TWO CURES OF ECZEMA
Baby Had Severe Attack—Grandfather
Suffered Torments with It—
Owe Recovery to Cuticura.
“In 1884 my grandson, a babe, had
an attack of eczema, and utter trying
the doctors to the extent of heavy bills
and an Increase of the dlHcase and suf-
fering. 1 recommended Cuticura and
in a few weeks the child was well. He
is to-day a strong man and absolutely
free from the disease. A few’ years
ago l contracted eczema, and became
an intense sufferer. A whole winter
passed without once having on shoes,
nearly from the knees to the toes be-
ing covered with virulent sores. 1 tried
many doctors to no purpose. Then I
procured the Cuticura Remedies and
found immediate improvement and
final cure. M.W.LaRue, 845 Seventh St.,

He spoke his love in German—she
answered not a word.. In French he
tried to woo her—the maiden never
heard. He tried his luck in English,
in Irish—all in vain; in Greek, Turkish
and Latin, and in the tongue of Spain.
And then an inspiration came to the
anguished youth. “The universal
language,” he cried, “I'll try, for-
sooth!” He kissed the demure maiden
and pressed her to his breast; she
understood that language, and—well,
you know the rest.

Sheer white goods. In fact, any fine
wash goods when new, owe much of
their attractiveness to the way they
are laundered, this being done in a
manner to enhance their textile beau-
ty. Home laundering would be equal-
ly satisfactory If proper attention was
given to starching, the first essential
being good Starch, which has sufficient
strength to stiffen, without thickening
the goods. Try Defiance Starch and
you will be pleasantly surprised at the
Improved appearance of your work.
His Opinion of the Dinner.
The guests at a large dinner party
did ample Justice to the tempting
viands as course after course w’as
Berved. They were loud in their
praises of the Chinese cook, of whom
the hostess was justly proud. They
declared they never ate more deli-
cious or appetizing delicacies. Final-
ly the Chinaman brought in the last
course, a huge cake heavy with
frosting. He was a converted Chi-
naman, and desiring to honor his
religion he had put a motto on the
cake that satisfied his conscience.
It read, “Prepare to Meet Thy God."

AND A WOMAN'S WORK

blown open with nitro glycerine.
Charles Griswold of Guthrie, chair-
man of the district clerk’s associa-
tion of the state, has received over
100 letters of inquiry in regard to fees
since statehood. Under the territor-
ial regime clerks received fees from
six or seven counties. Since state
hood they are limited to the fees from
one county and the fees in United
States cases are now collected
by United States district clerks. The
clerks say, also, that the establish-
ment of county courts has taken away
one-third of the fees in county causes
by giving the new court jurisdiction
in misdemeanor cases.
Surveyors have arrived in Shawnee

LYDIA E. PINKHAM
Nature and a woman’s work com-
bined have produced the grandest
remedy for woman’s ills that the
tvorld has ever known.
In the good old-fashioned days of
our grandmothers they relied upon
the roots and herbs of the field to
cure disease and mitigate suffering.
The Indians on our 'Western
Plains to-day can produce roots and
herbs for every ailment, and cure
diseases that baffle the most skilled
physicians who have spent years in
the study of drugs.
From the roots and herbs of the
field Lydia E. Pinkliam more than
thirty years ago gave to the women
of the world a remedy for their pe-
culiar ills, more potent and effica-
cious than any combination of drugs.
Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Compound is now recognized as the
standard remedy for woman’s ills.
Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 515 N.C. St.,
Louisiana, Mo., writes:
Complete restoration to health
means so much to me that for the sake
of other suffering women I am willing
to make my troubles public.
“ For twelve years I had been suffer-
ing with the worst forms of female ills.
During that time I had eleven different
physicians without help. No tongue
can tell what I suffered, and at times I
could hardly walk. About two years
ago I wrote Mrs. Pinkham for advice.
1 followed it, and can truly say that
Lvdia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound and Mrs. Pinkham's advice, re-
stored health and strength. It is
worth mountains of gold to suffering
"What Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vege-
table Compound did for Mrs. Muff,
it will do for other suffering women.

Plants That Are Poisonous.
Many harmless plants contain
poison. Daffodil and narcissus pick-
ers are troubled with a skin disease
known as "daffodil poisoning.” Gath-
erings form under the fingernails.
They are caused by minute crystals
in the juice of the stems. The bulbs
of the white Roman hyacinth have
similar unpleasant properties.
Do You Itch?
If so, you know the sensation is not
an agreeable one, and hard to cure
unless the proper remedy is used.

remedies. It cures promptly any itch-

lieves—one box is absolutely guaran-
teed to cure.
