TORTURING RHEUMATISM Na? Reapecter of Persons. If you will get it fixed in your mind that in many forms Rheu matism is a blood disease and cannot be cured by local treat ment, you will ihen by proper treatment begin to get the per manent relief you have been seek ing for so many years. In this article we want to ex plain to you the cause of this most painful of all diseases, also offer suggestions, founded on reason and long years of experience, which will enable you to secure the right treatment if you are af flicted with any of the various forms of Rheumatism Rheumatism is often a specific blood fermentation, a souring of the circculation from an excess of uric acid accumulating in the blood stream. This uratic impur ity comes usually as a result of constipation, weak kidneys, indi gestion and stomach disturbances. These systemic irregularities may not be of marked seventy or of long duration, but each has a di rect effect on the eliminativi mem bers of the beSdy. which prevents the proper removal of the waste products. This refuse remains in the stomach and bowels, and sour ing forms uric acid, which the blood quickly absorbs Rheumatism is usually mani fested in the joints and muscles. It it here its sharpest twinges of pain are felt, and stiffening of ligaments and tendons first com mence. The pain of Rheumatism is caused by the contact of the sensory nerves with the gritty, acrid formation which uric acid causes to accumulate in the cor puscles of th? blood about the joints The stiffening of muscles and joints is usually gradual. Con stantly the blood deposits the uric acid into the joints, and slowly the . natural fluids are dried up and de stroyed. Then Rheumatism be comes chronic and serious. It is then that this poison in the blood has sapped the strength'. The weakened blood has allowed poison and impurities to accumu late, leaving the sufferer with all energy gone. Scientists have discovered that the forest and field are abundantly supplied with vegetation o? va rious kinds, that furnish the in gredients for making a remedy for practically every ill and ail ment of mankind. Medicines made from roots, herbs and barks which Nature has placed at the disposal of man, are better than strong mineral mixtures and concoctions. Mineral medicines work danger ously on the delicate parts of the system, especially the stomach and bowels, by eating out the lining membrane, producing chronic dys pepsia and often entirely ruining the health. S S. S. is guaranteed to be a purely vegetable remedy. It is made entirely of gentle-acting, healing, purifying roots, herbs and barks,' possessing properties that build up all parts of the sys tem, in addition to removing all impurities and poisons from the blood. S. S. S is a safe treat ment for Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Skin Diseases, and all disorders which are caused by an impoverished condition of the blood. It cleanse* the entire system. S S. S. it a standard remedy, recognized everywhere aa the greatest blood antidote ever discovered If yours is a peculiar case, we invite you to write our Medical Department for full in formation and advice about the treatment for which there is no charge.

Tumulty, yesterday endeavored to quiet rumors that other resig nations from the Wilson Cabinet will follow shortly in the wake of Mr. Lansing's rellnquishment of his portfolio by declaring flatly that there will be no more resignations from the Cabinet. Tumulty added that the Cabinet meetings, halted by the President, will be resumed very soon. This, coupled with the l-anslng resignation, is regarded as a confirmation 6f reports that th? President will again preside over the meetings. The reaction on the situation? created by Mr. Lansing's leaving the Cabinet at President Wilson's request was reflected in a resolu tion Introduced In the House yes terday by Representative Luther W. Mott. Republican, of New York, ex pressing tbe regret of Congress at the resignation of Mr. Lansing and disapproving the attitude of Presi dent Wilson toward the retiring Cabinet official. Mr. Mott, who for four years was a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, was transferred at the beginning of the present Congress to the Ways and Means Committee. Mr. Lansing's home city of Watertown is In his district. In a formal statement given out In connection with his resolution, the ?N'ew York member suggests th?t the Foreign Relations Committee will be. glad to call Mr. Lansing be fore It and learn some of the unpub lished facts regarding hie treat ment. According to Representative Mott. the entire Cabinet and Secre tary Tumulty ?re equally concerned with Mr. Lan?lng In the calling of th* Cabinet meeting? during.Presi dent Wilson's illness.

ROUGH DRAFT CORREGTED At the beginning of Washington's . first administration the Treasury of the new government was almost empty. To equip, feed and pay the Continental Army had been an expensive task for the colonies and it owed 'an enormous debt, large sums of money borrowed from Kuropc and ?for loans from our own citizens. For the protection of our credit as a nation and as a matter of honesty, Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of the Treasury, insisted that not only should all these obligations be redeemed and promptly paid, but also the United States should assume the debts of the several States, if still unpaid. These latter said he were a rightful obligation having been incurred in the defense of the nation. Most of the Southern States had already paid off a lar*je share of their own and did not relish being taxed to pay the debts of tic other States. The result proved to be what Hamilton had predicted. When people at home and in Europe saw that even if the Treasury was empty, every dollar was going to be paid, the credit of the nation watt firmly established at once and confidence was restored and the nation was able to borrow what ever money Was needed to carry on the government. The name of Hamilton, for the great service rendered, deserves to be re membered for all time.
