It matters not from what cause the
blood becomes poisoned, it is impossi?
ble for the doctors to effect a cure.
Ibis class of disease has puzzled the
science of medicine for ages, aud the
same treatment that was employed
centuries, ago is now prescribed. Pot?
ash and mercury arc the component
parts of every doctor's prescription
for diseases of the blood.
Many of the so-called blood puri?
fiers arc based on potash and mercury.
In fact, S. S. S. (Swift's Specific) is
the only blood remedy that is guar?
anteed purely vegetable, and is the
only one that contains no harmful
ingredients. S. S. S. is the only blood
remedy that cures real blood diseases,
obstinate cases that physicians and
other remedies have faded to cure.
It never fails to cure a blood disease??
no matter bow deep-seated the case.
Miss Bf.ktha Wiiitwood.
Mr. H. Kuhn, of Marion, Kansas;
"About three years ago my grand
da lighter Hertha Wbitwood, was
thrown from a horse, receiving a
wound of the scalp. Under the treat?
ment of physicians the wound seemed
obstinate, and for several months re?
mained about the same, until it finally
became very angry looking, ami broke
out into a running sore. This soon
spread to other parts of the scalp, and
ran down the side of the neck, in?
creasing in severity, and fearfully
"After being constantly under a
physician for a year, and her condi?
tion a great deal worse than at first,
wc placed her under the care of the
faculty of a well-known hospital, but
even the treatment she received there
failed to arrest the terrible sore.
"Reading of the many cures of
blood troubles effected by S. S. s., we
decided to try it, and it relieved her
promptly. At first this remedy seemed
to increase the discharge, forcing out
the poison; this soon ceased altogether,
and the place began to heal. In a
few months she was entirely cured,
and scarcely a mark now remains
where the disease held full sway."
S. S. S. is the right remedy for all
blood diseases, and is the only cure
for Contagious Blood Poison, Scrofula,
Eczema, Cancer, Rheumatism, Ca?
tarrh, etc., no matter how deep-seated
the case. S. S. S. is guaranteed
and contains not a particle of mer?
cury, potash, or other mineral, which
means so much to all who know the
disastrous effects of these drugs.

Excitement Im Inteime.
Arkonsnns havo a Klondike of tliolr
own. In tho bayous that lino tho river
boundary of tho statu liavri been found?
not gold, but rich deposits of the II nest and
most valuable pearls. Tho discovery Is
now only n few weeks old, but already tho
excitement has spread so far that tho
paohut steamers leaving Memphis and Oth?
er points are crowded with pearl hunters,
who. like thugold hunters in Alaska, have
started out to seek thulr fortunes. Unllho
tho gold miner, the pearl hunter needs no
costly outfit. All he requires Is a ohnnou
at the shores of n shallow lake, or pond,
and an opportunity to poke around in tho
mud with n stick.
Tho pearls grow on the inside of the
shells of mussels, which tire ?o plentiful
in southern waters that thoy sometimes
impede navigation, ns at Mussel shoals in
tho Tennessoo rivor. Tholr formation Is
EUpposod to bo accidental, as in tho case of
those found in salt water oysters, being
dun to the taking in of a piece of grit
which becomes bulged in tho tlssuosof the
mussel and finally causes the pearl to bo
formed. Tho conditions, however, must
be just right, and in some places where
thore aro tho most shells no pearls havo
over been found, while in other places,
where there are but few shf 11s or none at
nil, the best pearls havo been picked up in
the largest quantities. Sometimos the
pearls havo been found still in the shells,
but oftener they have been found free.
Like other valuable discoveries tho peo?
ple who might havo made it long ago are
now disgusted at' their own blindness and
ncgligoucc. Pearls of large size and great
value havo been found In yours past at va?
rious places in tho Mississippi, hut al?

of tho Arkansas shore had often found

around carelessly, somotimes carrying

Not long ago a young man from St.
Louis went down Into tho bottom lands of
Arkansas for a week's hunting and fish?
ing. Ho left the train and civilization at
I hi Id Knob and penetrated Into the woods
US far as .Murphy lake, famous for its fish.
As he sat there on a log waiting for a bite
a smooth, shining pobblo, half buried in
the blaek mud, caught his eye. Ho knew
a little about precious stones and a hasty
examination almost convinced him that it
was a pearl. Tho native guide who was
with him offered to show hllu where a lot
of such stones could be found and in a few
moments the'young man had forgotten all
about fishing and was filling his pockets
with tho gems, much to tho amusement
of the guide, who assured him that the
people who lived in the vicinity had known
for a long time of the existence of the
stones, but had paid no attention to them.
That same night the fisherman sent to a
lapidary in St. Louis a few specimens and
by return mail came the assurance that
tho gems were pearls of excellent, quality,
unusual size and great value. In order to
bo doubly assured, howovor, he. sent two
or three stones to a Memphis jewelry firm,
olTering thorn for sale. Ho promptly re?
ceived a check for an amount much larger
than he had anticipated. Then he deter?
mined to follow the pearl fishing industry
for an Indefinite period. Ho kept his lucky
strike a secret and prospected all the near?

Haid Knob which seemed to he rich in
Ho was doing woll when his secret leaked
out. .lewelors in Memphis had received a
number of fine pearls from Arkansas, and
finally one lirm sent an agent, Mr. J. A.
O'Hnrn, to make inquiries. He no sooner
arrived in the pearl country than be sent
in his resignation, and at oneo made in -
rangements to conduct a pearl business of
his own on a largo scale. Thon the news
spread rapidly, mid now tho bayous of
Arkansas are. swarming with prospectors.
Capitalists have already leased all the
land around the two lakes on White river,
where tho lirst large finds were made, and
tho property is being guarded night and
day. A large cordon of special constables
has been engaged to drive men away from
tho shores, and at night tin' muddy banks
are illuminated by the daring light of gas
olino torches in order that unscrupulous
claim jumpers may not sneak in after
dark und carry off tho pearls. A large
dredger will soon be at operation on the
lake. This will scoop up the bottom of
thu lake and drop great shovelfuls into a
screen. As there is nothing but soft mud
and shells on the lake bottom the pearls
and shells can easily bo screened from the
Among tho army of prospectors which
now swarms through tho district Is Charles
Wilma, who represents a Memphis jewelry
firm. Ho ia buying up all the pearls that
tho natives have to oftor, and is probably
doing a better business than any of the
others. He travels on mulo hack, and is
making a thorough canvas of the bayou
district. Pearls havo not only been found
in the lakes, but tar inland, where they
havo been deposited in previous years when
the great river took a dilTorent course.
Tho possibility of Unding rich pearl di pou?

POWERFUL ELECTRIC FISH.
Ono of thu Terrors of Africa** S.ulto of
The wonders of Africa would seom to
bo without limit, according to tho reports
of J. E. S. Moore, who hits been vlowlng
somo of them. Mr. Moore's object iu vis?
iting Africa wns to study tho various nor- I
inal organisms that had been found to ex?
ist lu that famous but mysterious lako
known to natives and Europeans us Tan?
ganyika. Not only has Mr. Moore found
nil that hu sought, but so muoh besides
that tho zoologists atul geologists nro en?
thusiastic over his discoveries.
Mr. Moore after perilous journeying
gained sight of that lako which only sis
Europeans have ever looked upon, Lake
Kukwa. It wus only from a distance that
he saw it, to be sure, but that was a good
deal in Itself, for only two Europeans evor
reached tho shore, and nono has ever
floated Upon its waters. Of all tho African
la kos which aro known to civilization
there Is nono so surrounded by mystery as
Rukwn. Fatality seems to attach to it so
far t?3 Europeans nrj coueornod. and tho
natives look upon a whito man who strives
to reach It as a foolish mortal, bent upon
suicide. Mr. Moore had much tho same
Idoil and Ruined entire satisfaction by
viewing the lake In perspective.
It was In Lake Tanganyika that Mr.
Moore iiiudo his most roinnrkablo discov?
eries and incidentally solved what has been
n mystery, and a fearful one, to both
African and European. The tradition in
that section of Africa which surrounds
Tanganyika has many talcs of the prowess
<:f a gigantic llsh which would rush at the
paddles of n canoe, drag them from the
hands of the wioldcrs thereof, upset tho
eanoo and by mero contact kill tho strug?
gling humans who were east into the wil?
For once modern oxpcrlonco verified tin
uiont tradition. Mr. Moore learned that
not only did this great llsh es 1st, hut that
It performed exactly those deeds with
which it was credited. The solution of
the mystery Is simple. The big fish Is an
electric one. In smaller form it is com
uio:i in the South American rivers, where
swimmers hold It In mortal terror. The
African specimen, however, is of Brob
dlngnngian proportions, and darts through
the water at a terrific rate. The source of
electricity?for electricity it certainly con?

These give forth a BtlfQcloiit amount of
electric fluid to stun a human being, pro?
vided tho contact with the fish Is at nil
forcible or is with any considerable por?
tion of tho surface of the body. From the
great danger which is entailed by cruising
l!bout in the vicinity of such a llsh. it has
been found impossible to catch a speci?
men, and the knowledge which has boon
gained concern!tiu; the llsh is derived from
