Millions are expended every year in a fruitless effort fr relief from the torturing pains of Rheumatism. Potash, the various alkalies and mineral salts, baths, electricity, plasters and liniments are faithfully and patiently tried without success, and at last the despondent, pain-racked sufferer, hopeless and per haps moneyless, must hobble through life on crutcjics or spend the greater part of time in the invalid chair. The old methods of treating Rheuma tism will be abandoned when the disease is better understood. It is the height of folly to dose with acids an already tw acid blood ; to cure a dis ordered stomach with medicines that further irritate and nauseate, and this is just what the treatment that is usually prescribed does. To build up the constitution and purify the blood is the only rational treatment for Rheuma tism, and for this purpose S. S. S. is pre-eminently the greatest and most reliable medicine ever discovered. It is a simple vegetable blood purifier and tonic, but combines all the properties that make a perfect and safe cure for Rheumatism. There is nothing in it to inflame the stomach ; there is everything in it to build you up and purify the diseased blood. Whether the pains be muscular or articular, no matter in what part of the body, they are caused by an over acidity of the blood, and so long as this poisoned blood circulates through the system the pains and aches Will continue. with the Intention of sending us all t ) the bottom. It could enslly have Iichi done when we first nrrlved nnd U-roie j we knew whut kind of people we had j to deal with. It was simply n mirac le , that I escaped n serious dlsuster. for If the cylinder lieail hud been knocked out with the high pressure of sb-am I whs cnrrylng the side of the ship would have gone with It." The Chllenna showed their nnlmoslty n all aorls or petty ways. One r,r their favorite tricks wna lo run their toriedo bonis nlmut the ship, using her Hpimrently us n target. At last one of the honts missed his stern by less than six feet. The following entry from Lis Journal shows his feelings nt the time. "I then sow the olllcer In chnrge of the drills nnd told him that he ccrtnlnly had great confidence In the steering genr of his torpedo boats; Hint If any thing Jammed so that one of them struck me I would blow her bottom out. He replied that the water of tho harbor belonged to his government and that ho proposed to use It for the pur pose of drilling his boats. I nnswered that I was fully aware of the owner ship of which he linil spoken, hut that the Yorktown nnd the paint on her be longed to the United States and that neither must he defaced by his tor pedo boats. After this Incident they did uot run nt us so much, though the papers encouraged them to do so." When Captain Kvnn? went to the opening of the Kiel canal as command er of the New York, he hobnobbed with royal and Imperial personages.

Then we went through tho gun deck nnd out on to the forecastle, where he asked how long It would titko to close till tho watertight compartment doors. I re piled that In tho daytime we could do It In "0 seconds, but at night It might reiiulro two minutes. Much to my sur prise he usked If I would mind doing It for hltn. Of course I had to say yes, nml when I tried to blow the siren, the signal to close Ihu watertight doors, there wns not steam enough, aud the bti-ssisl thing would not blow. The emperor thought he had me and said, Now, yon see, cnptnln. that yon can't close your bulkheads.' Hut lie did not know everything. 'You will soo In n minute, sir." and I touched one of the general alarm buttons which culls alt bauds to quarters, mid In n few sec onds the men were swarming up like ruts.

II. Sattlaire, Insurance Aitcnt at Wap. nVoneta, 0.,wi entirely cured or a severe case of Rheumatism by the use or a few bottles of S. S. S. He writes as follows : "About one year bko I was almost totally disabled from a long attack of Rheumatism. My muscles were swollen and tender and myjolnts were so stiff that at times I was unable to iret about. Every bone and muscle In my body ached and pained me, my strength was greatly reduc ed, and was tn a very nervous and depressed condition on account of tho severe pain I suf fered. I took many different modlclnes and rub bed with innumerable liniments without receiv ing much benefit. I purchase! a bottle of your S. S. S. and when I had finished it was feeling much bettor. Could enjoy what I ate and walk without suffering much pain. A few more bottles cured me entirely, and I have not had a Rheu matlo pain In n year. I regard S. S. S. the great est medicine in the world, and have recommended it to other Rheumatic sufferers." NO USE FOR CRUTCHES. Mrs. James Kelt, of 1711 N. Y. Avenue, Washington, D. C, writes as follows : " I had an attack of Sciatic Rheumatism In Its worst form. The pain was so Intense I bocomo com pletely prostrated, and my condition was re garded as being very dangerous. I was attended by one of tho best doctors in Washlngtom, who Is also a member of the faculty of a leading medical college here. He told me to continue his prescription and I would get well. After having it filled twelve timos without receiving the slightest benefit, I decided to abandon his treatment. Having heard S. S. S. recommended for Rheumatism, I decided to give tho medlclno a trial, and after taking a few bottles was able to hob ble around on crutches, and very soon had no use for them at all, S. S. S. htrring cured me sound and well. All tho distressing pains have left me, my appetite has returned, and I am happy to be again rostored to perfect health." S.
