There is no way to cure Catarrh except to purify the blood, and thus
do away -with tho cause. The symptoms "may be benefited by the use of
washes, inhalations, sprays, medicated tobaccos, etc., and through the use
of such. treatment catarrh sufferers receive temporary relief and comfort.
External and local measures howev4r cannot have any effect on the blood,
and therefore their use alone is of no real curative value. Catarrh is a
deep-seated blood disease, and comes as the result of catarrhal matter and
other impurities in the circulation. These morbid matters in the blood
causa an inflammatory and irritated condition of the mucous membrane or
tissue lining of the cavities of the body, producing an unhealthy secretion,
ringing noises in the ears, stuffy feeling in the head and nose, headaches,
hoarseness, bronchial affections, watery eyes, etc. S. S. S. is the best treat
ment for Catarrh because it is the greatest of all blood purifiers. This
medicine removes every particle of the catarrhal impurity from the circula
tion, making this vital fluid pure, fresh and healthy. Then the inflamed
membranes begin to heal, because they are nourished with pure, health
giving blood, every symptom disappears, and soon S. S.S. produces a perfect
cure. S. S. S. does not contain any habit-forming drugs, which really never
can cure Catarrh, but often ruin the health. Book on Catarrh and any

Dr. James Douglas before leaving
Arizona addressed a . packed house at
the Orpheum theater on "Transcontinen
tal Lines," and from his remarks the
trend of the future plans of the El Paso
and Southwestern were secured.
He stated that the original plans of
the Santa Fe were to, pass tnrough the
San Pedro valley and develop that sec
tion of the country, which the South
western later did. Then he told of the
progress of the Southwestern, the con
struction of the line from the Copper
Queen mines at Bisbee to Fairbank,
then on to Benson, to Douglas to con
nect with the mines at Nacozari, etc.
"At this time," he said, "the E. P. &
S. TV. has no intention to make a coast
conection. Tucson is at present more
valuable as a terminal than Benson, and
in a short time it is expected the road
will be built through to Tucson."
He then discussed the possibility of
building on to Phoenix and further de
veloping the rich country thereabouts,
but stated that that -would not be taken
up right away. He then reiterated, to
"I do not see at this time any rea
son for the E. P. & S. W. to build to
the coast or enter into competition with
the coast railways. There are no such
plans at present."
He concluded by stating that the rail
road had done the best by this country,
better than any competing line would do
and that there wag no reason for com
petition as long as the E. P. & S. W.
continued as it has been and is now

As to Nora, encouraged by the unac

his speech, the girl ventured to look at
him. and as timidly she held out her
hand and he clasped it with a warm
pressure she encountered his gaze of
mingled amusement and admiration.
Nora's eyes were large and dark and
expressive. Crawford thought he had
never seen any more beautiful. But
they were not by any means the girl's
only charm. She was distinctly pret

blush rose complexion which her dark
hair, worn in a braid down her back,
set off to the best possible advantage.
Although barely seventeen, she was
well developed, and her plain cotton
