Mrs. F. H. Brandt, who was Misr
Pauline Woltmann, formerly of thi.-
city. has gained instant favor at her
home in Boise, Idaho, lo which city
she has recently removed. Mrs. Brand

Boise Statesman, in sneaking of the
concert and of Mrs. Brandt's work.
"The symphony orchestra concert
given in lienor of the delegates to the
irrigation congress at the Riverside
threater last evening was a revelation,
not only to the visitors from abroad
but to the townspeople as well. Th.
splendid ensemble, the perfect unison
and harmony were a delight to all. Mrs.
F. H. Brandt's first number, "Lietc
Signer," from L'Huguenots, revealed
her marvelous contralto voice to per
feet ion. Her clear, deep tones com
pletely tilled every corner or the im
mense open-air theater, which is so dif
ficult for a singer accustomed to a
closed building to sing in. She was
encored repeatedly until she was oblig
ed to sing a second number, choosing
'God Is In His Heaven; All's Well.'
Her last selection, a dainty Irish ballad.
'Sweet Is Tipperary," was completely
captivating, and she received two en
cores. "The immense audience completely
packed the house, the boxes being fill
ed with the officers and local board of
the congress, their wives and friends.
It was a brilliant assemblage of peo
ple, who thoroughly appreciated the
treat which had been arranged for

IDS THE SYSTEM.'
The healthy color of the skin is jriven to it by the millions of little rod
corpuscles in the blood. These are the carriers of nourishment, health ami
strength to all parts of the body in other words the very life of the
blood. When the perms of Malaria get into this vital fluid they destroy
these corpuscles and rob the blood of it3 rich, lifea-ustahiiiig- qualities, ren
dering it thin, weak and watery and unable to supply the system with the
needed strength to residt disease. Then the symptoms of Malaria such as
pale, sallow complexions, weak vitality, poor nppetite. deranged digestion, a
general "let down" condition of the system, and perhaps chills and .slight
fever.how that this insidious disease is gradually affecting- the entire health.
Malaria must be removed from the system through the circulation, and he
medicine to accomplish this is S. S. S. It not only cleansc3 the blood of all
impure, unhealthy matter, but rids the system of Malaria, and restores the
blood to a strong, healthy condition. S. S. S., besides removing- the
of Malaria, builds up and gives tone and vi'or to the entire system by its
fine tonic effects. Malaria is a blood disease, and S. S. S. cure3 it because;
it is a perfect blood purifier. Book on the blood and any medical advice
