A MILD CASE
Of Contagious Blood Poison never eids
ted. It is always bad, though sometimes
no external symptoms of the disease ap
pear for a long time.
Because the disease is slow in devel
oping does not indicate that the case is
a mild one, for the poisonous virus at
work in the blood and system may be
spending its force upon some internal
vital organ while you are looking for ex
teraal signs. Contagious Blooa Poison
does not affect all alike. In most cases
the first little sore is quickly followed by
painful swellings in the groins, a red
eruption upon the body, sores or ulcers
in the mouth and throat, unsightly copper
colored blotches, loss of hair and eye
brows and other symptoms of this^ miser
able disease. When the poison is thus
fighting its way to the surface, exposing
the disease in all its hideousness, we call
it a bad case but Contagious Blood Poi
son, whether working internally or exter
nally, is a dangerous, treacherous disease.
S. S. S. is the only remedy that cures
Contagious Blood Poison thoroughly aad
permanently. It is an antidote for the
deadly virus that produces the awful
eruptions, sores and ulcers, and destroys
the bones. Mercury and Potash dry up
the skin eruptions, but in so doing drive
the poison further into the system, where
it slumbers for a time, but comes back
again with redoubled fury.
S. S. S. is a vegetable remedy that has
been used successfully for years in treat
forms. If you have the
slightest symptom an
kJP kJV occasional sore mouth,
or muscular and bone
pains, your blood is tainted and the disease
is liable to break out again at any time.
A course of S. S. S. will remove every
trace of poison and at the same time
build up your general health.

Robert Pinkerton once told a story of
his father, the founder of the detective
agency, which illustrates the elder
Pinkerton's caution. A. noted criminal
was detained in Pinkerton's Chicago
office. The elder Pinkerton left the room
and when he returned took the precau
tion of holding a revolver in front of
him ready for use.
He saw the criminal standing by the
door with a snuffbox he had picked
np from Pinkerton's desk in his hand.
"This is good snuff," affably re
marked the crook as he took a sniff.
"For the eyes or the nose?" asked
Pinkerton, who knew that the crook
had intended to blind him in an effort

What It Mean* When They Are Fly
ing at Half Mast.
The flying of flags over the capitol at
half mast is regulated by the strictest
rules. Whenever these flags are seen
floating half way down the mast it is
a sure indication that a vice president,
senator or representative is lying dead
or that the action is taken in response
to a presidential proclamation ordering
the flags on public buildings at half
mast in respect to the memory of some
prominent official of the government
who has passed away.
When the sergeant at arms of the
senate or house of representatives
learns of the death of a member of
either of those bodies, he at once
orders that the flags over the senate
chamber or hall of representatives be
half masted. This is often done before
the houses of congress themselves are
officially notified of the death. A good
deal of discretion is exercised in the
manner of placing the news of a death
of this kind officially before the senate
or the house. Upon such an announce
ment it is customary for the houses to
adjourn in respect to the deceased sen
ator or representative, and in order
that the current business may not be
stopped, early in the day the announce
ment is generally made just before the
houses are ready to conclude their
Officers of the senate and house
when they fly the flags at half mast in
response to a proclamation by the pres
ident regard their action as one of
courtesy, as they do not recognize the
power of the president to order con
gress to do anything except to assem
ble in extraordinary session. They
have always responded to the requests
of such proclamations. It would be a
nice question, if one could imagine that
it could ever be raised, to know to
what extent the president's authority
would allow him to order flags at half
mast on the capitol. While his author
ity would not extend over the em
ployees of the senate and house, yet
the capitol itself for many years was
in fact controlled exclusively by him
so far as the care of the building is
concerned, and the superintendent of
the building is today appointed by him
without confirmatory action on the
part of the senate.
As a matter of fact, the capitol has
for years been under the direct control
of the committees on appropriations of
the two houses of congress, but that
control has been accorded them by the
failure of the president to give any or
ders to the architect or more lately to
the superintendent of the capitol. If
he should order that official to fly flags
over the capitol at half mast and the
order should be disobeyed, he would
have power to dismiss him and appoint
some one else in his place without the
concurrence of either branch of con
gress, except so far as the appropria
tion for the official's salary would be
involved. These are practically moot
questions, -but they occasionally form
interesting subjects for fireside talks
when flags are half'masted in response
to presidential proclamations.—Wash
Thumb Nail Pictures.
In collections, centuries old, to be
seen in both China and Japan are
specimens of the most remarkable
drawings in the world, pictures of all
kinds drawn with the thumb nail. The
nails of the thumbs on the left hands
of the artists of these are allowed to
grow to an enormous length, some
times to a foot or eighteen inches, and
are then pared down to a pen shaped
point. Dipping this oddly constructed
pen in beautiful vermilion or sky blue
Ink, the only kinds of ink used in these
sacred thumb nail drawings, the artist
gracefully outlines his work.
Occasionally the bold touches from
the studio of a master in this depart
ment of "high art" are life size and
are sketched by a few sweeps of the
artist's arm. Like other pictures and
sketches of the orient, these sacred
thumb nail pictures are mounted and
rolled up like scrolls.
According to the late Richard A.
Proctor, says the London Chronicle,
the phrase "I guess," to English ears
so ridiculous, is really Identical with
the old expression, "I wis," meaning
"I know." The word "guess" has
changed its meaning entirely in Eng
land, but has partly preserved it in
America, where of course the native
says "I guess" when he is more or less
in a state of certainty. There are many
other examples of words that have
played fast and loose with "g" and
"w," such as "guardian" and "ward
en," "guard" "and "ward," "guichet"

Patience With Eccentricity.
Many of the leading people in Eng

with a feeling almost akin to reverent
delight when he chose to behave like
an ignorant boor in their .drawing
rooms, even taking his seat, it is said,
unbidden in the presence of the queen.
This generation, however, has little pa
tience with such eccentricities.
