The skin is the seat of an almost end less variety of diseases. They are known by various names, but are all due to the same cause, acid and other poisons in the blood that irritate and interfere with the proper action of the skin. To have a smooth, soft skin, free from all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure and healthy. The muny preparations of arsenic and potash and the large number of face powders and lotions generally used in this class of diseases cover up for a short time, but cannot remove per manently the ugly blotches and the red, disfiguring pimples. Eternal vigilance Is the price of a beautiful complexion when such remedies are relied on. Mr. H. T. fthobe, 2704 Lucas Avenue, St Louis, Mo., says: "My daughter was afflicted for years with a disfiguring eruption on her face, which resisted all treatment. She was taken to two celebrated health Springs but received no bene fit. Mtiuy medicines were prescribed, but with out result, until we decided to try S. S. 3., and by the time the first bottle u as finished the erupt ion began to disappear. A dozen bottles cured he« completely auu left her akin perfectly smooth. She is now seventeen years old, anduota sign of the embarrassing disease has ever returned." S. S. S. is a positive, unfailing cure fot the worst forms of skill troubles. It is the greatest of all blood purifiers, and the only one guaranteed purely vegetable. "lad blood makes bad complexions. purifies and invigo rates the old and makes new, rich blood that nourishes the body and keeps the ■kin active and healthy and in propet condition to perform its part towards carrying off the impurities from the body If you have Eczema, Tetter, Aqne, Sail Rheum, Psoriasis, or your skin is rougli and pimply, send for our book on Blood and Skin Diseases and write our physi cians about your case.

NEW MINES NAMED ALTOONA Railroad Construction Has Been of Great Benefit,Opening Up Markets for Products -Farmers Pros perous—W m. Short Dead Oneonta, October 8.—(Special.)—Doc Smith and James Battles, two young men of this county, went to Attalla last Friday and attempted to drive across the railroad in front of a > oving train, with the result that Smith was fatally injured, his com panion badly hurt, the team killed and the wagon demolished. Altoona is *' v* name given to W. T. Un derwood’s new mines. He has a contract to furnish 50,000 tons of coal to the Louis ville and Nashville Railroad. Operations have not fairly begun there, yet his pay roll for last month amounted to over $2000. The coal is of superior quanity, abundant in Quantity and is easily worked. The railroad extension built by the Lou isville and Nashville from Oneonta to Al toona is about completed. The last rails will be put down next week. A change in the schedule of the Oneonta accommoda tion train may then occur. The railroads have been of great benefit to the county this year. The construction of the Oneonta branch of the Mineral and of the Stout’s Mountain branch on the main line opened avenues of employment to many men at good wages and afforded ! markets for farm products at remunerative prices. The crosstie, cord wood and tan bark industries have flourished, giving employment to many people during the idle season, thus scattering a considerable sum of money In the county. Cotton seed Is bringing 20 cents per bush el, causing the farmers to realize more money than they did from the lint at 5 cents. The wheat crop is the best raised in the county for fifteen years, and the sweet potato crop Is exceptionally fine. The persimmon crop is large and the opos sums fat and abundant. William Short, who was killed by a train in Chattanooga last Friday, was buried at Blountsville yesterday.

The Olympia Opera Company, one of the best repertoire organizations on the road, opened an engagement at the Auditorium last night, presenting "Said Pasha" to a large and appreciative audience. The com pany returns to Birmingham greatly strengthened after a run of one hundred and nineteen nights In New Orleans, and the opening presentation last night was highly creditable. Miss Nellie Wood as Serena and Miss Kendall as the Princess both possess good voices, which they use to excellent ad vantage in Stahl's pleasing comedy. Mr. A. C. Burgess and Mr. William Hicks, the comedians, and Messrs. Sylvian Langlols, Ed L. Weston and E. F. Semmens were especially good. The chorus is large and well trained. The company will appear again tonight, tomorrow at matinee, tomorrow night, and bring its engagement to a close with a Thursday night performance. •Maloney’s Wedding” ’’Malone;, a Wedding,” which has been so successful In the East and now on its initial tour to the Pacific coast. Is start ling with funny complications and situa tions. The company carries Its own band and orchestra and presents a novel dress street parade. The company will open an engagement of two nights and a matinee at the Audito rium Friday night. Sherlock Holmes The dramaizatlon of "Sherlock Holmes” is not, strictly speaking, a dramatization of Dr. Conan Doyle's brilliant stories of the detective, but an entirely novel play, Us j Incidents original with the dramatist, WU- | liam Gillette, who has never done anything but clean, original work. The hero nat urally embodies the characteristics and at tributes of the original ideal detective, but on the stage he Is a vast improvement. He acts better than he reads. The play Is advertised to "narrate and Illustrate an hitherto unpublished episode In the career t of the great detective,” and it develops into ' a new class of mclo-drama of the most thrilling and shivery description. It Is a triumph of authorship, and easily places Mr. Gillette more firmly at the head of , American authors. No adequate impression of the value and merits of this piece could be derived from reading the story of Its plot; they He In Its quality rather than in its character, and from beginning to end it Is Interesting, breathlessly interesting, 1 -----! Situation follows situation, each after anx ious expectancy, which keeps the nerves tense and the attention strained. Every minute of his stage life this Ideal detective is In mortal danger, but self-confidence never leaves him. From each peril he escapes by Ms wits, even though It be by the margin of a hair, and each time he brings his pursuit of the criminals nearer to a successful issue until at last he has them in the hollow of his hand. The con clusion is not only human, but also philo sophic, uplifting and satisfying. "Sherlock Holmes" will be the attraction at the Jefferson Theatre tonight. The cur tain will rise at 8 o’clock. Mistakes Will Happen The engagement of “Mistakes Will Hap pen," which will be at the Jefferson The atre on Thursday night, will be an im portant one to lovers of farcical comedy, and it Is presented by a company of whose excellence It Is claimed there can be no dcubt. Charles Dickson is of course the shining light of the organization, and be sides this favorite comedian the company Includes Alma W'hitsell, Nell McEwen, coralyn Maxwell, Lottie Hyde, David Con ger, Harry McRae Webster, Carter B. ..eaver and William Webb. It Is doubtful if a better company of fun-makers was ever gotten together by Mr. Dickson. Mistakes Will Happen" is an amusing farcical comedy, telling a story that Is funny and full of situations and compli cations that are ridiculous in the extreme. DEFENDS REPUBLICANS Andrew D. White Addressed Students of Cornell University Ithaca, N. Y., October 8.—Andrew D. White, ambassador of the United States to Germany and first president of Corneil University, delivered an address to the stu dents of that institution today. President Schurman introduced Mr. White, who was given a hearty welcome. He spoke briefly on the past and present, and highly eulo gized Ezra Cornell, with whom he had worked during the infancy of the institu tion. In the course of his remarks he touched upon political issues now before the pub lic. He said that imperialism never came from the legitimate extension of territory. No republic had ever fallen as a result of the policy which the United States was now pursuing. Imperialism which we have most to fear, said Mr. White, is that of dema goglsm and the arraignment of class against class and section against section. He drewT a distinction between plutocracy such as existed in the Florentine republic and the rich in this country today. He said we have no plutocracy, for a number of fortunes which have accumulated have been gradually dispersed and in many cases contributed to benevolent purposes. So far as trusts are concerned, the disease, he said, is not peculiar to this country alone. It is to be found in all parts of the commercial world, and most careful diag nosis is necessary to determine a proper remedy. The speaker censured those who proposed remedies for such evils without first searching for causes. ACTION TAKEN Against Twenty-Three Chicago Fran chise Corporations Chicago, October 8.—In the County Court today a writ of mandamus to compel the Cook County Board of Assessors to flic with the county clerk a statement setting forth the capital stock and bonds of Chi cago’s great franchise corporations, was tiled in the Circuit Court today by Miss M. Goggin, head of the Chicago Teachers’ Federation.

Against this enormous sum the local tax ing boards have found only $32,278,315 worth of tangible property. It is to preclude the difference, $235,829,567, representing their franchises, from escaping examination that the suit is brought.
