SKIN-TORTURED
BABIES CURED
Humor Kept Tiny Girl’s Face Sore
for Months—Grew Worse in Spite
of Doctor's Prescription—Scream
ed when Salves were Applied-
Brother Suffered from Tetter.
CUTICURA’S ACTION
QUICK AND EFFECTIVE
“ I will explain about Kathryn Rishel's
cure. She is four years old now. When
she was two
months, she had
tetter or ecze
ma on her face.
It commenced
on her cheeks
and kept spread
ing till it was al
most all over her
Jface. I had a
doctor to treat it
but it still kept
getting worse. I
tried many kinds
of salve but it
only got worse.
and when I would grease her poor little
face she would scream. I had to put
the salve on and then start to walk till
she would quiet down. I worried along
in this way till she was over one year
old. Then I thought I would try Cuti
cura, as I had used it for myself and it
had helped me very much.
“I got Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment. As soon as I began to use
them I saw a difference. She did not
need to cry when I treated her face.
The Cuticura Remedies commenced
right away to make it better. I used
several boxes of Cuticura Ointment and
used Cuticura Soap all the time and her
face was healed. She is four years old
now and J do not see any sighs of the
sores. Cuticura certainly did cure her.
"Our little boy had tetter also. He
is nearly two. I used Cuticura Soap and
Ointment for him and be was soon cured.
I used them right away so he didn't get
as sore as Kathrvn did. Mrs. Blanche
Rishel, Clintondale, Pa.. Oct. 22, 1908.*'
For more than thiity years the Cuti
cura Remedies have been the favorites
in tens of thousands of households, for
the treatment of eczemas, rashes, itch
ings. irritations and other torturing, dis
figuring humors of the skin and scalp.

CHARGED WITH THEFT
OF TWO FINE MULES
A quick arrest was made by Detec- j
fives Stowe and Newnam yesterday
when Ramon de la Cruz, charged
with having stolen two mules from
Frank Walsh, a farmer on the Medina,
was apprehended near the Union Stock
yards, south of the city, after a chase
covering almost three miles. The mules
were recovered and Cruz is in the city
jail, while an affidavit filed against
him in Justice Fisk s court charges him
with theft.
An alleged attempt on the part of
Cruz to dispose of one of the mules to
Henry Pfefferling, a stockman on South
Flores street, resulted in his arrest. The
two animals were valued at $3OO.
Cruz, it is said, made his appearance at
the stock yards early yesterday and of
fered to sell one of the animals for $5O
to Mr. Pfefferling. The latter agreed to
make the purchase.
Cruz claimed that he had purchased
the mules from a Mr. Norton and when
Pfefferling announced that he was go
ing to telephone him, Cruz is said to
have hurriedly mounted the other mule
and ridden away. Headquarters was
notified and Detectives Newnam and
Stowe detailed on the case.
The long chase was then on and by
making inquiries the detectives, who
were in a buggy, managed to trail the
Mexican with the result that be was
finally overtaken in the southern por
tion of the city.

FRIDAY,
ms. MEET WHERE
MRTY WAS FORUED
Celebrate Fortieth Anniversary
of Founding of Party and
Plan for the Future.
Associated Press.
Chicago, Sept. 24.—The policy of the j
prohibition party in the national cam
paign of 1912, and possibly the presi-1
dential candidate, will be tentatively j
determined today by the scores of party j
leaders who are in Chicago to celebrate I
the 40th aniversary of the founding |
of the party at the hotel La Salle, which |
is built on the site of Farwell hall, in j
which the party was organized in 1864.
Notable members 'of the party, in
cluding former candidatee for the pres-1
idency and vice presidency, are in at-1
tendance and it is asserted the gather
ing will be tantamount to a national
convention in point o fattendance of
men who direct the affairs of the party.
It is said that a movement is on foot
to have adopted a rough draft of a 1912
platform which would deal with current
conditions politically, tariff and other
things as well as the basic principle of
abolishing the legalized liquor traffic, j
Among those here are John Russell,
aged 87. temporary chairman of the!
first convention and prohibition vice >
presidential candidate in 1872. who ar
rived from Boston yesterday, and John
P. St. John of Kansas, 76 years old,
who was presidential candidate in 1884.
PROFIT GIVE START
FOR BUILDING FUND
With the sum of $lOOO set aside as a
building fund for a starter, the San
Antonio Trades Council proposes to own
its own home and steps will be taken
in the near future with that object in
view. This project was made possible
by the returns from the recent Labor
Day celebration in this city, but as
yet nothing definite could be given out
as to what the new structure would ।
cost and when the building would be I
erected.
The final committee reports on thel
Labor Day celebration show that 2000
men were in the parade on September j
6. and that double that number partici-;
pated in the festivities at Electric Park l
on that day. The finance committee!
reported that the sum of $lOOO had been (
realized from the event.
Before the meeting adjourned, the
council voted the sum of $5O for the
Taft entertainment fund and purchased
membership in the San Antonio Cham- j
ber of Commerce.

School Supplies at Half
It is just as important to teach children the lesson of econ
omy as it is that thev should acquire the rudiments of education—
the “Three Rs.” Economy, after all, is the basic principle of
success—the real foundation on which to build fortunes. We
want to help to teach the children of San Antonio their first les
sons in economy —to let them see and learn the value of money
in making their purchases. And at the “After Supper” event
Saturday night we will open the “School of Economy”—which
will eventually, if the lessons are properly applied, matriculate
them to the “University of Success.”
Where the Sale Will Be Held
For convenience we will hold the first sale in the piece goods aisle—all
the big table counters in the rear will be spread with the bargains—some
will be half price, some less than half price and a saving of not less than a
fourth or a third will be the rule on others —everything will be sold at
CONVINCINGLY LOWERED PRICES... Bring the children and let them
make their selections—let them DO THE shopping.
