Delays are Dangerous.
There are those who are morbidly
anxious about their health, watching
every symptom and dosing them
selves on the slightest provocation.
There are others who never give the
matter a thought, but permit real
symptoms to lapse into the certain
ties of disease. Between, these two
extremes the wise man steers never
unduly anxious, and yet not permit
ting genuine symptoms to develop.
He knows that delays are dangerous,
and he knows, moreover, that the
medicine most likely to be effective
is that which goes straight to the
seats of disease, and tones up the di
gestive organs, strengthens the sys-
tern and purifies the blood. He
takes a few doses of S. S. S., and soon
finds that all the symptoms have
disappeared, and that he is in a bet
ter condition than ever. The great
vegetable remedy has no rival.

Dryenforth and his party have
again achieved success in their efforts
to produce rainfall by artificial
means, and all this region is rejoic
iug in a heavy and widespread rain
storm which insures winter grass
and averts the distress which a few
weeks more of dry weather would
have brought. This is the second
heavy rain on the Morris ranch
which has fallen inside of eight days,
besides several light showers, and
there sems to be no reasonable doubt
but the rain-makers deserve much
of the credit, especially for the copi
ousness of the fall.
