A new record was hung np by Fore
man Eric Carlson and five helpers at
the icing piant in the Rock Island
yards at Silvis yesterday morning,
when twenty-six refrigerator cai-s
were iced in one hour and twenty min

taken in to consideration that the reg

one car by eight men in three minutes.
The care were loaded with meat from

During the month of June, July and

rode out of the storm, without the
loss of life. Before the vessel reached
port every officer and seaman aboard
had learned from Brother Clark 'The
Old Ship of Zion," and they sang it
sonorously. It :ipivaled to the men of
the sea as no'hing else could. It seem

the devoted man who had brought it
to them and from a far-away land, and
many became worshippers of his God.
The crew wouldn't let Brother Clark
step off to the waiting lighter at port
until he had sung for 'hem one last
time. It was his farewell benediction
to the men who go down to the sea in

THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool. Aug. 21. Wheat opened
with a steady undertone, although val
ues were lower rto higher. The
firm American cables on Saturday
were offset here by the heavy Ameri
can shipments to Liverpool. Follow
ing the opening the market became ex
tremely nervous and advanced to
with the principal coverrlng in Octo
ber. This buying was stimulated by
private bullish cables from America.
Later a decline occurred, with profit
taking, and the advance was lost.
Selling was prompted by the heavier
world's shipments than expected, bet
ter reports from Russia, and a settle
ment of the railroad strike here.
There was. however, a very small In
quiry for forward shipments. At 1:30
p. m. the market was nervous and

and unchanged to higher than Sat

Contagious Blood Poison is responsible for a great many old hloo'l
troubles, such as scrofulous affections, skin eruptions, catarrhal
troubles, Rheumatism, ulcerating sores, etc. There is no such thing
as ridding ths system of these e:Fects by killing the poisonous germs.
Any medicine powerful enough to accomplish this would also destroy
many of the delicate linings and tissues, and wreck the constitution.
The only way to cure old 1 lood troubles is to REMOVE the cause from
the circulation, and for this purpose nothing is equal to S.S.S. It
goes into the blood, and drives out every taint and poison, and makes
this vital fluid pure, rich and nourishing. 5. 5. S. has long been known
as the greatest of all blood purifiers and many thousands have rid
themselves of old blood diseases by its use. It ALWAYS removes the
impurity from ths blood and cures these old disorders, whether inhef
ited or acquired. Book on the blood and any medical advice free
to all. S. S. S. is sold at drug stores.
