The blood has become thick and sluggish with the accumulations left in the system from the inactive, indoor life and from the heavy, rich foods of the V inter season The blood, being in this unnatural and disordered condition is unable to furnish the body with the increased amount of nourishment necessary for the more energetic life of Spring and Summer, and the system sutlers from debility, weakness, nervousness, indigestion, loss of appetite. fflf,ny er unPleasant symptoms of a disordered blood circulation. V hen the system is in this run-down and disordered condition it is not safe to take unknown concoctions, sarsaparillas, compounds, etc., because they psually contain potash or some other equally strong and harmful mineral ingredient, which acts unfavorably and often dangerously on the depleted weakened system at a time when it needs gentle and natural stimulation to throw off the impurities and recuperate its lost energy. S. S. S. is appropri ately called :Nature's tonic. It is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks from the great storehouse of forest and field, selected for their purifying and health-restoring qualities, and as it does not contain the slightest trace of mineral in any form it is perfectly safe for young or old. S. S. S. acts directly on the blood, ridding it of all impurities and poisons, and restoring the lost properties of rich, nutritive strength so that it is able to supply the system with the healthful, invigorating energy needed to pass the trying season of the year. Its action is the most pleasant, prompt and satisfactory of all tonics, and those who feel the need of such a medicine will do well to commence the use of S. S. S. at once. S. S. S. restores lost energy, relieves the tired, worn-out feeling, helps the appetite, aids digestion, and adds tone and vigor to the system. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLAUTA, CA.

We don't know that any of Miranda's boys are getting money for meal tickets from "Dad" Pierce, but somehow, along with the loyal fans of Springfield, we can't help but believe that there are men on the Midget team who ought to be hew ing railroad ties or clearing the brush from the forests of the Ozark uplift.

STUDENTS GIVE PLAY. The Seniors Make a Great Hit in "Cerebrotentanum." Lawrence, Kan., May 27. The senior class of the University of . Kansas scor ed a tremendous hit Saturday evening In its annual play, "Cerebrotentanum, or the Professor's Malady." The pre sentation of the play marked the open ing of the commencement season at the university and a large number of former "students were back-for the oc casion. v As has been the custom for years, the play was written by-a committee of seniors and was entirely local in Its setting. The plot centered around the love affairs of a K. U. professor and the efforts of two women to win him. On the whole, it was of a much more seri ous nature than past senior plays, some of the scenes and parts requiring ex ceedingly skillful interpretation, . The second act, the setting of which was a Kansas wheat field, was especially strong and the. work of the chorus in troduced in this scene was unusually effective and made the hit of the even ing's performance.' The committee who wrote the play was as follows: Miss ivy Brock, chairman; Mabel Marsh, Flo Shanklin, Florence Heizer, Fred Brett, Lawrence Cooper, George Ahlborn and Harry Gowans.
