f j "I had eczema on my bands for ten
2 tan. At first it would break out only
i winter. Then it finally came to
stay, l had three
good doctors to do
all they could, but
none of. them did
any good. I then
used - one box of
and three bottles of
. and was completely
cured. My hands
were raw all over,
inside and out,
and ' the eczema,
was ipreading all over my body and
limbs. Before I had used one bottle
of Cuticura Resolvent, together with
. the Ointment, my sores were nearly
healed over, and by the time I had
used the third bottle, I was entirely
. well. I had a good appetite and was
fleshier than I ever was. - To any one
who. has any skin or blood disease I
would honestly advise them to get the
Cuticura Remedies and get well quicker
, than all the doctors in the State can
cure you." Mrs. M. E. Falinr

CURED OPJTCHING HUMOR
" I have been troubled with a humor
" on the back of my neck and head for
four or five years. It had an itching and
; burning sensation, and was a very un
comfortable feeling. I have used the
Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent
Pills three months, and can say I am
completely cured." Respectfully,

Waslington, March 23.-The situ-i Miny Poetofficw.

mob Monday night a few hours after , Department of the United States does
the United States Supreme Court had . not equal in amount or in cost of hand
granted a stay of execution of the j ling the annual distribution of free
deati sentence passed by a State court seeds by Congress, is one of the inter-
assumed a serious aspect today, when
telegrams were received by Freaident
Roosevelt, members of the Supreme
Court fand ' Attorney -General Moody
from a number of the moat prominent
and conservative citizens' of Chatta
nooga asking that the ' Government
leave the situation to Chattanooga for
the local authorities U deal with, ex
plaining that for the Federal authori
ties to take a hand in the matter at
this time would, in view of the present
disturbed condition, result in nothing
short of g grave race war. : The mes
sages were carefully considered at the
Cabinet meeting today, and while the
force of the argument was appreciated
by the President and his official ad
visers, nothing could be determined
until the Supreme Court justices could
be consulted. : It ib the Supreme Court
that is most concerned in the matter,
as it was the affront to the dignity and
prestige of . that body that brought
about thu present Btate of affairs.
Mr. Walter Pugh called at the Jour
nal office last night and demanded the
story in full published in the Journal
last Wednesday relative to a wreck of
a gasolene boat in which he and others
were passengers at a point near Beau
fort - He states that the story was er.
tirely without foundation and that', the
Journal informants were romancing
when they reported it. , , , , ,
The Journal ver severely regrets the
publication of the story since it was
not true and does not intend' to- "print
any news unless it can be au then ica ted
but at the same time It -disclaims- any
motive than just that to publish the
news - as reported to it A newspa
per it must be admitted, is at a disad
vantage in such cases, acting always
in good faith that its : information
ia reliable and authetic. - It was on this
ground that the Journal published, the
story last Wednesday and there was
no other motive than to print the news.

Greensboro. March 24 y The final
giuners report was made public on Tues
day, and the first impulse of the public
was to regard It as bearish, and the
market in a few moments lost about 40
points, May selling as low as 1038. A care
ful stud of the report however shows
it to be bullish, and the available high
grades will all be needed before sun
plies can be received from the new crop.
The weather has been less favorable,
and this has helped along the bull
movement, although the gain in the new
crop positions is considerably less than
in the present crop. The spinners in all

COST OF FREE SEED
Exceeds Thai of Entir Mall of Treasury De-
esting statements made by Postmaster
General Gortelyou in a memorandum
sent to Congress. '-- That it exceeds the
entire mail combined of the State, War
and Navy Departments and exceeds
even that of the Pension Department is
also made clear In the report; It may
seem increditable tothe man who gets'
an envelope of seeds from his Congress
man that the aggregate cost of sending
out those seeds over the country costs
the ' government about three hundred
thousand dollars year. The estimat-'
ed number of packages sent out is 973,
000, computing at the lowest estimate
5 cents a pound the cost of handling
this matter is $34,000. This does not
include anv allowance for clerk hire the ..... ...

time for which, if in the aggregate and , , ..: , , .
including the time of carriers were es
timated at the low figure of ; five min

clerk and carrier hire. The distribution
of seeds averages 24,000 packages a
day for 300 working days yer annum
jphich if paid for at the regular rate
would bring' the government a revenue
of $73,000, and ; if sent out in sjngle
packages as they would be in most
eases by . merchants seedsmen would
yield a r evenue of $220,000. 1 Muny
postmasters declare that the packages
of Beeds which are received at the post-
offices under fraud are addressed to
persons ' who are den or who have
moved away some of them ten or fif
teen years before, but that the seeds
come as regularly as the seasons. It is
the belief that not ene of a thousand
who receives the seeds cares for or uses
them and the . testimony throughout
