Sores and Ulcers never become chronic
unless the blood is in poor condition -is
sluggish, weak and unable to throw off
the poisons that accumulate in it. The
system must be relieved of the unhealthy
matter through the sore, and great danger
to life would follow should it heal before
the blood has been made pure and healthy
and all impurities eliminated from the sys
tem. S.S.S. begins the cure by first cleans
ing and invigorating the blood, building
up the general health and removing from
the system A CONSTANT DRAM
ffetematter. UPON THE SySM .
When this has been accomplished the dis
zharge gradually ceases, and the sore or
acerheals. Itis thetendency of these old
indolent sores to grow worse and worse,
and eventually to destroy the bones. Local
applications, while soothing and to some
xtent alleviate pain, cannot reach the seat
>f the trouble. S. S. S. does, and no matter
ow apparently hopeless your condition,
een though your constitution has broken
lown, it will bring relief when nothing
se can. It supplies the rich, pure blood
ecessary to heal the sore -and nourish
Lhe debilitated, diseased body.

A Judacial Retort.
Sir William Meredith, chief justice of
Ontaric, Canada, was formerly a very
prominent politician as well as a fa
mous lawyer. He was especially noted
for his success as prosecuting attor
ney, and few criminals escaped convic
tion when he addressed the jury.
During one of his political campaigns
he was speaking at a meeting in the
city of London, his native town. The
audience was turbulent and he was
frequently interlupted. Finally a voice
from the,gallery cut into one of his
finer flights with a sarcastic "Oh, go
and get your hair cut!"
Sir William, who wore his hair
somewhat longer than is usual. was
stopped by a burst of laughter. But
as soona as he was able to make him
self heard he turned the laugh and won
the audience by this reply: "My friend,
if I'm not mistaken, ,I've had your
hair cut before this!"-New York Com
The direct cause of fainting is a di
minisbed circulation of blood through
the brain. To revive a person who has
fainted It is necessary, therefore, to al
ter this condition as quickly as possi
ble. In order to do this the individual
should be laid quite flat, the head on a
level with the body, so that the feebly
acting heart will not have to propel the
blood upward. The neck and chest
should be exposed, fresh air admitted
freely, water sprinkled on the face and
stimulating vapors, such as ammonia,
held at intervals to the nostrils. When
there is difficulty in restoring anima
tion, friction over the region of the
heart with the hand or a rough cloth
should be applied vigorously.

was applied to as a man of ex

on dying called his family
around him and said that on his
tombstone he wished to have en- 3
graved, "Here lies an honest
lawyer." Some one suggested
that people would not know
whose the tombstone was.
"But," said the dying man, 'they
will. Every one will say, 'Why
that's strange!" An English
man told it in this way: A very
clever barrister was dying. He
was very clever indeed. His
family were devoted to him and
asked him what his last wishes
were. Now, I've forgotten what
the lawyer's name was, but that
doesn't make any difference with
the story. He was very clever
