New Orleans.-Lucio and Sinplico
Giodino are the most remarkable ba
bles in the world. They are twins, not
tluite three years old, and are our lit
tle brown brothers of the Philippino
islands. Of course, there's nothing so
remarkable about that, but listen:
Nature has so joined the flesh of
these little fellows that even the great
est of human surgeons do not dare
to part them. Back to back they will
have to go throughout their wholo
lives. When one dies the other must
of necessity follow him into eternity.
Nature has so decreed.
A compact but somewhat elastic
mass of tissues joins them together
at the base of the spine. *Just like
our "everyday" twins, the kind more
or less common throughout the whole!
country, Lucio and Simplico play
with jumping-jacks, blow horns, hug
their dollies, and pound on toy drums.
h'lhey usually play sittin'g on the
floor, as under the circumstances they
cannot use chairs. Loosely fitting
dresses make then look much like one
big baby with two heads. But. !n
doors they dliscard most of their cloth-'
ing, and romp about with much of
their bodices exposed. And just like
ordinary twins, they quarrel, fight and
go after each other with little fists
and finger nails. They both speak
1nglish as well as American children
of about their age. Besides Ithat they
speak a little Spanish and German a.
But of course they know Filipino best.
It is nothing unusual for Lucio to be
talking English while at tI .e. same time
Simplico will be speaking in another

tion~ it was the unanimous decision
that an, operation which would sepa

The twins were born in Samnar
islandl in the Philippine archipelago,
of native parents. They were found
by J. R. Louis and M. A. Clark,
wealth'y Americans living in the
islands. The American protectors of
the twins say they will take the b~oysi
around the world in the interest of
science, that they will be exhibited
before medical clinics in the great
hospitals of America and Europe, and
that under no circumstances will they
be exhibited in public.,
The parents of the twins, who are
also in America now, were at flrat fim
mensely proud of their curious twins,
and took great pleasure in showing
them to strangers who happened to
visit the little Filipino village. Later
on, as the parents became more civil
ized and Americanized, they looked
forward with great joy to the separa
tion of the children, but now, that the
surgeons have rendered their verdict

HEAD SOLID MASS OF HUMOR
"I think the Cuticira Remedies are
the best remedies for eczema I have
ever heard of. My mother had a child
,who had a rash on its head when it
was real young. Doctor called it baby
rash. lie gave us medicine, but it
did no good. In a few days the head
was a solid mass; a running sore. it
was awful, the child cried continually.
we had to hold him and watch him
to keep him from scratching the
sore. Illis suffering was dreadful. At
last we remembered Cuticura Rome
dies. We got a dollar bottle of Cuti.
cura Resolvent, a box of Cuticura
Ointment, and a bar of Cuticura Soap.
We gave tho Resolvent as directed,
washed the head with the Cuticura
Soap, and applied the Quticura Oint
ment. We had not use'd half before
the child's head was clear and free
from eczema, and it has never come
back again. lls head was healthy
and he had a beautiful head of hair.!
