Mrs. Weiss and her children are now
being cared for by the Asso- lated
Charities, where funds will be received
for the sufferers. The widow is op
posed to becoming a public charge and
asks for an opportunity to support her
children. Among the first to make a
donation was Miss A. Norton, 477 Four

fund for Mrs. Weiss which will enable
her to become self-supporting.
"The amount is not large." said Miss
Norton, "but I hope that it will cause
others who are more able to give
than I am to help Mrs. Weiss. I was
touched with the account of Mrs.
Weiss' plight as given in The Call to

worthy of sympathy and should be
given a chance."
Efforts are now beinsr made to secure
employment for Mrs. Weiss and at the
same time permit her to retain the
custody of her children.

resqUs. Its popularity is bound to

With Eczema. Watery Blisters.
Disfigured and Sore. Could Not
Put Them in Water, Cuticura
Soap and Ointment Cured.
St. Clair, Mo.—"My trouble began about
fifteen years ago. 11 was what _omo claimed
eczema. The form the disease worked under
fwas a breaking out with
watery blisters on my
handa which would then
dry and scale, and then
would follow the trouble
of cracking and bleeding,
also itching and hurting.
My handa were disfigured
at the time, and sore.
The trouble waa very
annoying, and disturbed my sleep. Thia
last February It was ever so much worse
than before. I did not do all my work on
account of the condition of my hands. I
could not put them In —ater without mak
ing them worse. I tried a lot of home
remedies, also salves and liniments that
claimed to be a cure for the trouble, but
I did not obtain a euro.
"At last I sa*~ the advertisement for
Cuticura Soap and Ointment. I sent for
a sample. I thought they would cure, so
I sent for a fifty-cent box of Cuticura
. Ointment and some Cuticura Soap. A
doctor advised me to keep ahead with the
Cuticura Soap and Ointment and they cured
mo completely. No trace of the trouble
remains." (Signed) Mrs. Mary Taylor,
Mar. 29, 1912.
