'7 suffered with eczema on my neck
for about six months, beginning by lit
tle pimples breaking out. I kept
scratching till the blood came. It kept
getting worse. I couldn’t sleep nights
any more. It kept itching for about a
month, then I went to a doctor BLd
pot some liquid to take. It seemed
us if I was ~oing to get better. The
itching stopped for about three days,
but when it started again, was even
worse thnn before. The eczema itched
so badly I couldn't stand It any more.
‘T went to a doctor and he gave mo
pome medicine, but didn’t do any goed.
We have been having Cuticura Rem
edies in the house, so I decided to try
them. I had been using Cuticura
Soap, ro I got mo a box of Cuticura
Ointment, and washed off the affected
part with Cuticura Soap throe* times a
day. and then put the Cuticura Oint
ment on. The first day I put it on, it
relieved me of itching so I could sleep
all that night. It took about a week,
then I could see the scab come off. I
kept the treatment up for three weeks,
and my eczema was cured.
"My brother got his face burned

other young, newly fledged oculists
and himself were chatting In their
quarters In the hospital when the ton

ent colors of eyes. Ono championed
the sujvrrlor brilliancy and sparkle of
the blue eye; another tho depth and
lire of the brown. while tho third was
all for the clear, cool light of the
hazel. After they had exhausted their
eloquence, with the usual effect of con
firming themselves in their orlgiual
opinions, the fourth young sawbones
