Now is the time that every one should take a spring tonic to strengthen tha system and pre pare for the extra demands of Nature. Every spring the system is thoroughly over hauled there is a general house cleaning going on within. The impurities that have been accumu lating for a year must be got ten rid of and the system reno vated and prepared for the siege of summer. Unless Nature is as sisted in this task, the strain on the system is too severe, and a breakdown is the result. Some people neglect to supply this as sistance, and as a result they are overcome by an enervating, de pressed feeling, their energies re lax, appetite fails, and they are totally disabled for a season. Everybody just now needs a tonic, and Swift's Specific S.S.S.Blood is logically the best tonic on the market. The general health needs building up, hence a tonic is needed that is entirely harmless. S. S. S. is purely vegetable, and is the only blood remedy that is guaranteed to contain no potash, mercury, or other harmful mineral ingredient. Iiis Nature's remedy, being made frorn roots and herbs gathered from Nature's great storehouse. It thoroughly cleanses the blood of all impurities, tones up the gen eral health, renews the appetite and imparts new life and vigor to the entire system. Dangerous typhoid fever and other prevalent summer diseases seldom attack a person whose system is thoroughly cleansed and toned up with S. S. S. in the spring. Get S. S. S. and be pre pared.

His Life Was Sacrificed That Wc Slight Live Ir. Talmage'n Kaatcr Sermon. Dr. Talmage's text Sunday was Heb. fx., 22: "Without shedding of blood is no remission." John G. Whittier, the last of the great school of American pcets that made the last quarter of this century brilliant, asked ine in the White moun tains, one morning after prayers, in which 1 had given out Cowper's famous hymn about "The Fountain Filled With Mood," "Do you really believe there is a literal application of the blood of Christ to the soul?'' My neg ative reply then is my negative reply now. The Bible statement agrees with all physicians, and all plysiologists, and all scientists, in saying that the blood is life, and in the Christian religion it means simply that Christ life was given for our life. Hence that all this talk of men who say the Bi ble story of blood is disgusting, aud they don't want what they call the "slaugh ter house religion," only shows their incapacity or unwillingness to look through the figure of speech toward the thing signified. The blood that, on the darkest Friday the world ever saw, oozed, or trickled, or poured from the brow, and the side, and the hands, and the feet of the Illustrious Sufferer, back of Jerusalem, in a few hours coagulated and dried up, aud forever disappeared; and if man had depended on the application of the liter al blood of Christ, there would not have been a soul saved for the last 18 cen turies. In order to understand this red word of my text, we only have to exercise as much common sense in religion as we do in everything else. l'ang for pang, hunger for hunger, fatigue for fatigue, tear for tear, blood for blood, life for life, we see every day illustrat ed. The aet of substitution is no nov elty, although I hear men talk as though the idea of Christ's suffering substituted for our suffering were something abnormal, something dis tressingly odd, something' wildly eccen tric, a solitary episode in the world's histor-; when 1 could take you out In to this cit- and before sundown point to you 500 cases of substitution and voluntary suffering of one in behalf of another. At 2 o'clock to-morrow afternoon go among the places of business or toil. It will be no difficult thing for you to find men who, by their looks, show you that they are overworked. They arc prematurely old. They are hasten ing rapidly toward their decease. They have gone through crisis in business that shattered their nervous system and pulled on the brain. They have a shortness of breath, and a pain in the back of the head, and at night an in somnia that alarms them. 113 arc they drudging at business early and late? For fun? No; it would be dif ficult to extract any amusement out of that exhaustion. Because they are avaricious? In many cases, no. Be cause their own personal expenses arc lavish? No; a few hundred dol lars would meet all their wants. The simple fact is, the man is enduring all that fatigue and exasperation, and wear and tear, to keep his home pros perous. There is an invisible .line reaching from that store, from that bank, from that shop, from that scaf folding, to a quiet scene a few blocks away, and there is the secret of that business endurance. He is simply the champion of a homestead, for which he wins bread, and wardrobe, and educa tion, and prosperity, and in such battle 10,000 men fall. Of ten business men whom I bury nine die of overwork for others. Some sudden diseasa finds them with no power of resistance, and thev are cone. Life for life. Blood forVvlood. Substitution! At 1 o'clock to-morrow morning, the hour when slumber is most uninter rupted and profound, walk amid the dwelling houses of the city. Here and there you will find a dim light, be cause it is the household custom to keep a subdued light burning; but most of the houses from base to top are as dark as though uninhabited. A merciful God has sent forth the archangel of sleep, and he puts his wings over the city. But yonder is a clear ligrht burning, and outside on a window casement a glass or pitcher containing food for a sick child; the food is sit in the fresh air. This is the sixth night that mother has sat up with that sufferer. She has to the last point obeyed the physician's prescription, not giving a drop too much or too little, or a mo ment too soon or too late. She is very anxious, for she has buried three chil dren with the same disease, and she prays and weeps, each prayer and sob ending with a kiss of the pale cheek. By dint of kindness she gets the little one through the ordeal. After it is all over, the mother is taken down. Brain or nervous fever sets in, and one day she leaves the convales cent child with a .mother's bless ing, and goes up to join the three departed ones in the kingdom of Heaven. Life for life. Substitution! The fact is that there are an uncounted number of mothers who, after they have navigated a large family of chil dren through all the diseases of infancy, and got them fairly started up the flowering slope of boyhood and girl hood, have only strength enough left to die. They fade away. Some call it consumption; some call it nervous pros tration; some call it intermittent or malarial indisposition; but I call it martyrdom of the domestic circle. Life for life. Blood for blood. Sub stitution! Or perhaps a mother lingers long enough to sec a son get on the wrong road, and his former kindness becomes rough reply when she expresses anxiety about him. But she goes right on, looking -carefully after his apparel, re membering his every birthday with some memento, and when he is brought home worn out with dissipation, nurses him till he gets well and starts him again, and hopes, and expects, and prays, and counsels, and suffers, un til her strength gives out and she fails. She is going, and attendants, bending over her pillow, ask her if she has any message to leave, and she makes great effort to say some thing, but out of three or four min utes of indistinct utterings they can catch but three words; "My poor boyl" The simple fact is she died for him. Life for life. Substitution. About thirty-eight years ago there went forth from our northern and southern homes hundreds of thousand of men to do battle. All the poetry of war soon vanished and left them nothing but the terrible prose. They waded knee deep in mud. They slept in snow banks. They marched till their cut feet tracked the earth. They were swindled out of their honest rations and lived on mcrt not fit for a dog. They had jaws fractured, and eyes ex tinguished, and limbs shot away. Thousands of theia eried for water as the3' lay on the field the night after the battle and got it not. They were homesick, and received no message from their loved ones. They died in barns, iubushcs, in ditches, the buzzards of the summer heat the only attendants on their obsequies. No one but the infinite God who knoweth everything, knows the ten thousandth part of the length, and breadth, ana depth, and height of anguish of the northern and southern battlefield. Win- did these fathers leave their children and go to the frout, why did these-young in in, postponing the mar riage da-, start into the probabilities of never coming baek? For a principle they died. Life for life. Blood for blood, substitution! But we must not go so far. What is that monument in the cemetery? It is to the doctors who fell in the southern epidemics. Why go? Were there not enough sick to be attended in these northern latitudes? Oh, yes; but the doctor puts a few medical books in his valise, and some vials of medicine, and leaves his patients here in the hands of other physicians, and takes the rail train. Before he gets to the infected regions he passes crowded rail trains, regular and extra, taking the Hying and affrighted populations. He arrives in a eity over which a great horror is brooding. He go.-s from couch to couch, feeling the pulse and studj-ing symptoms, and prescribing day after clay, night after night, until a fellow physician says: "Doctor, you had bet ter go home and rest; you look misera ble." But ho can not rest while so many are suffering. On and on, until some morning finds him in a delirium, in which he talks of home, and then rises and says he must go and look after those patients. He is told to lie down, but he fights his attendants until he falls back, and is weaker and weaker, and dies for people with whom he had no kinship, and far away from his own family, and is hastily put away in a stranger's tomb, and only the fl.'th part of a newspaper line tells us of his sacrifice his name just men tioned among five. Yet he has touched the furthest height of sublimity in that three weeks of humanitarian service. He goes straight as an -arrow to the bosom of Him who said: "I was sick and ye visited me." Life for life. Blood for blood. Substitution! In the legal profession I sec the same principle of self-.-.acrifiee. In 1S40, William Freeman, a pauperized and idiotic Negro, was at Auburn, N. Y., on trial for murder. He had slain the entire Van Nest family. The foaming wrath of the community could be kept off him only by armed constables. Who would volunteer to be his coun sel? No attorney wanted to sacrifice his popularit3' by such an ungrateful task. All were silentsave one, a young lawyer with feeble voice, that could hardl3' be heard outside the bar, pale and thin and awkward. It was Wil liam II. Seward, who saw" that the prisoner was idiotic and irresponsible, and ought to be put in an as3-lum, rather than put to death, the heroic counsel tittering these beautiful words: "I speak now in the hearing of peo ple who have prejudged prisoner and condemned me for pleading in his be half. He is a convict, a pauper, a Ne gro, without intellect, sense or emo tion. My child with an affectionate smile disarms my care-worn face of its frown whenever I cross my threshold. The beggar in the street obliges me to give because he saj's, 'God bless 3-ou!' as I pass. My dog carresses me with fondness if I will but smile on him. My horse recognizes me when I fill his manger. What reward, what gratitude, what S3'inpathy and affec tion can 1 expect nere. There the pris oner sits. Look at him. Look at the assemblage around him. Listen to their ill-suppressed censures and ex cited fears, and tell me where among aiy neighbors or my fellow-men, where, even in his heart, I can expect to find a sentiment, a thought, not to say of reward or of acknowledgment, or even of recognition. Gentlemen, you may think of this evidence whijt you please, bring in what verdict you can, but I asseverate before Heaven and you, that, to the best of my knowledge and belief, the prisoner at the bar does not at this moment know why it is that m- shadow falls on 3'ou instead of his own." The gallows got its victim, but the post mortem examination of the poor creature showed to all the surgeons and to all the world that the public were wrong, and William II. Seward was right, and that hard, stony step of obloquy in the Auburn courtroom was the first step of the stairs of fame up which he went to the top, or to within one step of the top, that last denied him through the treachery of American politics. Nothing sublimer was ever seen in an American courts room than William II. Seward, with out reward, standing between the furious populace and the loathsome imbecile. Substitution. In the realm of the fine arts there was as remarkable an instance. A brilliant but hypercritical rainter, Joseph William Turner, was met by a volley of abuse from all the art galler ies of Europe. His paintings, which have since won the applause of all civilized nations, "The Fifth Plague of Egypt," "Fisherman on a Lee Shore in Squally Weather," "Calais Pier," "The Sun Rising Through Mist," and 'Dido Building Carthage," were then targets for critics to shoot at. In defense of this outragconsly abused man, a young author of 21 years, just one year out of college, came forth with his pen, and wrote the ablest and famous essay on art that the world ever saw, or ever will see John Rus kin's "Modern Painters." For 17 years this author fought the battles of the maltreated artist, and after, in pov erty and brokenheartcdness, the paint er had died, and the public tried to un do their cruelties toward him by giv ing him a big funeral and burial in St. Paul's cathedral, his o'.d-time friend took out of a tin box 19,000 pieces of paper containing drawings by the old painter, and through many weary and uncompensated months assorted and arranged them for public observa tion. People say John Ruskin in his old days is cros, misanthropic and morbid. Whatever lie may do that he ought not to do, and whatever he may say 'that he ought not to say between how and his death, he will leave this world insolvent as far as it has any capac ty t" pay this author's pen for its ehivalrie and Christian defense of a poor pa'nter's pencil. John Ruskin or William Turner. Blood for blood. Substitution! What an exalting principle this vhich leads one to suffer for another! Nothing so kindles enthusiasm or awakens eloquence, or chimes poetic canto, or moves nations. The princip le is the dominant one in our religion Christ the Mart3T, Christ the Celes tial Hero, Christ the Defender, Christ the Substitute. No new principle, for it was old as human nature; but now on a grander, wider, higher, deeper and more world-resounding scale. The shepherd boy as a champion for Israel with a sling toppled the giant of the Philistine braggadocio in the dust; but here is another David who, for all the armies of churches militant and riumphant, hurls the Goliath of perdi tion into defeat, the clash his brazen armor like an explosion at Hell Gate. Abraham had at God's command agreed to sacrifice his son Isaac, and the same: God just in time provided a ram of tho thicket as a substitute; but thcrc is an other Isaac bouad for the altar, and no hand arrests the sharp edges of lacera tion and death, and the universe shiv ers and quakes aud recoils and groans at the horror. All good men have for centuries been trying to tell whom this substi tute was like, and every comparison, inspired and uninspired, evangelistic, prophetic, apostolic and human falls short, for Christ was the Great Un like. Adam, a type of Christ, because he came directly from God; Noah a type of Christ, because he delivered his own family from deluge; Melehisedec a tj-pe of Christ, because he had no predecessor or successor; Joseph a tjpc of Christ, because he was east out by his brethren; Moses a t-pc of Christ, because he was a deliverer from bondage; Joshua a type of Christ, be cause he was a conqueror; Sumsoa a type of Christ, because of his strength to slay the lions and carr3' off the iron gates of impossibility, Solomon a type of Christ, in the affluence of his do minion; Jonah a typj of Christ, be cause of the stormy sea in which he threw himself for the rescue of others; but put together Adam, and Noah, aud Melchisedic, and Joseph, and Moses, and Joshua, and the3 would not make a fragment of a Christ, a quar ter of a Christ, the half of a Christ, or the millionth part of a Christ. He forsook a throne and sat down on His own footstool. He came from the top of plory to the bottom of humiliation, nnd changed a circumf er ence seraphic for a circumference dia bolic. Once waited on b3' angels, now hissed at by brigands. From afar and high up He came down; past meteors swifter than they; by starry thrones, Himself more lustrous; past larger worlds to smaller worlds; down stairs of firmaments. and from cloud to cloud, aud through the tree tops and into the camel's stall, to thrust His shoulder under our burdens and thru-.t the lances of pain through His vitals, and wrapped Himself in all the agonies which we deserve for our misdoing.s, and stood on the splitting decks of a foundering vessel, amid the drenching surf of tlie sea, and passed midnights on the mountains amid wild beasts of prey, nnd stood at the point where all earthly and infernal hostilities charged on Him at once with their keen sa bers our Substitute! When did attorney ever endure so much for a pauper client, or physician for the patient iu the lazaretto, or mother for the child in membranous croup, as Christ for us, and Christ for you, and Christ for me? Shall any man or woman or child in this audience who has ever suffered for another find it hard to under stand this Chrlstly suffering for us? Shall those whose sympathies have been wrung in behalf of the un fortunate have no appreciation of that one moment which was lifted out of all the ages of eternit3 as most con spicuous, when Christ gathered up all the sins of those to be redeemed under His one arm, and said: "I will aton for those under my right arm, and will heal all those under my left arm. Strike me with all thy glitteringshafts, O Eternal Justice! Roll over me with all thy surges, ye oceans of sorrow?" and the thunderbolts struck Hi in from above, and the seas of trouble rolled up from beneath, hurricane af ter hurricane, and cyclone after cy clone, and then -and there in the pres ence of Heaven and earth and hell, yea, all worlds witnessing, the price, the bitter price, the transcendant price, the awful price, the glorious price, the infinite price, the eternal price was paid that set us free. "A word to the wise is sufficient" and a word from the wise should be sufficient, but you ask, who are the wise? Those who know. The oft re peated experience of trustworthy per sons may be taken for knowledge. Mr W. M. Terry says Chamberlain's Cough Remedy given better satisfaction than any other in the market.

Our plan is a new application of an old principle, and is based up- on the actual experience of successful life insurance companies, cover ing a period of over 200 years. The same principles govern both, only WE pay while you LIVE. THEY pay when you DIE. WE offer the INVESTMENT features. THEY protect in case of DEATH. With them, death is the moving policy; with us, a definite and fixed matures the policy. INSURANCE IS A LAW OF AVERAGE. They figure on so many men out of a thousand dying we figure on so many policies, They kill the man we kill the policy. There is no reason why a man should die to reap the licn fld of his investment. We return an average of $2.30 for every dollar paid us, and j-et we assume an obligation less than one-third as great as has been assumed and paid for years by the leading life insurance companies of America. OTJPfc 3IISSION. Only about twenty (20) per cent, of the people are insutable. Only the sound and healthy, ivlio least need it's advantages, can obtain life insurance. Why should there not be a means provided whereby the ofchfr eighty (So) per cent, of the population can carry an invest ment the same as the favored few who can get life insurance? Our mis sion is to open the door to the entire population to enjoy the same or greater benefits for an equal or less expenditure, considering the ad vantage to be derived, and that those advantages may be enjoyed during life by the one making tbe investment. NOTHING SUCCEEDS LIKE SUCCESS. That our plan is popular and based upon sound business princi pies, is evidenced by our large and increasing membership, as shown by our remarkable 'Exhibit of Growth, See literature. We court the clysest scrutiny and most thoroug investigation. No statement made that cannot be verified by actual results. Others Make Money. Why Not You? The endorsement given this Company hy the investment of bankers, law yors, merchants, ministers, doctors, railroad men, mechanics in fact, men of business sagacity in every vocation of life is an evidence of the soundness of our system.
