It will be remembered that some eight or ten years ago, while the two little boys, John and George, of Mrs. Anna Swearengen,who is a sister of the Hon. George D. Tillman and Senator Ben Tillman, were out hunting, one of their guns was accidentally discharged, the dit charge striking full in the face of John and depriving'him of the sight of both eyes. He is the elder of the two boys. After a few months suffering, during which time everything that science and money could do for him was done, vainly, the boy became happy" and' ch' erful, and returned with renewed avidity to bis studies, which he had always loved. After four or five years at the Spartanburg Institution for the Blind, in which he gained the highest honers, even becoming withal a good \ piauo player, he was sent to the , South Carolina College, from which [institution comes now, dated December 23d, 1897, a report bearing upon its face seven or eight PR each I followed by two small stars. This means "highest distinction.' And more than this President Woodward writes upon, the report-sent to Mrs. Sweargen "This J s the highest record in College. Your son is .our finest student, and I congratulate you on bis continued and progressive improvement." And yet this boy is blind.

Buck, of Delaney, Ark., had Scrofula for twenty-five years and mos*: of the time was under the care of thc doctors who could not relieve her. A specialist said he could cure her, but he filled her with arsenic and potash which almost ruined her constitution. She then took nearly }? every so-called blood medicine and drank them by the wholesale, '.but they did not reach ^her trouble. Sorae one advised her to try S.S.S. and she very soon found that she had a real blood remedy at last. She says: "After tak ing one dozen bottles of S.S.S. I am perfectly well, my skin is clear and healthy and I would not be in my former condition for two thousand dollars. Instead of drying up the poison in my system, like the potash and arsenic, S.S.S. drove the disease out through the skin, and I was perma nently rid of it."
