The great value of the road drac,
especially the one with a cutting
blade, la In ltB power of moving dirt
and grading as well as Riirfaclng and
compacting the road. Either with dry

so 'tie sections that all the roads of a
township can be dragged within three
hours' time. The farmers are called up
by telephone and all turn out at one
time, goon making an end of the job.
Tin re are now hundreds of com
munities where all of the fanners turn
out en masse to harrow and drag tho
roads without any direct money com

allowed &0 cents a mile for tho work.

BABY'S HAIR ALL CAME OUT
"When my first baby was six months
old he broke out on his head with little
bumps. They would dry up and leave
a scale. Then It would break out
again and It Bpread all over his head.
All the hair came out and his head
was scaly all over. Then his face
broke out all over in red bumps and
i It kept spreading until It was on his
hands and arms. I bought several
boxes of ointment, gave him blood
medicine, and had two doctors to treat
him, but he got worse all the time.
He had it about six months when a
friend told me about Cuticura. I sent
and got a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent,
a cake of Cuticura Soap and a box of
Cuticura Ointment. In three days
after using them ho began to Im
prove. Ha began to take long caps
and to Btop scratching his head. After
taking two bottles of Resolvent, two
boxes of Ointment and threo cakes of
Soap he was eound and w ell, and never
had any breaking out of any kind. His
hair came out In llttlo curls all over
his head. I don't think anything else
would have cured him except Cuti
cura. "I have bought Cuticura Ointment
and Cuticura Soap several times since
to use for cuts and sores and have
oever known them to fall to cur what
I put them on. Cuticura Soap la the
best that I have ever used for toilet
purposes." (Signed) Mrs. F. E. Har
