Whole Body Covered with Cuban Itch Cuticura Remedies Cured at Cost of Seventy-Fiv- e Cents. My little boy, when only an infant of three months, caught the Cuban Itch. Sores broke out from his head to the bottom of his feet He would itch and claw himself and cry all the time. He could not sleep day or night and a light dress is all he could wear. I called one of our best doctors to treat him, hut he seemed to get worse. He suffered so terribly that my husband said he believed he would have to die. I had almost given up hope when a lady friend told me to try the Cuticura Remedies. I used the Cuticura Soap and applied the Cuticura Ointment and he at once fell into a sleep, and he slept with ease for the first time since two months. After three applications the sores began to dry up, and in just two weeks from the day I commenced to use the Cuticura Remedies my baby was entirely well. The treatment only cost 75c, and I would have gladly paid $100 if I could not have got it cheaper. I feel safe in saying that the Cuticura Remedies saved his life. He is now a boy of five years.

Busy people never have time to dwell very much on the passing of the seasons. The days are so full of tasks and Father Time Is always catching up and getting ahead of us in spite of his advanced age. It is always the same old story! Spring surprises us with its blossoms and its bursting brooks and then summer has come and gone before we know it. Very few of us stop to think that this swiftness of time in its passing indicates that we are really living rather than lolling through life. It is only when the days hang upon our hands that we know how blessed are those other times when we have to make lists of the many things we have to do and get up early mornings to begin them. Of course we are likely to complain that we get so little done, especially at this time, when the calendars tell us that another 365 days have become a part of yesterdays 7,000 years. We look back regretfully and repine that we have so little to record in the way of achievement, beyond the mere act of living from day to day and from week to week. But living in the right spirit, striving, if not always accomplishing and completing the tasks we set ourselves, is nothing to regret. It comes near to that simple life that sounds so grand and inspiring when it is lived in the woods, but which is quite as fine when lived in a big city. There Is no doubt that when we try to set up standards of happiness and contentment and 'peace at the close of a year that has had its rifts of sunshine and its stretches of shade, that it Is impossible to put wealth, or fame, or success, personal popularity, beauty or even health itself forward as the great, good thing that makes life worth living. The thing that counts is the ability and the desire to feel an interest in things, in events and persons in the game of life itself. All the other blessings pall unless that interest remains. It is very closely akin to health for it is a part of youth, of vitality, of life. It has become the general practice to speed the departure of the old year with every indication of rejoicing, welcoming in the new with acclaim and expressions of satisfaction. It is natural and wholesome to look forward, but those of us who wish to include the brick of gratitude in the building of our characters should learn to omit our complaints of the luck the old year has brought us. In truth, the new year will be to a great extent like the old what we make it and how we take it. Things will happen in accordance with the same laws that guide tbs big earth of which we are a small part. So we can greet 1908 in a calm and happy manner, rather than with any manifestations of frenzied joy at its coming, and let us have the good manners to speed our parting guest, 1907, politely. With ail his faults we know him for what he was and the new year is as ' yet a stranger tp us. We can hope and believe that all good things will come with him, but let us avoid the hackneyed congratulation on the passing of a twelve-montthat probably treated us better than we deserved. The dawning of another January is Invariably the time for what are called which translate "good resolutions, themselves into rash promises, usually broken before the new year is well under way. That was the way of expressing an inclination to reform ones bad habits and people kept on from youth to old age making these good resolutions every 31st of December, finding themselves each year further from perfection than ever. Good resolutions are not so prevalent, or at least not so noisy as they used to be at this time. They have become popular material for the comic papers and everybody knows what a joke they are. Nevertheless, the close of a year is a capital time for a look back, a retrospect in which we can see the faults that are on the mend with us, or the ones that have persevered and grown A h stronger. Maybe some new tendency has sprung up which does not promise well. REFUSE SU3STITUTES. DEFIANCE STARCH 5112 At all events if we are able to get a new view of our characters as though a searchlight had been thrown to Improve. It Is only when we blindly consider ourselves as right in everything that we are all wrong. It is only when we blindly consider oqrselve3 as right la everything that we are all wrong. So if your look back shows you mistakes and errors and misbeliefs, be glad that the New Year gives you a clean slate to try for the right road and the true goal. Be thankful for the mental perspective when you see it with clear sight- with new true eyes. There Is no need of making resolutions, for right seeing means right thinking and right thinking Is the path to right living. Perhaps your faults are those mean little ones which you would like to exchange in a bunch for one noble sin, but there are no exchanges of that sort or we should all be noble sinners. The petty faults are the thorns that cluster round some of the finest roses in lifes big garden, crowding, jarring, overtopping one another in their eagerness to get to the light. Maybe the old year has been a good friend In some special instances that you can recall. Perhaps it brought you back with a short, sharp shock from a too arrogant happiness or an overconfident success. Be glad of that jar, even though it kept you stirred up for awhile. Perhaps the past 12 months have healed some breach or brought some ship home, the white sails of which you have been watching wistfully for months or years far out at qea. Be glad of that. Perhaps some millstone has fallen from you and you stand free at last on the great highway with long, manacled arms reached out to the sky. Be glad! Or peace has settled on a troubled ocean and you can greet the sunrise with a smile and a prayer of thankfulness for another day. Maybe there is a cradle in one corner of your home this New Years eve with a most important guest cuddled In down blankets and rose-lea- f palms upturned for your kisses. No need to tell you to be glad. Or success has come to crown some effort at which you have tolled rather wearily, hardly daring to hope. Or if it has been withheld, be glad that you have nevertheless tried. It will all come to you some day. The old year has taught us lessons. Let us profit by them and enter into the new armed with experience rather than plunge into it as though it were a rose garden. It is quite as full of danger and conflict and clouds as the old friend that is going. Let us wish it will have even as much Bunshine and gladness and joy. We can meet it with splendid hope and lively faith for those two qualities are what make our dreams come true. Let us cherish a few good hopes that it may bring us the things we stand in need of health, happiness, good friends success, joy and the clear vision that will teach us to discern the false from the true.Mdy it leave us our beliefs and our Ideals. Teach us to love more and to hate not at all. To be content with the blessings that we have. To cultivate sweetness and good nature rather than exclusiveness. To meet the world with a smile. To stifle criticism of things and people. Never to make little of our own. A The October bride bestowed ecstatkisses fluttering upon the several members of the group that welcomed her back to town. Then she seated herself with an air of much dignity and looked as severe as it is possible for one to look with a dimple In ones chin. We did have a heavenly time, she admitted. But I am sure you haven't the right idea as to why it w as so perfect. Why, because it was your wedding trip, of course, protested one. Not at all for that reason, stoutly asserted the October bride, blushIt would be truer ing nevertheless. to say that it was in spite of that. You know, girls, pursued the October bride, an earnest wrinkle in her brow, Jack and 1 are much too old for foolishness. Yes. we are. So we decided at the very beginning that we were going to be perfectly sensible and natural about our little tour and not a bit like the conventional young couple. Cant you just see them! exclaimed one of the listeners. Be still! So we planned to go straight to New York, getting there in time for the art exhibit we were both crazy to see. Besides, we would visit a few relatives, have a good time with Jacks old friends and go about town as much as we liked. - Now, wasn't that a sensible enough programme for ic hugs and little had occa- sion many times to employ a certain odd character of the town known as Aunt Cecilia Cromwell.

And it was such fun that Jack and I both said on the way home we should consider it a real duty to tell everybody who was going to be married this year to try It.

Jack and I were both rather sorry about this, but Jack said that, after all, we should be going back in a few months, and, as long as we were so hurried this time, perhaps it was just as well that it wasnt known by many of his Hit Him Again.
