Woman Finally Recovers
From Nervous Breakdown
Impoverished nerves destroy many
people before their time. Often be
fore a sufferer realizes what the
trouble is, he is on the verge of a
complete nervous breakdown. It
is of the utmost importance to keep
your nervous system in good con
dition, as the nerves are the source
of all bodily power. Mrs. Anna
Kounz, 2ii Mechanic St., Pueblo,
"For many years I suffered from
nervous prostration; I was unable
to do any house work and doctors
failed to help me. Remedies I
tried from druggists did not do
me a particle of good. A neighbor
told my husband about
Dr. Mile Nervine
and he procured a bottle. After the
first few doses I showed a marked
improvement and after taking two
bottles I was entirely cured. I have
been perfectly well for years and
cannot praise Dr. Miles' Nervine
If you are troubled with loss of
appetite, poor digestion, weakness,
inability to sleep; if yon are in a
general run down condition and
unable to bear your part of the
fdatly grind of life, yon need something-
to strengthen your nerves.
You may not realize what is the mat
ter with yon, but that is no reason
why you shooid delay treatment.
Dr. Miles' Nervine
has proven its value in nervous dis
orders for thirty years, -and merits
a trial, no matter how many- other
remedies nave tailed to help yoa.

Trade between Porto Rico and con
tinental United States in the calendar
year just ended amounted to $72,000,
000, or 18 times as much as in 1897,
tbe year .preceding the annexation of
that island by the United. States. .The
precise .figures of the trade with Por
to Rico, are, according to the Decem
ber summary of commerce and fi
nance, recently issued by the bureau
of statistics, department of commerce
and labor, as follows: merchandise
sent to Porto Rico, $36,793,646; receiv
ed from Porto Rico, $35,446,186; a to
tal of $72,239,832. In 897, the last
year in which Porto Rico was foreign
territory, the figures were: Exports
thereto, $2,023,751; imports therefrom,
$1,943,251; a total of $3,967,002. Thus
shipments of merchandise to the is
land gained in the period from 1897 to
1911, $34,769,895, or about 1.720 Per
cent, while receipts of merchandise
therefrom . increased $33,502,935, or
1.725 per cent
The trade with Porto Rico since Its
annexation has grown more rapidly
than w,ith any other commercial com
munity of importance, and now ex
ceeds the value of our trade with
Spain, or China, or India; is nearly
equal to that with Argentina, and is
more than that with all British Oce
ania including Australia or with the
entire continent of Africa. During
the period since 3897 in which ship
ments from the United States to Por
to Rico increased 1,720 per cent ex
ports to Canada, with which our trade
has grown unusually rapidly in re
cent years, increased 300 per - cent,
those to Cuba 570 per cent, to Argen
tina 745 per cent, China 100 per cent,
Japan 175 per cent, Germany 117 per
cent, and to the United Kingdom, 11

, Rheumatism is caused by an exces of uric acid in the blood, which
gradually gets into the circulation because of indigestion, constipation, weak
kidney action, and other irregularities of the system which are sometimes
considered of no importance. This uric acid causes an inflamed and irritated
condition of the blood, and the circulation instead of nourishing the deferent
portions of the body, continually deposits into the nervea, muscles, tissues
and joints, the irritating pain-producing acid with which it is filled. , Rheu
matism can only be cured by a thorough cleansing of the blood, and this is
just what S. S. S. does. It goes down into the circulation, and by neutral
izing the nric acid and driving it front the blood, effectually and surely
removes the cause. S. S. S. strengthens and invigorates the blood so that
instead of a weak, sour stream, causing pain and agony thoughout the sys
tem, it becomes an invigorating, nourishing fluid, furnishing health and
vigor to every part of the body and relieving the suffering caused by this
disease. S. S. S. being a purely vegetable blood purifier, is the surest and
safest cure for Rheumatism in any of its forms. Book on Rheumatism and
any medical advice desired sent free to all who write.
