Tom Reed and Amoi Cumnnsg*
The Washington, l> C Ttm-M iayi
??1 met Turn Reed down In Florida ?
few months ago." said Representative
Arac* Onmmings "John K Lamb a
Homar representative from Indiana, wa-i
with me. Lamb i> on? ?t lb? brighten!
and b?^t st.?ry tellers thst I have ?*v.*r
met and I never enjoyed an evening
am than tin- on? in -qa-Mtion Raed
talked, Lain!) talked ami I contributed
my ?hare to theoonvoraatioo. If 1 had
had my wit-* apont me 1 wonld baye
Noewniaed tin- fact that tin? drift of
Heed's f?tlk pointed to his retirement
from Qongieaa He disoossed all ? f the
curreut topics ol the day freely l> >wn
in his heart Reed firmly believes that the
battleship Maine was blownnpfrom the
inside ;that Spain was in no way tespon
sible for it. He is also oppoaed to any
acquisition ?<f terril >ry by this o ?notry
The annexation .t the Hawaiian Islands
was iu direct Opp -in *n I i Ins judg?
ment, and he sinoerely tbooghl it to In*
a mistake. H>\ however, recognized
the f?ot that public sentim-ani was
against him, and that explains, la my
opinion, his decision i retii
public life. After I got back to my
hotel in Florida f ?Uowing my talk with
Reed, I fell to thinking ??ver what he
had said. 'It means that he ta going to
?luit. ' was tlu> ver.lu't I bad reaohed
when Lamb cam?' In. He bad I
the same impression and frankly ex?
pressed it. We both disoossed th
ter, however, and reached the conclu
sion that we must be mistaken . that it
could n??t be possible that Tom Reed
actually had made np his mind to re?
sign from Congress Ai i yet there
was n*> othw intrrpretation to be placed
on Mr. Reed - o nversation. What a
big newspaper | so p 1 might have -
if I had oomprehended the real drift of
Mr. Heed's talk Mr Ri ed il 0|
to expansi.m m any direction, appar?
ently. He is n >t in sympathy with the
public sentiment of the timM He may
have some faint Idea ol eventually
reaching the White H ?nse, but, in my
opinion, his retirement marks tbe end
Of his political career. He will not !??
heard of again in all probability in the
polities of the oountry

ONLY ONE CURE
S. S. S. is the Only
Remedy Equal to this
There are dozens of remedies recommend-ed for
Scrofula, some of them do doubt b-eing able? to
atT?>t\l temporary relief, but S. S. 8. is absolutely
the only remeay which completely cures it.
Scrofula Is one of the moat obstinate, deep-seated
blood diseases, a^-il is beyond the reach of thu
many so-called purifiers on?! tonics because >t.>tiie
tliing more than n mere t??nic i* required, S. 8. H.
ia equal to any blood trouble, ami never fails to euro Scrofula, because it
?oes ?li.wn to the scut of the disease, thus permanently eliminating ever]
trace of the tainU
The serious consequences to which Scrofula surely leads
should impress upon those afflicted with it the vital im?
portance of wasting no time upon treatment which can
not ?>?>ssib!y effectacure. ??ti many ?vise? a here the wrong
treatment has btien relied upon, complicated glandular
swellings have resulted, for which t!*e doctors insist that
a ?langerons surgical operation is necessary.
Mr. H. E. Thomnson, of Milledgeville, Qa., writes : " \
ba?l case of Scrofula broke out on tin* glands of my neck,
which had to be lanced and cans???! me much suffering. I
was ti-eated for a long while, but the physicians were un?
able to cure me, and niy condition was n-? bad as when I
l">egan their treatment Many blood remedies ?ere used,
but without effect. Someone recommend?ed 9 S, B., nod
I began to improve as soon as I had taken a few bottles.
Continuing the remedy, I was soon cured permanently,
and have never had a sign of the disoaae to return." m\ ift's Specific?
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
?is the only remedy which can promptly reach and cure obstinate, deep-seate?!
blood diaeasee. By relying upon it, and not experimenting with the various
so-called tonics, etc., nil sufferers from blood troubles can l>e promptly cured,
! of enduring years of suffering which gradually but surely undermines
the constitution. 6, S. S. la guaranteed purely vegetable, and never fails t.?
cure Scrofula, Eczema, Cancer. Rheumatism, Contagious M??>d Poison, Hoils,
Tetter. I'imt.les. 8ores, Ulcers, etc. Insist upon S S S. ; nothing can take its place.
