SOUTHERN STANDARD-MCMINNVILLE. TENNESSEE.SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1891.
. It is that Impurity in tho blood, which, ac
cumulating in tho glands ot the neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which
causes painful running sores on tho arms,
legs, or feet; which dcvclopcs ulcers in tho
eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or
deafness; which is tho origin ot pimples, can
cerous growths, or the many other manifesto
tions usually ascribed to "humors;" which,
fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being the most ancient, it is tho
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very lew persons are entirely ireo from it.
By taking llood's Sarsaparilla, which, by
the remarkable cures It has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar,
medicine lor this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Ilood's Sarsaparilla.
My daughterMary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the time she was 22 months
old till Bhe became six years of age. Lumps
formed In her neck, and one of them after
growing to the siieot a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. 'We gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all Indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Cablile, Nauright, N. J.

Mr. Harrison is really becoming
alarmed on account of the attitude
Mr. Blaine has ' assumed towards
him. It isn't the absurd fiction con
cerning Mr. Blaine's failing mental
powers that is worrying Mr . II., for
he has had occular demonstration
within the last four days that there is
not tho slightest disarrangement of
his premier's ability to use plain and
terse English, but it is the idea that
Mr. Blaine does not propose to 'give
him the benefit of his advice in shap
ing things for his nomination, and
that under the plea of ill health Mr.
Blaine may go to Maine and leave
him for an indefinite period to
wrestle alone with the important in
ternational questions that are now so
numerous in the State department
that they almost bump their heads
If the republican District Attorney
is not made to neglect bis duty by
the powers above him, young Mr.
Raum, the son of the borrowing Com
missioner of Pensions, may find him
self the inmate of a prison cell as the
result of his energy in selling ap
pointments and promotions in the
Pension office. The Civil Service
Commission, which was duped by
this young office-broker, is determin
ed, that is to say, "Teddy" Roose
velt, who is in reality tho commis
sion, is determined that Baum and
and his confederates shall be prosecn
ted, and if he can possibly accomplish
it, punished. The evidence, which
Roosevelt says makes a plain case,
was laid before Mr. Harrison ; he re
ferred it to the Attorney General after
holding a long consultation with him,
and doubtless mapping out precisely
how much in earnest the prosecution
is to be on the part of the Govern

The old fake that Mr. Harrison
had come to the conclusion that it
and decent to
give the democrats three out of the
nine U. S. Circuit Court Judges, has
again been revived, possibly by the
visit to the White House of a delega-
tion of Virginians, led by Senator
Barbour, in the interest of a demo-
crane candidate ior one or the ap
pointments. When he appoints even
one democrat then I shall believe
that he intends recogniziug the par

some of the known republican candi

And this we should do for the sake

From Bad to Worse.
The ordinary treatment of contagi
ous blood poisoning is to drive one
poison from the system by introduc
ing another. The jesult, in most
cases, has been that which usually
follows a leap from the frying-pan
into the fire. To put it mildly, mer
curial and other mineral poisonings
have disadvantages which are hardly
less serious than contagious blood poi
son. In either- case the system is
wrecked; and yet there is no reason
why humanity should continue to
suffer. It is the office of S. S. S. to
cure contagious blood poisoning. For
that disease the medicine is surely a
specific. And it is also its office to
cure mercurial and other mineral
poisoning. In short, S. S. S. is the
great blood purifier. It destroys the
germs of the contagious disease, and
expels from the system all forms of
mineral poisoning. It restores health
and strength to the sufferer.
