SOOTHING WASH CURES ECZEMA Oil of Winternreen Compounded Ap pears to Have Solved a Vex ing Medical Problem. One of the most, vexing problems in all medicine appears at last to have been"solved by the most simple of all remedies. Ordinary oil of wintergreen prOperly compounded with thymol, glycerine and other mild healing licj uids, builds up the healthy skin while killing and ultimately removing the eczema germs. This compound, known as D. D. D. Prescription, has now so thoroughly proven its efficacy that druggists rec ommend it unhesitatingly. Years of success and thousands of cures* have converted even those who seemed convinced that there was "no cure for eczema." The sheriff of Franklin Co.. Frank fort. Ky.. Mr. W. H. Graham, writes: "My twelve-year old daughter had ijy a large number of been suffering with an aggravated form of Eczema for more than two years. We had her under the care of the best physicians here.

But don't trifle with Indigestion. A great many people who have trifled with indigestion, have been sorry for it—when nervous or chronic dyspepsia resulted, and they have not been able to cure it lTs'e Kodol and prevent having Dyspepsia. Everyone ts subject to indiges tion. Stomach derangement follows stomach abuse, just as naturally and just as surely as a sound and healthy stomach results upon the taking of Kodol. When you experience sourness of stomach, belching of gas and nauseating fluid, bloated sensation, gnawing pain in the pit of the stomach, heart burn (so-called), diarrhoea, headaches, dullness or chronic tired feeling—you need Ko dol. And then the quicker you take Kodol—the better. Eat what you want, let Kodol digest it. Ordinary pepsin "dyspepsia tab lets," physics, etc., are not likely to be of much benefit to you, in digestive aliments. Pepsin is only and arduous duties undermined his health and for that reason he sold out and went into the grain business, buying grain at Vincennes and the surrounding towns.
