With Telling Effect
Gives Conscious Evidence of
Its Direct Action.
B. S. S., the famous blood purifier, almost
talks is It sweeps its way through the cir
culation. Its action Is so direct that very
often In some forms of skin aflliction the
appearance of the eruptions changes over
night, the itch and reducss are gono and
recovery begins immediately.
As a matter of fact, there is one ingredi
ent In S. S. S. which serves the active pur
pose of stimulating each cellular part of
the body to the healthy and judicious selec
tion of its own essential nuiriment. That
is why it regenerates the blood supply ; why
It has such a tremendous Influence in over
coming eczema, rash, pimples, and all skin
And In regenerting the tissues S. S. S.
has a rapid and positive antidotal effect
upon all those Irritating influences -that
cause rheumatism, sore throat, weak eyes,
loss of weight, thin, pale cheeks, and that
weariness of muscle and nerve that is gen
erally experienced as spring fever. Get a
bottle of S. S. S. at any drug store, and In
a few days you will not only feel bright and
energetic, but you will be the picture of
new life. S. S. 8. Is prepared only In the
laboratory of The Swift Specific Co., 534
Swift Bldg., Atlanta, Ga., who maintain a
very efficient Medical Department, where all
who have any blood disorder of a stubborn
nature may write freely for advice and a
special book of Instruction. S: S. S. Is sold
everywhere b~y dlrug stores, department and

Berlin, Feb. 7.-Grand adinIral
von Koester, president of the Ger.
man Navy league, in an address at
Kilo university loday, discussed con
diti-ons governing the part to be play
ed by the German navy in the war.
le declared the relative strength of
the German fleet compared to the
Anglo-Frenhi l&ussin fleet is per
Imps one to four. The British, no
added, perhaps estimated German
us't for battle so highly that they
had said to themselves:
"Some day they will come and we
shall be abel to assume battle in a
situation favorable for us."
That the offensive spirit of the Ger
mans is greater than the British, the
admiral continued, can justly be as
sumed when one recalls that the Ger
mans took an offensive against Eng
land's east coast, whereas the Eng
lish have not dared to approach the
"We are full of the firmest confl
dence in our fleet," said Admiral von
Koester, "but we know that a sea bat
tle. means death or victo'y and that
a -destroyed fleet can not be replaced
in the course of the war even if it lasts
for years. We therefore must be cau
tious and allow ourselves to be in
cited to no deed which might eventu
ate in our defeat.
"For what would be the situation
if a sea battle took place tomorrow
in which each one of our ships took
a hostile ship to the bottom with da
and perhaps smo other? We would
be without a fleet and England could
proceed gradually in its attempts
against our coasts. Our coast from
i'mden to Memel would be most se
verely threatened. Landing attemti
if they were suficiently well prpeared,
could succeed at places most uncom
fortable for us.
"Our fleet must protect us under
all conditions and may accept battle
only when it can reckon on victory."
Admiral von Koester declared the
course of the naval war up to the
present had caused him great suir
prise. He added the British secre
tary of state for the navy seven years
ago declared that Germany would
wake some morning and find her fleet
gone. le also recalled the utterance
of Winston Spencer Churchill last
S'eptember in which he said that if
the German warships did not conic
and fight they woul be "dug out like
rats in a hole."
"Ateit t000 sayings," Admiral von
Koester declared, "one expected other
things from the British fleet. than it
has accomplished. I am almost. tempt
ed to believe the spirit of Nelson no
longer lives in it."
The admiral said the fact that Ad
iiral Fisher, the British first sea lord,
hadl*rnot, changed the plans that were
)einrg purrmsued by Prince Louis of IHat
tenoorig, the former first sea lord,
"c'an be taken as showing England's
