Christy were declared - at the police
station this morning by Miss Maria
Mendoza to be the two men she had
seen In the "store of E L. Stewart, on
South Stanton street, shortly after 10
oclock Tuesday night. The men stoutly
denied the charge.
Miss Mendoza. who is employed as
bookkeeper at the furniture store, was

noticed two men acting suspiciously
One of them was standing back of the
safe and the other was in front of
the store calling to his companion to
hurry- She went to a nearby telephone
and communicated with her employer,
who hurried to the scene on horseback.
However, when he reached the store,
he found the safe had not been opened
and nothing was missing from the
store. He tried to get into communi
cation with Ills bookkeeper by tele
phone, but says he found that the line
had been cut and then went to a near
Just as he had received a descrip
tion from his bookkeeper he turned
from the phone and saw two young
roen answering the description fur
nished, standing near by. He asked
them to walk back to the store with
him and they readily complied with his
request and made no effort to get
away. They were all met at the store
by detectives wlio took them Into cus
tody and docketed mem as suspicious
At the station this morning the girl
said they were the men she saw in
the store, though they both declared
they were -guiltless and had simply
been walking around seeking some di
version. Preston said he had come from Tor
reon, Mexico, and had met Christy,
who claimed to have come from Doug

HOW HE CURED
I wrote you some time ago, giving- you an account of my
sufferings with, an awful case of Catarrh. 1 had all the symp
toms which accompany this disease, such as mucus dropping
back into the throat, a constant desire to -hawk and spit,"
feeling of dryness in the throat, cough and spitting upon
arising, scabs forming in the nose which required much effort
to blow out, sometimes causing my nose to bleed and leaving
me with a headache. I had thus suffered for five years, all the
time trying different local treatments of inhalations, snuffs,
douches, etc., with no real good effect. Of course I was greatly
discouraged. As soon as I heard from you I commenced S. S. S.
as you advised and after using it a short while noticed a change
for the better. I continued to take it believing the trouble was
in the blood, and S. S. S. made a permanent cure for me. I am
now entirely free from Catarrh.
JTJDSON A. BELLAM.
4 "224 Randolph St., Richmond, Va.
The symptoms Mr. Bellam describes in his case of Catarrh are
familiar to every one who suffers "with this disease. For five years he
had endured the discomfort and suffering, and was greatly discouraged
as one treatment after another failed to cure him. When at last he
realized that Catarrh isU blood disease, he knew that the former
treatments had been wrong, and only a blood purifier like S. S. S
could produce permanent good results.
Catarrh is not merely an affection of the mucous membranes; it is
a deep-seated blood disease in which the entire circulation and greater
part of the system are involved. It comes from impurities accumulat
ing in the circulation, and as the blood goes to every portion of the
body the catarrhal matter irritates and inflames the different mucous
surfaces and tissues causing an unhealthy and inflammatory discharge,
and producing the other well known symptoms of the trouble.
The failure of local treatment to produce permanent good resuhs
in Catarrh is due entirely to the fact that such measures do not reach
the cause of the trouble. Temporary relief and comfort may often be
had by using some douche or inhalation, but no cure can be effected
until the blood is purified of the irritating cause.
S. S. S. cures Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all impure catarrhal
matter, and at the same time building up the system by its unequalled
tonic effects. It goes down into the circulation and removes every
trace of foreign matter or impurity. In other words S. S. S. cures
Catarrh by purifying the blood so that the mucous surfaces and linings
cease, the stomach is toned up, the throat is no longer clogged with
phlegm, but every annoying symptom of the disease is corrected.
There is but one way to cure Catarrh purify the blood, and there is
but one absolutely safe and sure blood purifier S. S. S. We have a
special book on Catarrh; we will send this boo, and also any special
medical advice desired free to all who write.
