'
sew, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is clean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or blood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean stom
achs. Blood diseases are found where there is unclean blood.

to crack and peel. I tried many rem

worse all the time.
At last they became
so sore that it was
impossible for mo
to do my house
work. If I put my
hands in water I
was in agony; if I
tried to cook, the
heat caused interwo
pain. I consulted a doctor, but without
the least satisfaction. After about a year
of this suffering, I got my first relief
whenI,tried Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment. After using them for a week
I found to my great delight that my hands
were beginning to feel much better, the
deep cracks began to heal up and stop run
ning, and in a little while my hands were
cured by using only one cake of Cuticura
Soap and one box of Cuticura Ointment.
I am very thankful to say that I have
had no return of the skin disease since.
