Malaria is a very insidious disease ; it gives no warning of its coming until the circulation is filled with the poison and tins foe .to health has the system at its mercy. The blood becomes polluted, tlun and weak and its slow, irregular circulation fails to properly nourish and strengthen the body. Then the entire system is attacked, and if the gcrins and poisons of Malaria arc allowed to remain the strongest constitution will break down. No one can feel well when the system is in n malarial condition; the vitality is weak, the appetite poor, digestion deranged, the complexion grows sallow and the entire body feels the eflects of the poison. Malaria must be removed from the system through the circulation and the only medicine that can accomplish this is S. S. S. It not only cleanses the blood of all unhealthy, morbid matter, but destroys the germs, cures Malaria and restores this vital fluid to a strong, healthy condition. S. S. S.

In Germany the man must he 1« years of age, hut the age of the bride elect is left to popular discretion. In Franco the man must lie 18 and the woman 15, while in Belgium the same standard prevails. In 8|atin the intending husband must have passed his fourteenth year and the woman her twelfth. These figures, in connection with the admit UkI poverty of 8i>ain. socially consid ered, are full of the deepest meaning. In Hungary, for Roman Catholics, the man must, lie 14 yours old and tho woman 12; for Protestants the man must he 18 and tho woman 15. the man must have seen at least 14 summers anrl tho woman 12. In Portugal a hoy of 14 is considered marriageable and a woman of 12.

In Switzerland the men from the age of 14 and the women from the age of 12 are allowed to marry. In Turkey any youth and maiden who can walk properly and can under stand the necessary religious service are allowed to be united for life. To go further afield, mere children and oven eight years of ago. are, by Indian custom, often married. This applies to the girl only, although native boys of from 12 to 14 husbands and the nominal of ton, nine, become heads of households. In China, too, the custom is nearly senseless.
