Rheumatism Is a blood disease and only a blood reme dy can cure it. So many people make the mistake of taking remedies which at best are only tonics and cannot possi bly reach their trouble. Mr. Asa Smith, Greencastle, Indiana, says: "For years I have suffered with Sciatic Rheuma tism, which the best physicians were un able to relieve. I took many patent medicines but they did not seem to reach my trouble. I gradually grew worse until I was un able to take my food or handle myself in any way; I was abso lutely helpless. Three bottles of S.S.S. re lieved me so that I was soon able to move my right ariri; before long I could walk across the room, and when I had finished one dozen bottles was cured completely and am as well as ever. I now weigh 170." A Real Blood Remedy. S.S.S. cures Scrofula, Cancer, Eczema, and any form of blood troubles. If you have a blood disease, take a blood medi cine S.S.S.

Address Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga. The best of other bindings is that they are " just as good " a. Thev were quite alone. The major sat down m a bowlder and pointed to another, rhe man, however, remained sullenly rtandiug where he was, as if to accent is strongly as possible tho enforced jompauiousbip. Either the major was too self alworbed to notice it or accepted it as a satisfactory characteristic of the half breed race. He continued confl Jeutly: "New, look here, Tom! I want to leave this cursed hole and get clear put 3f the state. Anywhere over the Ore gon line into British Columbia or to tho :oast, where I can get a coasting vessel lown to Mexico. It will cost money, ant I've got it. It will cost a lot of risks, but I'll take them. I want sonie xxiy to help me some one to share risks with me and some one to share my iuck if I succeed. Help to put me on ihe other side of the border line by sea m land, and I'll give yon f 1,000 down before we start and 1, 000 when I'm safo." The half breed had changed his slouching attitude. It seemed more in dolent on account of tho loosely hang ing strap that had once held his haver sack, which was still worn in a sloven ly fashion over his shoulder, as a kind of lazy sling for his shiftless hand. "Well, Tom, is it a go? Yon can trust me, for you'll have the thousand in your pocket before you start. I can trust yon, for I'll kill you quickar than lightning if you say a word of this to any one before I go or play a single triok on me afterward" Suddenly the two men were rolling over and over in the underbrush. The half breed had thrown himself upon the major, bearing him down to the ground. The haversack strap for an instant whirl ed like the loop of a lasso in the air and descended over the major's shoulders, pinioning his arms to his side. Then the half breed, tearing open his ragged blouse, stripped off his waist belt and as dexterously slipped it over the ankles of the struggling man. It was all over in a moment. Neither had spoken a word. Only their rapid panting broke the profound silence. Each probably knew that no outcry would be heard. For tho first time the half breed eat down. But there was no trace of tri umph or satisfaction in his face, which wore the same lowering look of disgust as be gazed npou the prostrate man. "I want to tell you first, " he said, slowly wiping his face, "that I didn't kalkilate upon doin this in this yer kind of way. I expected more of a stand up fight from you more risk in gettin yon out of that bole and a different kind of a man to tackle. I never expected yon to play into my hand like this, and it goes against me to hev to take advan tage of it." "Who are you?" said the major pant ingly. "I'm the new sheriff of Siskyou. " He drew from beneath his begrimed shirt a paper wrapping, from which he gingerly extracted with the ends of his dirty fingers a clean legal looking fold ed paper. "That's my warrant. I've kept it fresh for you. I reckon you don't care to read it. You've seen it afore. It's just the same as t'other sheriff had what you shot." "Then this was a plan of yours and that whelp's escort?" said the major. "Neither him nor the escort knows any more about it than you," returned the sheriff slowly. "I enlisted as Injin guide or scout ten days ago. I deserted just as reg'lar and nat'rallike when we passed that ridge yesterday. I could be took tomorrow by the sojers if they caught sight of me and court martialed. It's as reg'lar as that. But I timed to have my posse under a deputy draw you off by an attack just as the escort reach ed the ridge. And here I am. " "And you're no half breed?"

Nor could he understand another thins which wa evident. After the first shock of resistance the major had exhibited none of the indignation of a betrayed man, but actually teemed to accept the situation with a calmness that his cap tor lacked. His voice was quite unemo tional as he said: "And how are you going to git me away from here?" "That's my lookout ai d needn't trou ble you, major, but seeing as how con fidential you've been to me 1 don't mind tellin you. Last uight that posse of mine that you 'skunked, you know, halted at the crossroads till them sojers went by. They had only to see them to know that I had got away. They'll hang round the crossroads till they seo my signal oa top of tbe ridge, and then they'll make another show agen that pass, lour men will have their hands full, I reckon, without huutin for you or noticin the three men of mine that will come along this ridge where the sojers come yesterday to help me get you down in the same way. You see, major, your little trap in that gully ain't in this fight We're the other side of it I ain't much of a soldier, bnt I reckon I've got you there, and it's all owing to yon. I ain't, " he added gloom ily, "takin mnch pride U it myself." "I shouldn't think you would," said the major. "And look here! I'll double that offer I made you just now. Set me down just as I am on the deck of some coasting vessel, and I'll pay you $4,000. You may have all the glory of having captured me here and of mak ing your word good before your possa But you can arrange afterward on the way to let me give you tho slip some where near Sacramento." The sheriff's face actually brighten ed. "Thanks for that, major. I was gettin a little ick of my share in this job; but, by God, you've put some sand in ma Well, then, there ain't gold enough in all Californy to make me let you ga You hear me? So drop that I've took you and took ya'U remain un til I land you in Sacramento ail. I don't want to kill you, though your life's forfeit a dozen times over, and I reckon you don't care for it either way, but if you try any tricks on me I may have to inuiiu you to make von coma along comf 'ablo and easy. I ain't ban kcrin arter that either, but come you shall." "Give yonr signal and have an end of this," said the major curtly. The sheriff looked at him again cu riously. "I never had my bauds in an other man' pockets before, major, but I reckon I'll have to take your derrin gers from yours. " Ho slipped his hand into the major's waistcoat and secured the weapons. "I'll have to trouble you for your sash, too," he said, unwinding the knitted silken girdle from tho cap tivo's waist. "You won't want it. You ain't walkin, and it'll come in handy to me just now. " TT 1 . . xie Deui over, ana passing it across tho major's breast with more gentleness aud solicitude than he had yet shown secured him in an easy sitting posture against the tree. Then after carefully trying tho knots and straps that hold his prisoner he turned and lightly bound ed up the hill. He was absent scarcely ten minutes, yot when he returned the major's eyes were half closed. But not his lips. "If you expect to hold me until your posse comes, you had better take me to some less exposed position," he said dryly. "There's a man just crossed the gully coming into the brush below in the wood." "None of your tricks, major. " "Look for yourself. " The sheriff glanced quickly below him. A man with an as on his shoulder could be seen plainly making his way through the underbrush not a hundred yards away. The sheriff instantly clap ped his hand upon his captive's mouth, but at a look from his eyeB took it away again. "I soe, " he said grimly. "You don't want to lure that man withtn reach of my revolver by calliu to him." "I could have called him while you were away, ' ' returned the major quietly. The sheriff, with a darkened face, loosened the Bash that bound his pris oner to the tree, and then lifting him in his arms began to ascend the hill cautiously, dipping into the heavier shadows. But the ascent was difficult, the load a heavy one, and the sheriff was agile rather than muscular. After a few minutes' climbing he was forced to pause and rest his burden at the foot of a trea But the valley and the man in the underbrush were no longer in view. "Come," said the major quietly, "unstrap my ankles, ana i ll walk up. We'll never get there at this rate." The sheriff paused, wiped bis grimy face with his grimier blouse and stood looking at his prisoner. Then ho said slowly: "Look yerl Wot's yer little game? Blessed if I kin follow suit." For the first time the major burst in to a rage. "Blast it all! Don't you see that if I'm discovered here in this way thero's not a man in the Bar who would believe that I walked into your trap not a man, by God, who wouldn't think it was a trick of yours and mine together." "Or," interrupted the sheriff, slowly fixing his eyes on his prisoner, "not a man who would ever trust Major Over stone for a leader again. " "Perhaps," said tho major unmov edly again. "I don't think either of us would ever get a chance of being trust ed again by any one. " The sheriff still kept his eyes fixed on his prisoner, his gloomy face growing darker under its griiuo. "That aia't the reason, major. Lito and death mean much more to you thau they do to mo in this yer game. I know that you'd kill me quicker nor lightuin if you gt the chance. You know that I'm takiu you to tho gallows." "The reason is that I want to leave Wynyard's Bar, " said the major coolly. "And even this way out of it will suit mo. A War Reminiscence.

When one encounters in print the life story of some scarred veteran of the civil war, a feeling of admiration and sympathy is the certain result. Accustomed though we are to tales of heroism and suffering in everyday life, there is something peculiarly attrac tive about these old war records, serv ing, as they do, as a sacred passport to the heart of every, truo American. Thousands fonnd their rest on the field of carnaga or in the hospital, but their comrades, when the struggle was over and tho victory won, returned to their homes and began anew the battle of life. John B. Scace, the widely-known contractor and building mover of Al bany, N. Y., has had an unusually in teresting life, and when seen by a re porter recently at his home. No. 15 Bradford Street, told of bis many ex periences and adventures while serv ing under the old flag in the late war. Although having endured all the hard ships and privations of life in the ranks, Mr. Scace bears his more than half a century of years with an elastic step and a keen mind, taking an active interest in private and pub lio affairs. Mr. Scace is a member of Berkshire Lodge, No. 52, I. O. O. F. He en listed in the army in 1862, in Company A, Forty-ninth Massachusetts Volun teer Infantry, serving under Col. W. F. Bartlett, First Brigade, First Divis ion, Ninteenth Corps, with which he paritcipated in some of the hottest battles of the war, including Port Hudson, Donaldsonville and Plain Store, where he was wounded. His time being out, he was discharged, but soon re-enlisted as sergeant in Company A, Sixty-first Regiment, Masachusetts Volunteer Infantry. He was in the battle of Hatcher's Run, the fight about Petersburg and the battle of Sailor's Creek. After his honorable discharge, June, 4, 1865, Air. Scace returned to Albany and settled down once again to bis busi ness and social interests. He has resided in the city ever since. It would seem that now, of all times, his peace and happiness would have been uninterrupted. Such was not to be the case, for four years ago, while engaged in superintending the raising of the immense smokestack of the Al bany Electric power house, the lever of a loosened windlass struck him a heavy blow across the back. The effect of the blow was not at first ap parent, he being able to leave his bed in a few days. But the worst was to follow, for without warning he was seized with sciatic rheumatism in all its virulence. Untold agony followed, Said Mr. Scace, "I could not sleep for the pain. No one will know the tortures the rheumatism gave me. I A Schilling St Company Sail Francisco rs (To Bit ConriNutu.) The fruit-grcwers of the Willamette valley are quite generally coming to the conclusion that peach roots are not a good foundation for " pruno trees. There are some growers who are still firmly in favor a of, 'peach roots but they are iu a small minority. Fort Wil lamette valley where the soil is gener ally cold and wot the Myrobolan stock givesjbetter satisfaction. Experiments are also being made with other plum stocks which promise well. don t know how I lived during those days. I became litle more than skin and bones, and it seemed like life didn't have anything but suffering in it. Cures ? I tried every so-called rheumatic cure that was ever invented. I gave all of them a good trial before I stopped taking them. My friends and neighbors recommended remedy after remedy that they heard of, but my rheumatism went on just the same. Well, after I had almost had the life tortured out of me, I came across a newpaper account of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I thought I might as well add another name to the list as not, so I ordered some of my druggist. "I tell you, I was glad in those days to hear of anything that could give me any hope at all. Yes, I got them, and before I had taken two boxes that pain began to leave me. Why, I couldn't understand it. I couldn't imagine myself being cured. But be fore I had take n a half-dozen of those boxes I was cured. The suffering which had made my life almost un bearable for so long had disappeared. I was a new man. "I began to get strong. I picked up in flesh, and I went back to my busi ness with all the vigor and vim of a young man. I think everyone who knows me will tell you what it did for me. Pink Pills is the grandest medicine ever discovered, and if my recommendation will do it any good I want you to use it. I hope others will hear of it and be benefited as I have been. Everyone should hear of it. I can't say too mnch for them," Mr. Scace exclaimed, enthusiastically, in conclusion. This is but one of the many cases in which Pink Pills have taken such a beneficent part in the history of humanity. Mr. Scace is now enjoying the fruits of an unusually large business managed solely by himself, and covering almost tbe entire eastern portion of the State. Mr. Scace is also an ivory carver of marked ability, which he follows sole ly for his own pleasure. Many little trinkets, carved by the light of the camp-fire, attest his skill in this direc tion. Far from being solicited to recom mend the curative which had taken such a load of misery from his life, in his gratitude his praise for it is un stinted and unceasing. And from his own statement one may easily Bee that when he does cease to sing its virtues, it will be to answer the last mustering in. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a condensed form, all the elements necessary to give new life and richness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. Tbey are also a specific for troubles peculiar to females, such as suppressions, irregularities and all forms of weakness. In men they effect a radical cure in all cases arising fiom mental worry, overwork or ex cesses of whatever nature. Pink Pills are sold in boxes (never in loose bulk) at 50 cents a box or six boxes for 3.50, and may be had of all druggists, or direct by mail from Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Sehenectady.N.Y. WHEN DEATH IS REAL. j Tratric Fatalltiea that Hare Uccarrad 1 Isoa tba Magr. The recent calamity n a London stage in which an actor actually killed a ictiow ptayer in tue scene where ht was supposed to run bim ihrotif h with a ' dagger has brought to light numerous ' former occurrence of a similar charac ter. The great Roman actor Roielus, en acting At reus, was so carried away that be fell upon a slave and killed him on the spot Farquliar. In Dryden's "Indian Emperor, wounded a fellow actor so dangerously that be was said to have died from bis wounds. In Stockholm, early In the sixteenth cen tury, an actor who was playing Lon glnus In "The Mystery of the Passion." was so realistic in his playing that he pierced the mimic Christ so severely that his death on tbe croas was actual. Many years ago, an Italian nrtlut nam ed Lombard!, playing in "Antigone," had to turn bis sword from his father's breast to bis own. and did It so cer tainly that be fell dead. Upon the opening nlgbt of the pro duction of "Michael StrogofT In Lon don, In 1881, Mr. Charles Warner. In the title role, was set upon by the vll lain of the piece, and In the duet with daggers which ensued Mr. Warner was badly wounded. Barry Sullivan once attacked Richmond In "Klchnrd the Third" with auch vehemence that bis opponent's sword was struck from h! band and a serious accident barely averted. The elder Baron, a French actor of note, performing In "The Cld" of Cornellle, had to kick a sword out of his path and In so doing punctured bis foot; the matter was trifling nt first, but later on gangrene set in and the player died. Charles Kctuble, at one time playing Macbeth to Mrs. Siddon's Lady Macbeth, flung away a goblet with such violence that It shattered a chandelier above the great Sarah's head. That lady bore It without flinch ing, however. At the dress rehearsal of "The Huguenots" at Paris several years ago, the famous tenor Nouritt, in pretending to jump from a fourth-story window, Injured himself so that the piece had to be delayed for a week. At the final rehearsal of "Faust" the orig inal Mephlstopheles, Balanque, contriv ed to wear a pair of diabolical red wings. With these outspread, he rose from a trap in the first act, and, by touching a spring, these later became the conventional cloak. But the spring behaved badly, and the actor's face was horribly lacerated by the fluttering whalebone ribs, over which the cloth was arranged. Deaths from suddvn and unknown causes are frequent on the stage, aud It has generally seemed that the passing of the actor's eoul has always been at some moment when his words were particularly applicable to. the circum stance. Not long ago Fedci'lcl was playing "Faust" In Melbourne, nnd just after he uttered the last word before his descent to Hades be gave a sigh aud fell dead. At this actor's funeral, at the venerable clergyman finished say- Ing "In tbe midst of life we are in death," he fell lifeless. Paterson died while preparing Claudlo for execution In "Measure for Measure," saying of life "a breath thou art." Cummlngs, as Dumont In "Jane Shore," expired with quotation for God's mercy on his lips, and Palmer, as manager and actor, died as he exclaimed, "Oh, God! God! There is another and a better world!" A Texas Swing. Mr. R. B. Zimmerman, of Warren, has what Is probably the highest swing In Texas. The frame U made of pine logs seventy-eight feet long, which are set in the ground eight feet, making the swing seventy feet high. The cross piece Is six by six inches, heart, aud is fastened to the top of the upright pieces In such a way as to be as strong as If the frame was all of one piece. On the north side of the swing is a pole forty two feet high, at the top of which Is a pulley. The person who wishes to swing Is strapped In, if he or she de sires, and then takes hold of one end of the rope, the other end of which Is run through the pulley and fasteneJ to a team of horses. The horses are started off and the swinger is pulled to the top of the pole. When the top Is reached he drops the rope and Is at once launched Into space, sometimes go ing as high as 100 feet on tbe opposite side from the pole. Oue turn at the swing U generally euough to satisfy one for that evening. Since the erec tion of the swing Mr. Zimmerman's house has become a resort every even lug for the young people of Warren, and parties frequently come from Hy att and other neighboring towns to en Joy an evening In "tbe swing." Dallas News. Norway Spruce. The Norway spruce has been dis seminated throughout the world. It lias been a matter of Interest to en deavor to find fine specimens of this tree In Its native habitat, but the Bearch has been In vain. Nowhere do they attain the size or the beauty that we have them in America. In regions where the timber has been cut, we do not expect much In the second growth, but there are Immense tracts from which the lumber cannot be removed to any market; but there the trees merely look old without having attained great size or :em:trkable beauty.
