The large ones were frightful to look at, and painful to hear; people turnou aside when they saw me in dis gust, and I was ashamed to be on the street, or in society. Physicians and their treat ment. and all medicines failed to do any good. 11l a moment of despair 1 tried the CufICUBA Kemkpi j,s—Ci'TioußA, the great Skin Cure, and CUTICUHA Soap, an exquiite Shin Bean ttfler, externally, and Cunufß 1 Resolvent, the new Blood Purifier, internally; the small lumps (as 1 call them) gradually disappeared, and the large ones broke, in about two weeks, discharging largo quantities of matter, leav ing two slight sears in my neck to-day to tell the story of mv suffering My weight theft was ouo hundred and fifteen sickly pounds; my weight now Is one hundred and sixty one solid, healthy pmnda, and my height is only five lcet live inches. In my travels I praised the CCTtcuKA ÜBMKHiks, North, South. Hast and West. To Cuticuha Rkmkdies I owe MV HEALTH, MV UAPPINKBS ANI) MY LIFE. A prominent New York druggist asked me the other day, "Do you still use theCurieußA Remedies; you look to he in perfect health?” My reply was, "I do, and shall always. 1 have never known wiiat sickness Is since I com menced using the CUTICUBA RembdiKh.” Sometimes 1 am laughed at by praising them to people not acquainted with their merits, but sooner or later they will come to their senses aod believe the same as those that use them, as dozens have whom I liuve told.
