Eczema Came on Legs and Ankles— Could Not Wear Shoes Because - . I have been successfully cured of •dry eczema. I was inspecting the re moval of noxious weeds from the edge of a river and was constantly in the dust from the weeds. At night I cleansed my limbs but felt a prickly sensation. I paid no attention to it for two years but I noticed a scum on my legs like fish scales, I did not I a attend to It until it came to be too Itchy and sore and began getting two | running sores. My ankles were all Of Bad Scaling and Itching. sore and scabby and I could not wear of *hoes. I had to use carpet and felt er slippers for weeks. I got a cake of the Cuticura Soap and some Cuticura at Ointment. In less than ten days I could put on my boots and in less than three weeks I was free from the con founded itching. Capt. George P.

"I've been doing it for years. You know there are some very odd things written on bank notes sometimes." He ppinted to a one-dollar bill hung in a frame of black oak on the wall. "Read that," he said. "And I've got queer er ones than that even in my col iection." On the bank note in red Ink was written in a feminine hand: "You have robbed me of all the rest, and of ray soul also. May this burn your hand when you touch it. May all you buy with it be accursed. You have the last. Are you now satisfied? Murderer!" The collector sighed sentimentally. "Think of the tragedy," he said, "that may lie hid behind those single lit tle phrases, eh?"

ADAMS. (Member of American Geographical So ciety.) (Copyright, 1909, by New York Times.) New York.—(Special.)—The fore going dispatch, though conden sed, tells clearly the leading 'facts in the story, not only of Peary's Jour Mrs. Robert E. Peary. ney to the north pole, but also of a remarkably fast sledge trip over the Ice of the open polar sea. The dispatch says that the Roose velt passed the winter of 1908-1909 at Cape Sheridan, on the coast of Grant Land. The vessel had threaded the comparatively narrow channels, sev eral hundreds of miles in length, lead ing from Cape Sabine to the Arctic ocean. This journey is apt to be difficult an£ sometimes impossible, but the conditions were evidently favorable. The ship that disappeared in the fog while the crew of Peary's auxiliary steamer Erik were watching Its de parture from Etah made a good pas sage through tho long channels, and arrived safely on the shores of the sea, where the explorer was to start on his sledges for the north pole. But at Chpe Sheridan Peary was not as far west as he probably had hoped to be. He had announced his Inten tion, In the previous year, of making his sledge route to the pole along some meridian much further to the west of his route in 1906, when he made the highest north attained up to that time—87 d. 6 m. On that occasion he was greatly im peded by the rapid drift Of the ice to the east which a little retarded his progress north, and worse still, car ried him so far to the east that he had to make his landing on the coast of North Greenland, many days' march from the Roosevelt, his base of sup plies. On his expedition of 1905-06 he tried hard to force the Roosevelt a good dls« tance to the west of Cape Sheridan, but the ice baffled him. For one roa* son or another on the edge of the arc tic winter last year he did not or could not take his vessel along the northern coast of Grant Land to the west of Cape Sheridan, and so It spent last winter not so far from Its old berth in the ice in the winter of 1905-6. The sledge expeditipn left the Roose velt on February 15, while It still practicaly dark in that latitude. The sun scarcely begins to peer above the hills for a few minutes a day, even several hundred miles to the south of the coast where the Roose velt was wintering. It comes Into view a little later in that more north ern latitude and the party made slow time to the west as it felt its along. The northern Grant Land coast is likely to be exceedingly difficult to traverse, especially in the early spring on account of the masses of sea ice that have been pressed on the shore or broken into great blocks and stranded along the sea edge. It is no wonder that it took the par ty 15 days to travel westward as far as Cape Columbia. It is likely, how. ever, that Commander Peary succeed ed, before winter set in, in cachelng supplies to the westward so as to ac celerate a little the westward ment of the sledge party before it struck out northward over the Arriving at Cape Columbia March 15 the sledges turned to the north on the sea ice. The explorer had laid much stress upon the fact that he intended to travel much further to the west than on his trip in 1906. His dis patch shows, however, that he did not take to the sea any farther to the west than he did on his earlier trip. Commander Peary says nothing in his report of being detained by pres sure ridges or hummocks, and it is certain that he met with no impedi ment of this sort such as made his at tempt to reach the pole in 1902 a con tinuous and terrible strugggle. A great obstacle and the one that undoubtedly prevented him from reaching the pole in 1906 was the wide water lanes or leads of water, of them so long that he could not get around them. Peary's summary seems to show that he was a little over thirty-five days on the journey from the land to the north pole. In this time he was delayed about fourteen days by water leads, leaving a little more than three weeks for the actual sledging work. up 11; 15; 6. of was way a in to 40 move sea. on ing the ice of was of the Hill E. some PEARY'S 28-YEAR REC ORD OF ARCTIC EX PLORATION. her from and 1831—Entered navy as civil engineer and began extensive study of aro tic exploration. 1886—Applied for leave of absence to visit Greenland.
