During my travels in Turkey I was
very much Impressed by a curious
looking little shop plong one of the
narrow streets. Because this build
ing and Its decorations were so much
different from the rest of th°e houses,
I became curious to enter and see
what was sold there- I was met by a
pleasant old man, vfho, I noticed, car
ried a highly polished tube, and who
informed we his business was -to
look into th* future. I at once became
very much interested and asked him
how it was possible for him to do
this. He Immediately held up his
tube and lovingly stroking It, said:
"You have wonderful powers hidden
In you," and then he went on to tell
me about the tube.
The construction of this tube was
quite simple, but the wotk It did was
beyond my knowledge. If you would
write the name of a person on a piece
of blank paper and then put It Into
this tube, leave It for one minute,
then remove It, there would be printed
on this paper something ot interest
about the penon whose name you

,, To tone the blood meant to enable It to
tbrow off accumulated Impurities, to in
crease the rea corpuscles and to put the
blood-making organs Into such active condi
tion as to produce that conscious sensation
of what we feel as health.
This is the logical effect of using the
famous blood purifier, S. 8. 8.
naif the people you meet complain of
weary muscles, stagnant brain. Jangled
nerves, and a wonderful desire to lay down
and just quit. Most of these people have
been using nervines that spasmodically flare
np the nerves only to die down again, as
die they must. Avoid nerve stimulants.
Bear in mind that this worn-out feeling is
due to poor blood, to bacteria in the water
you drink to the multiplying of destruc
tive cerns in the blood faster than they
con be overcome by the white corpuscles
and to what is known as auto-toxemia, that
condition where the venous or impure blood
accumulates faster than it can be replaced,
by the red arterial blood.
S. 8. S. has long been famous a* a blood
pariQcr, and ita action by elimination of
tbe irritating poisons that Infest the blood,
1a one of the very Important things to know.
You can get 8. S. S. at any drug store,
but take no other so-called blood purifler.
S. S. 8. Is purely a vegetable product,
and you will make a great mistake to have
some enthusiast palm off a mercury, arsenic
or Iodide of potash preparation that may
do you irreparable harm.

you have any deep-seated or obstinate blood

to do so.
were doing, so I, in turn, wrote their
names on blank paper and gave them
to the old man to put into the tube.
I first wrote the name of Gerard
Hulskamp. I found that Puss had be
come a great financier and he also was
at the head of a manufacturing con
cern. I was quite sure that Gerard
could now use some of the experience
which he obtained In leading our
scrappy elass meetings.

in working trigonometry. I wasn't at
all surprised that she had become a
teacher in that study.
Rosa Wilson and Russell Buss were
now at the head of an engineering
company, and the contract for build
ing the highest building in the world
was let to them.
Jeane.tte Wunderly, the young lady
with the big determinations and air
castles floating about her, had at last
come down from her lofty position and
was now taking her place In vaude
ville as a chorus girl
Walter Nichols, the boy who loved
to be dcessed right up to the minute,
had at last got a position in which he
could quench his desire. He was a
living model in one of the New York
stores. Every other day they used
Walter in the ladies' department.
Clifford Agnew had become a lec
turer for bdys and had convinced
many a.boy never to start the use ot
the horrible cigarette. Ot course this
was before Clifford got any bad habits.
MaJorle Moore, the girl whom I re
member ais being of a very quiet na
ture had gone now to the other ex
treme and was always ready for a lot
of excitement. Because of her interest
in such events, she became a sport
ing editor for an eastern paper.
Harry Pagett had become a tall,
robust fellow. I was somewhat sur
prised when 1 read this. But there
was one way I could account for It,
when Harry graduated he was quite
fond of a freshman girl and if he
went with her, for her remaining
years in school, he surely had enough
exercise to make him grow.
Verna Miller and Altce Linquist, 1
was sorry to read, had become suf

We also had another writer in our
class. Elizabeth Wilson had written
a book backed by experience, "Why
Boys and Girls Should Never Play
Hookey From School."
Albert Jenkins had made Keokuk
stand out In the medical world. He
had invented a medicine to kill pain
without injury to the constitution.
But he had never become president
of the United States as he once said
he was going to be.
Well! Well! Could this be possible?
George Rolloson bad become a preach

person must know the bad things in
life to teach against them so if this
is true, it certainly must be true that
George became a preacher.
Remembering Charles Parsons as
an all around athlete, I wasn't a bit
surprised to read that he was employ

the colleges abroad.
Irwin Coombs' love for the river
had never ceased. He had become
quite wealthy through his steamboat
lines and as a marine architect.
Helen Kiedaisch bad devoted sever
al years of her life to a worthy
cause she had become a Red Cross
nurse. But one day her career as a
nurse ended, because she took advant

I felt rather sorry when I read that
Leslie Vaughan was left a large for

work, and now he said It wouldn't
look right for a man of his means to
keep some poor fellow from a posi
