Cure! by Cuticura
If T. had known of the Coticora Remb

saved me $200 00 (two-hundred dollars) and
an immense amount of Buttering. My dis
ease (psoriasis) conunenceil on my head in a
HKt not larger than a cent. It spread
rapidly all over my liody and got under my
nails. The scales would drop off of me ail
the time, and my suffering was endless and
without relief. One thousand dollars would
uot tempt me to have this disease over
again. I am a poor man Imt feel rich to he
relieved of what some of the doctors said
was leprosy, some ringworm, psoriasis, etc.
I took . . . and . . S-irsapariUas over one
year ami a half, Imt no cure. I cannot
praise the CrmcCRA ' Kemkdiks too much.
They have niade my skin as clear and free
from scales as a baby's. All I used of them
were three boxes of CcrricCRA, and three
bottles of timcCRA UesoLVBnt, and two
c tkes of Cuticura SOAP. If yon had lieen
hern a'ml said you would have cured me for
$200.00. you would have had the money.
I looked like the picture in your book of

purpose. I am all well. I scratched
twenty eight years, and it got to be a kind

a physician wascal'ed, but it was
to late to do her any good. The
neighbors state that Waud refused
to give his wife the medicine left
for her by the physician, but threw
it away and injected morphine in
her arm. Once, when some whis-
key had been left lor her he drank
it himself. It was not until the
(physician threatened to prosecute
him if he gave her any more mor
phine tint he let her alone. There
was soma talk of lynching when
the facts were learned, but the
threats were not cairied into eflect.
No punishment can be too severe
for such a man. Mrs. Waud's

The common lot is one of sorrow sty
at least die pessimists, they who look at
the worst side. Certainly what would
etherwise be a bright existence, is often
shadowed by soma ailment that overhang
it like a pall, obscuring perpetually the
radiauce that else would licit the path.
Such an ailment, and a .very common one,
is nervousness, oriu other w jrdi, weak u ess
of the tiervmts system, a condition only ir
remediable where inefficient or improper
means are tiken to relieve it. The con
current experience of netvous people who
have pesisteutlv used Hustetter's Stomach
Bitters is, that it conquers entirely super
sensitiveness of the nerves, as well as dis
ease so called which are invited .' and
sustained by their chronic weakness. As
the nerves gain stamina from the great
tonic the trouble, disappears. Uso the
Bitters for malaria, rheumatism, billions

Free Postal Delivery. In re
sponse to a resolution of the "sen
ate, Postmastar-General Wa'na-
maker has sent to that body an
estimate of the increased cost of
extending the free delivery system
to all cities and towns of not less
than 3,000 inhabitants, and also of
not less than 5,000. There, are
664 of the former, and the exten
sion of the system to them, would
cost i he government $1,317,000;
and 291 of the latter, requiring
$697,225 for extending the system
to them. ' At frequent intervals,
there is a-demand made for re
duced rates of postage, but if the
people of the United States could
be polled on the question it would
be found that a very large ma
jority want increased efficiency in
the postal service much more than
they want one-cent let'er postage.
There is no general demand for re
duction in rates, but there-is a
very strong desire to have the
postal service employed to better
