"My trouble began with little red
pimples that grew larger, and they
became sore eruptions. They scaled
over and were all over my body, and
they festered. They itched and burned
until I could hardly sleep. I had this
trouble every winter for ten years.
"I used lots of sahres but they did
not do any good. Then I used Cuti
cQxa Soap and Ointment, and I used
two boxes of Cuticura Ointment with
three cakes of Cuticura Soap when I
was healed." (Signed) Mrs. M. Poole,

If your skin is already healthy and
dear keep it so by using Cuticura
Soap for toilet purposes assisted by
touches of Cuticura Ointment to soothe
and heal any tendency to irritation, red
ness or roughness of the skin or scalp.

P. H. Gadsden Says Whole
Structure Has Broken Down
Under Strain.
1 NEW YORK, November 1.?Philip I
H. Gadsden, chairman of the national!
committee on public utility conditions
and resident Washington member of j
the war board of the American Elec
tric Railway Association, spoke at the i
annual meeting of the electric railway
war board here today, lie said, in
part: "
?The whole structure of the fran
chise relationship between electric
railways and the various communities'
has broken down under the strain of
the war. The rapid Increase In the
cost of all material, the extraordinary
demands of labor made necessary by
the rise in the cost of living, the
alarming decrease In the purchasing
power of the nickel, have brought the
electric railways of this .Country face
to face with bankruptcy.
I "Practically every other industry
| except public utilities, whose rates
| are regulated by law, has been able
1 readily to adjust its method of doing
I business to meet the war demands
| and the radical increase in the cost of
I operations and of manufactures have
been promptly reflected in the sell
ing price, and so passed on to the con
sumer. In all other departments of
our commercial and industrial life
where the economic laws of supply
and demand have been unhampered
and. allowed free play, the Inevitable
increase in the cost or production has
been taken care of In the perfectly
normal way of increased cost to the
Public Is Blamed.
"It la only In those Industries where
the public has attempted to flx a just
I and fair price for service rendered
and where the artificial standard has
: been substituted for the natural one,
that we find this complete breakdown
under war conditions.
Industry generally was never so
prosperous, notwithstanding the In
crease in the cost of labor and mate
rial. The public utilities, and espe
cially the electric railways, present
practically the only exception to this
rule of prosperity. They, on the con
trary, are steadily being destroyed
by the war.
"A tabulation of 388 electric rail
ways, representing over 63 per cent
of the electric mileage of the United
States, shows a falling off in income
of 82 per cent for the first six months
of 1918 as compared with the corre
sponding period of last year. Many
of the companies are facing an actual
operating deficit in spite of the in
crease in gross receipts. The scale of
wages established by the National
War Labor Board In cases already
decided, when applied to the Indus- i
try generally, will add over J100,- !
000,000 to its already greatly in
creased operating expenses.
"As a consequence of the rapidly
mounting costs of operation and the
steadily declining net income, the
financial standing of the electric
railways has been seriously affected,
and it is no looser possible to at
tract new capital for the efficient
operation of the properties in the
interest of the public.
'The electric railway must stagger
along under the five-cent fare for
months until its credit is destroyed,
its service impaired, its equipment de
teriorated and it has become obvious
to the commurUty that It is on the
brink of destruction before its case
has been sufficiently made out to
justify an increase in its rate.
Readjustment Problem.
"Of all the problems of readjustment
which this nation will have to meet
and solve after the war, none will be
more serious or more difficult than
that of the electric railway Industry.
In the light of our experience as em
phasized by war conditions, it is man
ifest that to insure the efficient opera
tion of the electric railways of the
country after the war there must be
a recasting of the- entire basis of the
relationship existing between the
electric railways and the communities
they serve.
"In many cases electric railway
franchises, which had become to be
considered as valuable assets. In the
light of recent experience have been
proved to be liabilities. Already there
is growing recognition of this fact in
different parts of the country, as evi
denced by the 'operation at cost
plans recently adopted In Boston. Chi
cago and Cincinnati."
