" inS-líaC 1 trine expounded in G. 0. P. conventions.

DOCTOR SAID "USE CUTICURA" In Bad Case of Eczema on Child Disease Had Reached a Fearful State His Order Resulted in Complete Cure. "When I was small I was troubled with eczema for about three months. It was all over my face and covered nearly all of my head. It reached such a state that it was just a large scab all over, and the pain and itching were terrible. I doctored with an able physician for some time and was then advised by him to use the Ciiticura Remedies which I did and I was en tirely cured. I have not been bothered with it since. I used Ciiticura Soap and Ciiticura Ointment but do not know exactly how much was used to complete the cure. I can safely say that Ciiticura did a lot for me.
