SU' MMER RHEUMATISM Every season has its own diseases, but Rheuma tism belongs to all, for when it gets well intrenched in the system, and joints and muscles are saturated with the poison, the aches and pains are coming and going all the time, and it becomes an all-the-year round disease; an attack coming as quickly from sud den chilling of the body when overheated a fit of in digestion or exposure to the damp E&steriy winds of Summer as from the keen cutting winds, freezing atmosphere and bitter cold of Winter. Rheumatism never comes by accident. It is in the blood and system before a pain is felt. Soime inherit a strong predisposition or tendency; it is born in them; but whether heredity is back of it or it comes from imprudent and careless ways of living, it is the same always and at all seasons. The real cause of Rheumatism is a polluted, sour and acid condition of the blood, and as it flows through the body deposits a gritty, irritating substance or sediment in the muscles, joints and nerves, and it is these that produce the terri ble pains, inflammation and swelling and the misery and torture of Rheumatism. No other disease causes such pain, such wide-spread Auffering. It deforms and cripples its thousands, HIS WIFE A GREAT SUFFERER. ' leaving them helpless invalids and nervous wrecks. .y wife had been trobt*ed with When neglected or improperly treated, Rheuma- ,o for s et wh ,a she heard o . . whoh she tried mad whikh owed hew eon tism becomes chronic, the pains are wandering or etelyr, as s has mot smmerd emos. I re.. shifting from one place to another, sometimes sharp o" s s.. gUoomd me.do.,. and cutting, again dull and aggravating. The mus cles of the neck, shoulders and back, the joints of the knees, ankles and wrists, are most often the seat of pain. Countless liniments and plasters are applied to get relief, but such things do not reach the poisoned blood; their effect is only temporary; they are neither curative nor preventive. The blood must be purified, and all irritating matter re moved from the circulation before permanent relief and a thorough cure is effected, and no remedy does this so certainly and so quickly as S. S. S. It contains not only purifying and tonic properties, but solvent qualities as well, all these being necessary in eradicating the poison and making a complete and lasting cure of Rheumatism. 8. S. 8. cleanses the blood of all irritating matter and the acid particles are dissolved and filtered out of the system thus relieving the muscles and joints and removing all danger of future attacks. Under its tonic effect the nervous system re gains its normal tone and the appetite and digestion im prove, resulting in the upbuilding of the general health. S. S. 8S. contains no Potash or mminerals of any descrip tion, but is guaranteed purely vegetable. Old people will find it notonly the best blood purifier, but a most invigorating tonic-just such a remedy as they need to enrich the blood and quicken the circulation. Whether you have Rheumatism in the acute or chronic stage, the treatment must be internal, deep and thorough in order to be lasting. Never be satisfied with anything less than an absolutely perfect cure. This you can get by the use of S. S. S., the oldest and beest purlfier and greatest of all tonics. Write us fully and freely about your case, and medical advice will be given without. charge, and our special book on Rheumatism will be mailed free to all desiring it. 8W SWTT SPW1IAIO OONPANY, ATLANTA, GA. SIDE LIGHTS ON THE DAY'S SPORTING NEWS Sir Thomas Lipton in refusing to admit Reliance's superiority lays himself open to the suspicion of being a doubting Thomas. That was a nice beginning made yester dlay at Columbia Gardens with the Seattle team. There are five more games to be played in this series and Butte ought to get three of them. The wild west show at Columbia (;ar dens next Sunday is attracting attention all over the state. Aside from the star ropers and broncho busters already sched tled to appear there will likely he many from Billings and Miles City, who will compete for the generous prizes offered. The roping and throwing of sters will at tract many of the daring riders. The con t,.st wil be judged by competent men and the winner will doubtless be sent to Den ver as the representative of Montana in the Iig cowboy convention to be held this fall. Many persons have the impression that the horses used in the ,broncho busting ch.ntests have been trained, but the man a:gement states positively that they have not. The majority of the horses have never felt the touch of a rope and the (-therm are outlaws that have proved their wild, untamable spirits. The horse, Hell (anyon Dick, which is to be ridden by S;eorge Christnot, is a wonder for vicious nless and has not been corralled until re centtly, The ball grounds will be illuminated at night and the field will be as light as day. This is a sight worth seeing. The quality of ball played this season in the Pacific National league compares well with the American association or the Western league. Now that several of the teams have been disbanded, the big leagues are getting hold of the best men and it is a foregone conclusion they will make good. Jesse Stovall who pitched for MoClos key's San Francisco team has just been Signed by the Cleveland club. He has been order to report at St. Louis next Sun llay. Thompson and Carisch of the old Helena team are with Pittsburg. Jim Wings was tried out early in the season with fast company in the East and was released because he could not control that wonderfully speedy ball. Wiggs is pitching better this season than last and it is almost certain that he will be given an other trial. Lord Shaftsbury adjusted his monocle and looked off into space and delivered himself of the following yesterday: "We are licked. The Reliance is jolly well the best boat." It might be well to observe that Lord Shaftsbury hasn't any scoop on that bit ,f news. The American people have know that for a long time. C. Oliver Iselin, owner of Reliance, says of the race yesterday: "I don't suppose anybody ever saw two bIoats better handled than those yester day. It would seem, however, that the Reliance has proved her superiority in all kinds of weather, and under all condi tions." Sir Thomas Lipton, genial gentleman and sportsman that he Is, Is not without hope. He takes cd.nolation in the show ing made by Shamrock III yesterday. "You have all seen the races and the only thing I can say is that we did better yesterday tha:1 in the last race, whicheis hopeful. I figure my defeat at a little more than one ntinutg. If I make as much progress in the next race as I did over the last I will be in line to win the third race. I was more than pleased at the way my boat was handled. It is hard to admit it, but the better boat won. Perhaps with more wind at the finish the result might have been different. But I do not want to throw cold water on the victory. It is hard to win every race in such a series, and I hope our turn will come next." IIuelsnian, the Spokane outfielder is re ported to have received an offer of $4o00 a month to play the Chicago National League team. Steinwedel of the disbanded Los An geles team will return to West Point. Ar thur l-lilderbrand will coach the Princeton football team this fall. It is said that he receives $3,5oo a year for his services. The sailing master who can locate the possible puffs and have his boat where they are, will outsail his brother, whose weather eye is not as keen. Any ordinary, rough, deep sea tar can keep his vessel full and by when it blows. But it takes a yachtsman to handle a boat when the air is particularly light and baffling. The man at the wheel of these delicately balanced racing fabrics must handle her as he would a woman. He must have a hand of steel in a velvet glove. This is the way the courses for the yacht races are marked out: The course will be 3o nautical miles in length, one as knots to windward or lee ward according as the breeze blows, and return, the other a triangle, to knots to the side. The water will be the open ja off Sandy Hook. Sandy Hook lightship will mark the start and finish of both courses, Presuming the wind to be from the east ward in the windward and leeward course, the regetta committee's tug will log off i5 knots from the lightship straight out to sea and there anchor a stake boat. The yachts will cross an imaginary line drawn between the lightship and the com mittee boat at anchor. The wind being east, the will beat out to the stakeboat; that is, Uey will pro ceed in a zigzag fashion, first taking the wind on one side of their sails and then on the other, tacking. Going around the stakeboat, they will ease off sheets and run home with the wind behind them. Here they will set spinnakers. If the wind be from the west, the op posite point of the compass, the order of sailing will be reversed. They will run before the wind to the stakeboat and beat home. Should the wind be from the south they will beat down the New Jersey shore and come back free. If it be from the north they will run down the Jersey beach and beat home. The triangular course will be so laid that one leg will be a beat, and the other two reaches, * Of course, after the yachts have crossed the line, the wind may haul-a habit it has-and the yachts will have'to accom modate themselves to the change, STOVALL SIGNED BY CLEYELAND TEAM CLEVER PITCHER OF THE SAN FRAN.

The development of passenger transportation in the United States astonishes all foreigners. Edwin A. Pratt, a representative of the Ion. don Times, was making some investigatione yesterday at the Grand Central Station with a view to writing a comprehensive article oq American railroads. His Inquiries developed the fact that the New York Central has eight passenger trains a day between New York and Chicago, and when he learned that the distance is go0 miles he remarked that it is a marvelous thing. He was still further astonished to And that four of the eight trains make the pgo miles in twenty-four hours, and that one, the Twen tieth Century Limited, goes the distance every day, in either direction, in twenty hours. His amasement grew when he was Informed s.it the Westbound Tweatleth Century Limited carries only Chicago passengers, and will not take a passenger for any other point. He re marked that his people would be equalll astounded on learning these facts.-From "On the Tip of the Tongue" Column In the new York Press. SONS OF ST. GEORGE PICNIC Ati TWIN BRIDGES.
