is in Canada that the Canadian farmer
will be swamped by the arrival of
food products from the United States.

is based on the report of President
Taft. in which he said that Canada
had come to "the parting of the
ways." as justification for having
pushed the reciprocity agreement

a solid mass, a running sore. It was
awful; the child cried continually. W
had to hold him and watch him to
keep him from scratching the sore.
His suffering was dreadful. At last
we remembered Cutlcura Remedies.
We got a dollar bottle of Cutlcura Re
Bolvent, a box of Cutlcura Ointment,
and a bar of Cutlcura Soap. We gave
the Resolvent as directed, washed the
head with the Cutlcura Soap, and ap
plied the Cutlcura Ointment. We had
not used half before the child's head
was clear and free from eczema, and
It has never come back again. His
head was healthy and he had a beau
tiful head of hair. I think the Cutl
cura Ointment very good for the hair.
It makes the hair grow and prevents
falling hair." (Signed) Mrs. Francis
Lund. Plain City, Utah. Sept. 19, 1910.
Although Cutlcura Soap and Oint
ment are sold everywhere, a sample
of each, with 32-page book, will be
mailed free on application to "Cutl
cura," Dept. 12 L. Boston.

one bitter night, "what do those poor
little children do who haven't got a
door to cover them?" Youth's Com
