"BOBBY" WAS SO NERVOUS. He Wae Not to Be Agitated, Even by “Percy, Dear.” It was moving day for the summer colony along the North shore of Mas sachusetts. On the morning train from Rockport, hearing many well , known Bostonians to their town houses for the winter, rode a stormy old gentleman from the west. At Pride's crossing a family of three— father, mother and daughter—boarded the train, bearing respectively the family treasures: One pet poodle, one gray cat in a blue blanket, and one traveling clock in a much worn leath er case. The party had no sooner found seats across from the western er, than it became apparent that the excitement of boarding the train had caused a commotion among the pets. The cat was chided for talking aloud. “Calm yourself, Bobby," said his mis tress. "Be yourself once more—we are now on our way home.” Where upon Bobby grew calm. The poodle became restless in the company of his master on a seat in front and signified his yearning for Bobby’s company by climbing up the back of the seat and casting goo-goo eyes at the Tabby. The sympathetic mistress understood at once and said: “You may come over here and sit with us, Percy, dear, on one condition —you must not agitate Bobby.” This was too much for the stormy westerner. With a loud snort he reared up, paw-ed his hand-bag from the rack above his head, and pranced Into a coach ahead. IN AGONY WITH ECZEMA. Whole Body a Mass of Raw, Bleeding, Torturing Humor — Hoped Death Would Ena Fearful Suffering. In Despair; Cured by Cuticura. “Words cannot describe the terrible eczema I suffered with. It broke out on my head and kept spreading until it covered my whole body. I was almost a solid mass of sores from head to foot. I looked more like a piece of raw beef than a human be ing. The pain and agony endured seemed more than I could bear. Blood ami pus oozed from the great sore on my scalp, from under my finger nails, and nearly all over my body. My ears were so crusted and swollen I was afraid they would break off. Every hair in my head fell out. I could not sit down, for my clothes would stick to the raw and bleeding flesh, making me cry out from the pain. My family doctor did all be could, but I got worse and worse. My condition was awful. I did not think I could live, and wanted death to come and end my frightful sufferings. “In this condition my mother-in-law begged me to try the Cuticura Rem edies. I said I w ould, but had no hope of recovery. But oh, what blessed re lief I experienced after applying Cuti cura Ointment. It cooled the bleeding and itching flesh and brought me the first real sleep I had had in weeks. It was as grateful as ice to a burning tongue. I would bathe with warm water and Caticura Soap, then apply the Ointment freely. I also took Cuti cura Resolvent for the blood. In a short time the sores stopped running, the flesh began to heal, and I knew I was to get well again. Then the hair on my head began to grow, and in a short time I was completely cured. I wish I could tell everybody who has eczema to use Cuticura. Mrs. Wm. Hunt, 135 Thomas St., Newark, N. J., Sept. 28, 190S.” Potter Drug & Chois. Corp., Sole Props., Boston. One Spider’s Doings.

HEADING OFF THE CALLER. Plan for Getting Rid of Life Incur ance Agents Not Patented. The bell rang three times, and the man at the desk hastily reached for a flannel bandage. This he put round his neck. Then he arranged a sling, in which he put one arm. disarranged his hair, drew down the corners of his mouth, got out of his chair, and pain fully limped toward the door. “Mr. Jones?” inquired the well dressed caller, who opened it at that moment. The man with the bandage half suppressed a groan. “Yes, that’s my name. What can I do for you?’’ “You appear to be suffering," said j the intelligent caller. "Suffering!” returned the other. “Do | you think I’m doing this for fun? But ; what is your business, sir?” “Er—pardon me," stammered the caller, "I think I’ll drop in some other | time—eh?" "It's some trouble,” soliloquized the ! man with the bandage, as he removed the paraphernalia and returned to his desk. “But it is really the quickest way to get rid of these life insurance agents.
