Surgical operations and flesh destroying plasters are useless, painful and dangerous, and besides, never cure Cancer.
No "matter how often a canccioos sore is removed, another tomes at or near the same point, and always in a worse form.
Does not this pcove conclusively that Cancer is a blood disease, and that it is folly to attempt to cure this deep-seated, dangerous
blood trouble bycutting or burning out the sore, which, after all, is only an outward sign of the disease?a place of exit for
the ^konf ja families through many generations, aud those whose ancestors have been afflicted with it are liable at any
Ume to be stricken with the deadly malady.

To cure a blood disease like this you must cure the entire blood system?remove every trace of the poison.
Cancer effectually and permanently but S. S. S.
S S. S. enters the circulation, searches out and removes all taint, and stops the formation of cancerous cells. No mere touic
? or ordinary blood medicine can do this. S. S. S. goes down to the very roots of the disease, and forces out the deadly |>oison,
allowing the sore to heal naturally jind permanently. S. S. S. at the same time purifies the blood aud builds up the general health.
-jmsllx? A little pimple, a lntrmless looking wart or mole, a lump in the breast, a cut or bruise that refuses to
heal under ordinary treatment, should all be looked upon with suspicion, as this is often the beginning of
a bad form of cancer.

A Word to Democrats.
To the Democratic Voters of Norfolk
As the City Democratic Primary
Election will be held on April 17th and
19th, all those who have to get trans?
fers should not fail to procure them at
once, as they must be registered not
later than Anrll 12th in order to vote
in this primary. It Is to the interest
and the duty of every voter to cast his
vote in the primary, as it is really more
important than the general election.
Heretofore a great many voters have
taken no interest in the primaries, and
did not vote and allowed a few to con?
trol. As a fellow voter lot me urge you
not to let this be the case in the com?
ing primary, but come to the polls,
every voter, and cast your vote anil
elect good men to the various city

opinion vvus given in May 1S99. After
referring to Spain's cession of the is?

"Thereupon the territory conveyed
became a part of the United States and
as such subject to the constitution. No
further action by Congress was neces?

not depend upon Congress for authori?
