Mr. H. M. Wilson.
An interesting lecture was given by Mr.
II. M. Wilson of the United States geological
survey before the members of the National
Geographic Society at Hubbard
Memorial Hall, 16th and M streets, last
evening, his subject being "Reclaiming the
Swamp l>ands." The speaker declared that
the lands in question will prove particularly
valuable if they are properly drained,
in order that some of the superabundance
til water may oe removea.
In showing the extent to which the reclaiming
and draining of the lands would
add to the wealth of the country Mr. Wilson
used maps, figures and estimates. There
are more than 60,000.000 acres of swamp
lands in the United States. He stated that
if it is possible to reclaim about half of that
amount the land values of the country
would bo increased by $2,000,000,000, and the
crop values by more than $700,000,000. Such
reclaimed lands would also furnish homes
and farms for about 1,250,000 families, and
place more than 6,000,000 persons on land
now worthless and uninhabited. The
speaker concluded his remarks by saying
that Congress is enthusiastic over the idea,
and he believes that in a short time a sufficient
appropriation will be made to begin
the reclamation.

Effort of Associated Charities to Help
.Frail Girl.
"To save and strengthen the life of a frail
young white girl" the Associated Charities
announces that it is In need of special contributions.
The girl is fifteen years of ace.
Her father died of tuberculosis, of which
her stepfather is dying, after a long struggle
on his part to continue supporting the
home. The mother, a woman of splendid
thrift and ability as a home-maker, is badly
worn by the long strain. She has bad eyesight
and nervous headaches. In addition
to the care of the house and the little children,
she does sewing nights and rents out 1

port falls on the girl. The doctor says it is
imperative that she be kept off her feet and
have nourishing food and fresh air. Instead,
she is now compelled to stand nine
hours a day clerking in a crowded store.
She breathes bad air all day. Her wages
are $3 a Week, and she often walks home,
a long distance, to save car fare. The
mother acknowledges that they have meat
only once a week, and the girl's diet la
chiefly bread and syrup. The family appears
to be suffering from malnutrition.
Under such conditions there is said to be
grave danger that tuberculosis will develop.
The agent and division conference of the
Associated Charities are anxious to make
up the $3 weekly and to assure the girl a
chance to rest from excessive toll and develop
strength for a year, the total cost to
be only- $136. A distant relative will give
the girl a long summer outing on a farm
if the family can be enabled to dispense
with her earnings.

Bill's Dreadful
Case of Eczema
Extended Over Entire Body?Mouth
Covered With Crusts as Thick as
Finger, Which Would Bleed and
Suppurate ? Disease Ate Large
Holes in Cheeks?Hands Pinned
Down to Stop Agonized Scratching?Three
Doctors' Best Efforts
Failed to Give Relief.
"When mj little boy was six months old be bad
eczema. The sores extended so quickly oyer the
whole body that we at once called In the doctor.
We then went to another doctor, but he could
Dot belp blm, and in oar despair we went to a
third one. Matters became so bad that he bad
regular holes In his cheeks, large enough to put a
finger into. The food had to be given with a
spoon, (or bis mouth was covered with crusts aa
thick as a finger, and whenever he opened the
mouth they began to bleed and suppurate, as did
also bis eyes. Hands, arms, chest, and back, in
abort, the whole body was covered over and over.
We bad 110 rest by day or night. Whenever he
was laid In bla bed. we had to pin his bands
down, otherwise he would scratch his (ace and
make an open sore. I think his face must have
itched most fearfully.
"We finally thought nothing could help, and I
had made up my mind to send my wife with the
child to Europe, hoping that the sea air might
cure him, otherwise he waa to be put under good
medical care there. But, Lord be blened. matters
came differently, and we aoon aaw a miracle. A.
friend of ours spoke about Cuticura. We made a
trial with Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Beaolrent,
and within ten days or two weeks we noticed a
decided improvement. Just as quickly at the sickness
bad appeared it also began to disappear, and
within ten weeks the child was absolutely well,
and his skin was smooth and white as never before.
