Baby a Mass of Sores. Looked for His
Death any Minute. Cuticura Soap
and Ointment Brought First Good
. Sleep for Two Years. Soon Cured.
R. T. D. 4, Mt. Gilead, Ohio. "When my
little boy was a week old he was taken with
eczema and I was looking for his death any
minute. First bis face turned
so red, but I did not pay any
attention to it. It began to
get worse and he Just tossed
bis little head to and fro on
Vie pillow and cried day and
night. He began to scratch
himself so that I had to muf
fle his little bands, and then
the rash began to go over his
whole body until he was a
mass of running sores. The
more 1 doctored the worse be got. He had it
o oad that his little ears began to rot off and
bis scalp was something awful to look at.- I
saw the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment
advertised and got a bar of Cuticura Soap,
making a lather all over his body with the
Soap and hot water and then I dried him off
well and anointed him with the Cuticura Oint
ment. He went right to sleep and slept foul
hours, the first good sleep he had had for very
nearly two years, so I kept on using the Cuti
cura Soap and Ointment and it was no time
before his skin began to get well. Soon he was
completely cured. He is sixteen yean old
now and has not had a sign of the eczema
since he was cured by the Cuticura Soap and
Ointment." (Signed) Mrs. N. M. Beecher,
Sept. 13, 1011.
No stronger evidence than this could be
given of the success and economy of warm
baths with Cuticura Soap and gentle applica
tions of Cuticura Ointment in the treatment
of torturing, disfiguring humors of the skin.

DRENCHING RAINS SOAK BELT
Heaviest Downpour of Year in the
PRECIPITATION IS GENERAL
Republican Valley Receives a Lib-
eral Share of the MoUtare,

General, torrential rains, following the
scattering precipitation that has fallen
intermittently through the grain belt for
a week or ten days came again Wednesday
night, giving Omaha and general sec
tions of Nebraska the most thorough
drenching they have had since last year.

the twenty-four hours ending at 7 o'clock
yesterday morning 1.63 inches of rain
were recorded at this point.
Colonel Welsh's Observations.
"The rains were quite general," says
he. "The heaviest downpour appears to
have been up and down the Missouri val
ley, continuing west in diminishing de

iest precipitation was In central rd
eastern Nebraska, but the western sec

of moisture. In some of the valley coun
ties, especially in the southeastern part
of the state, the downpour was ex
tremely heavy, the storm In some oarts
reaching the proportions of almost a
Heavy Rainfall in Valley.
In some sections along the Missouri
river two inches of rain fell. From
O'Neill east to the Missouri river the
gauges showed from one to two inches.
In the neighborhood of Stanton about the
same amount of moisture Is reported. In
the Republican valley, where rain Is al
ways welcome, there was a liberal down
pour, McCook reporting one inch. The
only point in Nebraska reporting no rain
during the night Is Alliance, In the sand
bill district. Rain is still falling at some

the railroad offices, there are many lo
calities in Nebraska and Kansas where
farmers are beginning to pray for a ces
sation of the rains which have been so
general over the two states during the
last ten days.
