Saturday Evening,
Shed Dustpanful of Scales Every
Night. Startling Story
of Suffering.
After Doctors and Hospitals Pronounced Case Incur-
ablePrayed for DeathBody a Mass of Dis-
ease, Skin Cracked, Nails Fell Off, Hair Dead
and LifelessBlessed Relief from First Appli-
cation of CuticuraCured in Six Weeks.
I have been afficted for twenty years with an obstinate skin disease,
called by some M. Ds. Psoriasis, and others Leprosy, commencing on my
scalp: and in spite of all I could do, with the help of the most skilful doctors,
it slpwly but surely extended until a year ago this winter it covered my entire
person in the form of dry scales. For the last three years I have been unable
to do any labor, and suffering intensely all the time. Every morning there
would be nearly a dustpanful of scales taken from the sheet on my bed, some
of them half as large as the envelope containing this letter. In the latter
part of winter my skin commenced cracking open. I tried everything,
almost, that could be thought of, without any relief. The 12th of June I
started West, in hopes I could reach the Hot Springs. I reached Detroit
and was so low I thought I should have to go to the hospital, but finely got
as far as Lansing, Mich., where I had a sister living. One Dr. treated
me about two weeks, but did me no good. All thought I had but a short
time to live. I earnestly prayed to die. Cracked through the skin all over
my back, across my ribs, arms, hands, limbs feet badly swollen toe-nails
came off finger-nails dead and hard as a bone hair dead, dry, and lifeless
as old straw. 0 my God! how I did suffer.
My sister, Mrs. E. H. Davis, had a small part of a box Cuticura in
the house. She wouldn't give up said, "We will try Cuticura." Some was
applied on one hand and arm. Eureka! there was relief stopped the terrible
burning sensation from the word go. They immediately got Cuticura Re-
solvent, Ointment and Soap. I commenced by taking one tablespoonful of
Cuticura Resolvent three times a day after meals had a bath once a day,
water about blood heat used Cnticura Soap freely applied Cuticura Oint-
ment morning and evening. Result: returned to my home in just six wTeeks
from the time I left, and my skin as smooth as this sheet of paper.

Cure Permanent, March 20, '05
The above testimonial was given us in 1880, twenty-five years ago, and
is published at this time to show that the cure was permanent, as Mr. Car-
penter himself states in the following letter, written March 20, 1905: I
have never suffered with the disease since. The Cuticura remedies should
come to the knowledge of every one troubled with skin diseases. They have
genuine merit. If my own case had been the only one it would be different,
but several cases have come to my knowledge just as wonderful as my own.
I am now in my seventy-fourth year and in pretty good health.
(Signed), 'HIRAM E. CARPENTER, Henderson, N. Y., March 20, 1905."
The above is only one of many marvelous cures made by the Cuticura
remedies. In this case, the cure not only meant escape from terrible suffer-
ing and freedom from disfiguration, but undoubtedly prolonged his life, as it
is not probable that he could have lived in the condition he was before cured
by Cuticura, after trying all known remedies without any benefit, and after
having been pronounced incurable by Doctors and Hospitals.

The Action Is Fostered by Workers in
the Antisaloon LeagueA Oonven
tion-Winnng Delegation Will Be Sent
to National Gathering This Year.
Minneapolis Christian Endeavorers, at
their union meeting in the Fifth Pres
byterian church last night, adopted res
olutions requesting Mayor Jones to close
the saloons on Sunday. The resolutions
were introduced and favored by R. B.
Stevens of the Antisaloon league, who
stated also that he had a huge petition
covering the same matter which is to
bo presented to the mayor. Rev. N. A.
Palmer of the Antisaloon League spoke
along the same line and urged that the
members of the legislature be asked to
enlist in the cause.
R. B. Kenvon introduced a resolution
which will change the unit of repre
sentation in the national organization.
At the present time the individual so
ciety is the unit, but the resolution pro
poses'to make the various city unions

and will be considered at the Baltimore

The Nicollet grandstand and bleach
ers were crowded with men, women and
boys to see the national game. Before
us lay the "diamond," green and
clean. The teams were playing ball
to win. When one side did well, there
as a shout and a clapping of hands
on the part of its friends, and when it
failed, the other side gave forth a wave
of enthusiasm which roared like the
sea against the shore.
At a time when the score was tied,
and the interest was greatest, our best
man came to the bat. struck a
foul, and I watched the ball as it
sailed over the grandstand roof. While
looking up, I saw two little birds in
the rafters overhead. They were fly
ing in and out, chirping and chanting
their innocent joy as they brought wisps
of hay and straw to make their nest.
After this, my attention was divided
between their work and the boys play
ing. N matter how noisy we were,'or
how strangely we acted as we jumped
up and down and waved our hats and
umbrellas, the birds came and went un
concerned and unmolested, for there
as a nest to build, eggs to hatch, and
little bundles of feathers to care for,
until they could stretch their necks
and flap their wings and fly out into
the blue sky.
St. Francis once saw some birds and
preached them a little sermon, telling
them to praise their Creator who had
fed and clothed them, given the air
to fly in? and the trees in which to
build their nests.
This time pulpits were exchanged, and
the birds preached a sermon to me.
'The sparrows chirped as if they still
were proud,
Their race in Holy Writ should men
tioned be."
They told me of the poverty of Him
who said, "The birds of the air have
nests but the Son of Man hath not
where to lay His head.''
They spoke of the care of Him who
said, "Behold the fowls of the air, for
they sow not, neither do they reap nor
gather into barns yet your heavenly
Father feedeth them. Are not much
better than they?"
They declared the compassion of Him
who said, "Are not two sparrows sold
for a farthing*? And one of them shall
not fall on the ground without your
Father. Fear ye not therefore, ye are
of more value than many sparrows.
I went away thinking how above the
crowd and confusion these birds were
building their nests, safe in starry night
and sunny day, where wind and ram
could not shake or destroy.
It is possible for our winged souls
to rise above the din and dust of this
earth and make a home in the boughs
of the tree of life.
"The sparrow hath found a house,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young.

Proof Found In Investigation of Child
Labor Permits.
Since Oct. 1, 1904, the Associated Char
ities has investigated 250 applications for
child labor permits. The permits are
asked for by parents who allege that pov
erty compels the taking of the children
from the schools. Superintendent Jordan
of the public schools intends to elimi
nate imposition and the cases have been
referred to the Associated Charities. In
more than two-thirds of them it was
found that the parents were shirking
their responsibility and the children were
far better off in school.
Municipal Judge C. L. Smith has found
that most of the juvenile cases of crime
are confmitted by children having child
labor permits. This is especially true of
girls.* The records show that children
kept in school rarely come in contact
with the police.
In many cases better-paying work has
been found for the older members of the
family and in some cases aid has been
given until the children are thru school.

Regina, N. W. T., May 17.With every
rising tide of prosperity comes the desire
for acresthe universal land lust of the
human race. Men awake to the fact that
land is the only wealth or source of wealth
that does not take wing. They become
convinced that the ownership of land is
the surest guarantee of a competence in
the future.
And this universal land lust, which
spreads like an epidemic over the entire
civilized world every twenty years, seems
to be the only phase of what Is known as
"speculative fever" that is based on the
logic of material facts, and, paradoxical
as it may seem, it is the only speculation
in which there is no element of specula
Regina was, and is the result of such an
awakening. The growth of the city to its
present greatness has hinged upon two
pointsconnection by railroad with the
east and south and development of the
territories of the great northwest. Slow
as the beginning of her development
seemed in coming, it did come Anally. And
today Regina looks proudly out over the
vast stretches of a new empire, the gov
ernment seat and the commercial and dis
tributing center of the new provinces of
Saskatchewan, Canada.
Population and Institutions.
The city of Regina has a population of
more than 7,000. Besides being the capi
tal of the new province, it is the head
quarters as well of the royal northwest
mounted police. It is, too, the usual place
for the sessions of the supreme court.
There are also a land titles office and a
district Dominion lands office for entries
and other business connected with the
transfer of land, and there is a large com
modious Dominion immigration building.
There are five schools in the city, as well
as a high school and a normal school, and
schools are plentiful thruout the district.
There are four weekly newspapers and one
daily newspaper, an active board of trade,
a live agricultural association, five branch
es of chartered banks, with a total capi
tal of $23,000,000, a club, five hotels, many
boarding houses and restaurants, while as
to merchandise every branch is supplied
by large and well-stocked stores. There
are 170 elevators, with a capacity of 6,000,-
000 bushels, in the district, and a flour
mill in the city. Within a radius of 150
miles are 200 stores, doing a grocery busi
ness of $2,000,000 a year.
The municipal government of the city is
intrusted to an elected council, consisting
of mayor and aldermen. A vigorous pol
icy of municipal ownership and operation
of franchises has been inaugurated. The
result is that Regina has an up-to-date
electric light service Which makes it the
b'est-llghted city in the northwest: while
a constant supply Into the houses of bet
ter water than is found anywhere else has
followed the recent construction of a
splendid gravitation waterworks system.
An equally excellent drainage and sewer
age system is at present in course of com
pletion. The streets and avenues are be
ing boulevarded.

railroad bisects the city, which is also the

Regina today is the only railway center
between Winnipeg and Calgary, a dis

situated about midway between the two

the markets in both hemispheres sending
the produce of the surrounding district
eastward to Old Canada and Europe, and
westward to Japan and the Orient.
Great, Rich Farm Lands.
The land in the immediate vicinity of
Regina is as good and fertile as that in
any part of the continent of America, the
soil to the south and north of the railway
track being particularly rich. Generally
speaking, the characteristic of the land is
a black, clayey loam three or four feet
deep, with a subsoil of clay. It produces
the finest wheat and for vegetables and
garden produce the Regina district cannot
be surpassed anywhere in the world, mar
ket gardeners retailing their produce to
places 40 miles away. According to the of
ficial bulletin of the government, the av
erage yield per acre of spring wheat in
the Regina district during the last seven
years was 20.96 bushels, a figure that is
not reached by any other locality in the
There are no impediments against at
once starting farming operations, as the
land does not require cleaning, tho by the
sides of the creeks there are surface stones
that are found useful for building. The
prairie offers unlimited pasture for count
less cattle, and there is an abundance of
wild hay. Thus mixed farming has been
found the most profitable, as a rule, tho
there are not wanting those who have
confined themselves exclusively to cattle,
and others exclusively to wheat-growing.
Swine and sheep have not hitherto been
reared to a great extent, but wherever
tried success has followed. Both indus
tries'are growing, and as a packinghouse
and abattoir is now established in Re
gina, there is little doubt swine-raising
will be an important item in the income of
As already indicated, the facilities for
marketing are all that can be desired. The
city itself, combined with the police bar
racks, affords a market for a considerable
amount of agricultural produce, while the
shipments of grain, cattle and dairy pro
duce to both the east and the west are a
source of considerable profit to the farm
ers thruout the district.
Prosperity and Progress.
In 1898 the Regina Board of Trade issued
a leaflet in which it was stated that there
was abundant land available for free
homesteading, and that there was also
land for sale at $1 an acre. A second edi
tion of the leaflet, issued in 1901. put the
price of land at $3 to $6. All this is now
changed. The increase in the cultivated
area thruout the district, the rapid growth
of the city itself and the large increase in
commercial undertakings have greatly in
creased the value of real estate. There
are no free homesteads except in the new
districts north of Regina, while raw prai
rie now fetches $8 to $15 an acre.
These are not "boom" prices. They are
indications of natural prosperity, follow-

itself. Rates are lower than In the United

Canada and the United States have erect

capital in these absolutely necessary busi
ness enterprises, which can be placed on a
paying basis from the start.
Who Should Come.
As to the sort of immigrantc for which
the district is best adapted, it follows
from what has been said above that men
who can work are the men wanted.
As already intimated, the soil is some
what heavy, "and breaking requires some,
force. Industry and strength, therefore,
are what are required. Possessed of these,
no Intending settler needs to fear. Men
came into Regina district without a cent
when the district first opened up twenty
three years ago. They now grow hun
dreds of acres of wheat and own from*
seventy-five to one hundred head of cat
tle. At the same time, those -who had
some capital got on best, or, at any rate,
quickest. A man with nothing has obvi
ously to devote some portion of his time
to earning his living and to getting tho
wherewithal to start farming operations.
His advancement is therefore compara
tively slow. If the new settler, however,
can get at once on his land in the sum
mer, he can prepare a considerable acre
age for seeding the next year, and the"de
velopment of his farm is rapid.
How to Come.
An 'intending settler from the Unite*
States should obtain a certificate front
the Canadian Northwest Land settlement
agent, purchase a ticket to the nearest
connecting point on the Canadian Pacific
raiiroad, and on arrival there, present
his certificate, in exchange for which he,
will receive for himself and any member*
of his family accompanying him, as*
enumerated on certificate, a ticket to Re--
gina at a very low rate, which will be
learned from the agent before starting.
Should the settler after acquiring land de
sire to return for his family, he will bo
accorded a similar rate returning. In
formation as to special rates on settlers*
effects in carloads, or less than carloads,
will be given on application to the set
tlement agent, or any agent of the Cana-J
dian Pacific Railway company. Settlers*}
effects are admitted into Canada
free^ of*I d"ty.
All of the information contained in tho
foregoing article is verified in a compre
hensive pamphlet issued this week bjr
the board of trade of Regina. The pam
phlet is published and circulated for the
benefit of intending immigrants to the
new provinces of Saskatchewan. Mr.
William Trant, secretary of the board of
trade, has notified The Journal that
he will be glad to furnish detailed infor-4
mation, and to answer all questions re-|
garding Regina upon application.
What has been written here about tho*
Empress City of the new northwest con
sists of a few plain facts which should
constitute in itself a strong appeal to
homeseekers of the United States. y_
Mr. Pearson's purpose in issuing the cir
cular showing the results of this petition
is to demonstrate conclusively to all home
seekers the progress of the district foi
which he stands sponsor. The circular has
"caught on."
Here is an extract from the petition:
"We have no hesitation in expressing our
belief, from what have seen of this dis
trict, that the Last Mountain \alley when
fully developed as a wheat growing local
ity will be easily equal to the Indian Head
country or Portage Plains. Fully 90 per
cent of it is good arable land. The aver
age yield for several years has been well
over twenty-five bushels per acre, and the
bulk of it generally grades No 1 hard and
No. 1 northern. At date of this petition,
Sept. 9, 1904, harvest is practically over,
there having been no trace of damagtt
from frost or rust."
The circular Is a clever bit of advertis
ing and is arousing a great deal of interest
this side of the line. It is significant to
those Americans who are planning to
come into Canada, as it demonstrates
clearly what 250 settlers think of this
choice section of the Saskatchewan,
where land can be bought for $9 or $10
an acre. William Pearson is already re
ceiving substantial returns at his offices
"Winnipeg, Regina and elsewhere as a re
sult of his circular.
I 160 to 10,000 acres
