No matter in what way an old sore or ulcer first commenced,
whether from a wound, cut, or bruise, or from the ulceration of a wart,
' pimple or mole, or even if it came without apparent reason, the fact
that it does not heal shows that bad blood is responsible for the place.
While the circulation remains impure and polluted, the nerves and
tissues of the flesh around the place are constantly being fed with
. unhealthy matter and the fibres are thus prevented from knitting to
gether and healing. Purify the blood and the place MUST heal, its
cause having been removed. S.S.S. cures old sores and chronic ulcers
because.it is the greatest of all blood purifiers. It removes from the
circulation every taint or impurity, and so enriches the blood that it
feeds and nourishes the tender, sensitive flesh, causes a knitting
together of all fibrous tissue and thus heals the place naturally and
permanently. Book on Sores and Ulcers and any medical advice
desired sent free to all who write and request iL S.S.S. is sold at

The New England style of archltec
ture gives way to more modern con
ceptions with stubborn slowness. Most
of the country churches are redolent
with suggestion of the storied past,
and the echoes from the pulpits often
serve to strengthen the illusion. The
oid fashioned gentleman and lady are
present at every church service and at
every village function. We cling to
the memories and the habits of the
past, and by so doing we exasperate
the more progressive among our
younger people. Boston Chamber of

Here is an old Turkish riddle which

14 YEARS AFTER
AN ILLINOIS FARMER GIVES
TO DR. WALSH
For the last fourteen years I have had
perfect health. I am now fifty years of
age, and I feel young, active and vigor
ous. I can do a day's work as well as a
man of 20. I owe it all to the Drs. Walsh,
the great Davenport specialists. They
cured me. They restored me to health
and strength when I thought I would
never have a well day again; in fact, I
felt as if I had not long to live. For
some years I had suffered from catarrh
and general breakdown. I was all played
out, could not work, had dizzy and faint
spells and was very nervous. I had back
ache, weak kidneys, pain in back of the
neck, poor appetite, gas and a heavy feel
ing in stomach, indigestion, cold hands
and feet. At night I could not sleep well
and had bad dreams. In fact, I felt like
a wreck. I never got any benefit from any
treatment until I went to the Drs. Walsh.
Goodness knows I tried enough different
kinds of treatment before I went to them.
When I called at the Drs. Walsh's office in
Davenport, at 124 West Third street, I
admit I didn't have much hope, although
I had beard so much of the Drs. Walsh.
After taking several months' treatment
I was a new man and completely restored
to health. Their charges were very reas
onable. CHARLES D. QUICK,
Results are the best proof of success.
You can see in Dr. Walsh's office, testi
monials from satisfied patients all over
this part of the country, including men,
women and children. Dr. Walsh has
had a large experience and great success.
He is a graduate of two medical colleges
and was formerly president of St. Anth
ony s Hospital. Hankers and business
men testify to his reliability. You can
have a thorough scientific examination
free of charge. Office hours are from 10
to 12 a. m. and 2 to 4:30 p. m. Also on
Tuesdays and Saturday evenings from 7
to 9 p. m. On Sunday mornings from 10
to 11 a. m. Dr. Walsh's office is at 124
