I'd like to stay at home, but. can't!
My wife counts that a wasted dav
Wherein she fails to consummate
I Some plan to fill with functions gay
I Those hours when rest I contem-
bo. also, seasons prove the trait;
Sea, mountain, lake on notice
We're off to do the thing I hate
I'd like to stay at home, but can't!
Perhaps I'm of uncommon clay,
And in a perverse form create,
With social instincts quite outre.
For hermit's cell a candidate;
But shaU mine be a nomad's fate
Or gypsy van my homo supplant
Still, where she leads I follow;
I'd like to stay at home, but can't!
Friend, come with me commiserate;
In this my wife is adamant.
And I perforce capitulate
I'd like to stay at home, but can't!

My fare was very red and irritated, being
aimoet covered with pimples ind blackheads.
The pimples were scattered over my face.
They were a fine rash with the exception of
a few large pimples on my forehead aod chin.
My face burned and looked red if exposed to
either beat or cold. It was not only un
sightly but very uncomfortable. I tried
several remedies but couldn't get any relief.
1 was recommended to tue Cuticura Soap
and Cuticura Olntmect. I applied the Cuti
cura Ointment in tho evening, leaving it for
about Ave minutes, then washing it oft with
Cuticura Soap and hot water. I washed
with the Cuticura Soap and hot water also
several times during the day. After about
four months of this application, my face
was cleared of the ptmpies. I still use the
