BEAUTY AND PURITY
Ancient and Modern Ideas on the Subject a
Time and Disease the Effacing Agents
of Beauty. What Has Science Done
to Restore the Lily and the Rose?
^Socrates called beauty a short-lived
•tyranny, Plato a privilege of nature,
Theocritus a delightful prejudice,
Theophrastus a silent cheat, Carneades
a solitary kingdom, flomer a glorious
gift of nature, Ovid a fav9r of the
gods. Aristotle affirmed that beaaty
was better than ail the letters of recom
mendation in the world, and yet none
of these distinguished authorities has
left us even a hint of how beauty is to
be perpetuated, or the ravages of age
snd disease defied. Time soon blends
the illy and the rose into the pallor of
age, disease dots the fair face with
cutaneous disfigurations and crimsons
the Soman oose with unsightly flushes,
moth, if not rast, corrupts the glory
of eyes, teeth, and lips yetbeautiful by
defacing the complexion, and Alls the
sensitive soul with agony unspeakable.
If such be the unhappy condition of
one afflicted with slight skin blemishes,
what most be the feelings of those in
whom torturing humors have for
years ram riot, covering the skin with
scales and sores and charging the
blood with poisonous elements to
become a part of the system until
death? It Is vain to attempt to por
tray such suffering. Death in many
cases might be considered a blessing.
The blood and fluids seem to be im
pregnated with a fiery ^element which,
when discharged through the pores
upon the surface of the body, inflames
and burns until, in his efforts for relief,
the patient tears the skin with his
nails, and not until the blood flows
does sufficient relief come to cause liim
Thus do complexloB8l defects merge
disease, and piqued van
ity give place to real suffering. A
little wart on the nose or cheek grows
to tlfe all-devouring lupus, a patch of
tetter on the palm of the hand or on
the limbs suddenly envelops the body
in its fiery embrace, atomise on the leg
expands into a gnawing ulcer, which
reaches out its fang& to the sufferer's
heart io every paroxysm of pain, a
small kernel la the neck multiplies into'
a dozen, which eat away the vitality,
great pearl-like scales crow from little
rash-like Inflammations la such abun
dance as to pass credulity and so on
may w« depict the sufferings to which
poor haman nature is subject, all of
which involve great mental distress
because of personal disfigurations.
If there were not another external
disease known, eczema alone would be
a sufficient Infliction on -mankind. It
pervades all classes, and descends im
partially through, generations. While
some are constantly enveloped in it,
others have it confined to small
patches in the ears, on the scalp, on
the breast, on the palms of tho hands,
on the limbs, etc., but everywhere its
distinctive feature is a small watery
blister, which discharges an acrid
fluig* causing b^at, inflammation, and
Intense itching. Ring-worm, tetter,
scalled head, dandruff, belong to this
scaly and itching order of diseases.
Psoriasis, our modern leprosy, with
Its motherrof-pearl scale, situated on
a reddened base, which bleeds upon
the removal of the scale, is to be
dreaded aud avoided, as of old. Im
petigo', barber's itch, erysipelas, and a
score of minor disorders make up ih'
part the catalogue of external diseases
of the sklu. 'fhus far wc have made
110 allnsion to those afflictions which
are manifestly impurities of the blood,
Viz.: swelling of tli$ glands of the
throat, ulcers qp the neck and limbs,
tumors, abscesses,, and mercurial
poisons, with loss of hair, because
the whole list can be comprehended in
tho one word scrofula.
It is in the treatment of torturing,
disfiguring humors and affections of
the skin, sealp. and blood, with loss of
hair, that the Cuticora remedies have
achieved their greatest success. Orig
inal in composition, scientifically com
pounded, absolutely pure, unchangeable
in any climate, always ready, and agree
able to the most delicate and sensitive,
they present to young and old the most
successful curatives of modern times.
This will be considered strong language
by those acquainted with the character
and obstinacy of blood and skiu humors
but it is justified by innumerable'suc
cesses where all the remedies and meth
ods in vogue have failed to cure, and,
In many cases, to relieve, even.
The Cuticura treatment is at once
agreeable, speedy, economical, and
comprehensive. Bathe the affected
parts freely with hot water and Cuti
cura soap, to cleanse the surface of
crusts and scales, and soften the
thickened cuticle. Dry, without hard
cubbing, and apply Cuticura Ointment

to allay itching, Irritation, and inflam
mation, and soothe and heal, and, lastly,
take Cuticura Resolvent, to cool and
cleanse the blood. This treatment af
fords instant relief, permits rest and
sleep in the severest forms of eczema
and other itching, burning, and scaly
humors, and points to a speedy, perma
nent, and economical cure of torturing,
disfiguring humors, eczemas, rashes,
and Inflammations, from infancy to
age, when all other remedies and the.
best physicians fail The remedies con
stituting the Cuticura system will repay
an individual scrutiny of their remark
Cuticura Soap contains in a modified
form the medicinal properties of Cuti
cura Ointment the great skin cure and
purest and sweetest of emollients, com
bined with the most delieate and re
freshing of flower odors. It purifies
and invigorates the poreA of the skin,
and imparts activity to the oil glands
and tubes, thus furnishing an outlet
for unwholesome matter, which If re
tained would' cause pimples, black
heads, rashes, oily, mothy skin, and
other complextonal disfigurations, as
well as scalp affections and irritations,
falling hair, and baby rashes. Its gen
tle and continuous action on the natural
lubricators of the skin keeps the latter
transparent, soft, flexible, and healthy.
Hence Its constant use, assisted by an
occasional use of Cuticura Ointment,
realizes the fairest complexion, tho
softest, whitest hands, and the most
luxuriant, glossy hair within the do
main of the. most advanced scientific
knowledge to supply.
Cuticura Ointment is the most suc
cessful external cnratlve for tortnring,
disfiguring humors of the skin and
scalp, including loss of hair, in proof
of which a single anointing with it,
preceded by a hot bath with Cuticura
Soap, and followed in the severer cases
by a full dose of Cuticura Resolvent, is
sufficient to afford immediate relief in
the most distressing forms of itching
burning, and scaly humors, permit rest
and sleep, and point to a speedy cure
other remedies fail. It is espe
cially so in the treatment of infants
and children, cleaning, soothing, and
healing the most distressing of infan
tile humors, and preserving, purifying,
and beautifying the 6kin, scalp, and
Cuticura Ointment possesses, at the
same time, the charm of satisfying
the simple wants of the toilet of all
ages, in carit for the skin, scalp,
hair, and hands far more effectually,
agreeably, aud economically than the
most expensive of toilet emollients,
while free from every ingredient of a
doubtful or dangerous character. Its
One Night Treatment of the Hands,"
or Single Treatment of the Hair,*' or
use after athletics, cycling, golf, ten
nis, riding, sparring, or auy sport, each
in connection with the use of Cuticura
Soap, is. sufficient evidence Of this.
Of all remedies for the purification
of the blood and circulating fluids, none
approaches in specific medical action
Cuticura Kesolvent. It neutralizes and
resolves away (hence its name) scrofu
lous, inherited and other humors in
the blood, which give rise to swellings
of the glands, pains in the bones, and
torturing, disfiguring eruptions of the
skin and scalp, with loss of fealr.
Cuticura Resolvent extends its puri
fying influence by means of the pores
to the surface of the skin, allaying
irritation, inflammation, itching, and
burning, and soothing and healing.
Hence its success in the treatment of
distressing humors of the skin, scalp,
and blood, with loss of hair, which fail
to be permanently cured by external
The grandest testimonial that' can
be offered Cuticura remedies is their
world-wide sale, due to the personal
recommendations of those who have
used them. It is difficult to realize the
mighty growth of the business done
under this name. From a small begin
ning in the simplest form, against prej
udice and opposition, against monled
hosts, countless rivals, and trade in
difference, Cuticura remedies have be
come the greatest curatives of their
time, and, in fact, of all time, for no
whero in tho history of medicine Is
to be found another approaching them

and with every people they have met

To the test of popular judgment all

verdict in favor of Cuticura.

associated with Clarke1-in the pur
chase two or three years ago of 434,
000 acres of land in the region of Bis

its lan»l and plans to sell the rest, but
it will retain about 20,000 acres near
New Salem for coal lands.
The question for the intercollegiate

Ward county always manages to
get to the front. In addition to the
thousands of new settlers, the great
flax belt and the premier coal regioh:
of the state, reports have been sent
out of gold discoveries in the hills of
that county. A man named Thorn
who has had California and Alaska
experience as a gold miner, declares
he has discovered auriferous ore
along a small lake about seventeen
miles southwest of Bowbells. He
thinks the hills near the lake are full:
of ore and has planned an investiga-t
tion in the spring. That section is
unhomesteaded because of the rough
nature of the country and if gold is
found there mining claims will be
taken under the mineral law.
Settled and Married.
J. K. Salisbury and Ellen J. Nichols

three weeks ago.
Mrs. Salisbury No. 1 applied for a
divorce some time ago and the de

by the payment of the full amount of
the claim by Mrs. Nichols.
The marriage has caused a sensa

Catarrh, Coughs, Colds and Grip.
A letter recently received by Dr. Hartman from Sister Beatrix, J10 W 80th
street, New York, reads as follows
Interesting Letters from
Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio:
Dear Sir:—" I cannot say too much in praise of Peruna. Eight bottles
of it cured me of catarrh of the lungs of four years standing, and I would
not have been without it for anything. It helped several Sisters of coughs,
and colds and I have yet to find one case of catarrh that it does not cure."
In every country of the civilized
world the Sisters of Charity are known.
Not only do they minis

intellectual needs of the
charges committed to
their care, but they also
minister to their bodily
