KNEW THE PIG'S WEAK POINT.
Youngster Was Confident of
Ability to "Stump" Him.
It Is an Interesting fact that the two
studies of arithmetic and geography
seem to bo diametrically opposed to
each other In the affections of school
chlldron. Pupils who are particularly
proficient In one are apt to be back
ward In the other. A story Is told of
a little boy who was slow In arithme
tic, and whoso apparent stupidity In
this field was a great source of grief
to his father, who had been a mathe
matician. One day, when the father and son
were walking out, they passed a place
where a "learned pig" was on exhibi
tion, and the father took the boy to
see this porclno prodigy.
"Just look at that," said tho father.
"Why, there's a pig that can count and
add up numbers! Don't you wish you
were as smart as he?"
"Ha!" answered the boy. "Just let
me ask him a few questions in geog
HANDS RAW AND SCALY.
tched and Burned Terribly Could
Not Move Thumbs Without Flesh
Cracking Sleep Impossible.
Cutlcura Soon Cured His Eczema.
"An itching humor covered both my
hands and got up over my wrists and
even up to the elbows. The itching
and burning were terrible. My hands
got all scaly and when I scratched, tho
surface would bo covered with blis
ters and then get raw. The eczema
got so bad that I could not movo my
thumbs without deep cracks appearing.
I went to my doctor, but his medicine
could only stop tho itching. At night
I suffered so fearfully that I could not
sleep. I could not bear to touch my
hands with water. This went on for
threo months and I was fairly worn
out. At last I got the Cutlcura Reme
dies and In a month I was cured. Wal
