We had all the doctors around us and some from larger places, but no one helped him a particle. The eczema was something terrible, and the doctors said it was the worst ease they ever saw. At times his whole body and face were covered, all but hia feet. I had to bandage his limbs and arms ; hia scalp was just dreadful. I jsed many kinds of patent medicines before trying the Cuticura Remedies, all to no avail. "A friend teased me to try Cuticura. At last I consented, when my boy was three years and four months old. having had eczema all that time, and suffering untold misery. I began to use all three of the Cuticura Remedies; the Cuticura Soap helped as well as the Ointment. lie was better in two months; in six months he was well; but I gave him the Cuticura Resolvent one year, using twelve bottles, I think, and always used the Cuticura Soap for bathing, and do now a good deal. He was four years old before he was well, and his skin became per fectly fair when cured. I give you per mission to publish this letter for I am always glad to do good when I can.

Possibly It Is not correct to speak of a bridegroom as a boy. yet Alfonss Is only twenty years of age. Ho feas been a king since birth and has exercised the rule In his own right for the past two years. Alfonso speaks four languages outside of his own. is a daring automobilist, a good shot, an accomplished horse back rider and boxes, fences, roses a kodak and climbs mountains, lie has endeared himself to his subjects by many kindnesses to the poor. He is the only Bourbon on a throne in Europe. Critical Insight Into Greenfield Convention Careful Analysis of Meeting Held Saturday Shows That It Wes but a Whim cf "Stokes" Jackson Kuhn a Side Issue and Chairman Meek Played School Boy. Kuhn says they will bo very proud of him Stokes" JacJron Is a lawyer at Greenfield. Hjris a prominent lawyer, he Is a frigid of William Jennings Bryan, Jfl fact he is perhaps nearer fan than any other man in the "Stokes" wanted to get the Sixth district to endorse his friend Bryan so he instructed Sylvester Meek. of Connersville to call a con vention to be held at Greenfield Sat urday, June 2. Jackson would'nt stand for the convention being held any place else. First because he didn't care to leave home and second because he wanted to have a crowd present when the action was taken. There are numerous Democrats in Hancock county; there are few any place else in the sixth district or rather there are few who care to have it known to the extent of turning out to a conven tion. So Jackson had his meeting in Greenfield. Those who attended from outside Jackson's home got there in time to meet at ten o'clock but the convention wasn't called till one. Jackson forgot to notify the Jefferson- ites of this fact. They arrived before dinner. No provision had been made for their entertainment. They walked the streets and when dinner time came they took lunch wherever they happened to be. Mayor Carr of Greenfield was ap pointed by Jackson to make arrange ments for the convention proper. Carr did, that is he hired a band and told them to play until he told them to stoD. Carr forgot to make arrange ments for seating the delegates so that each county could have a little grour of Its own, he forgot to arrange for caucus rooms in fact he forgot everything but the band.. That was enough for one day for Carr. A minister from Richmond was at the convention. He got there before any of the delegates. He had heard, read about and attended Republican conventions and he supposed that this ono would be like the others of hi3 knowledge. But it wasn't. Dr. Kuhn, for he was the pastor in question, was a candidate for Congress. Some lime aco when seeking the support of any party that wasn't the Republican par ty, Dr. Kuhn was an independent but at Greenfield he was a "Demmie." He sought for, shook hands for, argued for and had the nomination for Con gress, shoved upon him. But as the writer started in to say, Dr. Kuhn got to the convention before any of the delegates. He thought that he would have to do some campaigning. He did, but he wouldn't If he had only been wise. "Stokes" saw Dr. Kuhn shaking hands with all the men he met, call ing their wives, "sister" and kissing the babies. He gave him the hjgh sign. He took him into his office."Now Dr. Kuhn, "Stokes" is reported as saying "there is really no need of your wasting your time and other peo ple's, with all this glad handing, that is, it is not imperative. In other words you don't have to do it. Nobody else will take it. It is a matter of form that we have a candidate for Congress and you'll have to be the man this year." But then Jackson had another thought, it is said. He thousrht of the reality it would add to the situation to have Kuhn acting like a real can didate for office. So he told Dr. Kuhn to keep it up. Kuhn did. He went to the front of the court house. (the convention was held In that building) and kept up his shaking. "Hello brother, how's the wife and babies, the crops, the neighbors and your health." was what they all got that went Kuhn's way. Kuhn kept it up till dinner time, in fact he got a late dinner. He ate at the hotel (politicians usually do) but took time to get no more than he would have secured at a three cent lunch counter. Then Kuhn was dropped from the scene for a time and "Stokes" had a committee on resolutions named. There were not enough present to have a delegate from each county on the committee but that dld'nt matter for "Stokes" had the resolutions all drawn up when the committee met Lokes" JacJi n field. Ills i a frigid c n, Jn fact h fan than ai Harris says that Dr. Kuhn is Disappointment They were O. K. with one exception. In naming the principles for which the "Demmies" stood, "Stokes" spell ed it "principals." With the word cor rected the resolutions stood as he had written them. They named Bryan for the next presidential nominee. That was all "Stokes" w-anted. But for this piece of kindness on the part of his brethern. "Stokes" agreed to nomi-1 nate Kuhn. He did. He first had Dr. Schillinger made permanent chair man and Will Chamb. secretary. He let Sylvester Meek of Connersvile who gets the credit for being district chairman, open the convention. Meek resembled a school boy giving his first recitation. He twisted one finger about the other. He stood on one foot then on the other. In his eyes there came that scared look. In fact he had all the "first recitation" symp toms. Meek forgot some things he had intended to say; he said other things before it was time to sar them. He finally gave up in despair and sank down with a "poorly done but it's over" expression on his face. Dr. Schillinger then took charge. He told the delegates he didn't have anything to say except that there was to be a, man nominated to beat Jim Watson. Dr. Schillinger forgot that going over on the street car he had told Finley Gray of Connersville that Kuhn was to be the Democrat sacrifice, the bleeding lamb as it were, which was to be slaughtered for the big feast two years hence when a good man is to be nominated and the "Demmies" hope to win. But Dr. Schillinger didn't expect for all the delegates to hear that. Oh! he didn't mind for the delegates to hear it, for they all knew it. The man he didn't want to hear it was KuKnv He didn't like to hurt his feelings. "Stokes" Jackson was then called on for the resolutions which he read in a clarion voice. There was a hip, hip hurrah when Jackson had conclu ded. Then Jackson moved that the resolutions be adopted. They were Then came roll call. Here came Jack son atrain. He had a line of talk that resembled a streak of jagged lightn ing in a clear sky. "Stokes" was too busy drawing up the resolutions to take time to prepare an easy running speech for Kuhn. But anyhow he got his right name, dubbed him the great est commencement speaker in Wayne township nd a true and loyal Demo crat. Having finished "Stokes" sug gested Kuhn be brought in. A commit tee of three did the escort act. Their work was easy for Kuhn was right outside the door and was stamping with impatience to get Inside. Then he made a speech. He told a story that was a favorite with Old King Rameses, but It illustrated his point. It was the time honored tale of the athlete who chased jack rabbits thinking them to be lambs. The point Kuhn w-anted to make was that no matter how foolish thething might be for what they sought the Demmies never gave up. This particularly tick led the silverltes, and the anti Imper ialists and several other "antis." Fin ally Kuhn told the convention that they should be proud of him and tiuit. Then George Harris had his say. He didn't tell the convention assembled but he told his friends that he was disappointed. Now it is significant that George is disappointed and that he said so. For George Is county chair man. He ought'nt to nave said 'what he did but he just could'nt hel? it. Disgust will out. After the convention was over, "Stokes" told the "Demmies" that Tom T. was a good fellov. That he had a nice place at French Lick and that they should drop down occasion ally. The delegates then left, voting "Stokes" a good fellow and promising to come again when he had another convention. ; LOST Engraved gold ring on Deco ration day.

The Vajen head protector, manu factured by the Vajen-Baden Company of this city, was first placed on the market ten or twelve years ago. It was, in trade parlance, a "good thing" but no one could make a success of it from a financial standpoint. This state of affairs existed for some time until about five years ago when Fred McManis, a hustling young man, was brought to this city and placed in the company in the capacity cf sales man ager. The result of this move is that the Vajen head protector is now sold all over the world, the concern Is on a paying basis and last but not least, Mr. McManis has originated a neV school of advertising. How all this came to pass is best told in the words of Mr. McManis: "The article we manufacture is known as the Vajen helmet. It is used to enable the wearer of "it to safely en ter rooms that are filled with fire and smoke, mines that are filled with poisonous gases, the holds of ships, should fire break out, the amonia rooms in cold storage plants, should the pipes burst and the amonia fumes fill the place, and dozens of other uses that are being found for it from time to time. "The Vajen helmet sells for $125, $137.50 and $150 net, according to size. Up to May 1,"-1903 I traveled from city to city and from fire department to coal mine demonstrating the practic ability of our helmet, but I couldn't make it go. I put on another sales man he was no improvement. I was running behind about $200 and was certainly up against it. So I sat down in the office and commenced to write letters. I wrote long ones i6. short ones. I single spaced them and I double spaced them. I begged and pleaded and argued and bluffed by correspondence and I sold the helmets Inside of three months after I quit the road I had turned a $200 a month loss into a $500 a month profit. Of course I kept on writting letters. During the eight months commencing the 1st of May, 1903 I dictated and signed with a pen 25,000 personal letters. And these letters, by the way, brought me just $25,000 worth of business a dol lar a letter exactly. My limit on let ter writing appears to have been reached but the 'dollar-a-letter' is still holding good." Tidal Wave of Letters. This tidal wave of letters Mr. Mc Manis turns loose upon the Richmond post office is about all the advertising he does. Certain publications handle quarter page adds for him now and then and the bills for booklets and circulars are few and far between. McManis and his "personal letters" have turned the trick and incidentally gained for him a prominent place in the advertising world. The Vajen head protector is a nan dy helmet that fits down over the head, resting comfortably on the shoulders. It is made of fire proof leather and fitted with a reservoir for holding compressed air. It is provid ed with mica covered eye openings and patent sounding devices placed over the ears. Its purchasers are found every where In the gold mines of Mexico, in the big department stores and ho tels of the large cities; in the fire stations of all metropolitan depart ments; in the navies of Great Britan Chili, France, America, Germany and Japan, in the coal mines of West Virginia and Pennsylvania; in the large cold storage plants and brewer ies; in the chemical labratories of the large universities and other places too numerous to mention. The navy of Great Britianus supplied with 400 hel mets and every ship in the CRilian navy is also supplied with a Tielmet It is probable that in the ncr future every ship in the American navy will be supplied with these helmets which are of untold value in the case of a fire in the hold of a ship. McManis Made Experiments. Mr. McManis has been deep into the bowels of the earth demonstrating the value of the helmet and his exper iences have been many and varied. On several occasions he has rescued men in coal mines from death. Mr. McManis has hit upon a novel scheme which has proven to be a great success. Whenever anyone is rescued from places of peril by the use of a Vajen head protector, the res curer is given a gold medal by the concern. It was only a few days that a fireman in Dublin, Ireland, protected with a helmet, walked into a sewer which was filled with poisonous gases rescued two men and carried out the bodies of three victims. Today he is the proud posessor of a Vajen-Bader medal. In November, 1897. a fire In the hold of the British cruiser "J9 tona" threatened to destroy the ship Two sailors equipped with Vajen hel mets went into the hold, defied the smoke and flames, located the fire and extinguished it, thereby saving the vessel and the lives of scores of men.

THE ROYAL BOX. When King Edward was Prince of Wales he was known in familiar cir cles as "Teddy Wales." King Leopold of Belgium delights In a collection of ancient timepieces, one of the most valuable being a master piece which belonged to Marie An toinette. The late Czar Alexander III. of Rus sia was once considerably embarrassed by a circus of performing fleas, sent him by Prince Henry of Reuss as a birthday present. The young king of Spain is an expert in the use of the sword. When a child he practiced with wooden swords with the young nobles of his court His marvelous ability was even then no ticeable, and he la now considered one of the most expert of the royal fencers of Europe. What is undoubtedly the largest col lection of picture postal cards In the world Is the property of the Prince of Wales eldest yson. The collection in cludes cards from every country in the world and is now growing almost too bulky for convenient handling, there being more than 10,000 cards. THE WRITERS. Jerome K. Jerome has the middle name of Klapka. Kipling was christened Itudyard be cause his father proposed to his mother on the lake of that name. H. G. Wells in his youth often wrote 8,000 words a day, but now he con fines himself to 1,000 words 300,000 words a year two books. Mark Twain Is very fond of collect ing odd obituary poetry and has a scrapbook,. which he prizes very highly, containing 3,000 specimens. The memoirs of General Kuropatkin, a work covering the Russo-Japanese war, are being published in Moscow under the direction of the author. The -most remarkable thing about the career of Justin McCarthy is the tre mendous amount of work be has been able to accomplish. Xovelist, journal ist, historian, politician and party lead er, he has found time to travel widely and to cultivate delightful social rela tions with most of the leading literary, artistic and political people of his time. THE AUTOMOBILE. An English medical authority says fast automobile riding has much the same psychological effect as getting drunk. Automobile temperance might not be a bad plan. Buffalo Express. A bill in the German reichstag pro vides that automobilists must pay life annuities to those dependent on per sons killed by their notor cars or to persons permanently injured by such accidents. It sounds like an extreme measure. But is it? New York World. Legislation respecting the automobile is new and experimental, but brief ex periment has demonstrated the necessi ty of broader public safety legislation, legislation that will cover all possible conditions, legislation that will protect the prudent automobilist and punish the reckless and negligent. Schenec- Uncle Same should be deeply interested in what he has said about soda crackers, because they are the one food with which all of them are familiar Uncle Sam has given out figures showing that soda crackers are richer in nutriment and body-building elements, properly proportioned, than any food made from flour. This is saying much for common soda crackers, and much more for Uneedcl BlSCUlt, because they are soda crackers of the best quality. They are baked better more scientifically. They are packed better more cleanly. The damp, dust and odor proof package retains all the good ness and nutriment of the wheat, all the freshness of the best baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries. Your Uncle Sam has shown what food he thinks best for his people. His people have shown that they think Uneeda BiSCUit the best of that food, nearly 400,000,000 packages having already been consumed.
