is for La Follette
FTtEMONT, Oct. 2. "I am for Senator
La Follette for president of the United
States and I don't care who knows it,"
Is Governor's Aldrlch's reply addressed
to Ross Hammond, Internal revenue col-
' lector for Nebraska to editorial comment
in Hammond's paper, published in this
"I don't think that President Taft
should be nominated and I am entitled
to that belief. He still has an oppor
tunity to do something by way of re
deeming the platform pledges of his
party and If he does there may be no
' occasion for any other candidate, but If
he does not do better in the future than
he has done in the past, he not only will
not be nominated, but he will be de
feated if nominated."
Governor Aldrich'a letter was called
forth by editorial comment by Ham
mond on the governor's policy. The
governor was quoted as saying in a
recent speech in Sioux City that Ne
braska was for La Follette and that
Taft had no friends In this state. He
has denied this Interview and also that
he was Intending to attend a meeting of
Im Follette supporters in Chicago and
that he would make La Follette speeches
In the state.

After the blister would open,

as to be almost unbearable at tlws. In this
way the sores would (pread from one place to
another, bark and forth over the whole of my
upper lip and chin, and at times tao whele
lower part of my face would be a solid core.
Thii condition continued (or four or five years,
without getting any better, and In fact ret
worse all the time, so much to tbatmywlfe

" During til this time of bolls and eczema,
I doctored with the best phyaiclani of this
Fart of the country, but to no avail. Finally
decided to try Cuticura Remedici, which I
did, taking the Cuticura Resolvent inter
rally, applying the Cuticv.ra Ointment to
the sort, and using the Cuticura Eoep for

notice Improvements, and continued to use
the Cutk-ura Remedies until within leu then
