THE AHeiTS, PJtlDAY, OCTOBER 23. 1903.
Those who have ever felt its keen , cutting pains, or witnessed the intense
suffering of others, know that Rheumatism is torture, and that it is right
ly called "The King of Pain."
All do notsuff eralike. Some are suddenly seized with the most excrucia
ting pains, and it seems every muscle and joint in the body was being torn
asunder. Others feel only occasional slight pains for weeks or months, when
a suddea change in the weather or exposure to damp, chilly winds or night
air brings on a fierce attack, lasting for days perhaps, and leaving the pa
tient with a weakened constitution or crippled and deformed for all time.
An acid, polluted condition of the blood is the cause of every form and
variety of Rheumatism, Muscular, Articular, Acute, Chronic, Inflammatory
and Sciatic, and the blood must be purged and purified before there is an
end to your aches and pains. External applications, the use of liniments and
plasters, do much toward temporary relief, but such treatment does not reach
tha.re.al cause or cleanse the diseased blood ; but S. S. S., the greatest of all
blood puri fiers and tonics, does cure Rheuiiwtism. by antidoting and neutraliz
ing the poisonous acids and building up the weak and sluggish blood. It is

The life of a big league star, says
Xapolieon Lajoie. the crack second
baseman of the Cleveland team and
one of the most talked of players in
the history of baseball, "is not all
that it is cracked up to be. It's a
pleasant thing to le a headliner and
have your name printed in black face
type and have nice things said about
you and your efforts, but the thing
has its drawbacks, too. Hut the
greatest ball player that ever lived
is but a human Wing. He isn't a ma
chine at all. and- he is just as likely
to err as any other human. Every
player is .liable to have his off day
and it is at such times that the star
is ready to surrender his hard earned
laurels and develop a longing for
home and mother. The baseball star
doesn't dare make a. single break in
a frame. He is expected to
c5o the wonderful every time he
makes a move. He is supposed to
make sensational plays all the time,
and when he does accomplish ' some
thing out of the ordinary, instead f
receiving the encouragement that a
lesser light would get, you hear the
fans say, 'Oh, that's nothing; it's easy
for him.' The average spectator of a
baseball game expects the so-called
star to make at least a two-bagger
every time he steps up to the plate.
If he only makes a single you hear
something like this, 'Oh, not so much.
Don't see anything remarkable about
that fellow.' Xine-tenths. of a crowd
is rooting for you to strike out, and
if you do the hoVvlsi of derision' are
enough to drive you to the place
where they keep funny people. Xo;
the life of a star player is not all that
it is cracked up to be, especially dur
ing the playing seas-on." Xew York
