THE SOURCE OF AUL DISEASE Every part of the body is dependent on the blood for nourishment and strength. When this life stream is flowing through the system in a state of purity and richness we are assured of perfect and uninterrupted health} because pure blood is nature's safe-guard against disease. When, however, the body is fed on weak. Impure or polluted blood, the system is deprived of its strength, disease germs collect, and the trouble is manifested in various ways. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashes and the different skin affections show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased condition as a result of too much acid or the presence of some Irritating humor. Sores and Ulcers a"? the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the blood, and Rheumatism, Ca tarrh, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all deep-seated blood disorders that will continue to grow worse as long as the poison remains. These impurities and poisons find their way into the blood in various ways. Often a sluggish, inactive condition of the system, and torpid state of the avenues of bodily waste, leaves the refuse and waste matters to sour and form uric and other acids, which are taken up by the blood and distributed throughout the circulation. : : Coming in contact with contagious diseases is another cause for the poisoning of the blood; we also breathe the germs and microbes of Malaria into our lungs, and when these get into the blood In sufficient quantity it becomes a car rier of disease instead of health. Som* are so unfortunate as to inherit bad blood, perhaps the dregs of some old constitutional disease of ancestors is handed down to them and they are constantly annoyed and troubled with it.

No. 52 1 TAFT FINISHES TRIP AND HAS RESUMED DUTIES AT WASHINGTON. He Scouts Any Id ea of War With Japan—Says They Ars Too Intelli gent to Attribute Any Falee Motive to Cruise of Atlantic Fleet to Pacific Waters—Tells of ths Trip. William H. Taft, secretary of war, has returned from his trip around the world, bringing, renewed assurance of Japan's friendliness toward the United States, but declining to say anything with respect to the political situation in this country. He said he had been too long out of intimate touch with present affairs at home to discuss them in any way. One of Mr. Taft's interviewers had the temerity to ask: "Well, Secretary, tell us who is your choice for president." Amid general laughter, in which he heartily joined, the secretary replied: "I guess I will have to leave that to inference." Looking exceedingly well, the secre tary said he had taken daily five-mile walks on the decks of the President Grant during the 13 days* trip from Hamburg. "It is the height of foolishness to talk of possible war with Japan," de clared the secretary. "Japan does not desire war with us, and we certainly do not desire war with Japan. If there was any war spirit anywhere in Japan I failed to find the slightest note of it Everywhere there was talk of con tinued peace- I speak very confidently about this. Our trade relations with Japan are extensive and constantly growing. Japan's exports amount an nually to about $160,000,000, of which we take about one-third. The exports consist largely of mattings, laces, em broideries and other fancy work, in the production of which many people are interested. We, in turn, ship vast quan tities of flour, oil and such commodi ties to Japan. This sort of trade is a great pacificator." "What about the Pacific fleet?" "The sailing must have been a mag nificent sight. We have fine ships and a fine personnel, and as long as the Pacific ocean belongs to us as much as to anybody else I see no reason why we should not send our ships there on a practice cruise. The Japanese are too intelligent and high-minded to at tribute any false motive to the move ment. "The trip through Russia was made partly to save time and partly because I had crossed the Pacific six times and was rather anxious to see the terri tory. My visit was in no sense official. So many courtesies were shown me from the moment I put foot on Rus sian soil that I could not have re fused, even had I desired to do so, the invitation to an audience of the em peror. I was much impressed by the emperor's personality, and his entire familiarity with current affairs, es pecially American politics. "At Moscow I had the rather novel experience of dining one day with an official who next day was made the target of a bomb. This was Governor General Guerschelmann. The ride through Siberia was most enlightening and gave one a different idea of that country from what it is generally con ceived to be. Especially is this true as to agriculture, minerals and popu lation. Western Siberia will probably undergo the same process of develop ment as our middle west, and I believe in time it will be the center of popu lation of the Russian empire. "I was "much pleased with conditions in the Philippines. They were much better than I had hoped for. The ini tial proceedings of the first Philippine assembly and its tendency to conserva tism, despite the supposed radical ma jority, were most gratifying. "In China the American residents Were anxious for reassurance as. to America's intention toward maintain ing the 'open door' policy. At the ban quet in Shanghai I endeavered to give this assurance."

New York, Dec. 24-—That Thomas Fortune Ryan, though an equal part ner, is only Kin* Leopold's oatspaw in the Congo, is asserted in a signed ar ticle in the American. "It is true," says the American, "that Ryan, with young Rockefeller and ethers, holds a concession of im mense value. But he does not con trol it. "When Leopold failed to draw Ital ian capital and labor to Africa he looked to Wall street as his only sal vation.--! don't know how much money the Ryan crowd gave, but it was an enormous amount. I do know, how ever, that with the money the old king began purchasing more shares. He had his agent find out Just how much stock he would need to have an equal Interest with the Ryan crowd. Then he acquired all the shares he needed. "His next move was to force them into an agreement that for every American or European employed by Ryan there must be a Belgian em ployed by the king. He then had the advantage of Ryan in every possible way. "Not only did the king insure a fat profit to himself from the American syndicate, but he fixed himself so he appears only as a shareholder in the syndicate. The territory he gave over to Ryan can not be interfered .with by Belgium or any other nation/, it has the protection of the stars and stripes." BEST PRESCRIPTION CAN BE EASILY MIXED AT HOME AND CURES RHEUMATISM. Full Directions to Make and Take This Simple Home-Made Fixture- Makes Kidneys P.iter Out Acids. When an eminent authority an nounced in the Scranton, Pa., Times that he had found a new way to treat that dread American disease, Rheuma tism, with just common, every-day drugs found in any drug store, the physicians were slow indeed to attach much importance to his claims. This was only a few months ago. Today nearly every newspaper in the coun try, even the metropolitan dailies, are announcing it and the splendid results achieved. It is so simple that any one can prepare it at home at small cost It is made up as follows: Get from any good druggist Fluid Extract Dan- delion, one-half ounce; Compound Kar gon, one ounce; Compound Syrup Sar saparilla, three ounces. Mix by shak ing in a bottle and take in teaspoon ful doses after each meal and at bed time. These are all simple ingredients, making an absolutely harmless home remedy at little cost. Rheumatism, as every one knows, is a Bymptom of deranged kidneys. It is a condition produced by the failure of the kidneys to properly filter or strain from the blood the uric acid and other matter which, if not eradicated, either in the urine or through the skin pores, remains in the blood, decomposes and forms about the joints and muscles, causing the untold suffering and de formity of rheumatism. This prescription is said to be a splendid healing, cleansing and invig orating tonic to the kidneys, and gives almost immediate relief in all forms of bladder and urinary troubles and back ache. He also warns people in a lead ing New York paper against the indis criminate use ot many patent medi cines. The Oldest City in the World. Dr. Henry Van Dyke explored the oldest living city in the world, Damas cus, in his recent trip in the orient, and found it as much the "typical city of the orient" as New York of the Oc cident. It has electric lights and: a slow trolley car, but, as Dr. Van Dyke explains, in the January number of Harper's Magazine, these modern in novations no more alter its oriental character than a bead necklace would alter the Venus ofLMilo. A just complaint is an accommoda tiom. The* Kidneys When they are weak, torpid, or stagnant, the whole system suffers. Don't neglect them at this time, but heed the warning of the aching back, the bloated face, the sallow complexion, the urinary disorder, and begin treatment at once with @ Hood's Sarsaparilla which contains the best and safest curative substances. f In usual liquid -oxm cr in chocolated tablets knoTm I<v><!nses $i.
