Eczema Broke Out Also on Hands
and Limbs—Suffering Intense
Doctors Said Too Old to Be
Cured —An Old Soldier of 80
Years Declares:
“At all times and to all people I am
willing to testify to the merits of Cu
ticura. It saved me from worse than
the tortures of hades, about the year
1900, with itching on my scalp and
temples, and afterwards it commenced
to break out on my hands. Then it
broke out on my limbs. I was advised
to use salt and water, which 1 did, to
no effect. I then went to a Surgeon, who
commenced treating me with a wash of
borax. This treatment did me no good,
but rather aggravated the disease. I
then told him I would go and see a phy
sician in Erie. The reply was that I
could go anywhere, but a case of
eczema like mine could not be cured;
that I was too old (80 ). I went to an
eminent doctor in the city of Erie and
treated with him for six months, with
like results. I had read of the Cu
ticura Remedies often. I was strongly
tempted to give them a trial, so 1 sent
for the Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and
Resolvent and continued taking the
Resolvent until I bad taken six bottles,
stopping it to take the Fills. I was now
getting Better. I took two baths a day,
and at night I let the lather of the Soap
dry on. I used the Ointment with
great effect after washing in warm
water, to stop the itching at onoe. I
am now cured.
“The Cuticura treatment is a blessing
and should be used by every one who
has itching of the skin. I can't say any
more, ancfthank God that He has given
the world such a curative. You can
nee this letter as you please. A very
much befriended man, Wm. H. Gray,
3308 Mt. Vernon St., Philadelphia, Pa.,
August 2, 1905."

termination. T would, therefore, recom
mend that the struggle be continued In
the same manner that has marked its
progress in the past, until at last, as I
firmly believe, victory will crown our ef
forts. and wo may again enjoy peace In
the mining industries of Alabama, such as
prevailed for many years prior to 1904.
While much more may he paid in praise
of the men who are on strike for their
loyalty to the cause they espouse. It
must not be forgotten that there are those
who have had employment during the
period of strike of whom T feel as though
the most glowing tribute that I could ut
ter would not do them justice for the
noble manner In which they have respond
ed to the call for assistance from the less
fortunate brothers (the strikers) com
mands for them greater and nobler recog
nition than has been accorded any miners
in the history of strikes.
Loyalty Shown.
I “Not only have the working miners
shown much loyalty to the striking min
ers but never in the history of our or
ganization in Alabama have they put
forth such efforts to keep inviolate the
contracts that we hail entered Into with
the operators, as has been done during
the contract year now about to close.
“Only in one instance has It occurred
that a mine has been laid idle on account
of any grievance that has arisen. This
instance occurred at Coleanor, where on
Wednesday, May 30, the drivers refused
to go into the mines because one of their
number had been discharged on account
of his mule being crippled. ’Phe mine com
mittee, nor the miners, however, were to
blame for the stoppage, for when the driv
ers refused to work after the mine com
mittee had used all efforts to induce
them to do so, several miners were ready
and willing to take the places of the
drivers had they been requested by the
company to do so. This matter was ad
justed by Board Member Wallwork and
tile drivers returned to work the follow
ing day.
“As you are all aware of the fact t'hat
tite mining laws of Alabama are lament
ably deficient and that during the last
year or so two explosions have taken
place in our state that have dealt death
and destruction to our miners, nnd as our
state legislature meets but once In four
i years, ihe opportunities for creating new'
mining laws or amending the present form
of lawn that we now have In force' are
not very good. As tills Is the year that the
legislature meets I would recommend to
this convention t'hat the executive Itoard
he empowered to select a committee to
lie known as a legislative committee for
the purpose of endeavoring to secure bet
ter mining laws.

The report of Vice President B. L.

a number of locals, made addresses and
aided the other officers in the work in
the district.
A telegram was read from National
Secretary and Treasurer W. B. Wilson

ham today to attend the session of the !

from National Committeeman Fairley, j

There was nothing of notable impor
tance reported in local real estate circles,
lut the general good condition which 'has
prevailed for the past two months or
more continues. Local agents report a
demand for high prices on all grades of
favorably located real estate, and the
general tendency which prevails is ap
parently to hold property for the rush of
the season, when prices are expected to
advance to even higher levels. There is no
mercantile property whatever offered for
sale at reasonable prices.
