Is believed by many that the day for motor
cars for local and surbuban traffic is now here.

Sight of Eye Destroyed by Disease
Tried Five Doctors but Grew
Worse In Agony Eight Months
Parents Discouraged, Until
They Tried Cuticura Remedies
IN ONE WEEK ALL
"Our llttlo girl, ono year and a half
old. was taken with eczema or that was
what tho doctor naid it was. Wo called
in tho family doctor and ho gave- Bpmo
tablets, and said nho would bo all right
In a few days. Tho eczema grow woreo
and wo called in doctor No. 2. Ho
uoid sho was teething, as Boon as the
teeth wero through sho would bo all
right. But sho still grew woreo. Doc
tor No. 3 said it was eczema. By this
tlmo sho was nothing but a yellow,
greenish Bore. 'Well, ho said ho could
help her, bo wo let him try it about
a week. Ono morning wo discovered
a llttlo yellow plmplo on ono or her
eyes. Or courso wo 'phoned for doctor
No. 3. Ho camo over and looked her
over and said that ho could not do any
thing more for her, that wo had better
toko her to some eyo specialist, Binco ib
was an ulcer. So wo went to Oswego
to doctor No. 4, and he said tho eye
Bight was gone, but that ho could help it.
Wo thought we would try doctor No. 5.
Well, that proved tho same, only h
charged 110 more than doctor No. 4.
Wo wero nearly discouraged. I saw
ono of tho Cuticura advertisements in
tho paper ond thought wo would try
tho Cuticura Treatment, bo I went and
purchased a set of Cuticura Remedies,
which cost mo SI, and in three days
our daughter, who had been sick about
eight months, showed groat improve
ment, and in ono week all sores had dis
appeared. Of courso it could not re
store the eyesight, but if wo had used
Cuticura in time I nm confident that
it would have saved the eye. Wo think
there is no remedy so good for any skin
troublo or impurity of tho blood as
