One cf the most encouraging features
of a cure made by S.S.S. (Swift's Specific)
18 V,8,Permanvicy. Of all diseases, it is
well known that those cf the blood are
tne most obstinate, and therefore the
most difficult to cure. The medical
profession, in fact, have virtually ad?
mitted that a real, deepseated blood
disease is beyond their skill.
Of course, their admission is not made
in so mauy words, but actions speak
louder than words, and their inability to
cure, after mouths and often years of
treatment, is sufficient evidence that dis?
eases of the blood cannot be cured by
doctors. Their mercurial mixtures, al
taough taken faithfully, only cover up
uC 8ymptoms of the disease, inducing
the patient to feel that he is being cured;
but when he is sooner or later seized
with stiff joints, pain in the bones, etc.,
the evidence of the doctor's patchwork
is conclusive. Such results cannot be ex?
pected from the use of S. S. S. Being
5>urely vegetable, containing no harm
ul mineral ingredients, it is the only
bloody remedy which acts on the true
principle of forcing the disease from
the system, building up rather than
tearing down the health. No loss of
hair, no stiff joints, no decrepit mercu?
rial wrecks result from the use of S.S.S.
H. L. MYERS.
Mr. H. L. Myers,of 100 Mulberry street,
Newark, N.J., made the mistake of re?
lying upon remedies based upon mineral
ingredients, and for the hundreds of
dollars which he invested received only
disappointment in return. He says :
?'I was nfllicted with a terrible blood
disease, which was in spots at first, but
afterwards spread all over my body.
These soon broke out into sores, aud it
is easy to imagine the suffering I en?
" Before I became convinced that
the doctors could do no good I had
spent a hundred dollars, which was
really thrown away. I then tried vari?
ous patent medicines, but they did not
reach the disease. When I had finisi?ed
my first bottle of S.S.S., I was greatly
improved and was delighted with the
result. The large red splotches on my
chest began to grow paler aud smaller,
and before long disappeared entirely. I
regained my lost weight, became strong?
er, aud my appetite greatly improved.
I was soon entirely well, and my skiuas
clear as a piece of glass."
S.S.S. is a sure cure for all manner
of blood diseases, and disappointment
never results from its use. It is
and one thousand dollars will be paid
for proof that it contains a particle of
mercury, potash,orothermineral. S.S.S.
is sold by all druggists.

BAN'S PRIVATE MARK
FOUND ON A MOSQUITO, IT SAVED
Neither Knlfo Nor Uraudlus Iron Wa*
Used on That Ranch, as the Owner Was
a Pretty Pair Shot and Always Kept In
"Theui was pretty good shots." said
tho old sheep raiser whon tho boys had
finished telling about souio glues ball
shooting they hud done at tho gun olnb
tournament, "but^olks nowadays don't
do no sbootin liko they did a fow years
ago. Thero was Dan Hardin now, who
run a sheep ruuoh in west Texas in
1881; bo could shoot."
"Pretty good shot, was ho?" asked
tho hoys, to draw tho old 111uu out
"Well, he was a good, fair shot for
them timos and locality. A Colt's 45
was Dun's favorite. He run about 0,000
sheep and a good many onttlo aud
horses. Tho ranchers all marked the
ears of their stock, each man in n dif?
ferent way, to distinguish their proper?
ty. Dun's murk wub a holo in tho left
ear and un undcrbit in tho right, and
ho never ullowed u knife to bo used on
his ranch. Ho marked every animal
himself with bis six shooter, und he
never made n mistuko. It was a sight
to see him gull?pin across the prairie
ou his mustang after a bunch of lambs
or a ronnd up of spring calves, a-plaoiu
his murks with bis -15 and never varyin
u sixteenth of nu inch from where they
belonged. Dun marked moro mavericks
than unybody olso in the country put
"From practiciu so much Dan got to
bo n first rate shot. Ho used to rido
along in his past uro und put his murk
on tho coyotos und jack rabbits just to |
keep his hand in. It got so that nine
times out of ten when a man killed a
deer with bis Winchester ho would find
u hole in its loft and an undcrbit in its
right ear, und he'd always send Dan
over a quarter of venison when ho got
it homo. I seeu Dan win u bet of $50
ono day from u tenderfoot. Wo was
ridin ulong the road und wo seen tho
ground u-humpin up where a inolo was
Bhovin along out of sight under tho
earth. Dau made his proposition, tho
tenderfoot took him up, and Dan's old
45 went off a couplo of times. Wo dug
tho mole up, and thero was tho marks
in his ears right where they belonged.
After awhile I don't think thero was a
living thing on Dan's ranch except bis
wife's that didn't have his mark in its
''This habit of Dan's got him out of
u pretty bad scrape ono time. Along
about 1S82, when freo range commenced
gettin scarce, the fence cutters got to
cuttiu the wire fences around tho pas?
tures and give tho sheep men lots of
trouble. Dan's hud been cut half a
dozen times, and ho was mad. One day
ho rodo out without his gun and saw a
low down rustler named Tompkius
slicin his wires liko fiddlestriugs with
a pair of nippers. Tonipkins got on his
horse and let out, and Dan rodo back to
his ranch aud got bis gun. Ho struck
out on Tompkius' trail und overhauled
him about sundown in tho little town
that was tho county seat. Dan shot him
quietly and was about to get a cup of
coffee and start back home when ho
was surprised by the sheriff's arrestin
him. You sec, that was about tho time
tho law and order gang got to ruisin
Cain in the west and tryin to set down
on promiscuous sbootin and personal
liberty. They scared up a judge and it
jury somowere und held a kind of court
right away to try Dan. Tonipkins had
a lot of friends in town, among the boss
thieves and free grassers, and they
come in by the dozen and swore that
Tompkius hadn't been out of town for
a week, and that Dan's story about his
cuttiu the fence didn't go. Dan had no
witnesses, and it began to look kind of
funny for him. They had Tompkius
laid out on u table in the conrtroom.
"Directly Dan went over and looked
pretty sharp ut Tompkius, aud then ho
asked one of tho deputies to go out to a
little jewelry storo across the street and
bring n magnifying glass. The deputy
went and got it, und Dan handed it to
tho judgo and asked him to step down
and look tit something a minute. Thero
was a mosquito with his bill fast in
Tompkius' ear, und Dan asked the judgo
to tuke u good look ut it with the glass.
The judge did so, und blest if that mos?
quito didn't have n holo in its left and
nu undcrbit hi its right ear, as shorn as
I'm sitting iiere. Everybody knew
Dan's mark, aud tho court was con?
vinced that Tompkius must have been
prowlin round his ruuoh. It w;w "what
yon would cull good circumstantial evi?
dence, and ten minutes afterward Dan
was on his way home."
Thero was :i little silcueo among tho

PEOPLE OF THE DAY.
Ono of the most promiuent of tho
Klondike heroes is Olnreuco B?rry, who
brought out of tho Yukon goldflolds
abont $135,000 worth of gold dust and
nuggots and is part owner in five pay?
ing claims near Dawson City. Three
years ago * B?rry was a poor farmer in
Fresno, Cal. When ho first heard of the
Yukon goldflolds, ho sold ont and went
to Alaska. Ho passed his first winter at
Forty Milo camp, whoro he worked a
claim that paid him but littlo. Then ho
returned to California and married Miss
Etliel Bush. On March 15, 1890, ho
and his bride started for tho goldflolds.
They reached thoro after a hazardous
trip of 30 days over the mountains and
frozen wastes, and when tho striko on
tho Klondike was iuado Berry was on
hand to locato a rich claim. Ho is 30
years old now, and tho prospects aro
that beforo he is livo years older ho will
bo a millionaire.

Henry C. Hansbrough of North Dako?

but for her talents. Sho has written a

of her short fiction stories, "A Fashion?
able Hero," appearing in ono of tho
leading magazines for August. Miss
Chapman is also accomplished as a
painter and as a musician. Sho lives
with her widowed mother in Washing?
ton most of tho time. Senator Hans?
brough is a widower of 49 aud met Miss
Chapman less than three months ago.
It was a case of love at first sight, and
tho announcement of tho senator's en?
gagement followed soon after.
Father of the Yukon.
Jack McQnc8teu, known in Alaska as
tho Father of tho Yukon, well deserves
tho title, for he has beeu in that frozen
rcgiou for 20 years. IIo is not ono of
those who have come out with big piles
of gold dust and nuggets. Neither is ho
among the unfortunates who got noth?
ing at all, but in spito of his long ex?
perience in gold hunting Jack McQuos
tou was unfortunate in locating a claim
ill Kloudiko. When last heard from,
JACK M'QOESTEN, FATHER OK TUE YUKON,
however, ho had an interest in several
claims which will probably net him a
handsome fortune. McQuesten went to
Alaska as aH cmployeo of the Hudson
Hay company, but from trading went
to prospecting. Ho has grub staked
many a poor miner and is known all
through tho region for his numerous
acts of generosity. Ho is the founder of
tho Alaska Pioneers' society, members
of which must have lived for seven
COnseoutive years in tho territory.
A widow continues, no matter how
deep her mourning may be, to wear
her engagement and wedding rings.
Alter six months tho long crape veil is
thrown back from thofaco. In this con?
nection Tho Ladies' Homo Journal says:
After six months tho long crapo veil is
thrown back from the face. So called
mourning bats are not good form for
widows. After the veil is laid aside a
small, dull silk bonnet is worn, and
alter that all blac k, and then colors if
wished. In extremely warm weather a
widow may wear dresses of plain black
dimity or lawn, with cuffs and collar of
slwer white lawn.
