NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY
BY IMPURITIES IN THE BLOOD
If Old Sores were due to outside influences, or if the cause was confined
Btrictly to the diseased flesh around .the ulcer, then external treatment and
simple cleanliness would cure them. But the trouble is in the blood, which,
has become unhealthy and diseased, and keeps the sore open by continually
discharging into it the impurities and poisons with which the circulation is
filled. This poisonous condition of the blood may be the remains of some
constitutional trouble; the effect of a- long spell of sickness, or because the
natural refuse of the body, which should pass off through the proper avenues,
has been left in the system and absorbed into the blood. Again, the cause
may be hereditary ; but it does not matter how the poison becomes intrenched
in the blood, the fact that the sore will not heal is evidence of a deep underly
ing cause. Salves, washes, lotions, etc., may cause the place to scab over
temporarily, but the blood is not made any
purer by such treatment, and soon the old
inflammation and discharge will return and
the sore be as bad or worse than before.

PURELY VEGETABLE makes a permanent cure. S. S. S. enriches

His refusal was thought suspicious,

How Kingfishers Perish.
Dreadful is the death of the stately
kingfisher. A hard winter is his cer-J
tain doom. Long observation seems to
indicate the birds do not migrate, and
from having to enter the water for
their prey in winter their dripping feet
quickly become incased in Ice. As in
hard weather it is only possible for
them to alight either on snow or ice or
in water. It is easy to see how the Ice
around their feet would quickly accu
mulate and bring about a lingering
death. London Globe.

Arbiter and Arbitrary.
If an arbitrator is chosen to end a
dlsp'ute, says the Loudon Chronicle,
there Is no reason to dread that his de
cision would lie arbitrary, though the ,
two words are very. near relatives. An'
arbiter, the Latin word which used
to be more common as English than
it Is now, meant by derivation simply .
"one who went to" something to ex
amine it. and so at first a spectator ot j
witness. Then In Roman law it assum
ed, the technical sens of an umpire.
Eut a "judicum," the legal decision In
a case with regard to a definite sum
of money, for instance, was distin
guished from an arbitrium, a legal
decision as to an uncertain sum which
had to be determined; hence arbitrary
acquired the sense of uncertain, ca
pricious. A Brutal Definition.
