IT IS A MISTAKE
Many have the idea that anything
will sell if advertised strong enough.
This is a great mistake. True, a
few sales might be made by advertis-
ing an absolutely worthless article
but it is only the article that la
bought again and again that pays.
An example of the big success of a
worthy article Is the enormous sal®
that has grown up for Cascarets
Candy Cathartic. This wonderful rec-
ord Is the result of great merit suc-
cessfully made known through per-
sistent advertising and the mouth-to-
mouth recommendation given Cas-
carets by its friends and users.
Like all great successes, trade pi-
rates prey on the unsuspecting pub-
lic, by marketing fake tablets Bimilar
in appearance to Cascarets Care
should always be exercised in pur-
chasing well advertised goods, espe-
cially an article that has a national
sale like Cascarets. Do njt allow a
substitute to be palmed ofT on you.

Fame and Fate.
Fame came to the man.
"I will have a five-cent cigar named
for you," she said sweetly.
Fate followed on her heels.
"I will make you smoke the cigar!"

It was declared that the attitude of

NURSE TELLS OF SKIN CURES
"I have seen the Cuticura Remedies
used with best results during the past
twenty years. In my work as a nurse,
many skin disease cases came under
my observation, and in every in-
stance, I always recommended the
Cuticura Remedies as they always
gave entire satisfaction. One case in
particular was that of a lady friend
of mine who, when a child, was af-
flicted with eczema which covered her
face and hands entirely, breaking out
at intervals with severer torture. She
could not go to school as the disfigure-
ment looked terrible. I told her to get
at once a set of Cuticura Remedies.
After the use of only one set she was
"A grown lady friend was afflicted
with salt rheum in one of her thumbs,
and she was cured by the Cuticura
Remedies. Still another lady had dry
salt rheum in both palms of her hands
every fall of the year. They used to
be so painful she could scarcely wet
her hands until she began to use the
Cuticura Remedies which cured her.
1 have also seen them cure children
of ringworm. The children's faces
would be all circles and rings around
the cheeks, and the neck ,and after
treatment with the Cuticura Soap and
Ointment they were completely cured.
My husband had rheumatism on his
arm and I used the Cuticura Oint-
ment. It made his arm as limber and
nice, whereas it was quite stiff before
I began to apply the Ointment.
"Last May I had an ingrowing toe
nail which was very painful, as the
side of the nail was edging right
down in the side of my toe. I cut
the nail out of the cavity It made, and
of course applied the Cuticura Oint-
ment to the part affected. It soothed
It and in less than ten nights it was
all healed through constant use of the
Ointment. Ten days ago I had my
