Obituary Record. Monday after
noon at the family home, 424 West
Eighth street, occurred the death of
Frank T. Peto, one of the well known
residents of this city. He had been
ailing for several years and had taken
.1 trip to Germany for his health, but
board of supervisors the experts speak! this did not benefit him. Mr. Peto was
very uncomplimentary of the methods
employed in doing business, and say
that while no "graft" was disclosed,
the v ry methods invited dishonesty,
a 1 1 I also gave means of concealing it.
"The fact that the data at our disposal
did not disclose any direct indications
of "staff does not by any means pre
clude the possibility of the perpetra
lion of the offense," says the repo't.
The report covered the period f ro n
Jan. 1, 190.1 to Jan. 1. 1H7. Its bulky
size is caused by the exhaustive fin -tiros
of each office. The main cri'i
cism is carelcssnes and laxuess whieU
is charged against the met hods in ah
offices, though some are hamk'd
stronger rebukes than others. The
sheriff's ollice is condemned for re
taining turnkey fees instead of placing
them in with the receipts of the office.
This has been the custom for years
here, the sheriff paying the turnkey.
Several days ago Sheriff Eckhardt pro
posed to the supervisors that the
change be made whereby the boa.d
pay the turnkey and the sheriff turn
all turnkey fees to the county.
Attend all Insane Hearings. The
board of supervisors has empower'"'.
Chairman J. G. Dutcher to attend aii
hearings held by the Scott county
commisioners of insanity hereafter,
and the clerk of the board is notified
to keep Chairman Dutcher poste i
when hearings are to be he'd. The
chairman will look after the intores.s
of the county.

THE GREAT .
...... - ...gi
For more than fort' 3?ears S. S. S. lias worn the crown of
public approval and has been recognized as the King of Blood
Purifiers. It has demonstrated its ability to CURB in
thousands upon thousands of cases of blood and skin diseases
until it is regarded today as the most reliable and safest of all
Pure blood means strong, vigorous bodies, well nourished
srstems, steady nerves, and all the machinery of life working in
harmony with nature thus insuring perfect health. Impure or diseased blood means the
opposite of all this; any impuritjr, humor or poison in this vital fluid acts injuriously on
the system and affects the general health. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashes and the
various skin affections show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased condition, as the
result of too much acid or the presence of some irritating humor. Chronic Sores and
Ulcers are the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the blood, while Rheumatism, Catarrh,
Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc., are all deep-seated blood disorders that continue to
grow worse as long as the poisons which produce them remain in the blood.
9 All blood troubles are not acquired.
Through the blood disease germs are traus-
mutea irom one generation to anotner. par
ents hand down a tainted circulation to their
children, and we see its effects manifested in
various ways. The skin has a waxy, pallid
appearance, the e3es are often weak, glands
of the neck enlarged, and, as the taint has
been in the blood since birth, the entire health
is usually affected, and the system weakened
from want of nourishing, health-givmg blood.
In all blood trouoles S. S. S. has proven itself "Tho King of Btoozt Purifiers,"
t goes down into the circulation and removes all poisons, humors, waste or foreign matter.
and makes this life-stream pure and health-sustaining. Nothing reaches inherited blood
troubles like S. S. S.; it removes every particle or the taint, purines and strengthens the
weak, deteriorated blood, supplies it with the healthful properties it needs and establishes
the foundation ior good health. As a tonic
S. S. S. has no equal, and it will be found es
pecially bracing to weak, anaemic persons.
One of the greatest points in favor of S. S. S.
is that it is purely vegetable, made from nature's
healing, cleansing, health-producing roots, herbs
and barks. It is the one medicine that may be
taken with absolute safety by the youngest
child or the oldest member of the family.
Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Skin
Diseases, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, and all other blood troubles are cured perma-nentlj-
by S. S. S., and so thorough is the cleansing of the blood that no trace of the disease
is left to break out m future years, or to be transmitted to oh spring. It 3"our blood is out
of order begin the use of S. S. S., The King of Blood runners, and restore this vital fluid
to its normal healthy condition, and enjoy the blessing ot good health, licok on the blood

plvon to both young and old, and always with the best
results. It thoroughly cleanses the blood of all Impur
ities, at th same time it builds up the general health,
fjives appetite, strength and energy. We have given
it to our children, as intimated, and found it to be non
injurious to the rystem and always capable of purify
ing the blood and restoring health. I unhesitatingly
recommend it to all in need of a blood medicine. It is
superior to everything t-lso as a cure lor blood diseases
