1802 Reynolds & 34th St., Savannah, r
Ga.-"My head began to get sore and
all around the edges got white with t
the ,isease until I was quite scared.
I thought all my hair would drop out. c
It came out by handfuls, and my head
itched so I nearly scratched the skin
off. It was full of dandruff which
showed plainly in my hair. I also
had trouble with my hand. It peeled I
every t"rae I put it in water, and it
was so badly disfigured that every- c
body noticed it and asked me what It P
was. It was red, and burned awfully.
"Mly mother tried several things but t
they were unsuccessful, and it seemed
as if nothing did it any good until I
started to use Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment. It had lasted about four weeks. t
but th.en it started getting well and
my hair stopped falling completely.
Now it is cured. My hair is now nice
and thick and is growing to a nice
length. I also used the Cuticura Soap
and Ointment for my hand and com
pletely cured it." (Signed) Miss
Hattie M. Jones, Nov. 8, 1911.

"Aw. that's Ezra Toombs, the under

Steedee tavern. "He's feeling sore
over the way his business has been
going of late. You see, the doctor
gave Judge Feebles two weeks to live;
that was six weeks ago, and the judge
is up and around now and figgerin' on

Backache is a symptom of organic

backache don't neglect it. To get per
manent relief you must reach the root
.f the trouble. Read about Mrs. Wood- r

two years with female disorders, my
health was very bad
and I hada continual
backache which was
simply awful. I could

without my back 1
nearly killing me,
and I would have

clothing, and was irregular. I was comn

is now more than two years and I have
not had an ache or pain since. I do all
