For the second time in a few months
a lloline woman has been bound and
gagged and her Lome ransacked by a
burglar. The latest victim is Mr. II.
A. Keys, wife of a former resident of
this city, who was ovcrixjwered by a
man late Saturday night while at home
alone, gagged and bound and the house
ransacked. Had it not been for the
fact that the victim had seen the
stranger prowling about the place ear

husband by telephone, the result might
have been serious. The husband noti

the home. He ransacked the place,
but found only a small sum of money.
An apron was torn .to provide band

IN THE CHURCHES.
-Itching-, disng-urin eruptions, rashes, boils, etc., as well as pimples,
black-heads and rough, scaly skins, show the presence of some irritating-
humor in the blood. These acids and humors with which, the blooci is miea
are beinjr constantly thrown off through the pores and glands, and the skin
is kept in a feverish, diseased and unsightly condition. Nothing applied
externally can change the condition of the blood or prevent the outflow of
Doisons and acids : only constitutional treatment can do this. The countless
washes, salves, lotions, etc., that are used cannot reach the humor-laden
blood and are, therefore, useless, except for the temporary comfort and clean
liness they afford. The acid poison in the blood, which is the cause of the
trouble, must be removed before a cure can be effected. S. S. S. is a real
blood purifier, possessing all the requirements to neutralize and remove the
humor from the circulation. It completely eradicates every trace of the
poison and restores this vital fluid to its natural state of purity S. S. S. cools
the acid-heated blood so that instead of pouring out acrid matter on ine sicin
it feeds and nourishes it with health-sustaining- properties, and the eruptions
and diseases of the skin pass away. Book on bkin Diseases and medical
