OLD SORBS There is no better evidence of a bad condition of the blood
and unhealthy state of the system than a sore that won't heal, or
ULCERS a festering, discharging Ulcer or Abscess. There are many ways
ABCrcCCDC ky which the blood may become contaminated and poisoned. A
ADoLCiOoEO long spell of malarial fever or other debilitating sickness, the
excessive use of mercury in certain diseases, inactive kidne3's and
torpid liver, exposure and lack of nourishing food, weaken the constitution and cause
the system to become congested with impurities which are taken up by the blood, and
wharever the flesh is bruised or scratched a festering sore or dischareincr ulcer beerins.
A boil or blister, pimple or burn often develops into a frightful lookir,g sore because of
the unhealthy condition of the blood, and the place will continue to grow and spread, finally
reacning tne cones ana causing tnem to decay unless
the blood is purged and purified and the system thor
oughly cleansed of all morbid and unhealthy accumu
lations. This cannot be done with washes, salves and
soaps, which only afford temporary relief.
buch tmnes neitner make
w - -
the sj'stem any cleaner, and to depend upon them alone
is suicidal and senseless. The sore or ulcer is only a
symptom, an outlet for the poisons circulating in the
blood, and as long as it remains impure the sore will
never heal. It may scab over and appear to be getting
well, but a fresh outpour of matter from the diseased
blood starts it again, and thns it goes on, sometimes
for years, slowly sapping away the life of the patient.
The only way to get rid of these disgusting evi
dences .of impure blood is to remove the cause by
purifying the polluted blood, and nothing does this so
surely and effectively as S. S. S. It drives ont of the
circulation impurities and germs of every kind; and
under the tonic effect of this great remedy the general
health rapidly recuperates and broken-down constitu
tions are built up and strength and vigor are restored
to all parts of the system. When S. S. S. gets into the
circulation, impurities that have been clogging the
blood and causing the old sore or ulcer, are driven out
through the natural channels of the body, and the
place begins to heal, the discharge gradually ceases.

where the Wagner Itmple cf music will
surround it with that respect and sanctlty
that its subject mid treatment deserve
can It be riven properl I"
To those who Know the history of Fran
Wagner, this argument sounds with some
thing of a humorous tang. The former
wife of Hans von Btielow. who was licni
and rains:! a Catholic, and who changed
her relit Ion in order that she might se
cure .1 illvone that wcukl enable her to
marry Richard Wagner, could surel not
have such deep feeling on religious sub
jects as her words would imply.
But. .to return to "Parsifal.- The plea
that It Is a religious opera Is wrong. That
It has a religlie tone is true, but it Is a 10
mmitic mulc drama, as truly as "Faust"
deserves that title. Though not so senti
mental as "fihengrln " It eloselv resem
bles that play in tone and coloring.
But a an opera It has this one gteat dc
ft. it Is without the exaltatlcn of a great
human love. In the place of love Is placed
sensual temptation. There Is not .1 sinxle
gtiod woman presented In the whole course
f tlie opera. Pco Marguerite was a saint
in h. jv-ii compared with Kundr. whose
'l.l justification Is that she was en
chanted and did her work under a spell,
and that In tlie end she liecumes diseu
, turned aiiJ repentant.
To be brief, the storj of this drama is
oi'r that coul.l hardly be told in full In
m xcd society, and Its gravest artistic In
terest, and human interest, too. is derived
from tins er fact. But let us remember

APPKARANCH OF KLINGSOR.
F.verytlnns went well until Amfortas be
came King Then, under his Jurisdiction, a
knight named Klingsor appeared before
him and asked to be iwrmltted to Join the
order Rut Klingsor" life had been an
evil one and Tor tils personal Impurity he
was .tst out of the Grallsburg. As he
had mutilated himself so as to be free
from norldv desires his rage at being re
pulsed knew no bound. He snore to be
revng-d on the kn'ghlhood. He erected
a magic palace on the southern tlope of
the mountain. Ip his garden he placed
beautiful women to tempt the Knights ol
the Grail as thev passed by. The most
beautiful of these Kundry. a sort of fe
male Ahasuerus. or wandering Jewess.
Wagner makes her tlie woman who
laughed In the face of Christ while he was
on hi. way to Calvary, but other tradi
tions declare that she Is no other than
Hcrodias. who nimbly danced off the head
of John the Baptist ... ... .
Kur.urv ennare Amfortas with her
charms and while he Is In the embrace of
tbe b-autiful enchantress Kllngsor
snatches the spear ami wounds the King
of Grail.burg. It Is a grievous wound, for
It can never 1 cured until It is touched
b the siiear itself, and this can only be
recovered by "dor tflnc thor." or "the
guileless fool." who. in tho Wagnerian
up"ra. is Parsifal himself.
All of this occurs before the curtain
rises' and is necesary to understand the
meaning cf the story that follows. Tho
cpnlng scene shows Gumemanz. a hale
and sturdy knight of the Grail, attended
bv two esquires. Trumpets sound and
Gurneraanz tells his companions to pre
pare the bath for the King Amfortas. Just
as they go oft tbero Is a wild clangor In
the orchestra, and a horse bearing a wild
human rider. In snake-girdled garment,
dashes on the scene.
It U Kundry. who In the tlmi when the
Is off duty at KlingsorVi magic garden Is
permitted to serve the Knights of the Grail
as a faithful servant. She has Just re
turned from a wild trip to Arabia and
brings -with her an herb which she says
will cure the King. But Amfortaa. borne
down by the weight of his sin and the
pain of hi wound, tells her that a voice
from the Grail has told him that he must
await as Ids savior: "By pity enlightened,
a guileless fool: wait for him. my chosen
WHIZZ OF ARROW.
The procession moves on to the lake,
and tho whizz of an arrow Is heard. A
wounded swan flutters across the lake and
falls dying. The Parsifal motive an
nounces to appearance of the culprit,
who has ruthlessly killed one of these
animals -irr. in hese preruin- Par
-fal enters and Isjast of his skill at ha
Ing killed the Llr.j on the mg. I old
Gurnem-inz repro.i, h.s him and ' be
When asked who he is and when, e !
conus. he tells the knight that ll is :
.ible to answer, but Kundry. who I. J'
iwen listening announces that he is th
son of i.amuret. who gave liirth to him
after t-ie death of his father, who fH)

Then Parsifal recalls how when he was
a child he saw a pacant of knights in
glittering armor with gavly colored pen
nons ' lie bad fo!Iows them, and be
coming lost, had never wen his mother
or his home since that time. Kundrv tells
Mm that his mother is .bad. that his lesi
had killed her.
Then a suiklen trembiirg overcomes the
woman, and the magic motive or Kllng

Is summoning her to her work Rut
she thinks that she Is going into tho

waiting, iiuestlons him. and then walk
with him toward lb. Crallsburg.
This Is one of the most entranclns ef
f is of scenerv that Wagner ever .u
tempted. Tile two men s,.jn to l walk
ing along a nondrrfully grand and beauti
ful forest scene, finally leaving the loresi
path and entering a door amid wild rok.
Thre thev stand In a huge vaulted hall
anl as they halt the Knights of the Grail
enter through ntiothtr door ami take their
places at two lont, tables
RORNK IN ON UTTER.
Then Amfortas Is borne In on his litter.
From tlie dome of the hall comes a ihorus
of boys voices, intoning a hmn.
pure chorus Is unaccomianied b the or- j
chestra. save for a posiludlum like a
faint echo of heavenly tones. When this
is sung as It is at Rajreuth. It Is the
most exquisite musical effect In the whole
opera. It Is a perfect example of reli
gious music. It isva beautiful melody
without the sllghteij worldl tint. It
could ntver be listened to In other than
a devotional spirit, for its first notes cre
ate such a sentiment.
The voice of Titure! now demands that
Amfortas uncover the Holy Grail, that the
knights may be sunctlHed and strengtn
enel by its sight. At first. Amfortas re-
IUS.S iiecHU-e of his sins ami because the
sight of it glvvs him renewed vitality, and
with his terrible wound he longs for death
to relieve him of his sufferings.
At last Tlturel prevails and in the dark
ened hall Amfortas raises the Grail and
swings it from side to side Then the ves
sel is seru to glow with a purple luster.
The whole act Is accompanied b music of
Gurnemanz asks Paflfal to remain to

rails to reply, anil Gumemanz. disappoint

So k)es the flrst act.
At the time that "Parsifal" was com
posed it was Imperative to have a ballet
somewhere along the second act. so that
the juting nobility would lie attracted by
the romping, skipping, attitudinizing of a
bevy cf mote or less beautiful glrl. But
Wagner had curd out against this as a
larltr.m. No ballet should ever hurt
the continuity and purpose of his operas.
SOLUTION OF UALLET IDEA.
And so the s?cond act of "Parsifal"
must be conshieted. not as a comoromise
with the ballet Idea, but as his solution
for It. For. while it Is not In form cr
music the style of the ballet, its appeal
to the sense s far more direct, and its use
of the attractive charms of women to give
a stimulation to the scene is utte of the
most powerful that has ever been put
upon the stage.

Parsifal leaps from a wall into tie . idst
of this, and as he does so a number of
beautiful damseN in the lightest attire
ruh on the stage and bewail the loss of
thMr ilaymate.. the aroresald knights.
Then they behold ParirH: ami determine
to try their blandishments on htm. They
flirt with him. they disappear in the ar
bor and return attired in tlowers and sek
to tempt him. Parsifal Is at flrst childish
Rut lMrsifal remains unyielding and
about to depart about his business when
the voice of Kundrv Is heard calllntr
"Parsifal, remain" The guls depatt with
a backward fling at the guileless fool and
leave him at Kundrv "s merc.
Kundry Is an artist She begin" by
seeking to secure Parsifal's confidence.
She tells him of his mother, of bis child
hood, and at last, when the man sinks
at her foot In grief, she bends over him
to give him the lat kiss of a mother
and the first kiss of love. This kiss
makes Parsifal clairvoyant
He understands the temptation to which
Amrortas fell; he becomes "by pity en
lightened." He pushes Kundry angrily
away. Her cries bring Kllngsor on the
scene, and from the castle wall he hurls
the sacred spear at Parlfal.

There is only one course to pursue for those whose lives are being overshadowed
bv tho penalties or nature, and tills .s by reporting to nodical science through :i
skilled Pelvic specialist. Tlie young mail lalioring In hope that he is not in :i serious
condition from his boyhood folly and neglects to Iwve hitnvcir rescued Is committing
a worse des?d In allowing himself to follow a path that leads to destruction. If hn is
still practicing Ihe error that his weakened system cannot resist ho should by all

tinuance, making the mind and body sound and healthy :,nd the faculties e-omplete.
My Pelvic metheKl Is a thorough and scientific cours-i of treatment which acts at
once upon the nerve forces, stopping the drains, emissions, all tho bad effects of indis ,
cretion and replacing the worn-out and run-down tissues. It increases the wciglifTpA
with sound, healthy flesh and muscles that give strength and fill the bruin and nerves 'JJ
with fresh vitality, building up the entire system and transforming the sufferer Into 11
tvpe of perfect manhood Of the many "weaklings" who come to me with sunken
eyes, weight greatly reduced from loss of flesh and muscle, presenting the appearand
of a man with one foot In the grave. I rind no trouble in curing tlicni. and when they
leave my care they go on their Journey of life full of hopes for a bright future.
