In October, 1896, one Monday morning the Rushford school did not open and it was reported that the teacher had gone insane. The physi cian in attendance pronounced the trouble nervous prostration and said that school work was mentally and physically impossible. The teacher, who is now Mrs. L. A. Gulliekaon, of Kushford, Minn., in a recent inter view published in the Star of that place, gives the true story of the event. "To begin at the beginning," she said, "when I wss about seven years of age a sudden fright brought on a dreadful condition of nervousness. When, in 18, I was injured in a runaway accident, this, combined with my former trouble, made me so ill that I was unable to open school the following Monday," "Wss it true that you were report ed to be insane?" asked the inter viewer. : . x es, ana toe members ot my family thought that I was becoming so. n ords do not express tne agony 1 endured with my head and eyes, The least noise would cut through my nerves like a knife.

' "I was dizzy and faint with fearful nausea, which nothing relieved. could take no solid food for 10 days, but lived on milk and lime water, When the doctor had treated me for nearly six weeks without helping me, Mrs. J. Webster, a nearby friend, recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. I took them faithfully for not quite three months and was perfectly cured. I have never heard of a single case where they did not prove beneficial and know of sev era! neraona who have token them aim cessfully for rheumatism." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People are not like other medicines. They act directly on the blood and nerves. This makes them invaluable in such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nerv ous headache, the after effects of the grip, palpitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions and all forms of weakness either in male or female At all druggists or direct from Dr Williams Medicine Co., Schenqctady, xv.

UiXU AN INDEX TO THE DLCOD ' Millions of little glands or tubes connect the blood with the skin, and through these small drain pipes perspiration passes out, carrying with it the impurities that sure thrown off by the blood. Should the pores of the skin be entirely closed for eves a brief space of time, and the poisonous matter forced back into the circula tion, instant death would result. In addition to the sweat glands, the skin is provided with certain others which pour out upon it an oily substance, keeping tbe akin pliable and soft and protecting it from heat and cold. The blood and skin are ao closely related that whatever affects one seriously interferes with the func tions of the other. Not only health, but life itself, depends upon perfect harmony . between the blood and skin. When, therefore, the blood becomes poisoned from any cause, it quickly InfOfltStl OOO manifests itself upon the skin in the form vof sores and ulcers, pimples and various EXfOflSOl POISOStS eruptive diseases. By the character of the 'sore we are enabled to determine the nature of the poison or humor in the blood, as e ntj disease originating in the blood has it own peculiar sore or pimple. The akin is not only affected by the poisons generated fh tbe system, but poisons from without enter through the open elands or pores and quickly infect the blood. ' Mercury rubbed upon the skin will produce Rheumatism, and Poison Oak and Ivy asd other wild plants gain easy access to the blood through the skin.
