THE ARGUS, FKIDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1903.
Is one of the
of that tor-
menting disease called Eczema. It slum
bers through the summer and breaks
out in -n inter. The head, feet and hands
are the parts most often attacked, though
it sometimes appears on other parts of the
body, the skin hardens, cracks open and
bleeds, while the itching and burning is
at times almost unbearable. Scratching
only makes it worse, sores and scabs
forming where the 6kin is broken.
In this form of Eczema brownish white
form which scale off
in fine particles,
leavingthe skin raw
and inflamed. It is
especially painful and severe when con
fined to the hands, which often become so
badly affected that the sufferer is unable
to perform the lightest work. Thi3, like
all other types of Eczema, is due to acid
poisons in the bloody and not to local
causes. The trouble is more than skin
deep, and washes, soaps, powders and
( salves nor anything else applied to the
' surface can possibly do more than soothe
the burning and itching or relieve tempos
rarily the inflammation and pain.
It is the acids thrown off by the blood
and which are forcing their way through
the pores that cause the skin to harden,
crack and bleed, and produce the irrita
tion ana soreness.
S. S. S. neutralizes
these acid poisons
and cleanses the blood
of all irritating sub
stances and humors
and does it promptly and effectually.
S. S. S. purifies and invigorates the thin
acid blood, and builds up the entire sys
tem ; then the unsightly eruption and sores
heal, the skin becomes smooth and soft,
and all signs of the Eczema disappear.

Springfield, Ills., Feb. C "The I l
nois Assoeiatlou of State Officials" lia
been orKiuiized. It is composed of thi?
members and secretaries of all the
state boards and commissions, and tho
trustees of the state Institutions. The
organ izatlon was effected 'VediKsday
at a meeting held with Governor
Yates at the executive mansion. The
new organization Is to be non-political.
Every department was r presented,
and the meeting was the largest of
its kind that has ever I een held at
the mansion. It was called to order
by Governor Yates, who spoke in part
Governor Pays a CompliinenU
"I have called you gentlemen to
gether today lor several purposes. In
the first place I think it is very de
sirable that as you are all connected
with the same great' institution, and.
indeed, are. so to speak, numbers ol
the faculty of the great institution
called the stave of Illinois, you shculd
be well acquainted with one an th r.
In tho absence of acquaintances-nip
with one another yon may perhaps i ol
be aware of the fact, of which I am
both aware and also proud, namely,
that the members and secretaries of
the Illinois boards and comm'ssions
and the heads of the Illinois dep r.
ments and state Institutions, consti
tuted a very line body of men and
women. I speak advisedly, as I know
that this is true. You wi'.l rind it to
be so after you shall have Ik come!
acquainted, a I earnestly urge you
Also To Be EdactlhnaL
"In the second place, I am of the
opinion that U is not enough that you
should be- simply .well acquainted. I
have come to the coifclus!on to advo
cate a series of quarterly meetings.
It, is import.' nt that each man con
nected as yoa are with one depart
ment of the --tate government slioidl
also know each man connected with
every other department and it is fur
ther important that each of you urder
stand the subject of the work of each
and all the departments. This will Ik;
knowledge added to acquaintance. Thl
knowledge can be acquired by having
ri'ad at each of the quarterly meetings !
a series of papers prepared by repre
sentatives of the different institutions
Organization I Effected.
"In the third place I am of the opin
ion that in addition to the acquaint
anceship mentioned in the first place,
and the knowledge mentioned in the
second. there should be, as an aid to
both of these things, a formal asso
ciation." The governor then suggested
the measures that should be taken and
In accordance with the sugges ion a
committee of three, consisting of K. J.
Murphy, of Will county; K. A. Sn'.ve
ley, of Sangamon county, and Waller
Woods, of Alexander county, was ap
pointed for tW' purpose of organizing
along the lines suggested by the gov
ernor. A constitution was recommended
by the committee and adopted, and the
following officers were elected for the
ensuinj? year: President, Bisr.op Satn
uel Fallows. Chicago: secretary, E. A.
Sniveley. of Springfield: assistant sec
retary. Mrs. Henry T. Itainey. of Car
rollton. An executive committee was
also appointed, which suggested a pro
gramme for the first quarterly meet
ing in April.

Which Reason Is Alleged for Bis Presld
lag at the SoB'rsjje Meeting.
Springfield, Ills., Feb. 0. The wom
an suffragists had their clay In court
TTlth-the members of the general as
sembly Wednesday afternoon. The leg
islators crowded the hall of the house
of representatives while the women
gave their reasons for passing the
pending bill to confer limited suffrage
upon taxpaying women. The women
bad a hard time getting a member of
the legislature to preside. Speaker Mil
le was requested to preside, and hasti
ly declined. A do-sen other senators and
representatives were Invited to act as
chairman, but all suddenly discovered
that they had pressing business which
would prevent their acceptance. Final
ly Senator Burnett was drafted, and
U9 he is chairmun of the senate com
mittee on elections he could not escape
and reluctantly promised to call the
meeting to order. He stipulated, how
eevr, that Mrs. C. W. McCuIIocgh
should Introduce the speakers and do
the honors. "
However,, with , work of the formal
meeting, supplemented by the personal
talks with members, the suffragists be
lieve they have materially advanced
the prospects of their bill. This meas
ure, 'which Is ' being co-operatively
pushed by practically all of the wom
en's clubs and organizations of the
State, provides that women who have
paid taxes within two years
may "vote -for members of 'the
state , board of equalization, county
x)llector, members of board of asses
sors, members of board of review, san
itary district trustees, and all officers
of cities, villages and towns .except po
lice magistrates. ! '
.. ..This would still leave them with nc
rote on state officers, members of "the
legislature, members of congress, pres
idential electors, Judges, clerks of the
courts anrt' in fact ne?.rly all of this
county officers except those concerned
with assessing and collecting taxes.
The leaders of the suffrage meeting
were iu the receiving line with Mrs.
Yates at the executive mansicn
ANNOUNCEMENT OF COMMITTEES
Date Was Uncertain the Last Time ths
Speaker XMscnssed the Blatter.
Springfield, Ills., Feb. G. "I am not
sure." said Speaker Miller yesterday
afternoon, "that I will be ready to an
nounce the house committees at tomor
row's session, but I want to if possible.
It has been found necessary to make
some shifts,? continued the speaker,
"and this Is going to take some time
and thought. There are some matters
in connection with the make-up of
some of the committees that I thought
would right themselves, and I have
permitted them to go unnoticed. I now
find that I will have to take a hand in
straightening them out, and in order to
do this it will keep me busy until the
hour of meeting tomorrow morning. If
I can get these matters satisfactorily
adjusted in time to announce the com
mittees tomorrow the list will go in,
otherwise the commutes Mill not be
made public until next week."
It is understood that one of the
onuses of delay in announcing the com
mittees is-that the Democrats have
submitted a revised list of the commit
tee assignments, so far as their side-of
the house is concerned, which they
want substituted for tho one previous
ly handed iu to the speaker. Another
cause is said to be that Lindly has been
substituted for Nohe as chairman of
the committee on municipal corpora
tions und that Nohe Is disposed to

In the house Wilson (lem.) moved a
reconsideration of the vote by which
the house Wednesday adopted the ma
jority report of the committee on rules.
Burton (Deni.) made a speech in
support of the motion, in which he as
sailed Governor Yates for his alleged
Interference in legislative matters.
"We have had governors in tills state,"
said he. "whose illustrious names re
flect credit upon this state: but all
those whose names have shed luster
upon the history of Illinois have been
men that found the executive chair
sufficiently large for them to occupy,
and the duties of the office sufficient
for tiie activities of their intellect."
Referring to the speaker, Hurt n
said: "I saw your honor, in com
pany with tho other members of this
assembly, stand up in the nicst solemn
manner before Almighty God and take
an oath to support the constitution of
the United States ami of the state ef
Illinois, and yesterday when you s'col
up and saw sixty men demanding their
constitutional liehts I wondered then
If you recognized the same constitution
that you had taken an oath to sup
port. From my youth, as an illustra
tion of extreme helplessness, I have
heard of n snow ball in h 1. Put
since I have been In this house I have
learned to. worship that snow ball as
compared with the rights of the mi
nority of this house."
The motion to reconsider was lost,
the. Republicans voting solidly against
it. Among bills Introduced in the house
were the following:
Arnold Prohibiting the collection
of excess fare on railroad" trains.
Farley Providing that manufactur
ers of high explosives shall secure the
consent of a majority of the legal vot
ers residing within one-half mile of
their factories before locating the same.

provisions that has been introduced to

Ihe official markings txjing entered in
the matches for the spring- birds.
To Test New Device.
A new device invented and patented
in Belgium, nvhere pigeon Hying in
carried to the acme of perfection,
will probably be introduced here dur
ing the reason. It Is an arrangement
that' automatically releases the birds.
There are two clocks attached, one
that stops and registers ihe time
when the birds leave and the other
that starts when "the birds do and
tells how long they are in transit.
This is sent away with a consignment
of birds anil is then sent back to the
starting place. By comparing the
watches of the judges who lake the
time f arrival of the birds with the
time of the running -clock the exact
lime that the birds are flying can le
told. This will overcome a very seri
ous difficulty in exactly timing a bird

tance. Officer of Club.
The date of the first spring flight
will 1m set at the next meeting. The
officers f the club for this tear are:
