Invaded the political field, there was
tumultuous applause. But it was no
heartier than that which greeted
Blount when he roe to present the
railroad's aid of the argument.
During the Journey from the capital,
which hod consumed the nJ?ht and the
greater portion of the forenoon, he
had prepared his speech. His argu
mentthe one unanswerable argument,
as It seemed to him was the existence
of a law which presumed to limit the
earnings of a private or at most a
quasi public corporation, without mak
ing a correeponding regulation limit
ing the cost of such a corporation's
service. Upon this foundation he was
able to build a very fair structure of
The Judge, bis opponent, was a rath

in flights of spread eagle eloquence
and whose appeal was to the emotions
and the lmpatoe of his audience.
Blount, on the other hand, made a
typical lawyer's speech," calmly -dellv.
ered. logical In every syllogism and
appealing frankly to the intelligence
of his hearers. In every period of it
he was greeted with . generous ap
plause, and at the close of the meet
ing he had what the editor of the local
paper railed In his issue of the follow
ing day "an ovation."
Steuchfleld and his fellow commit
teemen, escorted him to the midnight
train, and no one in the crowd of con
gratulators was more enthusiastic than
the opposition chairman.
"That waa a great speech, Mr.
Blount," he said at parting. "If you
can go all over the state making as
rood talks aa von have made here to
night you'll tie ns all up in a bard !
knot But McVlckar won't let you da
it, not by a long shot."
Blount laughed. "There are no
strings tied to me, Mr. Steuchfield." he
declared. "This is a new deal, and I
am the dealer. Come down to tb?
capital and let me convince you that
we are out for open publicity and a
square deal for every man, including
the railroad man.
"All right,'' was the cordial reply.
"I'll be down along some of these
days, and If -yoo eaa show me that

Five minutes later the branch train
pulled out. and the chairmen and bis
fellow committeemen gave the depart
ing joint debater three cheers ami ali
other. When the red tall fights of the
train had disappeared around the first
curve Steuchfleld turned to his fellow ;
"Well, boys," he said, with a grm
that went from ear to ear. "I guess
we did It up ail right and according to
orders. I don't know' what sort of
game the Hon. Dave Sagebrush la
playing this time, but whatever he
says goes, and 1 reckon we gave the
young man a right pleasant time.
Anyway, he seemed to think so."
Blount did not reach his office la the
capital until the afternoon of the sec
ond day. His first care was to call
up the Inter-Mountain, and when the
clerk disappointed him by telling him
that his father. Mrs. Blount and their
guest had gone out to Wartraee Hall
he counted it as one more opporrunity
mfcwed and settled down to business.
First In the memoranda on his desk
was a stenographer's note asking him
to make an appointment with one S.
P. Hathaway, whose address was the
Inter-MountrJn hotel. Since the note
was marked "important" he told the
clerk to cal up the hotel at once, and
in due time the gentleman, who, the
stenographer said, had called several
times during the day, made his ap
pearance at the doer of the private of
fice. It was a mutual shock. Blount rec
ognized instantly his companion of the
Omaha-Aretas Pullman smoking com
partment and the man who had doubt
less sent the three highbinders after
him on the night of mysteries and who
had been the prime mover in the se
ries of singular incidents ending in the
midnight homecoming to Wartraee

"You nw-dn't be," laughed Blount
easily. "I'll admit that it was partly
my fault, Mr. Hathaway. What cun
I do for you tlay?"
By tkU time the lumber king had re
covered Ms breath and some measure
of his composure.
"Great Scott!" he said. "If you had

Blount. Is that ri.L-ht?
"It Is tind it In't." was the quick
reply. "The railroad company is not
in politics m tins carnpalRn as a po-
liticnl factor, I mean. What we are
trying to do what we mean to do Is
to lav the entire matter pir.inlv and
felrly before the people vrith a plea

who was evidently suffering from n
fresh attack of embarrassment. "But
there ere certain little business mat-
ters which have to enter into every
campaign, and your company, like my
own, is obliged to take cojrnizcnce of
them. Two years ogo the railroad
neorle found it advisable and profit

wiih us which was to our mutual ad
vantage, and I called to see If it could
not be made again."
Blount Fat back in his chair, and the
conciliatory buii'.e disappeared. "State
the facts, if you please, Mr. Hatha
way," he said curtly.
"Well, It was like this. As you know.
we have a great m.iay sawmills scat-
tered around la different places in the
state, and we employ a good many
men. While our eiriloyees arc resi
dents of the state, they are not citi
zens in' the eense that they take any
active interest in state politics. They
may be here this year and up among
the Oregon redwoods next year and
somewhere ele the year following.
That being the case, when they vote
at all they naturally t.sk us how we
would liks to have thorn vote."
"Go on, said Blount.
"Well, as I say, such being the ease,
we are- able to control at least four
and protmbly five of the legislative
districts In tfc's state. The control is
worth something to yoor people, and
tn the last election that fact was rec-
gnlzed. Since the Twin Buttes Lum- j

"Let me be quite clear upon that

complication, but be must come to
some decision. "Let us get down to

"Of course I dont," was the. ready

OF ALL TO MI.CS
GREATEST OF ALL
Any system that needs a tonic needs also a blood purifier, for it is
the weakened and impure condition of the circulation that is responsible
for the run-down state of health. We have only to recognize the
importance of pure, rich blood in preserving health, to realize the danger
of a weakened or impure circulation. The great majority of persons
are rapidly coming to understand the importance of preventing disease;
they know that a poorly nourished system cannot resist germs and
microbes, and that a tonic which purifies and enriches the blood will
often ward off a serious spell of illness later on.
That Spring is the most trying season on the health is a fact well
known to every one. It is the time of year when our constitutions are
required to stand the greatest strain, and unless the system receives
the proper amount of blood nutriment the health is bound to be affected.
The general bodily weakness, tired, worn-out feeling, fickle appetite,
poor digestion, etc., come directly as a result of weak, watery blood.
If you need a tonic, you need a medicine that has real blood puri
fying properties. A great many so called tonics are mere nerve stim
ulants, often producing instantaneous exhilarating effect, but acting
with decided injury on the system. If your system is weak and run
down you can only tone it up by supplying an increased amount of
blood nutriment, and this can come only through pure, rich blood.
Any tonic which does not purify the blood is dangerous, because it leaves
the impurities in the circulation to constantly prey upon the health.
S. S. S. is the greatest of all tonics because it is the greatest of all
blood purifiers ; and it is the one medicine you can rely on to supply
inc system wun inc ocsi ionic
effects and at the same time thor
oughly purify the blood. The
use of S. S. S. at this time may
save you from a long spell of
sickness, and it will certainly pre
pare you for the strain of the long
not Summer. Many people have
put off using a tonic until the sys
tem became so weakened it could
not resist disease, and have paid
for the neglect later on with a
spell of fever, malaria, or some
other debilitating sickness. S. S. S.
is Nature's ideal tonic and blood
purifier. It does not contain a
particle of mineral in any form,
nor does it contain any of the
deleterious nerve stimulants that
are used in so many medicines
called tonics. S. S. S. tones up the stomach and digestion, rids one of
the tired, worn-out feeling, improves the appetite and digestion, and in
every way contributes to the upbuilding and strengthening of the
entire system. S. S. S. is absolutely safe for persons of any age, and
all who are in need of a tonic will find this medicine exactly suited to
their needs. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA. OA.

FEELS BETTER IN EVERY WAY
S. S. & is a good medicine. I keep
it in the house all the while. It is an
excellent tonic to give strength to the
system and tone to all the physical
members. It gives appetite and
energy and makes one feel better in
every way. I have found it also an
excellent blood punier. For months
I was troubled with an itching skin
eruption on the face, and tried many
specialists and many remedies to get
a cure, but S. S, S. is the only medicine
that seemed to relieve. I am now free
of this eruption. I think a great deal
of your medicine, believing it to be
the best blood purifier and tonic known
to the world today.
