PREACHER AND THE POET. Writer Speculates on Shakespeart at a Churchgoer. Probably Shakespeare did liis own Milking on questions of religion, said little, and conformed 6trictly to the ex Uting order Still we question if he was a good ehurehgoer. The town aid church of Stratford had a decide-- l bent toward Piesbyterianisni. and '.here is reason to think that he did not get Him dii well with '. in this respect. elf the wisest of preachers, he does not seem to have been fond of preach Ing. That which sounds most like it and very wise it is conies from Polonius. whom he calls "a prating old fool " We fear that when he walked to church with his wife he went no farther than the porch, but strolled alon; the Avon, where he was found by Susanna and Judith on "a grassy bank" in close converse with "daisies " pied and violets blue," and as became Sunday. And in winter he was not sorry "when cough ing drowned the parson's saw." The preacher and the poet have never got on well together, and will not until they are identically the same person, as Cardinal Newman says: and they must not divide and antagonize what Sod have joined together.

"Last year, after having my little girl treated by a very prominent physician for an obstinate case of eczema, I resorted to the Cuticura Remedies, and was so well pleased with the almost instantaneous relief afforded that we discarded the physician's prescription and relied entirely on the Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment, and Cuticura Pills. When we commenced with the Cuticura Remedies her feet and limbs were covered In about six with running sores. weeks we had her completely well, and there has been no recurrence of the trouble. "In July of this year a little boy In our family poisoned his hands and arms with poison oak, and in twenty-fou- r hours his hands and arms were a mass of torturing sores. We used only the Cuticura Remedies, washing his hands and arms with the Cuticura Soap, and anointing them with the Cuticura Ointment, and then gave him the Cuticura Resolvent, and three weeks his hands arms healed up, So we have lots of cause for feeling grateful for the Cuticura Remedies. We find that the Cuticura Remedies are a valuable household standby, living as we do twelve miles from a doctor. Mrs. Lizzie Vincent Thomas, Fairmont, Ridge, Tenn., Oct. 13, 1905."

I was unable to do my work because my limbs pained me so and my feet were swollen. I got numb and dizzy, my tongue seemed at times to be paralyzed so that I couldn't speak distinctly.
