Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
relieves all inflammation of the mucous
membranes lining the stomach, protects the
nerves, and cures bad breath, sour risings, a
sense of fullness after eating, indigestion,

Those who have ever felt its keen, cutting pains, or witnessed the intense
suffering of others, know that Rheumatism is torture, and that it is right
ly called "The King of Pain."
All do notsuffer alike. Some are suddenly seized with the most excrucia
ting pains, and it seems every muscle and joint in the body was being torn
asunder. Others feel only occasional slight pains for weeks or months, when
a sudden change in the weather or exposure to damp, chilly winds or night
air brings on a fierce attack, lasting for days perhaps, and leaving the pa
tient with a weakened constitution or crippled and deformed for all time.
An acid, polluted condition of the blood is the cause of every form and
variety of Rheumatism, Muscular, Articular, Acute, Chronic, Inflammatory
and Sciatic, and the blood must be purged and purified before there is an
end to your aches and pains. External applications, the use of liniments and
plasters, do much toward temporary relief, but such treatment does not reach
the real cause orcleanse the diseased blood ; but S. S. S., the greatest of all
blood purifiers and tonics, does cure Rheumatism by antidoting and neutraliz
ing the poisonous acids and building up the weak and sluggish blood.* It is
safe and reliable in all forms of Rheumatism. Itmakes
the old acid blood rich, and the pain-tortured mus
cles and joints are relieved, the shattered nerves are
made strong, and the entire system is invigorated and
toned up by the use of this great vegetable remedy.
If you have Rheumatism, write us, and our physicians will furnish with
out charge any information desired, and we will mail free our book on
Rhematism. TNE SWIFT SPECIIC CO.. ATLANTA, CA.

FAMOUS GEORGIAN'S CHOICE
Historian Thomas Watson Name'
His Candidate For President.
Thomas E. Watson, the historian,
1 who represented a Georgia district it
congress, but has retired to private
life, in an open letter sets forth rea
sons why, if in public life, he would
support Congressman William Ran
dolph Hearst for the presidency. Mr.
Watson's letter follows:
"Were I in polities I should heartily
approve and support the candidacy 01
William R. Hearst because he has for
many years been exerting all the pow
er of his millions and his mental en
ergies in favor of the principles of Jef
"I would support Mr. Hearst because
he is a young leader inspired by the
old spirit of equal rights to all and
special privileges to none, because he
favors the rights of the many rather
than the greed of the few, because he
does not represent sectionalism of any
sort, but stands for the common people
of the entire republic. I would suppor
him because he is young enough t<
cherish a generous enthusiasm of the
public good at the same time that hi
has demonstrated a capacity to succeed
in the most trying affairs of practical
"I would support him because he
wears no man's collar and because he
is not the craven tool of any ring, syn
dicate, corporation, trust or interest.
"I would support him because he has
brains enough to realize what this pub
lic needs and pluck enough to do battle
for his convictions.
"A Democrat who knows what De
mocracy is and is loyal enough to stand
by it in this day of decadence, I would
give him the aid of my entire strength
believing that I would thus be doing
the highest public service."
In commenting on the above utter
ance the Atlanta News says in the
same issue: "The I-Ion. Thomas E.
Watson is no longer a politician. NC
temptation of office, no plea of the
public, has been sufficient to draw hin
from his brilliant and honorable re
tirement to engage In the personal am
bitions of politics. He has made fame
He has achieved fortune by his brains
and his labor, and he is today by gen
eral consent looked upon as without a
superior among the thinkers and pa
triots of the state. But whether in re
tirement or in active service, Thomas
Watson is still the great tribune of the
common people of Georgia. They trus1
him and follow him as they do no oth
er man. And Tom Watson, tb 3 philos
opher, the scholar in politics, the pa
triot in retirement, viewing all meas
ures and all men from the tranquillity
of unselfishness and repose, sends
through the News a message to the
people of Georgia today which rings
like a bugle call. It is the voice of the
real tribune of the people calling the
people to their opportunity.
"Tom Watson's letter is the most nota
ble and significant utterance which the
presidential campaign has so fai
evoked. It is the highest possible yin
dication of the contention of the News
that Hearst is the man of the people
and the choice of the people. It not
remains to see that the people havE
A COMIC TRAGEDY.
The Audience Was Ready, but thE
Show Was Tangled UP.
John Banvard, who afterward be
came famous as the painter of a grea
panorama of Mississippi scenery, se
out in his boyhood, in the early thir
ties, to travel down the "Great Water'
in a flatboat with a number of compan
ions. They built their boat on the Wa
bash and were to pay their way hI
exhibiting dioramic views in the cabi
at landings. Unfortunately the can
delights were not then shininh
through the sycamores along the Wa
bash, and before the adventurers reach
ed a settled region they ran out of pro
visions. In the woods they could fini
nothing but papaws, luscious at first
but quickly cloying.

year-old Banvard, we had nothinl

THE LOVING CUP.
Its Origin Dates From the Assassina
tion of King Edward.
The remote origin of the loving cup
dates from the story of the assassina
tion of Edward, king and martyr, who
was stabbed in the back while drink
ing. It had been usual at feasts to
pass round a large cup, which each, as
he rose to drink, lifted with both'
hands, exposing his body to attack.
This custom was altered, so that when
one stood up to drink he who sat next
became his "pledge" and also rose,
drawn sword in hand, to protect him.
This practice in a modified form con
tinued long after changed conditions
of society had ceased to need it and
was the origin of our custom of drink
ing healths and particularly of the
ceremonial, preserved in almost Its
primitive form, of passing round the
loving cup, when, as each person rises
and takes the cup in his hand to drink,
the guest next to him also rises and
grasps the second handle.
Some authorities ascribe its origin
to Margaret, consort of Malcolm, king
of Scotland, and others to Henry of
Marriage In the Isles of Greece.
In Kaso, one of the most southern
Islands of Greece, the parents upon
both sidetake upon themselves all the
responsibilities of courtship and mar
riage. Courtship, as we understand it,
is not in any way permitted to the be
trothed couple. No moonlight walks or
tete-a-tetes are allowed. Such a course
would be deemed highly reprehensible,
and all wooing, if there be any, must
take place in the presence of the eld
ers. But there is no great time for re
pining at these decrees of custom, for
the marriage follows the offer as
quickly as may be.
"Mammy." said Pickaninny Jim,
"what does ghos'es want to come back

"Dat's a foolish question. Dey kin go
