Is Strong Play. "David Corson."
Lottie Blair Parker's latest drama
was presented at the Illinois last ev
ening by a competent company. The
general verdict was that it is full:
equal to if not better and more power
ful than the author's other successful
plavs, "I'nder Southern Skies" and
"Way Down East." The story con
cerns a young Quaker who forsakes
his quiet home to follow a gipsy girl
and leads an irregular life for three
years. The closing scene shows his
return to the old simple life and to a
happiness that he has not known while
in the "world." The scenery is beau
tiful, that in the third act showing the
home of David Corson at New Orleans,
where he was living as a gambler,
bringing a ripple of applause. There
was no matinee here yesterday attet-
always for the cleanest. This season
he has more than surpassed anything
he has previously produced. Every
act in his show, every piece of his
scent ry, every bar of his music, is the
quintessence of direful attention. Of
the rt members of his company some
ire the same old faces who. by means
of their ability, have remained with
Mr. Field for years, while there are
new ones in the troupe who still have
their reputation to make.

EXTERNAL EVIDENCE OF MTERHAL POISON
Whenever a sore or tilcer refuses to heal, it is a sure sign of a diseased
condition, of the blood. The sore itself is simply an outside evidence of
some internal poison, and the only way to cure it is to remove the deep
underlying cause. Sores and Ulcers originate usually from a retention in
the system of bodily -waste matters and impurities. These should pass off
through the natural avenues of waste, but because of a sluggish condition of
the different members they are retained in the system to be taken up by the
blood. This vital fluid soon becomes unhealthy or diseased, and the
skin gives way in some weak place and a Sore or Ulcer is formed. The con
stantdrainage of impurities through a sore causes it to fester, grow red and
inflamed and eat deeper into the surrounding flesh, and often there is severe
pain and some discharge. S. S. S. is the remedy for Sores and Ulcers.
It is nature's blood purifier, made entirely
of vegetable matter, known to be specifics
for all blood diseases and disorders. S. S. S.
goes down to the very bottom of the
trouble, and removes the poison and im
pure matter, so that the sore is no longer
fed with impurities, but is nourished ana
cleansed with a stream of healthy, rich
blood. Then, the place begins to heal, new flesh is formed, the inflamma
tion subsides, and when S. S. S. lias thoroughly cleansed the circulation the
place heals pcrmanentK-. Special book on Sores and Ulcers and any medical
advice desired will be sent free to all who write. I
