AD OD DINVITES DISEASE
Every part of the body is dependent"on the blood for nourishment and
strength, and when from any cause this vital stream of life becomes impov
erished or run-down, it invites disease to enter. No one can be well when the
blood is impure; they lack the energy that is natural with health, the com
plexion becomes paleand sallow, the vital energies are at a low ebb, and they
suffer from a general broken-down condition of health. The system is weak
ened and unable to resist the diseases and disorders that are constantly assail
ing it. The Liver and Kidneys, failing to receive the proper stimulation and
nourishment from the blbod, grow inactive and dull, and the waste matters
and bodily impurities that should pass off through these channels of nature
are left in the system to pioduce Rheumatism. Catarrh. Sores and Ulcers,
Skin Diseases or some other blood disorder. When the blood is in this weak
ened and diseased condition it should be treated with a remedy that is not
only thorough, but gentle in its action. S. S. S., a purely vegetable remedy,
made of roots, herbs and barks, is just what is needed. It not only cleanses
the blood of all impurities and poisons. and enriches and strengthens it, but
gently builds up the entire system by its fine
tonic effect. S. S. S. reinvigorates every mem
. ber of the body, gives tone and vigor to the blood,
and as it goes to the different parts, carries ro
Sbust health and strength. S. S- S. acts more
PURELY VEGETABLE. promptly and gives better results than any other
medicine. It cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores
and Ulcers, Skin Diseases and all other blood disorders, and cures them per
manently. Our Medical Department will be glad to give advice without
charge to all suffering with blood or skin diseases. Address

Italians in the Cotton States.
Southern planters have a prob
lem all their own. There are no~
unions, no strikes, no violence;
but the negro tenant silently ties
up his bundle of clothes and dis
appears whenever he so elects,
regardless of crop condition and
obligation to his employer.There
has been an idea, inherited from
the past, that only the negro
could raise cotton. That idea is,
losing its force,and cotton plant
ers are. investigating, looking
around for a class of laborers
suited to conditions in theSouth.
The indications are that sys
tematic efforts will be made to
bring Italian farmers to the cot
ton lands of the South.
One large company in South
ern Arkansas has upon its plan
tations one hundred and sixty
Italian families who are success
ful and contented.
The Birmingham News an
nounces that 50.000 acres of
land in Alabama have been pur
chased by a company "with the
avowed purpose of setting Italian
peasants upon the tract." Last
summer one of the largestplant
ers in Mississippi, Mr. Charles
Scott, visited Europe to satisfy
himself as to Italian and other
foreigh laborers. His conclusions
are altogether in favor of the
Italian farmers as desirable ten
Mr Scott's views have been
fully set forth 'in the daily pa
pers. He has arranged to place
Italians on soMle of his land. and
arges others to do so.
,In 1900 there were in the cot
ton States,, excluding Lousiana,
nearly ten thousand p e r s o n s.
Since 1900 Italian immigration
has greatly increased.
The pertinent question now is
this: Are Protestant churches
going to concede this field
to the Roman Catholic church?
That church is always alert and
stute. It is preparing to take
care of the situation. Itinerant
priests are sent out and little
chapels built. Wherever a few
Italian families locate they are
soon reached by a priest speak
ing their own language.
Mr. Scott says of the Italian
farmers: "These men are al
ready good farmers, and on the
whole have the right material in
them for the making of good cit
izens. This, of course. will be
later on, after they have lived
here long enough to become
thoroughly acquainted with our
customs and institutions and
thoroughly identified with Amer
What part shall the church
take in forming these citizens?
Home Missions is the livest sub
ject before the church. Each
section of the country has its pe
culiar problems in home mission
work. The church in the cotton
States should at once 'take up:
the work of evangelizing Italian

that gives promise of wider ser
vice and broader influence than
the Woman's Home Mission So
ciety of the M. E. church South.
The original purpose of its or
ganization was the building of
parsonages on our frontier, but
other phases of work have been
added: and in eighteen years the
society has made for itself a very
distinct plan in the thought and
purpose of the church.
A very important factor in the
work of the Woman's Home Mis
sion Society are its educational
institutions, 'and it now owns
school property which repre
sents $79.000. The schools have
been planted in sections where
the broadest opportunities have
been offered. We have endeav
ored to locate just where the
debt to humanity seemed great
est, especially in mountain sec
tions, and among foreigners who
come to us bringing debased
forms of religion if they bring
any at all. *
We can now speak only of the
work of t be society in behalf of
the Japanese-a people who
come from a small country
which lies otY the eastern coast
of Asia-and is often called the
"Empire Island" on account of
its consisting of an Archipelago
of some 4,000 islands-a country
that is shaped like the rising
moon, and named for the rising
sun: a wonderful nation, which
less than fifty years ago, with
the welcome she gave to foreign
ideas emerged from the national
seclusion and has since become
the cynosur-e of nations. These
people come to us as they say.
" Believing dhat America is the
gate to all good."
Work was opened up by the
Women's Home Mission Society
on the Pacifie coast. Among the
Japanese and Chinese, in 1897,
since ten nearly one thousand
Jpanese have been under ia
struction in the schools-night
schoos and Bible cjgsses of the
society. Two Japanese churches
have also been organized, one at
Alamedo, the other at San
Francisco, to which the Japanese
contribute liberally, as they are
ale. They show an -earnest
reerent disposition to acquire
and master our language, that
Ithey may become better men,
Iand oc~upy better positions. Dr.

students for five years, says

Salt, the Civilizer.
The use of salt as a necessary sup
plement to diet has had much influence
in shaping the civilization and explora
tion of the world. It is most prooable
that the oldest trade routes were cre
ted for the salt traffic, as salt and
incense formed the chief necessaries
f the ancient days. This was certain
ly the case with the caravan routes in
Libya and the Sahara, while the mines
of. north India were the center of a
large trade before the time of Alexan
Another interesting fact is that salt
has played .a considerable part in the
distribution of man. When It became
absolutely necessary to him, as it did
at an early stage of his development,
he was forced to migrate to places
where it could be obtained. This
brought him to the seashore, where he
gained his ideas of maritime commerce.
Lastly, the preservative effects of salt
on flesh food made long 'oceanic voy
ages possible and thus opened up the
world to commerce and civilization.

How Cowards Were Punished.
Many of the devices by which mili

strained such offenders to sit for three
days in the public forum dressed in
the garments of women. Many a Spar

such a man, if he escaped his* mother,
was debarred not only from public of
