first steamboating there. He was born

The relation of the nerves and pen

melodramas of the season was "The
House of Mystery" at the Illinois Sat
urday. The company was large and
the stage equipment unusually com
plete. The company went from here
to Chicago for a run of several weeks.
Read Election Returns. Arrange
ments have been made to read election
returns at the Illinois theater tomor
row evening between the acts, in tha
presentation of "A Thorn In Her
One cf the Latest. "The Land of
Nod," one of the latest of the many
musical shows produced during the
past few years in Chicago, although
termed a musical fantasy, is in reality
an extravaganza. It comes to the Illi
nois theater Friday, Nov. 9. under the
direction of the Will J. Block Amuse
ment company for one night. As the
title indicates, the scenes are laid in
a mythical country, and the characters
are, with two exceptions, all imagina
tive or fanciful, which affords unusual
opportunity for elaborate scenic dis
play and costuming and the introduc
tion of eccentric characters. The story
is not dissimilar to Alice and Her Ad
ventures in Wonderland. The plot cen
ters around Bonnie, a little girl who
falls asleep and is carried to dream
land, which is a scenic novelty with
the most brilliant surroundings.
Woman In the Case. The woman in
the case, as exemplified in the latest
comedy drama success, "A Thorn in
Her Heart," Is a touching appeal to an
alarming condition that exists in so
ciety circles. The author has grasped
the comprehensive details with a mas
ter hand. At the Illinois Nov. 6.

Builds New Implement. An impor
tant addition has just been made to
the manufacture of the D. M. Sechler
Carriage company. The company will
begin at once the manufacture of ma
nure spreaders. It has made an ar
rangement with Stephen H. Carst, who
was superintendent for the American
Harrow company for 10 years, building
manure spreaders, to superintend the
construction of the new spreader. Mr.
Carst is one of the pioneers of the
spreader industry. He is the inventor
of the American spreader, and has ob
tained many patents on this class of
machines. He is the inventor of the
chain drivet the automatic return bot
tom and the means of regulating the
feed while the machine is in motion.
Mr. Garst has perfected a new machine,
remarkable in its simplicity and free
dom from complications, and combined
with the Black Hawk quality, will bo
a strong bidder for business. The com
pany has already provided for addi
tional factory space in anticipation of
a considerable increase in its volume
of business and expects to be shipping
spreaders soon after Jan. 1.
Another Has Scarlet Fever. Scarlet
fever has broken out in the home of
Charles P. Skinner. His little daugh
ter Alice has developed symptoms of
this ailment, and the house was put
under quarantine. Mr. Skinner had
his plans all made to depart for his
new home in Tucson, Ariz., but it is
feared that this unfortunate occurrence
may delay him a long time as well as
cause him considerable anxiety for his
little daughter. There are now prob
ably tight or ten cases of scarlet fever
in the city, and there is nothing to in
dicate that more than this usual num
ber will be found at one time during
this fall and winter. The scarlet fever
epidemic at East Moiine was brought
under control some time ago, and the
number of cases in that town is con

The demand for S. S. S. lias steadily increased since it was first placed
on the market until it is now recognized as the greatest of all blood purifiers.
It has won its way to success because IT CURES DISEASE, and
there are few homes where "S. S. S. for the blood ' is not a household saying.
As the blood is the very life of the body, nourishing and supplying strength
to every part, disease in some form is sure to follow when it becomes contam
inated Eczema Acne. Tetter, Boils, Pimples and the various skin affections
are due to an over-acid and impure blood-supply. Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Scrofula, Chronic Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all
deep-seated blood diseases and will continue to grow worse and more danger
