Bishop William II McVickar of the
Episcopal diocese of Rhode Island, has
hundreds of Boston friends who will
be interested In a story they are tell-
ing down in Providence about him.
The bishop is as big physically as he
is mentally On a certain occasion
some years ago, he preached a sermon ,
I on the need for missionary work in
the back towns of his state, and espe-
cially mentioned the town of Foster,
which certainly deserved as much as
he said about it.
There are a good many fighters in 1
Foster, and the worst of the lot an-
nounced to all who cared to,hear that
when he went to Providence he
would make it his business to chas-
tise the bishop, lit- didn't happen to
visit the,city until a month or po ago.
On his return he joined the crowd
about the stove in the village post- (
office.
"Well, Hi," said one of the gray
beards. Did ye lick this here Pi r
son McVicKar when ye was down to
Provident« "
Hi spat deliberately before he re-
plied "I.ick him!" he said "Say,
he's eight foot tall 'and four foot
broad. Lick him? 1 'saw' him."—Bos j

Quits Job to Protect Mother
Guthrie, Okla Bruce Williams has
resigned his position with the Santa
Fe railroad in order that he may re-
main at home to protect his mother
from the assaults of unknown persons
which have occurred recently and
which are being inv< stigated by Sheriff
Mahoney. The home has been stoned
and revolvers fired near it for a period
of two weeks. All efforts to ascertain
the identity of the culprits have been
unavailing.
Drinks Carbolic Acid and Dies
El Reno, Okla.—A cloak of mystery
surrounds the cause for the suicide of
former Sheriff John Ozmun of Cana-
dian county, in his automobile garage
here. Saturday evening Ozmun enter-
ed the garage and lifted a phial of car-
bolic acid to his lips. His son saw the
attempt that his father was making I made by the latter i
and attempted to knock the bottle
from his hands, but failed. Ozmun
lived for half an hour after drinking
the fatal drug, and his last failing
strength was spent in opposing the
ffforts thar were made to save him
from death.

RAW ECZEMA ON HANDS
"I had eczfmn on my hands for ten
years. I had threo Rood doctors but
none of them did any good I then
used one box of Cuticura Ointment
ind three bottles of Cuticura Resolvent
end was completely cured. My hands
were raw :ill over, inside and out. and
the eczema was spreading all over my
body and limbs. Before I had used one
bottle, together with the Cuticura
Ointment, my fores wi re Ti. arly
healed over, and by the lime I had
used the third bottle, 1 was entirely
well. To any one who has any skin
or blood disease I would honestly ad-
vise them to fool with nothing else,
but get Cuticura end get well. My
hands have never given me the least
bit of trouble up to now.
"My daughter's hands this summer
became perfectly raw with eczema.
She could get nothing that would do
them any good until she tried Cuti-
cura. She used Cuticura Resolvent
and Cuticura Ointment and In two
weeks they were entirely cured. I
have used Cuticura for other members
of my family and it always proved suc-
cessful. Mrs. M. K Falin, Speer3
