Mr. Moore was born in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, "the land
of Evangeline," but spent most of hi3 early life in Boston, where he
prepared to enter the divinity school at Harvard, his parents having
" ait out a career in the pulpit for him. But he early developed a
liking for the stage, and gave up his theology for the study of
Shakespeare and the legitimate drama. The late Thomas W. Keene
gave him his first training in the hard school of experience, and he
afterwards served with Edwin Booth, John McCullough, Frederick
Warde, Loui3 James and Stuart Robson in Shakespearean plays.
After this excellent training on the legitimate stage he was starred
for a period of five years playing Agustu3 Thomas' "The Burglar."
jHe then joined the Frohman "Diplomacy" company and played the
part of Julian Beaucaire. He was for a time leading man with
Robert Downing and then took a turn at the stock business, playing
leads with the Alcazar and Grand Opera House companies, San
Francisco, and later accepted a flattering offer from the Thanhouser
company of Milwaukee where he remained for three years. Then
followed the principal stock theatres in Philadelphia, Nashville,
, ; Toronto, Chicago, Pittsburg and the Yorkville Stock Company in New
, ,York City. He ha3 played over 1,000 different leading roles during

HIS THE GERMS
Through the blood, diseases are carried from one generation to another.
Parents transmit them to their children, and so it goes on down the family
line for years and years unless the taint is removed from the blood. Espe
cially is this true of Scrofula, for it is a disease that is "bred in the bone,"
and unless the blood is purified and every trace of the trouble removed the
miserable disease will finally undermine the entire health and wreck the
life of its victim. The usual symptoms of Scrofula are enlarged glands or
tumors about the neck, which often burst and become discharging ulcers,
weak eyes, Catarrh of the head and throat, skin diseases, etc. The trouble
being so firmlj' intrenched in the blood often attacks the bones, resulting in
White Swelling, or hip disease, while a waxy, pallid appearance of the skin,
loss of strength and energy, and often lung affections, show that the disease
is entirely destroying the bright red corpuscles and rich, nutritive qualities
of the blood. Scrofula being a constitutional disease, one affecting the
entire circulation, must be treated with a remedy that builds up and
strengthens every part of the system, which has so long been denied the
strength and nourishment it should have received from the blood. S. S. S.
is the best of all blood purifiers and the greatest of all tonics, and is therefore
the ideal remedy for Scrofula. S. S. S. searches out and destroys all germs,
taints and poisons, gives strength, richness and vigor to the blood and cures
Scrofula permanently. It so thoroughly removes the trouble from the blood
that no signs of it are ever seen again, and posterity is started out in life
with a clean, pure blood supply, which is their rightful inheritance. S. S. S.
while thorough, is gentle in its action, and the healing vegetable ingredients
which compose it build up every part of the svstem. Book on the blood
