Will Not Cut Force Fifteen men
have been laid off at the Silvis shops
of the Rock Island and as a result a
report is freely circulated that the offi
cials have resumed the policy of de
creasing the -force. Such a policy is
vigorously denied at the shops. "There
is plenty of work here and instead of
decreasing the force we are gradually
increasing it," js the statement given
out from the superintendent's office.
"Some men of mediocre ability were
laid off to make room for experienced
men, and this probably accounts for
the rumor. Three engines were turn
ed out complete for service from the
shops today. All of them underwent
heavy repairs. There are 48 engines
in the shops at th present time and
GO engines are in the yards awaiting
their turn in the shop. This gives
some idea of the work ahead of us."

The first symptom of Contagions Blood Poison is usually a little sore or tilcer,
which is quickly followed by a red rash on the skin, swollen glands in the
groin, falling hair, ulcerated mouth and throat, and often copper colored
splotches on different parts of the body. As the blood becomes more fully
contaminated with the poison, pustular eruptions and sores break out on
the flesh, and in extreme cases the nerves and bones are attacked and the
finger nails drop off. Then the sufferers find themselves diseased from head
to foot with this humiliating, vile and destructive poison. No other disease
is so highly contagious ; many an innocent person has been inoculated by
handling the clothing or using the toilet articles of an infected person.
There is but one certain, reliable cure for Contagious Blood Poison, and that
is S. S. S. It attacks the disease in the right way by going down into the
poison out of j'our blood before it permanently wrecks your health. We
have a home treatment book on the disease which we will send free to all
who wish it, and in addition our physicians will give without charge any
medical advice needed. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CA.
