The eruption first looked HkeA little water blisters, then it turned so it looked like a piece of raw meat. It itched so O badly that we had to muffle the baby's hands to protect it spreading all over her face. It certainly disfigured her terribly and she could not rest at night. Her clothing was very Irritating to the body and when it was removed her body was raw. We had her treated for about two months when it spread all over her body, face and head and seemed ,to grow worse all the time. y V I took good warm water and Cuticura Soap and lathered it all over her and allowed It to dry on and then when it was thoroughly dry I applied the Cuticura Ointment.' In ' About a week I could see a big change and In three weeks you never would have known she ever had eczema and she never has been troubled since." (Signed) Mrs. George Coe, Hot. 20, 1912.

DIRECTORS DID NOT DIRECT Skinner Only New Haven Director Not Afraid of Morgan J. S. ELTON TELLS COM- : MERCE COMMISSION Tells. How He and Others Were Handled by Moiv . gan and Mellen DECLARES WOMEN TRAVEL TOO FAST Owen Soon Johnson Thinks They'll Throw Off All the Conventions. Chicago, June 4. Women of to-day are traveling the pace bo fast that they are becoming agnostic, and the church pews of the next generation will be filled entirely by men, according to Owen Johnson, who is visiting in Chi cago, He also declares that woman's yearning for exeitament is causing ber to revolt socially, industrially and mor ally, and that she is destined to throw all conventions to the winds ere long. "Men have long since slipped out from under the influence of the church." Mr. Johnson said. "Tbe women are now as suming the same attitude. They are becoming agnostic. They have ceased to stand in awe and fear of the church. "The trouble is that women are going too fast. The men are going to stop the women if they are stopped. We men are going to seo that it will be necessary for us to get back under the mantle of religious faith. We are going to see the need of setting an example for our wives and daughters. I predict that the next generation will see the men closer to the church than they are now, and that the women will be just that much fur ther away." Washington, June 4. "I didn't know anything about railroading and when such men as Mr. Mellen and Mr. Morgan said a thing was all right, I voted for it. I was not a railroad man." So said James S. Elton, a director of, the New Haven railroad, to the interstate com merce commission yesterday at the conclusion of a long series of questions about expenditures by the directors for the acquisition of other roads. "I told my son the other day," testified Mr. El ton, "that I have lived to be almost seventy-six years old only to find out that I belonged to the fool family." This pungent summary of the way the New Haven road was run under the presidency of Charles S. Mellen and the domination of J. Pierpont Morgan was the striking contribution of Mr. Elton to the -story of the svstem now being writ ten into popular history under the guid ing hand of Chief Counsel Folk. Another chapter contributed and equaUy strik ing, was Mr. Elton's tribute to the pres ent management. Mr. Elton said he was present at the meeting at which Messrs Morgan, Rocke feller and Miller were appointed a com mittee in the New York, Westchester A Boston transaction, and also when they reported. . "What was your opinion or their ad vocating spending over $11,000,000 for the road!" asked Mr. Folk. "I would not sav that I felt it Avaa unnecessary, but that it was extrava gance." "Were you surprised!" "I think I was, but I had absolute confidence in Messrs, Morgan, Rocke feller and Miller." Mr. Elton said he thought Mr. Mellen was the dominating figure at the board meetings, but he also thought the board usually ac quiesced in the recommendations made by .1. Pierpont Morgan. He remem bered no definite instance where the wishes of Mr. Morgan were opposed though there might be individual objec tions after Morgan left the meetings. Asked why he was afraid to make obiections at meetings, he said: "It was natural timidity, I supose. You see, I did not pretend to be a rail road man and when Mr. Morgan or Mr. Mellen said to do a thing, 1 had confi dence in them." Jn his opinion the price Prescribed by doctors fort ha past 19 yc-rs Resinol will stop that itch THE moment that Resinol Ointment touches itching skin, the itching stops and ' healing begins.

Aided by warm baths with Resinol Soap, Resinol Ointment restores the skin or scalp to perfect health and comfort, quickly, easily and at little cost. Sold by all druggists. TARIFF ABOVE THE MARK Will Exceed Estimate for ' the Year by $20,-000,000 RECEIPTS BELOW PREVIOUS YEAR mud for the New York, Westchester A Boston railroad was too high. "Were the other directors as timid as you? asked Commissioner MeChord. '"No," said Mr. Elton, and added that William Skinner at times expressed dis approval in the presence of. Mr. Morgan, "Did any of the directors at the meeting ever ask if any of the trans actions connected with the acquisition or consolidation of troliey concerns were in violation of the Sherman anti-trust law?" "Yes, I did some times." "What answer did you get?" "1 was told that the New Haven's charter from the state of Connecticut allowed it to do almost anything." "Who said that?-' "Counsel of the company, E. I). Fob bins." Mr. Elton snid his etTorts to get infor mation about New Haven subsidiaries met with little success. Questioned as to the affairs of the Billard company, Mr. Elton said he un derstood that the New Haven was to have the profits from its transactions, aside from leasonable compensation to Mr. liillard. Mr. Elton did not think the New Haven wa an adjunct of Wall street, hut that Mr. Morgan's heart and soul v.as in it. In his opinion, Mr. Mellen's ambition ran away with him. Mr. Elton testified that the acquisi tion of the Westchester and the several trolley properties was in consonance with a broad policy which had for its end the improvement of terminal facili ties in New York City and a "comprehen sive increase of the transportation fa cilities of the system. These points were developed on questions by William Nelson Cromwell, representing several of the diretcors. William Skinner, another director, tcs tified at the afternoon session. He said if the things had been allowed to go on, and the New Haven had not been sub jected to inimical inquiries the property would have nulled through. He asserted that Mellen could have retained the pres idencv if he desired. Skinner said while he differed with .T. 1. Morgan at the meetings, he felt Morgan pretty nearly almighty In fi nance matters. Skinner will continue to-day.

Cummins Proposes Action Because of Re cent Supreme Court Decision. Senator Cummins proposal that the Carmark amendment to the interstate commerce law be rewritten so as to hold railroads liable generally for loss to ship ments during transit was before the Senate yesterday. In explanation of his bill. Senator Cummins told the Senate that the supreme court had held recent ly that the Carmaek amendment mak ing initial railroad carriers liable for loss of shipments, had annulled all state laws on liabilityfor damage to inter state shipments. As a result the railroads had proceeded to limit liability to the value stated in the bill of lad ing. He asked for the passage of a law requiring railroads to pay the actual loss suffered by shippers except where the shipments were wrapped or the inter state commerce commission had granted permission lor the making of ruUs on value. lliMMmMl mttiMuimnmil j;MMHii(!!tin!!MitH'MM!!!i;! rUmiJIIUMJMI IIIIMHHH tMtiHiinir HiniiiiMMiMiiininf.
