A Tragic Life Story
If there is aavihins; in tbe theory that vs pet our heaver, and hell here on earth,
it could bo said with perfect truth that a. i 1 nndic.il prericriptiou known as I. D. D.,
literally lifted this man out of hell. Ibe awtul miseries of a poisoned skin can be
understood only by the alfictad. The eights of sleepless neny with hands tied to
prevent tearing the flesh, the rundown general rendition which results, and the black
hopelessness of liTe can all be vir-ibly traced in th2 rt of thee photos. As will be
seen, this man in a man cf powerful physique, but it will hs sevn frcra his face in the
iir?t picture that it it?, grim s'.ri;'Ir! (o l:v.- ;inl lotp up his cot:rno.
In contrast, if the reader will lair! cr.risider the picture after treatment with
D. D. I)., anew man is sen. Study this picture; contrast the two. Somethin has
worked a wonder here. Header, it was nothing on earth but I). D. D. and a kind
Providence which directed the attention cf this man to a public announcement about
this medicament and its wonderful work in .s.:ch cases. Providence went farther than
this; it g.ive him soras confidence in what he read. He made up his mind that he
wou'd try it. To this fact li i owes the peace;, content and happiness so plainly
seen in his face in the second picture. lie states that after the third application of
the remedv all his previous distress Iial disappeared entirely. ' The fevered condition
resulting from continued irritation had subsided and he dept soundly nights.
The name of this petleman is Mr. Henry Waiters, cf St. Iouis, Mo. We have
the sworn affidavit of Mr. Walters thr.t in just twcntv-r.ine days after starting treat
ment with D. D. D. he discontinued further use of it, every visible trace of the dis
ease having disappeared. Since that time not a trace ot the trouble has shown itself
on any part of his body. His hair has since grown long and the scrubby beard pre
viously grown on his face to hide the sores, is kept cleanly thaved. and he is today a
man of strikingly fine appearance, with the highest ambition and activities in life and
every happiness possible to most men her3 on earth. Results of this kind that are
proven to be directly due to a preparation of this sort certainly call for public ap
preciation. This prescription in sealed bottles, bearing authentic label of D. D. L.
Co. of Chicago, sold at $1. The bottle is a liberal one and has proved sufficient to
entirely cure many cases.
is probably the worst and mor.t stublxjrn cf skin diseases, and it was for this that this
prescription was studied out and perfected, but all skin diseases are caused bv para
bites or some form of germ life in the skin-structure. The prescription quickly and
entirely annihilates all forms of parasitic life lodged anywhere in the skin.
Many people imagine they hare blood trouble when they break out with some form
of skin affection, but not in one case in a hundred is this a fact, as the very
healthiest blood is often found in the strongest men affected with breaks and erup
tions of some kind in the skin. In all such cases the trouble is at the surface or near
the surface, and ir can be searched cut and annihilated completely by this preparation.
The Above Is True-
I have received carefully prepared and fully attested documents and particulars
regarding the case above mentioned cf Mr. Henry Walters, of St. Louis, a victim of
psoriasis, a form of eczema. I can say to all persons afflicted with any form
of skin disease that the medical testimony submitted shows beyond a doubt
that they can cure themselves by the use of this preparation. I say beyond a doubt.
I mean this fully, providing the afiection is really a skin disease, as it has been shown
that each of the known germs that cause skin affection have been entirely routed
out and conquered by the preparation.

Sermon by Rev. D. I
AID F02 THICKER FE01I HOME
rator Next to Mother in Influencing
Future of the
Iter. D. L. McNary, pastor of the
United Presbyterian church, yester
day morning' delivered a sermon upoa
the subject, "Our Public Schools."
His text was Psalms 144:12, "Thut
our sons may be as plants grown up
in their youth; that our daughters
may ue as corner stones, polished af
ter the similitude of a palace."
Itev. McXary said in part: "This
verse is the psalmist's prayer for
divine blessing upon the sons and
daughters, of his nation that they
may become strong and beautiful
men and women. Can patriotism
suggest a more vital prayer? For
the nation of 20 years from now is
growing up in the boys and girls' of
"All over. our land school bells are
ringing, and tomorrow morning onr
own cit3 schools open for another
year's work. Our public school sys
tem is our country's greatest effort
to insure the safety of our future. It
is the drill ground of her fulure de
fenders. AH the world's armies are
outnumbered bv the. scholars who
tomorrow will throng the" schools of
"Our public schools are modern in
stitutions. Formerly education was
only the privilege of the rich man's
child, just as freedom at one tune
belonged only to the man who was
rich enotfgh or powerful enough 1u
procure it. Onr country boasts that
everv man is free,' and a better boast
still is that every child in our land is
entitled to an education. I like the
democratic character of our public
schools. Children of different nation
alities and of different religious at
tend the same school. This broadens
their sympathies and has made the
iK-rsecutions of past centuries an im
possibility today. A hopeful sign in
the. threatening struggle between
labor and capital is in the fact that
their sons sit side by side in our pub
lie schools and play football together
:n the gridiron.
"Tiki much importance cannot le
attached to the school period of life.
It is the time when life's ideals are
formed and the character is given
its bent. Next to the mother in the
home the teacher in our "schools Is
the greatest influence in molding the
child's life. A scholar is under the
teacher's care six hours in the day
and five days in the week. --Little
wonder that conscientious teachers
feel this responsibility to be a heavy
burden and long for the sympathy
and help of others.
Tlelp From the Tlomn.
"There are two sources from which
our teachers expect help and should
receive it. They should have the stij
port of the home. It is upon the
home that the final responsibility for
child training must rest. The school
is a helper to the home. A place
where the child is given an education
(he parent could not give, llow es
sential that those in the home should
be in sympathy with the workers In

ages disorder instead of obedience
there is something vitally wrong.
Our schools should have the sympa
thy and help of the church ami chris
tian neoole. In no way would we
unite the church and school save in
the union tf sympathy. Shall , the
followers of the Master who fir:t
pointed out the value of 'childhood
have no interest in the children's
training?' We pray for our president

MORE AREA IS NEEDED

TO INCREASE THE PAEADE SPACE
Number of Important Improvements
- Are in Pros
pect. number of important improve
ments at Camp Lincoln are under con
sideration and the legislature will be
linked to give them favorable con
sideration. Chief among these is a
proposition to increase the size of the
camp by extending the parade
ground. Kxpericnee in holding brig
ade encampments has shown the ne
cessity for a more extensive field up
on which to work, and the adjutant
general will urge that the additional
land necessary be secured without
further delay. It is now admitted
that a larger camp should have been
purchased in the first instance, and
the only manner in- which the mis
take can be rectified is to get ad
ditional land before the territory
near the camp has been built up and
put beyond the reach of the state.
When Camp Lincoln was estab
lished the. plan was an experiment
and the state did not care to in
vest very heavily in the project. Fx
nerience has demonstrated the wis
dom of the movement and the advisn
bilitv of the site selected. No netter
location for a camp could have been
found within the state and the im
provements made are of such charac
ter as to add to its natural advan
tages. The military authorities woiih
not think of abandoning the site tin
less it was found necessary to no s
on account of limited space, and it
is to save the admirable property the

Adjutant General Smith has d
cided that it will not be practicable
to open the Camp Lincoln rifle range
for the benefit of the Sangamon coun
ty militiamen who are anxious to per
fect themselves in marksmanship, and
it was announced yesterday that no
more shooting would be done on the
i ange this year.
There are several reasons why the
local range cannot be used again this
year. Thr state does not own the
land back of its rifle butts, and the
people who have homes there are in
danger when the rane is in use. It
is necessary for them to leave their
places while the shooting is going on
and the state must compensate them
for loss of time. When the encamp
ment is on the state has a regular
contract with the land owners af
fect ed by Ihe range, but Ibis con
tract has run out, and it is doubtful
whether another could be made this
season of the year. The property
owners are anxious to finish up their
summer and fall work and will nut
care to leave their places at any
Mast Rebuild Range.
In "addition to this, it would require
a considerable outlay to put- the ritle
range in good shape for good work
at this time. It will lie necessary to re
build the range before another year
in any event, and money expended
upon it at this time for temporary
use, would be thrown away. There
is not enough money at hand to make
the needed permanent improvements,
and no more will be expended on the
range until tbe legislature makes an
appropriation to rebuild it.
