IMPORTANCE OF THE COMMA.
Getting Punctuatien Mark in Wrang
Place May Causa Treuble.
"Some lawsuits of the highest lav
portance have hinged apon the right
placing of a comma," said Judge F. C.
Downing of St. Louis.
"When I first started to practice
(aw a Missouri edtor came to me in
a peck of trouble to defend him
against a threatened libel suit grow
ing out of faulty punctuation. Ha
had not meant to give some innocent
young woman the slightest offense
when he wrote a story about two
young men who want with their girls
to attend a lecture and after they left,
the girls got drunk.' Putting that mis
erable little comma out of its right
place did the work, as it made the
girls the ones who became inebriated
instead of their escorts. I managed
by proper diplomacy and the publica
tion of a neat apology to stave off
the damage suits, and afterward my
editorial friend became an expert on

SUFFERED TWENTY-FIVE YEARS.
With Eczema Her Limb Peeled and
Foot Was Raw Thought Amputa
tion Was Necessary Believes
Life Saved by Cuticura.
"I have been treated by doctors for
twenty-flve years for a bad case of
eczema on my leg. They did their best,
but failed to cure it. My doctor had
advised me to have my leg cut off. At
this time my leg was peeled from the
knee, my foot was like a piece of raw
flesh, and I had to walk on crutches
I bought a set of Cuticura Remedies
After the first two treatments the
swelling went down, and in twe
months my leg was cured and the new
skin came on. The doctor was sur
prised and said that he would use
Cuticura for his own patients. I have
now been cured over seven years, and
but for the Cuticura Remedies I
might have lost my life. Mrs. J. B.
