How To Get Relief
Scientists Agree That the Cause
Is Due to Waikte Products
In the Blood.
The blood is the rpeans by which all tissues,
muscles, iganents and flesh of the body are
directly or indirectly nourished. It is also
thru the blood stream that worn-out tissues
and waste products are cast out of the -Istem.i
When waste products accumulate, they arc
a, menace to life. They causc a lowered
vitality, many skin disorders and rheuma
tism. Genuinc relief from the agonies of
rheumatism can he had only by correcting
the basic trouble--waste prot/irts.
Thousands :nd thousands of men and
Women duroing the past 50 years have cleared
their bloo of was' products with S. S. S.
It is the idial remied/ for rheumatism, be
cause it removes ih, poisonous waste matter
which is causing the trouble. There are ne
ba(l after eficets and the result is wonderful.

Young, a farnier iho lives between
Olanta antI iake City, the safe and
contents having sulidily dIisappeared
about August 16. R.-presentatives of
the Burns Detective Agency, of At
lanta, operating under L. P. Whitfield, I
imale the arrest vith the assistance
of Geo. Hatehell, a local oflicer.
This miioirning upo the arrival of
Mi. Whitfield from Atlanta, a full con
fession of the robbery was made by
A. P. Truluck, who stated that he and
his brother, J. Ii. Truluck, assistant:a
cashier of the Bank of Olanta, alonei
comminittedul the robbery, entering Mr.
Young's home when he was away on
a visit anI taking the safe therefrom
ie gave (letails as to the opeiations
of the pair since the rebbeiy was niiale
publie, stating that there was about
$85,000 worth of securities lid cash
in the safe. Ile state-I that there was
$35,000 in Liberty Bonds, about $3,000
in Wai Savings Stamps anti that the
safe also containe( bonds, mortgages
and bank stocks, all of which can be
realily identified; $10,000 in cash was
en deposit in a Florence bank.
The story of the anr'est of these nien.
reads like an up-to-date letective
story. Shortly a fter the robbery, a box
was rented at the Sumter postoflice
in the na me of Jacob S. Schroder, who
it will be recalled was robbed and Iur
(lere(d in (ha rleston sone time (i uring
the sum mer. ILater it developedl that
ceitainl I iberty Honds had been
shipped from S umter to Atlanta for
sarle on the Atlanta market. Tle size
of t hit bonids arousel Suspicion a(nd
tle Atlant a dealers were notified to
keep a diligent look <ut. About $28,
000 in ILiberty Bonds were forwarded
for. sah-. aiong. which were two regis
teredl \'itory Ionds in the sumil of
$-5:,(f0 eIcI. Upon inqu0 i ry fromiii the
Treasury Depairtment is to the owner
of' these borfils it. was aseert ainiedI that
they were registered in the name of'
Sam111 Young, of ILake City, With this
elue to work oin d-teettives vere sent 3

renter of the box. The local m.an em
ployed on the case r'alily recogn ized
one of the men as A *1. PTrultick anti
he and i is brother, JI. H1. Truluck have
been seen together frequently of late
in Suiter. A trap was then set for
them, the local postmaster h1aving been
notified of and giving asistance to
the pll:nm. 'lhe socalledl Jacob S.
