an edict, dated yesterday, practically reit

Sentence of death Is sunpcnded on those

Owing to the lateness of the hour nt which
the translation was made the Ministers did

The Ministers have considered the plans
for a legation settlement, with fortifica

You will find that the Increase in deaths

total of 3,305 In 1900.

surprise many, but when you know that

This is the time of year when rheumatic sufferers lay in their
Winter supplyof plasters, salves and pills to be prepared in time for the
coming of their old enemy, Rheumatism. Experience has taught them
that the most they can expect from this method of treatment is partial
relief. By rubbing, steaming and.a liberal use of plasters they hope to
hold the disease in check until the coming of warm weather; but Summer
time does not always bring the longed for relief, for the blood becomes
so charged with the acid poisons, and the joints, muscles and tissues of the
body so thoroughly saturated with the hot, burning fluid, that attacks be
come more frequent and the unfortunate sufferer is never entirely free
from pain. Finally the muscles contract; the joints swell and stiffen, and
the helpless, discourged victim of this torturing disease, even with the aid
of crutch or stick, finds walking difficult and painful.
Rheumatism is a deep-seated, dangerous disease, caused by the
gradual absorption into the blood of refuse matter that should have been
carried out of the system through the proper channels. These nmsnns
soon destroy the purity and life of the blood, and as it circulates through the body the acid particles that are thrown off

Yours truly, 8. O. LA88ITEB,
I was terribly afflicted with Rheuma

sickness tried the skill of many good
physicians, all of whom pronounced my
case hopeless. I was for a year in suoh a
helpless condition that I was unable to
dress or feed myself. I had filled at dif

gested by friends, none of them giving
me any relief. I finally decided to include
S. S. 8. in my ll:t snd took the first dose

taking two bottles I fcund to much relief
X was able to rsUnquish the use of one
