Ears Swelled Up and Got Raw,
Scratched In Sleep and Made
Sores. Used Cuticura Soap and
Ointment, Now Well.
415 B. W. Boulevard, Rosedale, Kansas.
FMy trouble commenced in my oars about
fifteen years ago. My ears swelled up and
got raw and ran a thick yel
low mucus. There were
small pimples that had a
thin yellow fluid in them.
When they broke the fluid
ran down on my face and
neck which poltoned tho
placos. Sometimes this
would all dry up and the
fleth would be dry and hot
and crack open In places. Then It would all
break out again. It Itched and burned
dreadfully. I would lie awake nights for
hours. I scratched In my sleep and made
sores. Then that yellow fluid would come
out of the sores. I suffered a great deal with
my head itching and burning and it broke
out In pimples around the edgo of my hair
on the back of my head.
"I used everything I heard of but got no
relief, In fact got worse. My ears swellod
two or three times their own tUe and turned
almost black and I was in despair. A friend
ulced me if I had tried Cuticura Soap and
Ointment, so I went and got a box of Cuti
cura Ointment and cake of Cuticura Soap
and commenced. By the tune I had used
one box of Cuticura Ointment and one cake
ofOutlcuraBoapI was well." (Signed) Mr.

Denies Right of Board
to Raise Water Rates
Stops falling lair
Hall's Hair Renewer certainly stop?
falling hair. No doubt about it what
ever. You will surely be satisfied. ,
The question whether the water board
has any legal right to raise water rates
higher than the 35 cents a 1,000 gallons,
which It has been doing for all iniall
j consumers by enforcing a 60-cent monthly
minimum, pas been raised by Attorney M.
O. Cunningham. The letter addressed to
the board by Mr. Cunningham last week
seems to have been pocketed by the
Water board boss, or at any rate, has not
been presented In open meeting, und
reads as follows:
OMAHA, April 16. Omaha Water Board,
City: Gentlemen I Just received a curd
from you notifying me that my water at
4331 Franklin street would be shut off
unless I paid my water bill. Permit me
to state that I have no objections to pay
llg my water bills and am perfectly will
ing to pay for all tho water I consume,
but allow me to call your attention to
one or two things In connection with this
In the first place, my water bill should
bo about 27 cents, as per your statement
Your statements show that I have used
ono hundred (100) cubic feet of water or
less during the time covered by the state,
ment. 1 noto on the face of your state
ments your meter rates showing tnat
for from nothing to 2,000 cubic feet of
water customers are to pay at the rate
of 2V4 cents per 100 cublo feet, but you
have endeavored to charge me a mini
mum of 60 centa per calendar month. I
find nothing on the statements sent in
dicating that you have & right to moke a
minimum charge for any period of Htn
where a meter has been Installed.
Also permit me to call your attention
to the fact that each of the statements
Is from five to eeven days short of the
calendar month. It is not the amount of
money your statements call for that in
terests me It is the principle Involved
and, while speaking for myself directly,
I am sure there are hundreds of cus
tomers served by the Omaha Water
board who occupy a like position to -jy-eelf.
Aa to your right to charge a minimum
of 50 cents per month, allow me to call
your attention to section 242, chapter 12 A,
Compiled Statutes of Nebraska, for the
year 181L While providing, among other
things, that the Water board "shall be
charged with the determination of water
rates, the different methods of water
service or sale of water." but the legisla
ture saw fit to modify this language as
follows: "Provided, further, that said
Water board shall, from tho hydrant
water tax and water rates to private cus
tomers fixed by said board, and not ex
ceeding the water rates to private con
sumers now established by ordinance In
any such city," etc. Ordinance No. 423
was passed June 11, 1880. by the city
council of Omaha. In itself this became
and always was the franchise or ordin
ance governing the installation, construc
tion and management of the water works
In the city of Omaha. The ordinance
provides that parties using 1,000 gallons
of water or less should pay a 35-cent
rate. The right to create and maintain
a minimum charge to consumers of water
does not exist by virtue of this, or any
other ordinance. Ordinance No. 423 has
never been repealed. Since the installa
tion of the Omaha water plant, the water
company by and with the content of the
city has seen fit to chargo all those using
1,000 gallons at the rate of 35 cents per
thousand and the customer paid for what
I will grant you that grounds may have
existed for tho complaint against the old
water company, but this is true: in all
their conduct of business in the city of
Omaha, they never attempted to fix a
minimum charge. They never said to a
consumer, "Here, you pay 60 cents per
calendar month for water." And, after
attempting to fix this minimum charge,
promptly say that,' "Instead of thirty
days, we will make It twenty-five,; that,
Instead of their being twelve months In
a year in our method of figuring there
are thirteen." What Is to prevent your
showing there are twenty-four months In
a year should you have any desire to
Increase the income of the Water board?
It seems to me that, since you in your
printed matter state that I am to pay
at the rate of 26U cents per 100 cublo
feet, and the further fact that the very
law under which you are now operating
and which was drafted, at least the
major portion thereof, by your Mr.
Howell, plainly prohibits an increase In
Then let me ask you why, under munlc
Ipat ownership, you attempt to Increase
the coet of wuter to consumers like my-

ownership for the purpose of Increasing
the price of water to small consumers,
then Indeed you are to bo congratulated
for you have certainly succeeded. I was
told, when my vote was solicited (and
I am pleased to add I never voted (or
the acquisition of the water plant) that
it was desired to purchase the Omaha
Water company plant to lessen the cost
of water to the small consumers and in
crease the cost as to the lajger.
Should you be kind enough to send me
a statement based on your meter read
ings, I will be pleased to remit for the
amount, I owe. I might also add that. If
you are Increasing my rate beoause of
meter readings, It would appear business
like to me for you to read my meter onee
In three or four months and have this
extra expense to the Water board.
I think I have made clear my position
in the matter and trust you will correct
your records and send mo statement as
