GOOD judge must have both experience
and learning. A housekeeper should
be a good judge for she too must have
experience and learning or she may think that
the soaps made to look like Ivory Soap are just
as good. With experience she will know
that they lack the remarkable qualities of the

DRIVES INTO A SEWER:
HAS A NARROW ESCAPE.
Driving into a sewer which is being
built across Fifth avenue near Forty

of Moline, a remarkable experience
It ii a puzzling question how the
doctor managed to drive into the
ditch, as there were several red lan
terns stationed along side it and dirt
was thrown cp biah on both side?,
lie landed in tne ditch with the horse
on top of him and it is almost miracu
lous how he managed to escape un
hurt. When the horse was landed on the
pavement, which required an hour's
time and the employment of a derrick,
it was found to be unhurt also. The
only damage done was to the harness,
whicn had to ba cut in order to extri
cate the horse.

that he Is vain unless eMmolody tells

The social manner may be only skin
deep, but it is a tough skiu. It takes
more than a scratch to get through it.
The natural Hhoda came through one
night at a dance when Ferral made
her angry without Intending It. When
a ly suddenly tears off the loxliig
gloves and wishes to continue with bare
fists, there Is generally somebody handy
to stop him. Hut there happened to be
noliody to stop Hhoda. 1 doubt if any
body could have stopped her. A mo

lie had been speaking of Lucy Wyl
linger's eugagenieut. which he profess
ed to find incomprehensible. Uhoda
was an intimate friend of Lucy and
understood the engagement perfectly,
but as she had no limuliou of telling
IYrral anything whatever about it she
said that she thought so too.
l'erral suggested that pique might
be the explanation. "In fact," he
added fatuously, "I have heard it
hinted, though it is ridiculous enough,
that I am to blame."
The social manner still held. "What
do you mean?" she asked. "Did you
advise her In any way?"
"No. not that."
Rhoda's eyes flashed.
"Since you ore so fond of explana
tions, I will tell you one or two things
that you had better know things about
"Delighted," said Terral, who bad
not grasped the situation.
"For Instance. I think you do not
know that you are the common joke of
the set that, by no means for your sake,
utill tolerates you. I have seen you
leave people whom you evidently
thought that your bragging had im
pressed mightily, and I have been sorry
that you' did not bear what was said
when you had gone. I supiose you

You need not stare at me. I know per
fectly well that I have lost my temper.
I hope I shall lose my temper again if

not likely; one is generally careful not

You do not even know
the nic kname by which everybody calls

fond of explanation. Afterward even
your vanity will not tempt you to say
that Miss Wyllinger or anybody else
was in love w 1th you."
l'erral bad gone very v hite. "I can
see that 1 have offended you. but I
think there is a misunderstanding. I
did not say that Miss Wyllinger was in

opinion that the idea was ridiculous."

That was where, he told himself aft
erward, he should have left her, but he
had a morbid desire now to know the
very worst, for all the vainest men
live on the edge of a precipice of self
abasement. She gave him chapter and
verse, dryly and bitterly. S?he must
have hated him for a long time and
made notes of things in her mind. The
image of himself as he had supposed
himself collapsed in fragments.' Out of
them arose :t ghastly figure himself
as he was and now knew that he was.
For a moment he had a sense of injus

kind of instinctive vanity and without
Dlaunlnz it consciously, but did it merit
this virulent punishment? What did it
matter? Socially he was done and fin
ished. Rhoda Lcstrange would cut
him, and she would take good care not
to be alone In her action. He found
himself standing up, speechless. He
got out somehow.
Artcr the last carriage had rolled
away In the early morning he was still
awah. He sat and thought over the
comparative values of suicide, the
Catholic church, active service, the life
of a scholar and a recluse. Under

had to get nwny from them, but pri

years afterward shy. quiet, unselfish

When there Is a natural and healthy circulation of tae blood, the entire
juantity, estimated at one-eighth the weight of the body, passes through the heart
every five minutes. This rapid flow of the blood through the system prevents th i
entrance of disease germs and impurities of every description. It filters out all that
is not necessary or good for the growth, and development of the body and nourish
ing and strengthening the muscles, tisstfes, nerves and bones. But, unfortunately,
few persons can rightly claim an absolutely pure blood supply and perfect and
unpolluted circulation, and in consequence are exposed to innumerable diseases.
Contagious Blood Poison, the greatest enemy to mankind, enters the system
through the blood, and Cancer, Scrofula, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Eczema, Salt

6ores, chronic ulcers and rheumatic pains are com- Qj 3 SffOnffttS
Eton, especially among old people, whose blood
naturally grows thin and pale because of the lack of the red corpuscles that give
color and strength to youthful blood. Sallow complexions and rough, oily skins
evidence some constitutional or blood trouble, which salves, lotions, powders nor
any external treatment can cure. Diseases that originate in the blood, whether
they manifest themselves as ulcers, tumors, itching eruptions, muscular or bone
pains, require a tonic and blood purifier such as S. S. S., which not only antidotes
and ijeutralizes blood poisons and humors, but possesses health-giving tonic proper
ties that no other blood, medicine does. It goes down to the very foundation of
a disease and eliminates from the system, every
PoIIufCCf EtiGOtM thing of a poisonous character or that obstructs and
m clogs the circulation. It builds up and imparts
BFCCBQ OlSCOSO new strength and vitality to the old inmitritious
blood, and when the arteries and veins are once
more filled with new rich blood, the general health begins to improve, muscles
grow stronger, and sores and eruptions of every kind disappear.
S. S. S. is the only guaranteed purely vegetable blood purifier, and the purest
and most reliable in all blood diseases. It has been tested in thousands of cases
during the past fifty years and is more popular today than ever. "We will be glad
