Suffered Tremendous Itching Over
Whole Body -Scratched Until

Soreness and Excruciating Pains
A Western Lady's
WONDERFUL CURE BY
"List year at this time I suffered
with ft tremendous Itching on my
back, which grew worse and worse, un
til it spread over the whole body, and
only niy face and bands were free.
For folit ttiotAhs or so 1 suffered the
tnrnventa of the damned, and I had to
cratch, scratch, scratch, until I bled.
At night when I went to bed things
A -Ct worse, and I had at times to get
up and scratch my body all over, until
I was as sore as could ne, and until I
- suffered excruciating pains. I did not
know what it was, aud resorted to a
number of blood purifiers, using at
times also Cuticura Soap. They told
me then that I was suffering from
enema. Then I made up my mind
that I would also una Cuticura Oint
ment and Cuticura Resolvent. I used
them according to instructions, and very
soon indeed 1 was greatly relieved. I
continued .until well, and now 1 am
ready to recommend the Cuticura Rein
. edits to any one who suffers as did your
obedient servant. Mrs. Mary Metigor,

Humors, Eczemes, and Itchings
Cured by Cuticura
The agonizing itching and burning
of the skin, as in eciems: the frightful
scaling, as in psoriasis; Hie loss of hair
and crusting of scalp, as in sr ailed
head all demand a remedy of almost
superhuman virtues to successfully
cope with them. That Cuticura Soap,
Ointment, and Tills are such standi
proven beyond all doubt.

RILLED BY YELLOW PRESS
Such is Frank L. Campbell's View of .John
A. MoOall's Death.
LOCAL AGENT SAYS CHIEF WAS FOR OMAHA
Member of Omaha Club and Inter,
eatcd In Local Enterprises
and Charities to Which
"The yellow Journals of the country killed
John A. McCall, ex-president of the New
York LJfe Insurance company," aatd Frank
I Campbell, local representative of the
company, Monday morning. "Mr. McCall
was an honent man and died poor, and the
misstatements of the sensational papers,
which misquoted him In Interviews and
used only that part of his testimony which
suited them in making sensational stories,
broke his heart."
"In the death of John A. McCall Omaha
has lost a great admirer and a valued
friond. In his several visits to this city
he always spoke In highest praise and
confidence of the future greatness of
Omaha. Mr. McCall waa personally ac
quainted with many of our leading busi
ness and professional men and had the
greatest respect of all who knew him. For
many years he was a member of the
Omaha club and always made It bis head
quarters when In the city. As to Mr. Mc
Call's confidence In and loyalty to our city.
It will be remembered he subscribed sev
eral thousand dollars to the Transmlssls
sippl exposition and the Toung Men's
Christian association. He also subscribed a
sum to the new hotel project, but owing to
a later bylaw passed by the trustees
wherein no subscription for any purpose
whatever should In the future be made,
the same waa cancelled. The New York
Life In the erection of Its building at Sev
enteenth and Farnam streets did more for
the city thaa all the other life Insurance
companies combined. When Mr. McCall
accepted the presidency of the New York
Life, In 1591. the company's assets amounted
to 1125,000,000. During the fourteen years of
his Incumbency this was Increased to 1(36.
83).000 and during the same period the an
nual income ircreaaed from $31,000,000 to
tlOI.000,000. dividends from $1,260,000 to $3,147,
00r total payments of year to policy hold
era from $12,671,000 to $40,262.0110 and Insur
ance In force from $576,000,000 to $2,061,000,000.
"Mr. McCall waa an Ideal executive of
ficer, but In always shouldering the mis
takes and In assuming responsibilities and
even in atanding aponsor for the mlstakea
nf othera he all' the more became the
scrapegoat of the yellow Journals. These
latter are now forced to admit that his
frsnk snd courageous testimony before the
Investigating committee lient paved the Way
for Instituting necessary reforms. It goes
without saying that when the, history of
life Insurance companies la written the
name of John A. McCall will be written In
