Tho cause of all skin diseases can bo traced to some humor or acid in
the blood; the cuticlo is always healthy where the circulation is free from
impurities. When, the blood is infected with acrid or unhealthy matter it
cannot perform its natural work of nourishing tho skin, regulating its teui
?crature nnd preserving its normal softness, pliability and healthfulness.
nstoad it irritates and inflames tho delicate fibres end tissues around tho
pores and glands nud produces some of the many forms of skin disease.
The itching and Stinging r?o often accompanying skin a'.'iections are produced
by the deposit from the blood of tho acrid humors with which it is filled,
into the sensitivo membranous llesh lying just beneath tho ourer covering,
nnd surrounding tho countless nerv?s, pores and glands. This explains why
scratching the outer skin affords no relief from tlie itching and burning.
8. S. S. cures Skin Diseases of every character by purifying the blood. It
goes down into the circulation and removes tho humors or acirls v/hich are
causing the trouble, builds up tho weak, acrid blood, and per mannnth- euro?
every variety of skin affection. Local applications can only soothe; thej
never cure because thoy do not roach tho blood. S. S. 3. goes right into the
circulation, roaches the trouble nnd cures it by removing the cause. Boo.'i

OUT OVER R. L. JAMES
Popular Favorite Is Defeated in Three Straight
Sets in Old Dominion Tennis Tournament for
Hermitage Challenge Cups?Men's
I'pFettlnp- all calculations, sending
the form players back to the infant
class, making the dope artists rewrite
their charts, yet pleasing a large and
at no time quiet gallery. Nat Thornton,
of Atlanta, one-time champion tennis
player of the South, yesterday defeated
R. L James, of Philadelphia, holder of |
one leg in the battle for permanent I
possession of the Hermitage challenge j
cup, In three straight sets, 6-1, C-2, S-6. |
Not in the eight years of the Old i
Dominion tennis tournament, now one j
of tho really big tourneys of the conn- i
try, has there been more excitement
than wag offered yesterday. James has
all along been tho popular favorite, and
his dashing style of play was calculated
to bring Thornton to grief. Jnm.a
played up to form, but it was the old
story of methodical, thoughtful and
accurate playing against a more bril?
liant but less resourceful Opponent.
Thornton literally wore James out,
though in the last set the Philadelphia
