( The expectant mother If she hasn't j ( heard of this splendid embrocation is [probably not reading the papers to much extent. And If she does It Is a Chappy thought to send hubby to the drug 1 store. i "Mother's Friend" is* applied externally; over the abdominal muscles. It is a gentle, soothing lubricant, pene- · trates to the fine network of nerves i beneath the skin and has a marked tendency to relieve the muscular strain · to which these broad, flat abdominal k muscles arc subjected. The cordu, ten dona and ligaments are thus permitted t '· pt r etch without the corresponding surfac strain so oftrti involved during the pcrio , ' t f fxppctatfon. And particularly to youn mothers is this remedial application o inestimable value since in thus keepin * he muscles firm but pliant It enable th^m to go through the ordeal wlthou laceration of the epidermis often the cas wh«m fblfl pentle attention is neglected. . "Mother's Friend" is highly recom mended by a host of women. Writ ·Bradfipld Regulator Co . 408 Lamar BMg i 'Atlanta, Ga., and we will send you a val V^uable little boob to expectant mothers.

No. 4, Box ,55, Holland, Mich -- '·My child's trouble began by getting red and sore around her neck, and her face, behind her ears, under her arms, and different parts of her body were affected. The eczema appeared in a rash first.. It was wet and looked as If It was sweaty. It seemed to itch and burn so that she could not sleep or rest It got so bad at last that l»- hind her ears was one crust or sore so that I had to cub her hair. There was a hard crust covering- her neck. ' She could not have her clothes buttoned at all. I could hardly change her clothes. It caused an awful disfigurement for the time. She would cry when I had to wash her. "We had her treated for some time but without success. The trouble had lasted about four weeks when wo began to use Cutictira Soap and Ointment. I had not used them more than three days when I could see she was getting better. I got one cato of Cuticura Soap and one bo* of Cuticura Ointment and I had not used more than half of what I bought when she was all cured." (Signed) Mrs. G. C.
