Sleepless Nights for Miuher
and Awful Suffering
CURED BY GUTICURA
Had Given up All Hope of Ever
Making Any Cure.
u Hy little girl has been suffering for
two years or more from eczema, and
during that time I could not get a
night's sleep, as her ailment was very '
" 1 had tried so many remedies and
spent much money, deriving no bene*
fit, I bad absolutely given up all hope
of making any cure. But as a last re-
sort I was persuaded to try a set of the
Cuticura remedies, and to my great
delight a marked change was mani-
fested from the first application. I
fave the child a bath with Cuticura
oap, using a soft piece of muslin cloth.
This 1 did twice a day, each time fol-
lowing with the Cuticura Ointment,
and at the same time gave the ResoU
vent, according to directions. Onebox
of the Ointment and two bottles of the
Resolvent, together with the Soap,
effected a permanent cure. I submit
this for publication If you desire, hop*
Ing It will add to your success and assist
so many thousands of sufferers In cur*
Ing themselves." Mks. I. B. JONES,
Aldington, Ind. T.
The first step in the treatment of the
chronic forms is to remove the scales
and crusts and soften the skin, by
warm baths with Cuticura Soap. The
■calp, ears, elbows, hands, ankles and
feet will require frequently a thorough
soaking in order to penetrate the thick*
ened skin and crusts with which these
parts are often covered. Dry care-
fully, and apply Cuticura Ointment,
lightly at first, ami where advisable
spread It on plec<. of soft cloth and
bind in place, 'l ake the Resolvent,
pills, or liquid. In medium doses. Do
not use cold water In bathing, and
avoid cold, raw winds. t

Colonel L. I. Livingston, Member of

mittee on Appropriations in the House
nf Hepresentatives, whose home is at
Atlanta, Ga., writes:
" I take pleasure In Joining with
General Wheeler, Congressman
Brewer and others In recommending
Peruna as an excellent tonic and
m catarrh cure."—Col. L. I. Livingston.
All phases ot-'catarrh, acute or chronic,
are promptly and permanently cured.
It Is through its operation upon the ner-
vous system that Peruna has attained
such a world-wide reputation as a sure
and reliable remedy for all phases of
catarrh wherever located.
Mr. Jas. O. Morin, 1179 Ontario street
Montreal, Canada, writes:
« Peruna is certainly a great catarrh
remedy. It cured me of catarrh of the
head and I gladly indorse it. Canadians
are peculiarly at'licted with this disease
and for years the doctors have tried to
overcome it with elixirs, powders and
pills, but Peruna lias solved the question
and since the medicine has been estab-
lished here hundreds of people have
been cured of c-.tarrh."—Jas. O. Morin.
If you do not derive prompt and satis-
factory results from the use of Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case and ho will

For Col. J. K. Elliott
To the voters of Precinct No. 1.;—
The undersigned, who have lived
near neighbors to Col. J. K. Elliott
for the last five or six years, desire
to bear testimony to his upright
christian character, and his worth as
a citizen and neighbor. He was a
colonel in the Confederate army, and
was at one time a man of consider-
able means, but his fortune was
swept away, and he must now in his
old age depend upon his daily labor
for his support. He is broken in
health, and has a wife who is almost
an invalid. If elected justice of the
peace of this precinct, we feel sure
he will discharge hi« duties faithfully
and we know that he is qualified for
the position, he having held a simi-
lar position in Alabama for several
years. If you want to help a man
who is capable and needy, please turn
out next Saturday and do what you
can for Col. Klliott. 1

Mr. John McLeod and Miss Cora
Cornell stole a march on their friends
last night and were united in mar-
riage at the home of Rev. J. F. Quis-
Their friends have been watching
them recently and had decided the
wedding would tako place next
month; friends usually decide these
matters to their own satisfaction,
but the young couple did not abide
by the prophesies; they had decided
on July 26 as a suitable date for ty-
ing the nuptial knot, so at 8:30 last
night their wishes wera carried out
by the First Christian pastor who did
it with a short and pretty ceremony.
The contracting parties have a host
of friends here who join in congratu-
lations. They were thrown together
a great deal in the central office of
the Southwestern Telephone Com-
pany, where both have been for some
time. John was a lineman, but he
took occasion to see that things were
all right at the office and he found so
many things there needing attention
that he spent considerable time at
that place and when things were not
out of order he stayed there anyhow
to see that no accident should occur
—and one pretty operator never or-
dered him from the office.
The boys say that John bought a
handsome ring and said it was not
the best conductor of electricity, but
that it was fine for affection and,
when he said, "Here's a ring for you,"
Miss Cora whispered: "Number?"

Few Minutes Today
About noon today a heavy rain be-

an hour, drenching every one who

If sunshine follows, the shower

Timing an Egg.
Cooks are often accused of
want of method, but the Aunt
Dinah in Howard Paul's new egg
story is not open to any such re-
proach. Invariably when she put
the eggs in the saucepan she be-
gan singing "Rock of Ages," and
tang through two verses. "Aunt
Dinah," asked Mr. Paul, "are
there not three verses in that
hymn?" "Dar is, massa, but I
«ings only two when I wants 'em
soft and three when I wants 'em
hard." His other egg story is
good, too. He was traveling cn a
Pennsylvania railway, and wiien
his breakfast was brought the
eggs were underdone. "What
time are we making on this
train?" he asked the waiter. "A
mile a minute, sir." "Then boil
the eggs another mile and they'll
bt quite right."
