CURED BY CUTICURA
FOR FIVE DOLLARS
Mrs. George II. Tucker, Jr., 335
Greenfield Avenue, Milwaukee, Wis.,
is a grateful mother. "When six
months old," she says, " my little girl
weighed a pound and a half less than
at birth. When one month old a scab
formed on her face, spreading until it
completely covered her from head to
foot, followed by boils, having forty
on her head at one time, and more on
her body. Then her skin started o
dry up, and it became so bad she
could not shut her eyes to sleep. One
month's treatment witli Cutieura Soap
and Ointment made a complete cure,
and now my child is as large, strong,
and healthy as any child of her age.
The doctor's nd drug bills were over
one hundred dollars, and my h.iby
grew worse all the time. Then we
spent less than five dollars for Cuti
eura and cured her."

and Tired Mothers.
The suffering which Cutieura Soap
and Ointment have alleviated among"
the young, and the comfort they have
afforded worn-out and worried parenfs,

waterways meeting is held, ways and
means will be deviled by which annu
al appropriations will be secured which
will be devoted to the improvement of

be discussed and some stand taken on
the action of the hospital board in rul

operation of catheterizing the patients.
It is also probable that the action of

Fare Will Not be Cut.
For some time there has been con
siderable discussion throughout the
city that the fare for Campbell's island
would be cut down from 10 to 5 cents
in the very near future, but according
to General Manager Redmond's state
ment there is no truth in the rumor.
In speaking of the matter. Manager
Redmond said: "There will be no
change in the fare between Moline and
the island this year whatever. We'
cannot afford to put on a first class
vaudeville show on the island, which
is free to the general public, and charge
a fare of only 5 cents."
