Exchange. P. COURSEY RICHARDS FSEE. INVALID'S SAD PLIGHT. After Inflammatory Rheumatism, Hair Came Out, Skin Peeled, and Bed Sores Developed Only Cuti cura Proved Successful. "About four years ago I had a very severe attack of inflammatory rheuma tism. My skin peeled, and the high fever played havoc with my hair, which came out in bunches. I also had three large bed sores on my back. I did not gain, very rapidly, and my appetite was very poor. I tried many 'sure cures' but they were of little help, and until I tried Cuticura Re solvent I had had no real relief. Then my complexion cleared and soon I felt belter. The bed sores went very soon after a few applications of Cuticura Ointment, and when I used Cuti cura Soap and Ointment for my hair it began to regain its former glossy ap pearance. Mrs. Lavina J.

Recently her grandmother concluded that it devolved on her to instruct the child in religious matters. "You must be a good girl, Ethel," Bho said. "Then you will go to heaven when you die." Ethel seemed scarcely pleased with this reward for exceptional conduct. "Don't you want to go to heaven?" asked grandma, with a look of re proach. "Oh, I don't know," temporized Ethel. "I guess not." , "Why not?" demanded 'grandma, severely. "Because maybe I couldn't get out," answered Ethel. "T "You wouldn't want to get out," re plied grandma. "Oh, yes, I should," returned Ethel, with conviction. "No," argued grandma, "you would not. Why should you want to get out of heaven?"

A Teacher's Experience. Twelve Years' Sentence Commutsd by Governor. P. Coursey Richards of Lincoln, N'eb., serving a 12 years' sentence in the penitentiary for a criminal assault upon his young stepdaughter, went forth a freo man Monday. Gov. Sheldon commuted the sentence as a result of an application by tho prisoner and after a public hearing. Mr. Richards has been on parole at the Soldiers' home at Milford, the parole having been issued by Gov. Mickey before his term of office ex pired. Mr. Richards will go to Penn sylvania where relatives live, and enter the employ of "a railroad com pany. He was convicted largely on the evidence of his wife, and her daughter, the latter being his step daughter anil the nlleced victim. Tho daughter wrote Gov. Sheldon that the father had been wrongfully convicted and a physician who was somewhat ntcrestcd in the trial wrote the gov ernor that in his judgment the crime charged had probably never been committed. This testimony, indicates that an-innoccnt man has served time n the penitentiary, and caused the governor to commute the sentence. Four years were taken from the orig- mil sentence of 12 years. Counting the time spent at the Soldiers' home on narole. Richards served six years in prison. He was a soldier in the civil war and many veterans inter ested themselves in his application for a pardon. "My friends call me 'The Postum Preacher,'" writes a Minn, school teach er, "because I preach the gospel of Postum everywhere I go, and have been tho means of liberating many coffee-pot slaves.' "I don't care what they call me so long as I can help others to see what they lose by sticking to coffee, and can show them tho way to steady nerves, clear brain and general good health by using Postum. "While a school girl I drank coffee and had fits of trembling and went through a siege of nervous prostration, which took mo three years to rally from. "Mother coaxed me to use Postum, but I thought coffee would give me strength. So things went, and when I married I found my husband and I were both coiree topers, and I can sympathize with a drunkard who tries to leave off his cups. "At last in sheer desperation bought a package of Postum, followed directions about boiling it, served it with good cream, and asked my hus band how he liked the coffee. "We each drank three cups apiece and what a satisfied feeling it left. Our conversion has lasted several years and will continue as long as we live for it has made us new nerves are steady, appetites good, sleep sound and refreshing." "There's a Reason."
