The fact that S. S. S. is a purely vegetable preparation, containing not

points in its favor during its forty years of existence. It is recognized
everywhere not only as the best of all blood purifiers, but the one medicine

mem'ber of the family. Next in imoortance to removing the cause of any
disease is the condition in which the'system is left aster a course of medical

Wounds, Bruises and Burns.
By applying an antiseptic dressing
to wounds. bruises, burns and like in
juries before inflammation sets in, they
may be healed without maturation and
in about one-third the time required by
the old treatment. This is the great
est discovery and triumph of modern
surgery. Chamberlain's Pain Balm,
acts on this same principle. It is an
antiseptic and when applied to such in
juries, causes them to heal very quick

THE BEAUTIFUL BUT VENOMOUS
Beneath the Plenresin Exterior of
This Brilliant Fnzigis Lurkm a
Vicious Poison That Is Fatal to the
Lives of Men and Cattle.
In the dark shade of lofty pine trees
and under spreading oaks in more
open woods a mushroom is found so
remarkable in color and graceful in
form that its beauty has excited ad
miration for hundreds of years. The
color of its bright orange cap arid its
chalk white stem and gills is height
ened by the surrounding darkness of
the woods and presents a contrast as
singular as it is beautiful.
But beneath the pleasing exterior of
this brilliant fungus a poison lurks so
fatal to the lives of men and cattle
that it is called the deadly amanita,
and in different countries mothers cau
tion their children to beware of its
Amanita muscaria, the deadly, or
fly, amanita, is completely incased in
a fleece-like covering during the early
stages of its growth, which makes it
decidedly egg shaped in form. As
the stem lengthens this covering either
adheres in loose patches to the top of
the cap or it slips away and forms a
sheathing. to the cup at the base of the
Another inner covering breaks away

room exlpands and forms a conspicuous
collar about the upper part of the
stem. The bulbous base of the stem
and these ruptured, fleecy coverings
are pronounced characteristics which
are most helpful in distinguishing this
dangerous fungus from the other vare
ties of mushrooms.
It is strong, free from pests and
grows to a height from four to sixteen
inches. In color the cap is sometimes
bright scarlet, again orange or yellow
or reddish in the center and light yel
low toward the edges, and it has no
ticeable wartlike patches spread over
the top. On old plants the color fades
out, and late in the season particularly
forms of the deadly amanita are found
which are almost white. The stem is
easily separated from the cup at its
This mushroom is more generally
known than any of the other poison
ous species. It has long been used as
a fly poison in Europe, and it takes its
name, muscaria, from the Latin word
for a fly. Its poisonous effect upon hu
man beings begins a few hours after
it has been eaten. The symptoms are
nausea and faintness, with cold per
spiration and stupor, followed in se
vere cases by death from a gradual
weakening of the heart.
A. strong emetic should be given at
once, and in all cases a physician
should be called. Sulphate of atropin
Is the only known chemical antidote
for this poison, and to save.the patient
it must be promptly administered by
The poison may also be absorbed
through the pores of the skin, and bad
cases of poisoning have been produced
by simply holding an amanita in the
closed hand or breathing its exhala
tions in a warm room.
If poisonous mushrooms are packed
in the same box with edible ones the
virus from the poisonous fungi is ab
sorbed by the harmless mushrooms,
and they become as dangerous to eat
as the original offenders.
In certain countries the deadly ama
nita seems to lose some of its virulen
cy, and in the north of Russia and
parts of northeastern Asiia it is used in
the same manner as wine for its in
toxicating effects. The mushrooms are
gathered in hot weather and are hung
up in the air to dry or they are some
times picked fresh and put into soup
or sauces. A small amount swallowed
whole is enough to produce a day's in
Another fatally dangerous member
of the amanita family is the death
cup (Amanita phalloides), a beautiful
mushroom which also grows in the
woods, especially in pine forests. It is
not so highly colored as the deadly
amanita, and, unlike that mushroom,
it has a smooth, satiny cap. It is usu
ally white or straw colored, but speci
mens are found which are light brown,
green, yellow and spotted. The stem
is white and nearly smooth, and the
cup at the base of the stem is invaria
The death cup is even more poison
ous than the deadly amanita and
stands firs,t among all noxious fungi
for its poisonous qualities. It grows
in the east.rn and middle states and
in particularly large quantities near
the city of Washington.
Another amanita (Amanita vernus),
found in~ the woods in spring, is also
very poisonous and may be told by
its color, which is a creamy white
Although it is said that the amanitas
are the only mushrooms which have
proved fatal to human life, there are
other varieties afhich cause such acute
distress that it is wvell to guard against
The boleti, for instance, have several
varieties which are nonedible, although
many kinds, on the other hand, make
delicious food. The boleti are distin
guished by a sponge-like surface of
pores instead of gills beneath the cap.
The harmful varieties are bitter, as a
rule, and change color to blue or red
when cut or broken. The edible varie

Beaa the The Kind YOU Have Always Bought
A BRAKE ON SUCCESS.
The Habit of Making Excuses Will
Retard Any Man's Career.
Good excuses have kept back many
a man from realizing a prosperous Ca
reer. Once you get the excuse making
habit formed you might as well have a
ball and chain attached to your neck
so far as your prosipects for rising to
the top are concerned.
There are two kinds of excuses which
keep a clerk in the business world oc
cupying a clerk's position when he is
capable (has it in him) to be something
better if he only would. The first class
of excuses are the ones he makes to
himself. These are often as enervat

A clerk sees a piece eg work which
he knows ought to be done today. He
knows that the best interests of the
business require that this work should
nQt be put off until tomorrow. But he
has not yet reached a point where he
realizes that his employer's interests
are Identical with his own, and per
haps he was out late last night and
feels a lack of ambition today. So he
excuses himself from doing the work
on the ground that "the boss" didn't
tell him to do it today. After soothing
his conscience with this specious men

and he then repeats his stereotyped
excuse that he wasn't "told" to do it
For such a one the gateway to success
is always barred.
This brings us to the second kind of
excuse, that made to one's employer.
Of the two this latter 'ind of excuse is
the less injurious to the clerk's chance
of advancement. When he excuses
himself from doing obviously impor
tant work lie instills into his own
mind a subtle mental poison, a don't

backbone, lack of concentration, lack of
continuity and application. He Weak

on and on binding the fetters which
will forever hold him back from any

The weight of air has often been
tested by compressing it in receptacles
by the air pump. That it really has
weight when so compressed is shown
by the fact that the weight of the ves
sels is increased slightly by filling
them with compressed air and that
such vessels become specifically "light
er" as soon as the air contained in
them is exhausted. Many elaborate
experiments on the weight of air have
proved that the cubic foot weighs 536
grains, or something less than one and
a quarter ounces. The above expern

to be made at the surface of the earth

The Zoroastrian faith acknowledges
Ormazd, Ahura Mazda, "Lord Wis

archangels, Amesha Spenta, and a
company of angels, Yazata, about him
to rule and guide the world. The in
fernal host of fiends and archfiends
who war against heaven and strive to
destroy thefuture life of man is led by
Anra Mainyu, the evil spirit. In dis
cussing with these Zoroastrians the
subject of the origin of evil I found
that they look upon the supreme being,
Ahura Mazda, as comprising within
himself the two powers of good and
evil-namely, Spenta Mainyu, the holy
spirit, and Anra Mainy, the evil spir
it. This is similar to the monotheistic
view held by the Parsis of India in
oppositionL to the statement frequently
made that Zoroastrianism is pure dual

taught them since early times, and this
doctrine is connected with the belief
that there will come a saviour or mes

robbed of all comfort, according to his
letter, which says: "For~20 years I had
chronic liver complaint, which led to
such a severe case of jaundice that even
my finger nails turned yellow; when
my doctor prescribed Electric Bitters;
which cured me and have kept me well
for eleven years." Sure cure for Bil
iousness, Neuralgia, Weakness and all

Why Cut Glass Breaks.
Cut glass makers explain why it is
that there are frequent reports of cut
glass suddenly breaking or crumbling
on a table, shelf or sideboard in homes
and elsewhere, although the glass was
not in use. They assert that whenever
'the tone of any .,ut glass article comes
into contact with its responsive chord
the life of the glass will go with the
tone, by which it is affected, and the
glass collapses or crumbles. It is on
record a famous opera singer could
break cut glassware by reaching high
C in her singing. .Several tests were
made in New York and Paris, and by
he singing she broke several pieces of
cut glassware. The tone of a violin if
attned so as to be in true accord with
cut glass will destroy it.
Hebrews. and the Sabbath.
There is not, and there never was in
tended to be, any such feeling of Puri
tanism or of Calvinism with regard to
our day of rest as there is connected
with the Lord's day of our, neighbors.
The Jewish Sabbath was to be a de
light, and we read that in the mediaeval
ghetto dancing, among other recrea
tions, was common on that day. There
is nothing contrary to the spirit Of
Judaism in the playing of games or in
dulgence in any form of light recrea
tion on Saturday so long as it is com
bined with a due regard for the sacred
claims of divine worship. -Jewish
