AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY.
80 Thinks at Least One Traveling Man.
I would as soon think of starting out
without my mileage books and erip
as to start out on a trip without a box
of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets in my
valise, said a traveling man who rep
resents a St. Louis hardware house.
Why? Because I have to put up at
all kinds of hotels and boarding houses.
I have to eat good, bad and indiffer
ent food at all hours of the day and
night and I don't believe any man's
stomach will stand that sort of thing
without protest, anyway I know mine
Yon't. It has to nave something to
bieak the fall and Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets is the crutch 1 fall back on.
My friends often "josh" me "about
it, tell me I'm an easy mark for pat
ent medicine fakirs, that advertised
medicines are humbugs, etc., but I
notice that they are nearly always
complaining of their aches and pains
and poor digestion, while I stand most
any old kind of fare and feel good
and ready for my work when it needs
me, and I believe I owe my good di
gestion and sound health to the daily,
regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets, year in and year out, and all the
joshing" in the world will never con
vince me to the contrary.
I used to have heartburn about three
times a day and a headache about
three or four times a week and after
standing this for four or five years I
began to look around for a crutch and
found it when my doctor told me the
beat investment I could make would
be a fiftv cent box of Stuart's Dyspep
sia Tablets, and I hnve invested about
fifty cents a month for them ever smco
and when I stop to think that that is
what I spend every day for cigars, I
feel like shaking hands with myself
for I can keep my stomach and diges
tion in first class order for fifty cents
a month. I don't care for any better
My druggist tells me they are the
most popular of all stomach medi
cines and that they have maintained
their popularity and success because
they do as advertised. They bring re
sults, and results are what count in
patent medicine as much as in selling

BLOOD POISON I
Contagious Blood Poison more thor
oughly poisons the blood than any other
disease. Every part of the body is af
fected when the virus becomes intrenched
in the circulation red eruptions break
out on the skin, the mouth and throat
ulcerate, glands in the neck and groins
Bwell, the hair falls out, copper-colored
splotches appear on the body, etc.
I was afflicted with blood poison, and
the best doctors did me no good, though
I took their treatment faithfully. In
fact I seemed to get worse all the while.
I took almost every so-oalled blood rem
edy, but they did not seem to reach the
disease, and had no effect whatever. I
was disheartened, for it seemed that I
would never be cured. At the advice of
L friend I then took S. S. S. and began to
tmproTO. I coxvtixi'ciod.tliQ medicine, a_
it cured me completely.
Hamlet, N. 0. W. B. NEWMAN.
So highly contagious is this disease but their claim was rejected.
that many a life has been ruined by a
friendly band, shake or from using the
toilet articles of one affected with the
poison. To cure this hideous and hate
ful disease a constitutional remedy is re
quired. S. S. S. goes down to the very
root of the trouble and forces out every
particle of the virus from the blood and
cures the disease permanently. S. S.
is purely vegetable and drives out the
trouble,rootand branch,, and no
signs of it are
ever seen again.
Those who have
been cured by
S. S. S. can feel
none of the poison is left in the blood to
transmit to innocent offspring. The en
tire body is built up and the blood made
pure, rich and healthy by this great rem
edy. Book with instructions for home

STORY OF THE STRUGGLE WITH
ANNOYERS OF THE FARMER.
European Pests, Comparatively Harm
less at Home, Come Over Here and
Cost Millions of Dollars Every
YearEfforts to Combat Them by
Means of Parasites Are Usually Suc-
By W. W. Jermane.
Washington, Aug. 30.Like many
other things American, the ravages of
insect pests reach far greater propor
tions here than1
in Europe. Why should
these pests do comparatively little
damage at hpme and very much here?
Dr. L. O. Howard, chief of the division
of entomology, discussed this question
today in a way which throws much light
on the problem, and also shows the need
of a quarantine along our borders
against dangerous plant importations.
California maintains such a quaran
tine on the Pacific coast. Bills have
for years been before congress to se
curc this measure of protection on all
our borders against the pests which are
still on the outside, but thus far with
out success. The importers of nursery
stock do not like to be bothered with
Sixty Bad Pests.
The reasons we suffer more from in
sect pests than do the farmers of Eu-
rope,'' said Dr. Howard, "are plain.
This country is much newer its planta
tions are much larger we do not have
the same intensive systems of cultiva
tion, with the personal watchfulness
'which these secure. We do not take
care of the borders of our fields as they
do Europe we have not the same sys
tern of crop rotation and we have a
longer summer. So we suffer many
times as much from these enemies, and
the problem in fighting them is a vast
ly greater one.
"We have about sixtv insect pests
agriculture and horticulture, wn-icn.
we call 'first-class,' because they entail
damages each year running into mill
ions of dollars. Our records mention
over 11,000 injurious insects in this
country, but those which are chiefly
troublesome may be comprehended in
the number mentioned. Of these
thirty-two were imported from Europe,
accidentally in every case. And in
each instance the pest is doing much
more harm here than it did there. This
number of troublesome pests will be in
creased as the years go on, with the
increasing and quickening communica
tion over the seas, unless some effective
scrutiny of plants is made at our ports.
We could limit the number of ports at
which plants were permitted to come in,
just as we do the live stock.
Noxious Weeds Migrate.
"The rest of the world has many
things still to give us. We shall always
get our worst pests from Europe. The
general trend of their migration, curi
ously enough, seems to be from east to
west, and this is true of noxious weeds
as well. In Australia and New Zealand
they fear chiefly things brought from
the United States. The direction is
everywhere from the older civilization
to the new. Although more than half
our pests of first-class importance have
come from Europe, but one case has
arisen where it has taken anything in
jurious from us, and that is the grape
vine phylloxera, which did them enor
mous damage until they imported Amer
ican grapevine stock, on which to
graft their own.
"The gypsy moth and the brown-tail
moth are comparatively unimportant in
European forestry and fruit growing.
Besides the reasons already mentioned,
it should be remembered that these
pests have come over to us without
the parasites which hold them down at
home. Now that the effort in Massa
chusetts is no longer toward extermina
tion, but rather to hold these pests in
check, we can begin the importation of
insect enemies. These insects do not
do damage every year in Europe, but
only once in a while does either be
same degree each year. The tussock
moth, for example, once in a number
of years becomes very iniurious to Bos
ton common, stripping the tree^ badly.
But this very abundance stimulates its
parasites and predatory insect enemies,
with plenty of food, they multiply with
unwonted rapidity and so put a. cneck
on the tussock.
Although the extermination of a
pest is not ordinarily to be. thought of,
it may be said that these insect ene
mies 'have their day,' or periods when
the injury they do is so gresit as to
command general attention. The cot
ton-leaf caterpillar, for example, was
one of the most prominent insect pests
of this country twenty-live years ago,
damaging the cotton TOP annually
from fifteen to thirty million dollars.
The general use of paris green has done
much to relegate it to the rear That
we no longer maintain the same large
cotton plantations that we did a quar
ter of a centuiy ago also accounts in
part for the improvement.
States Waiting Out.
"The movement of traffic over state
lines would spread the area of opera
tion of each pest much wider than now,
I did not almost every state in the union
have a law providing that no nurseiy
1 stock, grafts, bulbs or cuttings, or any
thing of that kind, should be shipped
from one state to another without a
certificate from a competent ento
mologist that it is not affected by in
sect or plant disease. These state
laws, having the hearty co-operation
of the railroads and express companies,
prove of great value in limiting the
spread of pests. The California law,
I which is really the one on which the
others have been based, stood the test
of the courts. An interesting case
arose over the importation of a large
cargo of oranges from Acapulco. In
Mexico a pest known as the Morelos
orange fruit worm, damaging the pulp
of the orange, proves serious. Certain
specimens in this cargo were discov
ered to be infected with it, and under
the quarantine law of California the
whole cargo was destroyed. Its owners
appealed to the courts for damage on
the ground that the seizure was illegal,
National Quarantine Law.
The California people are still more
strenuous in their advocacy of a na
tional quarantine law. They are
constant fear of the importation of this
very fruit worm, and their officials are
more or less at loggerheads with the
Mexicans on that subject.
"Other well-known pests, the com
ing of which we ought to avoid, thrive
in Japan and Australia and New
Zealand, as well as in Mexico and the
West Indies. These are liable to be
admitted almost any time. The bill
which is designed to lessen this possi
bility has been recommended by a sub
committee of the committee on agri
culture, but has never yet passed either

KING'S LAST DAYS
SADDENED BY DRINK
New York Sun Special Service.
Jersey City, N. J., Aug. 30.John
King, artist, writer and freefclance, vet
eran of the United States navy and
a man of many accomplishments, who
is now blind, was today committed, at
his own request, to the penitentiary by
"TPlease send me to iil, nidge,"
pleaded the old man. I have tried
to stop drinking and I can't do it. I
will be better off in jail."
The court expressed its sympathy and
promised to see if something could be
_i ,1 done to aid King.
George Loft Appeals to the Board King was born in Syracuse sixty
three years ago and was educated for
the law. He had literary ambitions,,
however, and soon after his graduation
went to Boston, where he was made a
member of the staff of the Waverly
Magazine. For several years he wrote
under the nom de plume of "Bud."
Later he secured the Paris corre
spondence of tne National Police Ga
zette. When the Franco-Prussian war
broke out King was one of the first
to start for the front.
A few months ago King welcomed
a chance to play in Larry Sutton's
dance hall here.
King had considerable talent with
the brush and he painted a picture
called "The Miser's Paradise" that
created a sensation.
