FACE DISFIGURE)
WITH ECZEMA
Covered with Eruption to Back of
Ears So They Hardly KneW What
He Looked Like, UsedCuticura
Soap and Ointment. In 4
Weeks Face Fineand Clean.
"Our little boy Gilbert was troubled
with eczema when but a few weeks old.
His little fac? was
covered with sores even
to back of ids cars.
The poor little fellow
suffered yery much.
The gores began as
pimples, his little face
was disfigured very
much. We hardly knew
what he looked like.
The face looked lika
raw meat. V.'e tied
little bags of cloth over
his hands to prevent
him from scratching.
He was very restless
at night, his little face
Itched.
" We consulted two
doctors at Chicago, where we resided at that
time. After trying all the medicine of the
two doctors without any result, we read of the
Cuticura Remedies, and at once bought the
Cuticura Soap and Ointment. Following the
directions carefully and promptly we saw the
result, and after four weeks, the dear child's
face was as fine and clean as any little baby's
face. Every one who saw Gilbert after using
ths Cuticura Remedies was surprised. Ha
has a bead of hah which is a pride for any
boy of his age, three years. We can only
recommend tno Cuticura Remedies to every?
body." (Signed) Mrs. H. Albrecht, Bor S83.

Argument Will Be Had After
Additional Exhibits Have
Been Filed.
Taking of testimony on the peti?
tion of the railroad companies for a
requirement that cast-iron stoves
shipped In less than ccrload lots shall
be crated, catno to an end yesterday
A large amount of additional detailed
information concerning shipments,
claims for damage and kindred mat?
ters were asked for by the State Cor?
poration Commission and by the at?
torneys from each other. Argument
will had after all those additions'
exhibits have been filed, which will
probably not be for two or thre?
weeks.
General cordial Invitations marked
the close of the proceedings. C. V
[Meredith asked th<-- commission to visit
the works of the Richmond Stove Com?
pany and the Southern Stove Company,
of this city, to see how Virginia stoves
are made, packed and snipped. Not to
be outdone in courtesy, C. ii. Northrop,
of the Southern Railway, Invited the
commissioners to "come, down and look
at the cars in which stoves are
handled." To this Luden H. Cocke, of
the Norfolk and Western, added a bid i
to accompany a shipment of stoves
from the starting point to its dostina
I lion, provided the commission would
go at its own risk.
I.ONWCN Slight.
E. T. Harrison. treasurer of the
Southern Stove Works, presented some
llgures regarding losses of stoves in
transit- For the nine months from
.January 1 to October 1, 1910* his con
I cent shipped away from Richmond to
! points in Virginia; of castiron stoves
I or stoves with castiron tips or hot
I turns, a total of 5,072. The weight was
996,574 pounds. Out of this total
which embraces Intrastate shipments
I only, three were claims made for break- j
age of twenty-four stoves, with a total !
damage of J7J.S4. m his was intended
to show that tlit loss on Virginia
built stoves is inconsiderable.
F. P. Loth, general manager of the
Loth Stove Company, of Wrlynoshoro.
Va., was the next and last w itness.
He estimated that -he cost of crating
to the manufacturers, on a stove of a ;
certain average sized oven would be
from 40 to 50 cents. This would not j
include freight. On cross-examination
I by Mr. Northrop, ?.5r. Loth said that
j the cost of production was ascertained
J by a system which allowed for what
i is known as diffused cost. In this,
I everything which is an item of expense
' is taken into account. He admitted
that the prices of interstate stoves
which are now required to be crated
are higher, but he thought hardly
enough to cover the additional cost. I
The Idea in this line of testimony was
j to show that the extra cost would not
' fall upon the manufacturers.
Mr. Loth told Mr. Meredith, on direct!
examination, that, in handling stoves;
in the warehouse on a concrete floor,
j they were piled on top of each other,
end lie Relieved not one In a thousand
was broken there. He described the
manufacturing process in detail.

WOMAN SUFFERS
TERRIBLE PAIN
Letter From Bigstone Gap, Va.,
Describing Experience of
Mrs. Lawson in That City
Bigstone Gap, Va.?" I suffered for
four years," writes Mrs. Elizabeth Law
son, of this place, "with terrible pains in
the small of my back and in my left. side.
I tried three doctors, but the medicine I
took from them did mc no good.
At last I was advised by a friend to
take Cardui, and I took one bottle. It
did mc so much good that I got a second
bottle, and can say that Cardui did mc
more good than all the doctors.
I feel like a new woman now, and am
well and rid of all my troubles. I would
like to tell every suffering woman about
my experience with Cardui, for it cer?
tainly has cured me."
If you are weak and ailing, think what
it. would mean to recover as rapidly and
surely as did Mrs. Lawson.
For more than 50 years this strength
building remedy, Cardui, has been used
by thousands of ladies, who found it of
untold value in relieving womanly pains
and ailments.
No medicine without merit could remain
in such constant, daily use, and remain
so popular as Cardui.
Cardui has brought health and happi?
ness to thousands of women.
Try it yourself.

Procession is FdrmiMli
With the end of the service the of
11 ein ting clergymen retired to the sa?
cristy, where the procession for the
pontifical m.tss of requiem was formed,
First came the cathedral altar boys,]
then the seminarians from the Over- '?
brook Seminary, who chanted for the'
mass, then the bishops, priests und- i
archbishops. Last came the officers of
the mass, including Cardinal Gibbons,
who presided, and Bishop l'rendet gast,
auxiliary of this archdiocese, who was
the celebrant. With them walked Mon
signor Falconlo, the papal delegate to
the United states, representing the
Pope, ami Archbishop Glepnon, of St.
Louis, who preached the funeral ser?
mon. There were thrones for the papal
delegate, the cardinal atid archbishops.
The throne of the dead archbishop re?
mained vacant.
When all the dignitaries, dressed in
full pontificals, had reached their
places, the scene was beautiful, ais well I
as solemn. The mellow lights of the
candles, the rich vestments of the high
churchmen and the more subdued rai?
ment of the other clergy made a picture
of splendor probably never before seen
at a funeral in this city. Bishop Pren- '
dcrgast was assisted in pontificating
by Consignor Turner, vice-chancellor
of the archdiocese.
During the offertory of the mass
there was singing by the prb sts of the
archdiocese, famous for their voices.
Following the reading of the gospel
at 11 o'clock. Archbishop i Mention as?
cended the pulpit and delivered the
funeral sermon, it wa-i an eloquent
tribute to Archbishop Ryan as priest j
and man, and brought tears to the eyes
of many in the assemblage. Follow?
ing (he mass, John MeCbrmlek, the op?
eratic tenor, sang a solo. The absolu?
tion of the body was quintuple and was .
pronounced by five of the attending
prelates, one of them being the cardi?
nal.
100,000 People See Proersslou.
With this final rite of the church
concluded the body was conveyed down
the mailt aisle to the front door, where
it was placed on a funeral carriage.
Then, with the features of the beloved
metropolitan exposed^-to view, a pro?
cession was formed which moved around
.the four sides of Lagan Square, which
is opposite the cathedral, and comprises
four largo city blocks. Directly behind
the carriage came the seminarians, and
following these In the order named,
came the diocesan clergy, the various
religious bodies of the diocese, the
hislting clergy, the monsignorl, the
bishops, the archbishops and finally,
the cardinal and the apostolic delegate.
ft Is estimated that nearly 100,000
persons saw the unusual and solemn
procession as It wended its way slow?
ly around the square. Seven hundred
and fifty policemen kept perfect order.
With the return of rlie cortege to the
cathedral the body of the archbishop
was conveyed to the crypt beneath the i
altar, where the final scene took place.
The beautiful couch casket containing I
the body was sealed In a. leaden case j
before it was ento'mbed, and while this |
