Consisting of CUTICURA SOAP to cleanse the
skin of crusts and scales, and soften the thick
ened cuticle, CUTICURA OINTMENT to instantly
allay itching, irritation, and inflammation, and
soothe and heal, and CUTICURA RESOLVENT
to cool and cleanse the Mood, and expel humor
germs. A SINGLE SET is often sufficient to cure
the most torturing, disfiguring skin, scalp, and
Wood humors, rashes, itchings, and irritations,
with loss of hair, when the test physicians,
and all other remedies fail.
AS a sufferer for thirty years from the worst form of Psori
asis, finally cured by Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, I wish to tell you my experience, that others
may Benefit by it. I was so grievously afflicted that the
matter that exuded from my pores after the scales had peeled
off, would cause my underclothing to actually gum to my
body. After remaining in one position, sitting or lying
down, for an hour or two, the f!csh on my elbows and knees
would split, so thick and hard would the crusty scales become
i The humiliation I experienced, to say nothing of physical
! agony, was something frightful. The detached scales would
fairly rain from my coat sleeves. I have read none of your
testimonials that appear to represent a case so bad as mine.
But as to the cure. I commenced bathing in hot Cuti
cura Soap suds night and morning, applied the Cuticura,
Ointment, and then wrapped myself in a sheet. In two
weeks my skin was almost blood red in color, but smooth
and without scales. Patches of natural colored skin began
to appear, and in less than a month I was cured. I am now
passed forty years of age and have skin as soft and smooth
as a baby's. Hoping that others may benefit by my experi
ence, and regretting that sensitiveness forbids me from dis
closing my name, I am yours gratefully,

tions, inflammations, and excoriations, or too free or offensive perspiration, in tne form of
washes for ulcerative weaknesses, and for many sanative antiseptic purposes which readily
suggest themselves to women, and especially mothers. Cuticura Soat combines deli
cate emollient properties derived from Cctcctka, the gTent skin cure, with the purest of
cleansing ingredients, and the most refreshing of flower odors. No amount of persuasion

others, especially for preserving and purifying the skin, scalp, and hair of Infanta and
children. - No other medicated soap is to be compared with it for preserving, purifying, and
beautifying the skin, scalp, hair, and hands. Ko other foreign or domestic toilet eoap,
however expensive, is to be compared with It for all the purposes of the toilet Ziath, ana
nursery. Thus it combines in 0s Soap at One Prick, the best Bfcin and complexion
sosp, and the best toilet and baby aoap in the world. Sold by all druggists.

"For years I have unfortunately found

"Now for the past year and a half I have

"One of my college friends who was vis

but restored me to perfect health, built up
the entire system, and brought a happy
feeling of buoyancy which I had not known
for years." Miss Aliee Dressier.
