ELKS GATHER IN
Take Atlantic City by Storm.
(Special to The Tlmcs-Dlspatch.]
Atlantic City, N. J., July 10.?Al?
though they had already taken the
town by atorm the thousands of Elks
for tholr annual reunion gathered In
the marine ball room on the Steel Pier
to-night, and permitted the people ol
Atlantic City to formally give them
the freedom of the city. Tho principal
address of welcome in the absence of
Governor Wood row Wilson, who had
expected to be here, was made by
Harry Bacharach, exalted ruler of tho
Atlantic " City lodge. August Herr?
mann, of Cincinnati, the grand ex?
alted ruler, responded. The tlrst busi?
ness session of the Grand Lodge will
be held to-morrow.
Members of the Richmond lodge
arrived here yesterday afternoon at 5
o'clock In their palatial special train,
and at once marched to the Hotel
Stanton. where they will make their
headquarters during their reunlon.
Thc delegations were met at the
station by a body of their local broth?
ers, with a brase band and escorted
to their hotel, where an Informal re?
ception was held. Virginia is well
represented here, and there are more
to arrive. Fifteen members of the
Danville Dodge, No. U27. and twenty
men from the Lynchburg lodge ar?
rived yesterday and to-day. The for?
mer expect ten more men late to?
night or to-morrow.
The visiting Elks aroec this morn?
ing to face one of the hottest days In
the history of tho local bureau. All
day long the sun beat down on th?
heuds of the devoted brothers and
made campaigning extremely uncom?
fortable and drove every one to the
surf. The famous slogan, "Hello. Bill,"
sank Into obscurity to give place to the
new one. "Take off your coat." This
morning It would have been difficult
to have found a man wearing this un?
necessary garment, and as a result
the pr ce of purple, shirts mounted to
a record figure. Ten of the Richmond
delegation, tempted by the fair sail?
ing breeze, from the southwest, for?
sook the great esplanade, and went fot
a sail outside. Unlike several other
parties from Western States, who have
ventured on the deep, none of the. men
was troubled with seasickness, and on
their return another party for Wed?
nesday was planned.

A GREAT TONIC
?ND BLOOD PURIFIER
There is one reason above all others which makes S. S. S. the
greatest of all tonics, and that is because it is the most perfect of all
blood purifiers. Any system which needs a tonic, needs a blood puri?
fier, for it is impure blood which causes the weakened, run-down con?
dition of the body. S. S. S. is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks,
which possess not only strengthening properties, but at the same time
are recognized as ingredients of the greatest value for removing every
impurity, poison or taint from the circulation. S.S.S. improves the
appetite and digestion, corrects stomach disturbances and steadily tones
and builds the system up to perfect health. It adds to the blood the rich,
healthful properties it needs, and in every way benefits the system.
S. 5.5. cures all diseases and disorders arising from weak or impure
blood. Book on the blood and medical advice free. S. 5. S. is for sale
