Constitutlonal Blood Poison is the
most insidious of all diseases. It
begins in an insigniScant manner,
?usuall}- the appearance of a tiny sore
being the only outward evidence pf its
presence. But down iu the blood the
treacherous infection is at work, aud I
in a short time its chain of symptoms :
begin to crop out. The month and |
throat ulcerate, skin eruptions break j
DUt, sores and ulcers appear on the?
"body, the glands iu the groin swell, |
?ind sometimes the hair comes out. J
Mineral medicines cannot cure Con-1
?stitutional Blood Poison; they only!
?mut the disease up in the system to !
smoulder and await an opportunity ofj
breaking out^afrcsh. The only pos
Bible way-.to ,-eu-re**the disease is to |
REMOVE the germs from the blood.
S. S. S. goes into the blood, and while
removing the infection makes the
blood pure, fresh aud healthy. This |
causes a general
upbuilding of the
entire system,
aud when S. S. S.
has made a cure
there is no return
of the hideous
syuip toms .
S. S. S. is made
entirely of vege?
table matter, containing not the least
particle of mineral in any form. It is
a perfectly safe medicine and a certain
cure for blood poison. We have a

Now that we are In the shank of the foot?
ball soaaon local Interest ls centred ln two
bames?the one on Thanksgiving Day and
the one to follow 0n the Saturday after
Thankaglving. North Carollna and Virginla
get together on the hollday. and Rlchmond
College plays Randolph-Macon two days
afterwards. Aa to the first game. the S. lt.
O. sign Wlll be out early. Recent dovelop?
ments have made many of us come to the
concluslon that Carollna and Virginla are
more .evenly matched than waa belleved
earlier' in thc season. In fact. it might be
atated that the Carollna-Vlrglnla game la
the local rrinceton-Yale affalr. lf it were
up to me to do the pointing out I ahould say
that Carolina la the Vale ot the coming
game. It might be wrll to dwell further on
the subject, but you know what Yale did.
Prlnceton was the favorlte. and rlghtly
so, If one Is to roly on previous records.
Then Yale wlaedup a blt. tlghtened up ita

Vaughan being run In at the other end.
and?but aa Kipling aaya. that's another
story. In tho proBent Instance it looks Ilke
Virginia can't lose. But Carollna trains fnr
but one game. and that game happens on
Thanksgiving Day. ITnder these condltlons
a wonderful team ran be built up. In the
first place. even though every other game
on thc schedule may be played to wln, the
taetics pursued are thn tactlcs whlch wouid
stop the team it is deslred to boat ln the
cruclal same of the season. The aame tac?
tlcs. whlch mlght be all rlght to accom
pllsh the maln purpose ln mlnd, mlght prove
dlsastrous agalnst other team*.

..?Ins on Thankaglving Day the other de?
feat b wlll be forgotten and he will be ac

as the greatest football coach of thc age.
He has hnd ample opportunlty to aludy
Virglnla'B style of play. Thero never was
a style nf play Invented In a football gnme
which could not be stopped. as witness the
old tackle-back formation ! of Pennsy,
whlch for some time was so formldable.
Now If Brldes haa been doing what 1 be?

This was thc last car to lose
its perfect score in the 1910
Glldden Tour. For five ter
rific days the $1500 Chalmers
had no penalty, while $2500
to $3500 cars suffered. And
in the final examination in
Chicago, after a grind of 2851
miles, the Chalera "30" was
not found at fault in any of
its vital parts.
The Chalmers "30" came
through the severest test
to whlch stock cars were
