For the wedding breakfast the guests nro usually seated, though a buffet luncheon, if there are plenty of servants tc remove foiled dishes and change the viands, is In perfectly good taste, and lunch In vogue in Europe-, For a simple breakfast menu there Is usually one hot dish, such as or-'ame-.l lobster, salmon, chicken, sweetbreads or mushrooms, served In patties or paper cases; then a salad, sandwiches, punch and Ices, with coffee or chocolate to com plete the service. If even greater sim plicity Is desired, omit the warm dish and have everything cold, excepting the coffee.

CAME NEAR DYING From an Awful Skin Humour. Scratched Till Blood Ran. Waited to Skeleton. CURED BY CUTICURA One Application Soothed Him to Sleep. Cure Speedy and Permanent. 'When my little boy was thrco months old his head broke out with a rash, which was very itchy and ran considerable watery fluid. We tried everything we could, but he got wor3e 11 the time till it spread to his arms, legs, and then to his entire body, nnd he came near dying. It itched so he would scratch till the blood ran, and a thin yellowish stuff would be all over bis pillow in the morning. I had to put tnittens on his hands to keep him from tearing his skin. He got so weak he took fainting spells and we would think him dying. He was almost a skeleton and his little hands were thin like claws. "He was bad about eight months when we tried Cuticura. I had not laid him down in his cradle in the daytime for a long time. He had got so that he Just slept in our arms all the time. INSTANT RELIEF "I washed him with Cuticura Soap and put on one application of Cuti cura Ointment and he was so soothed that I put him in the cradle. Vou don't know how glad I felt when he felt bet ter. It took one bos of Cuticura Oint ment, pretty near one cake of Cuticura Soap, and about half a bottle of Cuti cura Resolvent, to cure. I think he would have died only for the Cuticura." Mrs. M. C. MAITLAND, Jasper, Ont.
