rain accompanied by lightning, thun

this towvn has ever experienced.

was knocked down, but fell outside
the house. His two children were
covered up by the debris. As soon

and'rescued them. A table had held
the timbers up sufficiently to save the
children's lives and neither of them
was hurt. It was a narrow escape

usually sits. The force of the elec

only damage done was the demolish

Delays are Dangerous.
There are those who are morbidly
anxious about their health, watching
every syliptoni and <losing them
selves on the siigLtest provocation.
There are others who never give the
matter a thought, but perinit real
syiniptoms to 1:11se into the certain
ties of disease. Between these two
extreies the wise man steers--nev
er unduly anxious, and yet not per
mittinug genuine sym ptoius to develop.
He knows that delays are dangerous,
and he knows, inoreover, that tihe
imetlicine niost likely to be effective is
that which goes straight to the seats
of disease, and tones up the digestive
organs, strenglthens the system and
purifies the blood. He takes a few
doses of S. S. S., and soon finds that
all the symptols have disappeared,
and thlat he is in aI better condition
than ever. The great vegetable rem
