WANT CRUMPACKtR FOR THE SPEAKER KNEE TO ANKLE A PAGE EIGHT. MASS OF HUMOR Moire Suffering Simply Indescribable Had to Scratch Till Blood Ran Health Undermined from Lack of Sleep Gave Up Hope but CUTICURA FREED HIM FROM SKIN-TORMENT Indiana Congressman Is Re ceiving Letters From All Over Country. "About seven years ago a araall abrm lion appeared on my right leg just above my ankle, it irritated me bo that I began to scratch it and it began to spread until my lfg from my ankle to the knee was one solid scale like a scab. The irritation was always worse at night and would not allow me to sleep, or my wife either, and it was completely under mining our health. I lost fifty pounds In weight and was almost out of my mind with pain and chagrin as no matter where the irrita tion came, at wont, on tne street or in the presence of company, I would have to scratch it until 1 had the blood running down into my shoe. I simply cannot describe my suffering during those seven years. The pain, mortifi cation, loss of sleep, both to myself and wife is simply indescribable on paper and one has to experience it to know what it is. "I tried all kinds of doctors and remedies but I might as well have thrown my money down a sewer. They would dry it up for a little while and fill me with hope only to break out again just as bad if not worse. I had given up hope of ever being cured when I was induced by my wife to give the Cu tic ura Remedies a trial. After taking the Cuticura Remedies for a little while I began to see a change and after taking a dozen bottles of Cuticura Resolvent, in conjunction with the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, the trouble had entirely disappeared and my leg was as fine as the day I was born. Now after a lapse of six months with no signs of a recurrence I feel perfectly safe in ex tending to you my heartfelt thanks for the good the Cuticura Remedies have done for tne. I shall always recom mend them to my friends. W. H. "White, 312 E. Cabot St., Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. A and Apr. 13, 1909." Cutlrurs Remedies arc told throughout the world. Potter Drug . Cham. Corp..

I IS HEADY Its Debating Team Perfectly Willing to Tackle the Earlhamites. MAY ISSUE A CHALLENGE Efforts are being made to arrange a debate between the local high school and Earlham college to take place some time in the near future. Earl ham selected her debating team last night, which consists of V. C. Nichol Bon, Chester Haworth and Homer Mor ris. The high school team was chosen several days ago and is composed of Aisle French, Clifford Plummer and Helen Sparks. It is said that the larger institution, by no means would have a walkaway with its more inex perienced competitors. During recent years the high school pupils have been thoroughly drilled in the art of debate and can hold up their side of the ar gument on almost any question. A challenge will probably be issued to the new debating team of Earlham. The high school team is not at all par ticular about the subject to be de bated but is perfectly willing to take either the affirmative or negative to any question that may be selected. Washington, Jan. Representa tive Crum packer, of the Tenth Indiana district is receiving letters from all over the country, but particularly from his own state, urging him to be a can didate for speaker of the house to suc ceed Mr. Cannon. Mr. Crumpacker is making no statement in reference to the matter, but is permitting things to drift. It is believed here in Wash ington that the congressman from the Tenth district is not averse to getting into the race. It Is being urged on him by his friends that he is not a radical man on either side of the present con troversy in the house over the faction al troubles surrounding Speaker Can non. It is welUknown that Mr. Crumpack er has ideas of his own about modify ing the rules that govern the house, but he is not a radical insurgent. He is looked on as a man having convictions on the standpatters or insurgents, and his friends are telling him that he could expect to draw support from both sides. It is pointed out that as chairman of the committee on the census Mr. Crumpacker would exercise great pow er in the congressional reapportion ment that always follows the taking of the decennial census. On this account he Will have great influence with the members of the house, and it is thought that many of them would line up for him for the speakership on this account. Cox Offers Pension Bill. Representative Cox, of the Third In diana district, introduced his dollar a day pension bill yesterday. In speaking of it, he said: "We are now forty-nine years from the begin ning of that great conflict between the slates and forty-five years from its close. I do not know the average age of the old veterans at this time, but I imagine it is now more than three score years and ten, and if ever the government intends to redeem this promise made to the soldiers, it is time it were doing it during their 02 ftlne Hfitteeinittttu AeMversairy EveiryttMinijij Ecdmceal Wfielter Clcaramice Sale The close of business oh Saturday evening marks the end of our most successful sale.

Mo (Co COo DC Why does Great Britian buy its oatmeal of us? Certainly it seems like carrying coals to Newcastle to speak of export ing oatmeal to Scotland and yet, every year the Quaker Oats Company sends hundreds of thousands of cases of Quaker Oats to Great Britian and Europe. The reason is simple; while the English and Scotch have for centuries eaten oatmeal in quantities and with a regularity that has made them the most rugged physically, and active mentally of all people, the American has been eating oatmeal and trying all the time to improve the methods of manufacture so that he might get that desirable foreign trade. How well he has succeeded would be seen at a glance at the export re ports on Quaker Oats. This brand is without a rival; is packed in regular 10c packages, and in hermetically seal ed tins for hot climates. 51 lives and not wait until a vast major ity of them are dead. Statistics show that they are dying at the rate of for ty thousand a year, and according to t'.ie law of nature, it can be but a few more years until the last roll call will be answered, and the last sound cf the fife and drum will be heard so far as the soldier himself is concern ed, and I believe it to be our Chris tian duty as a nation, as well as our duty as legislators, not to only say nice things about these old heroes while living, but to do something for them in the way of passing a pension law which will take care of them in their old and declining days. Dollar a Day Better. "There is no comfort to the indivi dual to wait until he is dead nor to his relatives and then say and do nice things for him. Do it and do it now, while a few of the old guard are still standing around the camp fires of life, patiently awaiting the fulfillment of the promises often made to them by the government, and by doing this we will be but fulfilling the promise of 3 grateful nation. I do not believe it is wise entirely to abandon soldier, homes, because I believe they should be kept and maintained for emergency cases, but, in my judgment, it would be far better to give each soldier $1 a day and let him live at his home, in stead of giving him a small pension not sufficient to keep himself, and then, as a result, send him to a sol diers' home, but I would prefer seeing the appropriation for soldiers' homes cut down and the money thus saved appropriated for the purpose of in creasing the pension of the soldiers." been engaged to give lectures and ac quaint the farmers with inexpensive methods of improving the highways. In conducting the campaign, the company figures that with better fa cilities for reaching the freight sta tions, the farmers will do a greater business, which will mean additional benefit to the railroads. In planning the campaign the com pany has taken into consideration the fact that farmers are unable to deliver their crops and produce to the sta tions in bad weather owing to the im passable condition of the roads, and that they do not purchase goods which they would buy if the roads were such that the implements and other freight could be handled readily over the high ways. Taking the state of Pennsylvania as an example, the company estimat ed that the state contained about ninety-nine thousand miles of highway. I with about two thousand miles im proved. Owing to the expense at tached to the improvement of country roads the company cast about for a method of improvement at a minimum cost and selected the King split log j drag. This device, is made by the I farmers at practically no expense from I plans furnished by D. W. King, the ex pert engaged by the company. It is believed that with better country roads the business of the railroad will be more stable and will show an in crease in the winter months for the reason that the farmers will be able to go to and from the stations without the inconvenience experienced when the roads were full of chuck holes.
