THE AKGUS, WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, 1905.
I i I
I am compelled by a sense of gratitude
to tell you the great good your remedy
has done me in a case of Contagions Blood
Poison. Among other symptoms I was se
verely afflicted with Rheumatism, and got
almost past going. The disease got a firm
hold upon my system; my blood was thor
oughly poisoned with the virus. I lost ia
weight, was run down, had sore throat,
eruptions, splotches and other evidences
of the disease. I was truly in a bad shape
when I began the use of S. S. S., but the
persistent use of it brought me out of my
trouble safe and sound, and I have the
courage to publicly testify to the virtues of
your great blood remedy, S. S. S., and to
recommend it to all blood-poison suffer
ers, sincerely believing if it is taken ac
cording to directions, and given a fair
trial, it will thoroughly eliminate every
particle of the virus. Tames Cu&Bjlm.

Painful swellings in the groins, red ernp
tions upon the skin, sores in the mouth
and loss of hair and eyebrows, are some of
the symptoms of this vile disease. S. S. 3.
is an antidote for the awful virus that
attacks and destroys even the bones.
S. S. S. contains no Mercury, Potash or
other mineral ingredient. We offer Ji.ooc

Miss Witherspoon has taught 15 years
in the Rock Island schools, all of which
time she has been connected with the
Irving school. For several years she
has been in charge of seventh grade
classes, sharing with Miss Kirkpatrick
the care of this grade. Miss Bessie
Montgomery, who has taught very suc
cessfully for two years in schools of
the county, was reported by the com
mittee as having been calleJ from the
list of available substitutes to take
charge of the class of pupils taught by
Miss Kirkpatrick. The action of the
committee was in both instances rati
fied by the board.
A committee from the Bluff Improve
ment association appeared before the
board with a petition that they be per
mitted to hold their monthly meetings
in the basement of the Horace Mann
school building. As their organization
represents the public interests of the
people of that school district, the peti
tion was granted, the janitor of the
school, who is an active member of the
Bluff Improvement association, being
especially charged with responsibility
for the building while so used.
