When a child I had a very severe at

the free use of iodine, the rint one was

and a Targe quantity of pus discharged.
The gland was removed, or as much as
could with safety be taken out. For ten
vears I wore a little piece of cloth about an
inch long in my neck to keep the place
open. During this time I had to have it
cut open by the doctor every time I took
cold or the opening cloged. In the Spring

by my wife to use S. S. S., which I did,

ONE SURVIVOR OF THE

William H. Lee is Probably the Only
1 One Pioneer of the
William H. Lee. of Shobonier. 111.,
claims tiie distinction of being the sole
survivor of the Black Hawk war of
1S32. Mr. Lee is now in his 90th year.
The story of his life shows many hard
ships, but the pioneers on the frontier
a half or three-quarters of a century
ago were inured to hardships. Mr.
Lee was brought west from New York
when he was 3 years old. The party
made its way on two rafts and a flat
boat constructed ef logs. The emi
grants took all of their live stock with
them on their passage down the Alle
ghany and Ohio rivers, landing at
Shawneetown. from there going to Sa
em. and finally to Vandalia, at that
time only a small village. At thia
place Lee grew to young manhood un
der the hard lessons of frontier life.

mill and in sawing lumber.
When the Sac and Fox, or, as it was
known, the Black Hawk war, broke
out in 1S32, William H. Iee was only
Hi years old, but he possessed cour
age equal ft the hardy training he hail
received in his I!l;iu.l:- piom-er life.
t lo ,e of t ie war he made
three sucee-ssful trips to New Orleans

each time taking large loans of grain.

trip was followed by two others. On

EXTEND THE WORK
Branch Laboratories Being Placed
Over State by Board of
TO AID RAPID ANALYSIS
Regulations of Postoffice Require Spe
' cial Skill in Preparing Sam
ples For Mailing.
Preparations are now being made
for greatly extending the work of the
laboratory of the state board of health.
Iahoratory container stations are be
ing established in every county of the
state fr the convenience of physicians
and health officers. On account of the
stringent regulations of the postoffice
d.-;art ment in the transportation of
specimens of deceased tissue by mail,
it s necessary to use specially devised
containers er mailing cases for this
purpese and t:p to the present time,
the physician desiring to send tissues
for diagnostic examination in the la
boratory was compelled to send to
Springfield for the cases. The estab
lishment of container stations at a
central point in each county will save
much time in getting specimens to the
laboratory, which is a feature of the
utmost importance in some diseases.
Laboratory! HtMirflt Miuhd.
The laboratory of the state board of
health was established last July and
occupies a small suit of rooms in the
Odd Fellows building at Springfield.
Its chief function is the making of
scientific diagnosis of infections and
communicable diseases and in the past
few months it has established th
diagnosis in hundreds of cases of tu
berculosis. typhoid fever and diph
theria for the medical men of the state
A laboratory diagnosis is of value not
only on account of its exactness and
posit iveness but on account of the fact
that it produces conclusions as to the
nature of the disease by a stage when
c.inical methods could only show :
suspicii-.il that such a disease' exists.
Kapiil IHaKnoNiM Important.
The rapidity of diagnosis is especial
ly imj oitant in diphtheria and typ'io1!
fever, inasmuch as it permits early
treatment before unfavorable compli-
1 rations have developed, and in the
former disease it leads to the earliest

they will be immediately valuable, will

Lombard May Drop Baseball.
Not a little interest has been arous
ed by the rumor that McDaniel, the
Ijnibard star baseball pitcher and
center fielder, may be compelled to
leave school on account ef his health.
Although there has been no schedule
arranged for the college team, the
mat3rial in school with McDaniel as
a leader showed well for a good team.
However, if he leaves along with one
or two other men, who contemplated
not being in school during the spring
term, it is probable that the entire
strength of the athletic association
will be given to the support of a track

OF SORE HANDS
By Cuticura After tho
Most 'Awful Suffering
And Many Remedies Failed
to do a Cent's Worth
I was troubled with sore bands, so
sore that when I would pnt thera in
water the pain would nearly set me
crazy, the stin would peel off and the
flesh would get hard and break. There
would be blood flowing from at least
fifty places on each hand. Words could
never tell the suffering I endured for
three years- I tried everything, but
could get no relief. I tried at least
eight different doctors, but none did
me any good, as my hands were a3 bad
when I got through doctoring as when
I began. I also tried many remedies,
but none of thein ever did me one
cent's worth of good. I was discour
aged and heart-sore. I would fed so
bad mornings, to think I had to go to
work and stand the pain for ten hours,
I often felt like giving up my position.
Before I started to work I would
have to wrap every finger up sep
arately, so as to try and keep them
soft, and then wear gloves over the
rags to keep the grease from getting
on my work. At night I would have
to wear gloves ; in fact, I had to war
gloves all the lime. But thanks to
Cuticura, that is all over now.
