Mrs Laura B Minis of SmithvilleQa
says A small pimple of p strawberry
color appeared on my cheek it soon
began to grow rapidly notwithstand

1 s
au tne case as
eye became terribly
inflamed and was so
swollen thatforquite
a while I could not
see The doctors
said I had Cancer of
the most malignant
type and after ex
hausting their efforts
without doing me
any good they gave
boneless When in
formed that my father had died from
the same disease they said I must die
as hereditary Cancer was incurable
At this crisis I was advised to try
SSS and in a short while the Cancer
began to discharge and continued to do
so for three months then it began to
heal I continued the medicine a while
longer until the Cancer disappeared en
tirely This was several years ago and
there has been no return of the disease

Tho Fifty fourth congress will bo held
remarkable principally for what it fail

tho number of bills and resolutions in
troduced it was a record breakor In
tho houso alone ovor 10400 bills and
8100 resolutions wore introduced and
roferred to tho various committees On
ly a fraction of theso passed tho houso
and fewer still becamo laws
Tho principal business of the congress
aside from tho passage of tho appropria
tion bills was limited to tho first ses
sion tho net results of which wcro tho
enactment into laws of tlio bills creating
tho commission to determine tho true
divisional line botweoiivVenczucla and

oxcepting the immigration bill and the
joint resolution fur an inttrusttibnul

ond session were of no general interest
Included in theso were 700 priyato pen

In another respect tho Fiftyfourth
congress was remarkable Tbis wps it
failure to pass ti siuglo bill providing
for public buildings Tho hqnsecalen
dar contained 106 bills of this class in
cluding the senate bill for a custom
houso in New York city Speakor Reed
however iu his determination to ro
duco the expenditure to the lowest pos
sible limit consistent with tho necessi
ties of the government sot his face
sternly against all legislation of this
character Notwithstanding this cir
cuinstanco the present congress is the
third in American history in which tho
appropriations luivo exceeded 1000
000000 If it is claimed these appro
priations be deducted from tho sum to
tal tho aggregato for the past two years
would bo littlo in excess of 1000000

No effort was made at tho last sessi
to call up tho bills admitting Arizona
Now Mexico and Oklahoma to state

houso wero a practical unit against tho
admission of any territories whioh aro
likely to send advocates of freo silver
to tho senate
Among the bills which passed the
house but havo not been acted upon in
tho senate aro the Morse bill to provont
tho selling of liquors in tho capitol tho
Brosius bill permitting tho establish
ment of national banks with a capital
of 20000 in towns of 4000 inhabit

Tho work of tho seuato during tho
past session has not been heavier than
usual Tbo number of bills introduced
generally runs up abovo 3000 aud this
session tho total has reached 8783
Much of tho timo of tho seuato has boon

Thom JVho Unvo Attained This Honor
Havo All llnon Motv of Force
It is a remarkablo fact that every
president of tho United States has been
a lawyer with tho exception of five
who havo como into ofilco on tho tido
of popular sympathy nnd admiration
for tboir services as great war gonerals
Lawyers are seldom created by for
tuitous circumstances or by tho influ
ence of their early surroundings and
tho significance of this romark will bo
Mado plainer when it is pointed out
that nearly every president has oyi
donced at an early ago a very decided
inclination toward tho profession of
law and this tendency among somo of
them could not be diverted by tho dic
tates of oxtremo poverty and tho total
lack of facilities for education
Many of them wero brilliant men
whoso education permitted them to
grasp a wido variety of technical sub
jects and who felt the pulse of tho sci
entific world in a general though not
decided way but dominating and col
oring nil their acts and thoughts was
tho ono great hereditary mainspring of
their lives how to know and under
stand nnd appreciate tho relation of
man to man government to govern
ment and finally to control and sway
thom through tho influence of their le
gal logic
There aro hosts of lawyers who daz
zle tho public mind by tho power and
vigor of their word picturing men who
enrry juries off their feet by wonderful
bursts of silver tongued eloquence and
yet they aro unfitted for the presiden
tial chiir simply because they do not
cd coi iict tLic ibir the beautiful rule
ill vcc is prklen
Our presidents without exception
martial and legal alike havo been not
ed for knowing when to keep thoir
mouths shut men who wero not inva
riably diplomatic in their uso of Eng
