Sioux Falls, 8. D. "My trouble of skin
disease started merely as a rash on my face
and neck, but it grew and kept getting
worse until large scaos
' would form, fester and
break. This was Just on
the one side of my face,
but It soon scattered to the
other side. I suffered a
great deal especially at
night on account of Its itch
ing and burning. I would
scratch it and of course that
irritated it very much. This rash was on
my face for about two years sometimes
breaking out lots worse and forming larger
sores. It kept me from sleeping day or
night for a couple of months. My face
looked disgraceful, and I was almost ashamed
to be seen by my friends.
"A friend asked me to try Cuticura Soap
and Cuticura Ointment. I would bathe my
face with hot water and a lot of Cuticura
Soap, then I would put on the Cuticura
Ointment.. In less than two days' time,
the soreness and Inflammation had almost
entirely disappeared, and in four weeks'
time you could not see any of the rash.
Now my face is without a spot of any kind.
I also use them for my scalp and hair. They
cured me completely." (Signed) Miss
Pansy Hutchins. Feb. 6, 1912.

Charles Heine, president of the Guar
antee Laundry, was a lover for twelve
years and now he is a husband. He met
Miss Agnes Hamann at a German Lu
theran church picnic a dozen years ago
and Sunday on tho anniversary of that
meeting he married her. Rev.,F. B. Fraise
tntroduce,4' the two.- wjjo we?s lovers at
first sight,, and officiated at the wedding
at the home of Fred Schroeder, 1114 South
Heine had been invited to perform as
godfather at the christeining of Mr. and
Mrs. Schroeilcr's 3-weeks-okl daughter,
Gwendolin Dorothy, and Miss Hamann
was also there. The bride is Schroeder's
"Now, we invite you to be best man
at our wedding," said Charlie as he drew
a scintillating ring from ills pocket and
slipped it on the sweetheart's finger.
He addressed his prospective brother-in-law.
Strong Heart Gives Way.
Schroeder has a strong heart, but it
gave way under the strain of that oc
casion, for Heine's friends had given up
all hope that he would ever become a
benedict. They had made bets with
heavy odds that he would never gather
the nerve to ask Miss Hamann, but he
surprised them all by calmly performing
the solemn rite in the presence of the
Rev. Fraise had known the bride since
she was a little tot and had confirmed
her in tho German Lutheran church
eighteen years ago. There were tears
in his eyes as lie placed Miss Hamann's
hand in the hand of her lover and slowly
pronounced them man and wife. Mr.
and Mrs. Schroeder "stood up" with the
bride and groom.
Fred Sjchroedcr's grandmother, Mrs.
Charlotte Hobur, of Council Bluffs, who,
despite her i2 years, has been present at
the christening of three grandchildren.
witnessed the wedding ceremony. Mr.
While he has no desire to enter into a
controversy, General Manager Walters
dees not agree with Water Commissioner
Howell, who says the company discriml
nates against the city in the matter of
setting cars to be unloaded. Mr. Walters
"The city is treated the same as every
other customer of the Northwestern rail
road. When a car arrives, loaded with
material for the city, whether It be water
pipe or paving material, it is set in at the
place designated by the city officials and
that within twenty-four hours. The only
deviation from this rule is on coal for
the Florence plant. .For years we have
switched to Florence three days in the
week. This rule was adopted on uccount
of convenience to the old water j.impany.
That company wanted the -ars tliiee
times a week and wo switched accord
ingly. We have followed the same rule
since the city tooU over the property and
have had no complaint.
"As to Mr. Howell saying that the city
pays its bills every thirty or vixty days,
being a cause for delay in selling cars,
there is nothing to it. We consider a bill
against the city just as good as money
in the bar: and don't expect Hie monr-y
until the claim can be audited .ind passed
upon. This rule with reference to ?:ay
ment applies with many large corpora
tions all over the country, and :ho city of
Omaha Is no exception. Its cars go for
ward just exactly as they would )t the
charges were prepaid. There Is abso
lutely nothing to this claim of delay."
With the heavy rain that was general
over tho eat hilf of Nebraska Sunday
afternoon and n'ght, falling In places
where It was mom needed, railroad and
grain men are enthusiastically optimistic
and ars freely predicting for Ne
braska a corn crop that will be anywhere
from 200,000,000 to 250,000,000 busiiels, one
very close to the bumper mark.
Out in tho central part of the Hate the
rain seemed to be a continuation of that
of Saturday and kept on working east.
Along the Northwestern road it extended
from Neligh as far south as Superior and
as far east as the Missouri river, the
precipitation ranging from one-half to
one Inch, with one and one-half Inches
over all of the Albion line.
Corn Helped Greatly.
Along the Missouri Pacific and the Bur
lington's river line, where the corn was in
a critical condition, a most copious rain
fell over the entire distance from Omaha
to the state line on the south. There was
one and three-fourths inches at Platta-
mouth, an Inch at Nebraska City, Falls
City and far over Into Kansas and over
the country to the west, out as far as
McCook. Seward, for Instance, got an
even two Inchej, while Beatrice, Fnirbury,
Weeping Water, Louisville, Crete, Lin
coln, Holdrcgo and a doien other towns
along the lines came in with reports of
an Inch and better.
From Omaha west along the Union Pa
cific as far as Kearney, there was rain
and some to spare. Fremont reported two
inches and from a few miles west and
all the way through to Grand Island,
there was an inch and one-half, with
about three-fourths of an inch on the
Norfolk, St. Paul, Callaway and other
branches to the north of the main line.
Corn la Made Certain.
Railroad men declare that the rain that
has covered the entire state since Satur
day morning has practically made certain
a corn crop that will be fully up to the
average, it not better than any that
hag been raised in the last ten years.
They contend that now the corn" has
reached such a height that the stalks
and the blades shado the ground com
pletely and that It Is impossible for the
soil to dry out to such an eatent that
future hot winds can injure the cereal.

I could point to I don't know how many
women whj used to be so very, very fat,
who are now quite slender and are grow

learn the cause of so many fat monstros

have been snooping to some advantage,

The interests of the city of Omaha and of the
state of Nebraska are as strongly bound to
gether as are those of husband and wife, of
parent and child.
Nothing can hurt one without its affectinj the other.
Both share in the prosperity of each. No effort to promote separately thej
fortunes of either city or state would be one hundredth part as effective a8
when included together.
Omaha is the great market and clearing house of
the entire state. It holds the key that unlocks the door through which
pour the golden harvests, the live stock, the dairy products and manufac
tures of Nebraska to the great eastern centers of consumption and redis
tribution. The stronger, bigger, more populous Omaha is, the
more avenues it will open up to the various crops and products of the
state, the greater demand it will create for the output of farm and cattle
range, and the more money will flow bask into the pockets of the pro
ducers. The story of every added acre under cultivation, of every in
crease of bushels per acre, of every addition to the herds of cattle
and swine and flocks of sheep, or, to the pounds of butter fat, is told in the
banks of Omaha. It helps build the city's fortunes.
The city and the state are partners in the big busi
ness of developing to the utmost the wonderful resources of Nebraska.
This community of interest idea is being worked out in the most complete
manner in the forthcoming
