had little hope of recovery, and when I began
to feel better, after the second week, thought
It only meant temporary relief; but to my
great surprise I found that I kept gaining,
while the tumor lessened in size.
" The Compound continued to build up my
general health and the tumor seemed to be
absorbed, until, in seven months, the tumor
was entirely gone and I a well woman. 1 am
so thankful for my recovery that I ask you

Story of a Murder.
Yesterday a numbe r of wild rumors
were circulated over the city to the
effect that a skeleton had been found is
the cellar of a saloon on the cast side,
and the murder theory was quickly ad
vanced by those who peddled the story
from house to house and from doorstep
to doorstep. An investigation of the
wild rumor disclosed the skeleton, but
its history was very readily explained.
For some time until recently Tom Bol
ton conducted a saloon at Second and
Iowa streets. One of his bartenders
was Billy Allars. Billy formerly con
ducted a saloon and museum of Ids own
in Hock Island, and when he came to
Tom Bolton's place, he brought with
him the skeleton in question, the bones
of which were wired in their respect
ive places. Recently the saloon was
purchased by a party by the name of
Pamperin, and upon taking possession
one of the first acts done by the new
owner was to throw the skeleton out
into the rear yard adjoining the alley.
Here it was discovered by some rag
pickers, and the children of the neigh
borhood and the discovery" rf the bones
started the rumor that a terrible mur
der had been committed years ago on
the east side.
Jimmy Wilson, cook at the Davenport
restaurant on East Third street, was

Wanted to Mcb Foreman.
Because J. C. Pratt, foreman of a
section gang at Natick, couldn't see
that the Italian gang war, entitled tc
transportation to Chicago free o.
charge, the Italians advocated an idea
that capital punishment might be good
for him. An assault was made upon
him but he got away and sent for the
police. Two Italians, Joe Scow and
Mike Deneas, appeared before Magis
trate Olson charged with assault.
They explained things as they saw
them. According to their stories they
had paid $3 in Chicago for the privi
lege of being permitted to work for
the Rock Island road at this point.
Then they had paid other minor fees.
They were to get free transportation
to Chicago whenever they were dis
charged. They were discharged Wed
nesday night. On claiming their pass
es to the Windy City they were met
coldly. They soon warmed things up.
The case was finally dismissed on pay
ment of the costs by the Italians.
A caboose standing at Natick yards
caught fire Wednesday night and was
partially consumed. The Central tire
department made a dash for the scene
and the run was made in comparative
ly short time. The fire lighted the
east end and for a time it looked as if
it was a serious one.

HO TONGUE CAN
From Itching and Bleeding Eczema
Pain Terrible Body and Face
Covered with Sores Doctors
and Medicines Failed.
CURE BY CUTICURA
" No tongue can tell how I suffered
for five years with itchiug and bleed
ing eczema, until I was cured by the
Cuticura Remedies, and I am so grate
ful 1 want the world to know, for what
helped me will help others. My body
and face were covered with sores.
One day it would sccia to be better,
and then break out agnin with the
most terrible pain and itching. I have
been sick several times, but never in
my life did I experience such awful
suffering as with this eczema. I had
made up my mind that death was near
at hand, and I longed for that time
when I would be at rest. ' I had tried
many different doctors and medicines
without success, and my mother
brought me the Cuticura Remedies,
insisting that I try them. I began to
feel better after the first bath with
Cuticura Soap, and one application of
Cuticura Ointment. 1 continued w ith
the Soap and Ointment, and lmvs
taken four bottles of Cuticur.i Resolv
ent, and consider myself well. Any
person having any doubt about this
wonderful cure by the Cuticura Rem
edies can write to my address.

The agonizing itching and burning
of the skin, as in eczema; the fright
