SHE COULD NOT WALK
For Months—Burning Humor on Ankles
—Opiates Alone Brougnt Sleep
—Eczema Yielded to Cuticura.
"I had eczema for over two years.
1 had two physicians, hut they only
gave me relief for a short time and I
:annot enumerate the ointments and
'otions I used to no purpose. My ank-
'es were one mass of sores. The iteh-
ng and burning were so intense that
1 could not sleep. 1 could not walk for
nearly four months. One day my hus-
band said I had hotter try the Cuticura
Remedies. After using them three
times 1 had the best night’s rest in
months unless 1 took an opiate. I
used one set of Cuticura Soap. Oint-
ment, and Pills, and my ankles healed
in a short time. It is now a year since
I used Cuticura, and there has been no
return of the eczema. Mrs. David

One Grasps Other’s Hand and Pays

Middletown, N. Y.—^en years ago
Theodore Woolsey and Samuel Sellen,
farmers, had a quarrel over a line
fence which resulted in a lawsuit. Sel-
len was beaten, had to pay costs and
vowed he would never speak to Wool-
sey again. The men sold their farms
soon after that and left the neighbor-
hood. Neither had seen the other un-
til the other day, when an accident
sustained by Woolsey brought about a
Sellen was driving along the high-
way when he overtook a supposed
stranger whose horse had fallen in
the road. He stopped and assisted
him in getting the animal on his feet.
When Woolsey recognized him as the
man with whom he had quarreled he
grasped the hand of his old enemy j
‘‘God bless you, Samuel Sellen.
Won't you forgive me for the wrong I !
did you years ago? You shall be re- !
Imbursed for all the old lawsuit cost i
"Yes, I will forgive you,” replied
Sellen, wringing Woolsey’ hand, “and i
you need not pay me either.”
Woolsey insisted upon paying the j
money, however. The men now live |
in different parts of the state.
Louis Jones of the Grand opera
house had the blues. His brother, a
colored man, usually in good humor,
had ’em, too. Neither knew just why
he had ’em, but they had ’em just the
same. They talked of the weather,
the times and a dozen other gloomy
subjects. There was nothing sunny
in the soul of a patron or a barber.
Finally both sighed in concert and a
silence fell over the shop—yes, over a
barber shop. The colored man was
the first to speak. After several mo-
ments of silence he gave vent to an- 1
other sigh and said:
“Well, as de old philosopah says: |

Joplin; Mo.—An interstate romance,
hatched of an egg shipped from Joplin
to Winsted, Conn., is disclosed in a
dispatch announcing that Emil Laurit-
zoii of Winsted had observed the ad-
dress of Miss Louise Adcock of Jop-
lin on an egg from a case he was un-
packing; that through this incident a
correspondence had begun, and later
had terminated in a marriage engage-
ment and preparations for a trip to
There are no Adcocks living in Jop-
lin. Xo one named Louise Adcock
has been employed in Joplin commis-
sion houses, and the only tangible
clew that might throw light on the
Connecticut egg story comes through
the police department. C’apt. Tom
Lawson recalls that a woman named
Louise Adcock ran a huckster wagon
in the region round about Joplin about
ten years ago.
The presumption here is that Louise
Adcock wrote her name and address
on a dominicker egg which was des-
tined for cold storage, and that the
ancient egg has just reached Winsted
after ten years.

When you need a medicine for women’s ills, we urge you earnestly to take Car- |
dui. Cardui is a woman’s medicine. It is not for men, but only for such women as ;|
suffer from the ills peculiar to women. Therefore, you should take
Wine of Cardui
if sick, becaus.e it has helped others who suffered as you do. Mrs. Bettie Arp, of
Menlo, Ga., writes: “I was troubled with female complaint for twelve months. The
doctors treated me, but did me little good, so I took Cardui, and it saved my life.”
