SORE 5E225.
Whenever a sore or ulcer does not heal, no matter on what part of the
body it may be, it is because of a poisoned condition of the blood. This
Poison may be the remains of some constitutional trouble; the effect of a
ong spell of sickness, which has left this vital stream polluted and weak,
or because the natural refuse matter of the body, which should pass off
through the channels of nature, has been left in the system and absorbed
into the circulation, It does not matter how the poison became intrenched
in the blood, the fact that the sore is there and does not heal is evidence of
& deep, underlying cause. There is nothing that causes more discomfort,
worry and anxiety than a festering, discharging old sore that resists treat
ment, The very sight of it is abhorrent and suggests pollution and disease ;
besides the time and attention required to keep it clean and free from other
infection. As it lingers, slowly eating deeper into the surrounding flesh, the
sufferer grows morbidly anxious, fearing it may be cancerous. Some

e detestable thing, when a fresh reliable blood medicine.
3npp]y Of poison from the blOOd Bfl.tol, Va.-Tenn. W.J. CATE.
would cause the inflammation and old discharge to return and the sore would
be as bad or worse than before. Sores that do not heal are not due to out
side causes; if they were, external treatment would cure them. They are
kept open because the blood is steeped in poison, which finds an outlet
through these places. While young people, and even children, sometimes
suffer with non-healing sores, those most usually afflicted are persons past
middle life. Often, with them, a wart or mole on the face inflames and be
gins to ulcerate from a little rough handling ; or a deep, offensive ulcer de
velops from a slight cut or bruise. Their vital energies and powers of re
sistance have grown less, and circulation weaker, and perhaps some taint in
the blood, which was held in check by their stronger constitutions of early
life, shows itself. It is well to be sus
picious of any sore that does not heal
readily, because the same germ that
produces Cancer is back. of every old
sore and only needs tec be left in the
® & & circulation to produce this fatal disease.
There is only one way to cure these old
‘URELY VE G ETAB L E. sores and ulcers, afid that is to get every
particle of the poison out of the blood. For this purpose nothing equals
S.S. S. It goes down to the very bottom of the trouble, cleanses the blood
and makes a permanent cure. S, S. S. enriches and freshens the circulation
so that it carries new, strong blood to the diseased parts and allows the place
to heal naturaily. When this is done the discharge ceases, the sore scabs
over and fills in with healthy flesh, and the skin regains its natural color.

I have seen something of legal prac
tice on both sides of the Atlantic, and
my opinion is that our profession
«ould gain immenely by combining
the two branches preity much as they
are combined in the United States and
Canada, says a writer in the London
Saturday Review. It is obvlous that
the solicitors would profit by such an
agreement. They would have the right
of audience in ai: courts and the op
portunity to qualify themselves for
promotion to the bench.
In America the young lawyer goes
into an office, where he makes his
merit known by steady attention to
business. There will always be two
kinds of lawyers—those who stay in
their offices, dealing directly with cli
ents and attending t¢ matters of rou
tine, and those who advise ob points
of law and argue cases in court.
These two orders of men are clearly
distiguished in America, but they
work together as partners to the great
advantage of the client.

' A NOVEL ADVERTISEMENT,
It Appeared in a Recent Issue of a
: London Newspaper.
A HOPELESSLY INCOMPETENT FOOL,
with no qualifications, social or intellec
tual, totally devoid of knowledge on any
conceivable subject, thoroughly indolent
and untrustworthy, Is desirour of obtain
ing a remunerative post in any capacity.
Address 1. F. 3, Maclise road, West Ken
sington.
The sublime candor of the above
advertisement which appeared in a
recent issue of the London Times has
caused some amusement and attracted
a great deal of attention among busi
pess men, says the London Express.
Many declared that “I. F.” was a
practical joker; others that he had a
'definite object in view whea he made
}himself out to be a fool. |
That this latter solution was the cor
rect one an KExpress mpreseutatlve!
learned yesterday from “I. F.” him
self. His object, he said, was to at-"
tract the attention of employers by
going out of the beaten track. i
“I. F.,” who is about 27 years old,
is rather more alert and intelllgcnt:
than the average man with an ordi
nary public school education, and his
face is a particularly honest one. {
“I thought if I sgid exactly the op
posite to what most people in search
of a billet insert in the newspapers,”
he said, “I might stand a good chance
of hearing from employers tired of
superlative virtues, and I have not
been disappointed. |
“] have this morning received two
genuine offers and appointments trr:
interviews from the heads o good |
firms and a-large number of letters
and post cards from practical jokexs.‘
It was inevitable, of course, that tliree
or four of the writers should bhave
advised me to apply at once to the
war office, ‘where I would be sure of
a billet.’ 1
“l have been schoolmastering seven
years, and although I have a small

“Nat” Goodwin, the comedian, once
possessed a fine country house on the
banks of the Thames River, near New-
London, Connecticut. Every summer
he used to invite some of his Thespian
friends to join his house party.
On one such occasion Goodwin de
livered himself of a bon mot that is
worth repeating.
“Nat,” said some one, “you certainly
‘have a fine place here. Just think of
it, a lawn right on the river!”
“Yes,” drawled “Nat,” “it's fine. In
the spring we have the lawn on the
river, and in the fall we have the river
on the lawn.”

East Avenue, on the beautiful cam
pus of Cornell University, is shaded by‘
a row of elm-trees, each end of the line
marked by a small brown stone bear
ing the inscription, “Ostrander Elms.”
Henry W. Sage whose name stands
next to that of Ezra Cornell on the roll
of the benefactors of the university,
told the story of these trees in an ad
dress at Cornell several years ago.
After speaking of many things that
had been done for the young college,
he sald:
And last, not least, a gift which has
always had for me a fragrance akin
to that of the widow’s mite immortal
ized in Scripture. John B. Ostrander, a
man remarkable for his integrity and
humility, after having served me twen
ty-five years in the forests of (‘anada
and Michigan, returned at the age of 70
to Dryden, his native town, to spend
there his declining yeads.
Meeting me one day, he said:
“Henry, 1 have been to the univer
sity grounds and seen the work in
progress, and feel as if I want to do
something to help it along. Now I have
no money, but I have some fine young
elms in my woods, and I can bring
down thirty or forty and plant them
there. They will ook well, and will
make a shade for somebody after you
and I are gone.”
I replied, “They are just what we
want. Bring them, and they shall be
known as the Ostrander Elms.”
| Those are the elms on East Avenue,
and a stone at. each end marks the
name of the donor. The shadow of
death has rested over his tomb several
years, and not long hence will rest
over mine, but the elms remain, and a
hundred years hence the shadows of
‘thelr graceful foliage will attest the
loving gift he made us—“they will
make a shade for somebody.”

BUYING LARGER FARMS. ‘
Rural Population Decreasing As
Wealth Increases. |
It seems a paradox, but is neverthe
less well established as true, that in
certain of the best farming regions of
the United States great and abounding
agricultural prosperity has resulted in
decreased rural population. A no less
striking than surprising illustration of
this is given in a recent State census
report of lowa, which is reported to
show a falling off of 2 per cent in the
population of that great and glorious
State since the general census of 1900.
Of course, such a result was not ac
ceptable to lowa’s pride, and it was
not readily accepted. Close inquiry,
however, is reported not only to con
firm the general correctness of the
new count, but to show a sufficient
reason for its disappointing result.
The explanation offered is that it is
all due to the land hunger of the pros
perous lowa farmer. Having money
ahead and well knowing that good
farm land in the Mississippi valley is
one of the safest and most profitable
of investments, he has been buying in
the adjoining farms of his less fore
handed neighbors to such an extent,
the reports say, that vacant farm
houses dot every township in the State.
Many of these vacant farmhouses may
again be occupied by the sons and sons
in-law of the purchaser; some of them
will be abandoned, and the newly ac
quired lands consolidated into larger
farms. And if lowa follows the course
of development that has been going on
for many years in the magnificent
farming regions of Central Illinois, the
consolidated farms will be leased in
tracts of 80 or 320 acres, or more, to
thrifty and prosperous tenant farmers.
The process as it has gone in Illinois
for a number of years is that the
wealthier land owner buys out the 40
and 80-acre farms of his neighbors,
tile drains and otherwise improves
them, often renting the same land or
lar@er tracts to the vendors, who gen
erally made more money as tenants
than they had done as owners. The
tenant farmers of Central Illinois put
their capital into the best of farm im
plements and machinery and live stock.
Their prosperity is seen in their com
fortable and well furnished houses, the
well kept vehicles and horses which
their families drive to church and to
country gatherings. In Central Illi
nois just now the tendency is to larger
farms, the tenant generally desiring to
inerease his area and the landlord regu
lating the quantity of land he will
lease by the proved capacity and suc
cess of each tenant. For its best farm
lands lowa appears to be approaching
the same system.—Springfield Repub
lican.
