It is as impossible to conquer the king of
diseases-Contagious Blood Poison-with Mer
cury and Potash as it would be to copnquer the -
king of the forest in a hand-to-hand encounter,
as thousands who have had their health ruined'
and lives blighted through the use of these min- I
erals will testify. They took the treatment faith- ...
fully, only to End when it was left off, the dis- -.
ease returned with more power, combined with- -
the awful effects of these minerals, such as mercurial rhetumatism, necros8
of the bones, salivation, infammation of the stomrach and bowels, etc.
When the virus of Contagious Blood Poison enters the blood it quickly con
taminates every drop of that vital fluid, and every muscle, nerve, tissue and
bone becomes affected, and soon the foul symptoms of sore mouth and throat,
copper-colored blotches, falling hiair and eyebrows, swollen glands, sores,
etc., make their appearance. Mercury and Potash can only cover up these
evidences for awhile; they cannot cure the disease. S. S. S. has for many
years 'been recognized as a specific for Contagious Blood Poison-a perfect
atidote for the deadly virus that is so far-reaching in its effects on the sys
tem.S. S S.does not hide or mask the disease, but so thoroughly and
S. S. S. while eradicating the poison of the disease
will drive out any effects of harmful mineral treat
ment. A reward of $1,ooo.oo is offered for proof
that S. S. S. contains a mineral ingredient of any

Acts were massed in the reigns 0;

which made it illegal for any tailo1

They Are, sur One of Them, the
Soul of Cenerosity.
When a New York policeman recent
ly borrowed jewelry of a pawnbroker
on his beat to wear to a "party," the
story led to much comment. In the
opinion of the pawnbroker most of the
gossip was entirely uncalled for.
"People are making a tremendous
fuss about that little deal," he said.
"They seem to think it one of the won
ders of the age for a pawnbroker to
lend anything unless he gets big inter
est on it. Pawnbrokers'are ,really the
soul of generosity. I make loans every
week. Of course I don't let things out
indiscriminately. A fellow that can
touch me for the use of an umbrella or
a diamond ring for thenight has to be
pretty well known as a square chap
who is not going to run off with the*4
goods. There are a number of such
men around in this part of town, and
when they stand in need of some spe
cial convenience that .I happen to be
able to supply to them from my stock
of unclaimed pledges I am glad to ac- 4
commodate them. The stuff always
comes back safe, accompanied by, a
little tip, so I don't lose anything by
trusting my friends.

OUR INAUGURAL OATH.

en by Any Ruler.
The oath of office taken by the in
coming president of the United States
Is the shCrtest and the simplest re
quired of any ruler on earth. It is pre
scribed by the constitution and is as
"I CX rolemnly swear (or affirm) that
I will faithfully execute the office of
president of. the United States, and, to
the best of my ability, protect, preserve
and defend the constitution of the Unit
This oath is slowly repeated by the
president elect after the chief justice
of the supreme court, In the presence of
the public .upon a platform erected in
front of the main door on the eastern
side of the capitol. WhIle the oath is
being repeated the president elect and
the chief justice face each other and
hold iwith their right hands between
them a Bible furnished by some person
Interested or especially procured for
the occasion, which becomes the prop
erty of the president after it has been
appropriately inscribed and sealed by
the chief clerk of the supreme court.
At the close of the oath the president
elect bows his head and kisses the open
page of the book, and It has been cus
tomary for him or for his wife or a
friend to- select some appropriate pas
sage at which the book shall be opened
and the verse upon which he shall press
his lips. Sometimes, when those inter
ested forget or neglect to choose a pas
sage, the Bible Is opened at random,

always careful to note and mark the

A well known traveling man who vis

heard druggists inquire of customers
who asked for a cough medicine,wheth
er it was wanted for~ a child or for an
adult, and if for a child they almost in
variably recommended Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. The reason for this
is that they know there is no danger
from it and that it always cuues. There
is not the least danger in giving it, and
for coughs, colds and croup it is unsur
