CURE IN CUTICURA
" It it a fraat pleasure for me and I
consider it a duty to inform you what
Cuticura has dona for ma. Aboisl
twelve years ago, I contracted an erup
tion of the scalp consisting of small
pimples, about the sis of a pinhead,
which filled after a few days with pus
and whloh hurt tremendously. I tried
everything, but in vain. Finally, I
washed my head with sulphur and ap
plied a carbolic ointment. After a few
days the pimples disappeared, only to
come back again in a week. This I
suffered for ten years and then I saw
an advertisement in the paper of the
wonderful cures by Cuticura. I bought
cake of Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuti
cura Oictsnent and a bottle of Cuticura
Ulls and after three weeks I had used
only half the Soap and Ointment and
mv head was as oleaa as ever before.
After the first application it was simply
surprising how it improved.
"Mr daughter used Cuticura Soap
and Ointment for scales on the scalp and
after having used them three times her
head was clear and the hair became as
soft and fine as silk. Since then she
uses nothing but Cuticura Soap for
"In consequence of my having used
Cutioura Soap for shampooing, I no
ticed that my hands whloh almost al
ways were cracked from handling un
ctaMaed wood, lime and stone, became
bite' and velvety. Formerly I used
glycerine but one night's treatment
with Cuticura Soap and Ointment does
more for ray hands than a week's treat

In the following cities j Hastings, Grand
Island. Edgar and Fairfield.
At Hastings Mr. Hartlgan said the value
of the property of the company was fixed

cutting the stalks off close to the ground,
but .which tore . the tope of. practically all

or bustness housea were damaged, the wind
evidently being too high to touch them.

SEWARD, Neb., July 80. (special Tele
gram.) Father Murphy, priest of the
church of the Immaculate Conception at
Ulysses In court today scored another
point in his contest with Bishop Bonacum
of the Lincoln diocese of the Catholic
Borne weeks ago Bishop Bonacum ap
peared before Judge Dungan of the district
court at Hastings and secured a temporary
order restraining Father Murphy from
preaching or acting as priest at Ulysses or
at any other place In the Lincoln diocese.
The order was aimed more particularly at
Seward and Ulysses, at both of which
(laces Father Murphy had officiated as
priest In charge. The case was set for
hearing at Seward and yesterday fixed as
the date. All of yesterday and most of
today was consumed In taking testimony
and making arguments. This afternoon
Judge Dungan rendered his opinion, refus
ing to make the temporary order perma
nent. The suit was dismissed and the re
straining order dissolved.
Attorneys for Bishop Bonacum at once
announced that an appeal would be taken
to the supreme court and asked to be al
lowed to file a supersedeas bond. This
would have the effect of continuing the
temporary order until the supreme court
has passed upon the appeal and Judge
Dungan at once announced that he would
not permit It.
After the decision hundreds of friends
of Father Murphy who had come to town
to listen to the proceedings, gathered about
him, shook him by the hand and gave him
a regular ovation. During its progress he
announced that he had no hard feelings
against anyone and that It was simply a
question of right prevailing over wrong.
He then stated that next Sunday regular
services will be held In the church of the
Immaculate Conception In Ulysses and that
be will be in charge, say mass and preach
