THE SACRED CODFISH.
Famous Emblem That Adorns the
A codfish carved in wood bangs on
the white mahogany wall of the Massa
chusetts ball of representatives lu the
statehouse in lioston. IJetween two
classic pillars it occupies a place of
houor, directly opposite the desk of
the presiding officer. This wooden fish
is the renowned original sacred codfish
of tiie Old Colony, and it has assisted
at the deliberations of the lawmakers
of Massachusetts for more th;:n a cen
tury and a half, gathering sanctity year
by year. It Is a relic of the old build
ing which preceded the present State
house, and great Is the dignity of this
souvenir of colonial art and Industry.
The following account of its origin
is given in n R-oston paper:
"Cantain John Welch of F.oston was
the creator and carver of the celebrat
ed fish. He was a wood carver of re
nown for bis time and in 1717 estab
lished bis business in Dock square. He
belonged to the Ancient and Honorable
Artillery company and afterward lie
came its captain. Ho was called upon
to contribute to the decoration of the
colonial assembly hall, and as at that
period codfish was the colony's main
article of export Captain Welch con
ceived the idea of Immortalizing the
king fish of the Massachusetts waters.
When completed the carving was fin
ished off and colored so as to lie a fac
simile of life and was bung on the
wall of the assembly ball."

There is no other part of our physical system upon which so much
depends as upon the blood. The muscles, nerves, bones, sinews, skin, and
other portions of the body are sustained, developed and enabled to perform
their different duties, because they are supplied with nourishment and
healthful properties through the circulation. In various ways the blood
becomes contaminated and polluted. A sluggish, inactive conditiou of the
system, and torpid state of the avenues of bodily waste, will leave the refuse
and waste matter of the body to sour and form uric and other acids, which
are absorbed into the blood and Rheumatism, or some itching", disfiguring
6Kin disease is tne result. Muddy, sallow complexions, eruptions, splotches,
pimples, etc., all show that some humor ha3 taken root in the circulation
and rendered it sour and unfit for nourishing the body. There is scarcely
any disease which cannot be traced to the blood. Often the disease-tainted
blood of parents is handed down to children and their lives are a continual
battle against disease in some form, usually of a scrofulous nature. Rheu
matism, Catarrh, Skin Diseases. Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison,
etc., are all deep-seated blood troubles, and until this vital fluid is purified
they cannot be cured. For all blood diseases S. S. S. is the best remedy ever
put upon the market. This great medicine is made of roots, herbs and barks
cf recognized blood-purif ying and building-up properties. It goes down into
the circulation and removes all poisons, impurities and humors, supplies
the blood with the healthful properties it needs and completely cures blood
diseases of every kind. S. S. S. cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula,
Skin Diseases, Sores and Ulcers, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., because it
purifies the blood. Book on the blood and medical advice free.

Many quotations came from the
works of Thales, the Greek philosopher
and one of the seven wise men. It was
he who said. "Know thyself," "Few
worfls are a sign of prudent judgment,"
"Search after wisdom and choose what
? most worthy," "There is nothing
more beautiful than the world," "Time
Is the wisest thing, for it invents nnd
discovers all things." He also said
that It was the hardest thing in the
world to know oneself and the easiest
to admonish another. In his youth
Thales was urged to marry, but he
said. "It Is too soon," and later In life
upon being urged again he said, "It is
