ECZEMA BROKE OUT ON BABY
"When my baby was two months
old, she had eczema and rash very
badly. I noticed that her fate and
body broke out very suddenly, thick,
and red as a coal of fire. I did not
know what to do. The doctor ordered
castile soap and powders, but they
did no good. She would scratch, aa
It Itched, and she cried, and did not
sleep for more than a week. One
day I saw in the paper the advertise
inent of the Cuticura Soap and Cuti
cura Ointment, so I got them and
tried them at once. My baby's face
w as as a cake of sores.
"When 1 first used the Cuticura
Soap and Cuticura Ointment, I could
see a difference. In color it was red
der. I continued with them. My
baby was in a terrible condition. 1
used the Cuticura Remedies (Soap
and Ointment) four times a day, and
in two weeks she was quite well. The
Cuticura Remedies healed her skin
perfectly, and her skin is now pretty
and fine through using them. 1 also
use the Cuticura Soap today, and will
continue to, for it makes a lovely

Cuticura Remedies. They are good
for all Bores, and the Cuticura Soap
is also good for shampooing the hair,

Dinner had waited that night while
everybody went to the coal cellar and
stared at the hole in the wall, and
watched while Max took a tracing of
It and of some footprints In the coal
dust on the other side.
I did not go. I went Into the library
with the guilty watch In a fold of
my gown, and found Mr. Harhison
there, staring through the February
gloom at the blank wall of the next
house, and quite unconscious of the
reporter with a drawing pad Just be

and closed the shutters before bis

There wasn't any reply to that, so
I took the watch and placed it on the

was all that I had hoped. He stared ,
at it for an Instant, then at me, with \

“Where did you And It?” he asked.
I couldn't understand his expression.
He looked embarrassed, but not at all

looking gloomily at nothing. Then
he got up and ambled Into hls den.

having spoken a word. It was more
than human nature could stand.

peering Into the transmitter and
knocking the recel\»*r against his

But. nothing happened. Flannlgan re
ported a box of breakfast food, two
lemons and a pineapple cheese, a
combination that didn't seem to lend
Itself to anything.
We went bark to the dining room !
from sheer force of habit and sat
around the table and looked at the

can fix It.”
Flannlgan was beside me with the
cheese. And at that moment. I felt
Mr. Harbison’s stolen watch slip out
of my girdle, slide greasily across my |
lap. and clatter to the floor. Klannl- '
gan stooped, but luckily It had gone
under the table. To have had it

I got it. to see them try to Ignore

impossible! I put. my foot over It.
"Drop something?” Dallas asked
perfunctorily, rising Flannlgan was
still half kneeling

could, and the conversation went. on.
But Flannlgan knew, and 1 knew he

I stood with my hand on the back of

menacing The silence was absolute:
1 was the guiltiest wretch alive, and
opposite me the law towered and
glowered and held the yellow remnant
of a pineapple cheese? And In th*' si
