Attorney at Moline, III., Convinced By Oil of Com- pound There is nothing that will convince a lawyer except evidence. Now, here is some rather startling evidence of a simple home cure for eczema which convinced one lawyer. F. C. Entriken, attorney at Moline, 111. He tells how oil of wintergreen compound mixed with thymoul and glycerine, as in D.D.D. Prescription, cured him in thirty days after thirty- two years of suffering. "For 33 writes Attorney En- triken, Iwas troubled with eczema, scabs all over my face, body and head. I could run a hair brush over my body and the floor would be cov- ered with scales enough to fill a bas- ket. I tried in- ternal medicine, without result. "Just a month ago I was induced to try u.u.b, Prescription. itcti was relieved instantly; so I continu- ed. It is just a month now and I am completely cured. I have not a particle of itch and the scales have dropped off. "I can only say again, CURE DIS- COVERED. I am now starting all eczema sufferers on the right track."
