Screamed with Pain Suffering
Nearly Broke Parent's Heart
Twelve Years of Misery Doctor
Called Case Incurable Helped
from first, and
SPEEDILY CURED BY
"I wish to inform you that your
wonderful Cuticura has put a stop to
twelve years of misery I passed with
my son. As an in
fant I noticed on
his body a red spot
and treated sasie
edies for about five
years, but when
the spot began to
get larger I put
him under the care
of doctors. Under
their treatment the disease spread to
four different parts of his body. The
longer the doctors treated him the worse
it grew. During the day it would get
rough and form like scales. At night it
would be cracked, inflamed, and badly
swollen, with terrible burning and itch
ing. When I think of his suffering, it
nearly breaks my heart. His screams
could be heard down stairs. The suf
fering of my son made me full of misery.
I had no ambition to work, to at, nor
could 1 bleep.
" One doctor told me that my son's
eczema was incurable and gave it up
for a bad job. One evening I saw an
article in the paper alxmt the wonderful
Cuticura and decided to give it a trial.
" I tell you that Cuticura Ointment
is worth iU weight in gold; and when 1
had used the first box of Ointment there
was a great improvement, and by the
time I had used the second set of Cuti
cura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent my
child was cured. He L now twelve
years old, and his skin is as fine! and
smooth as silk, (signed) Michael Stein

Stirs Up County Board. The spirit
of constraint and the strained rela
lions that have existed among the
members of the board of supervisors
of late is understood to have culminat
ed in open clunrges made in an affida
vit by John Zoller. former chairman,
against the other members of tke
board. Mr. Zoller was chairman of the
board, and was up for reelection, but
it u said that if he wanted to be chair
man again he would first agree to let
the old committees stand without dis
arrangement, fie refused to be dic
tated to in the matter of committees
and was not made chairman. It is said
that Mr. Zoller became suspicious and
watched aounty matters with an alert
eye tnereattcr. me results oi ins
watchfulness, it Is said, appear in the
affidavit to which he has affixed his
sworn signature. It is said to cll at

money as the elevator in the Lane
building, which travels five stories. A
contract which the hoard made for
boilers e.t a price which is said to be
exorbitant receives attention from the
ex-chairman of the board in his affida
vit. Mr. Eoller was the only man who
voted against this contract. Taeee
and other matters, it is said, are touch
ed upon in the affidavit, all of them
being virtually charges of graft against
the remaining members of the board.
