Auto Repairer Burned. Ed Loving
was fearfully burned Monday evening
at the garage of the Maxwell-Meteor
Auto conrbany on Third street, a few
doors west of Main street. Mr. Loving
was at work underneath an auto at
the time. He had an electric light
globe with a long cord attached, with
which he was working. Getting the
cord entangled in his feet, he struck
a short circuit and the . globe was
broken. The sparks occasioned there
by ignited some two gallons of gaso
line which Mr. Loving had drained
fromthe machine he was repairing
he rushed about the garage. Finally
he was covered with blankets by Pro
prietors William Ehlers and Percy
Duerr and the flames extinguished.
Mr! Loving's arms, legs and the back
of his neck were severely burned. 'He
wa3 removed to Sf. Luke's hospital,
where his wounds were dressed, after
which he was taken to his home on

or four weeks before he will be' able

a vry close one on the part of Mr.
Loving. ' -

f WORLD CQHQUERING
At Work on School. Yesterday Con
tractor Robert Ed started his men to
lay the brick walls for the ti'ume of
the manual training, sewing and do
mestic science departments of the Mo
line public schools. Mr. Ed says that
he will complete the work hi schedule
time, and Safe & Anderson will put
on the finishing touches, and from the
way they are going -at it, there seems
to be little doubt that the building will
be ready for occupancy Sept. 1.
Bad Fire Treatened. A gasoline
stove exploded in the meat department
of Charles R. Dixon on Fifth avenue
just east of Fifteenth street yesterday,
and for a while It looked as though it
would be a disastrous blaze. The fine
department, however, arrived prompt
ly and extinguished the blaze before
any serious damage had been done.
Mr. Dixon had lighted a burner on the
gasoline stove to heat some water, and
it is thought that a spark dropped into
a can of paint which was standing
close by, causing the explosion.

A LASTING CURE
There are certain mineral medicines which will remove the external
symptoms of Contagious Blood Poison, and shut the disease up in the
system for awhile, but when the treatment is left off the disease will surely
return. Then the loathsome sj-mptoms of ulcerated mouth and throat,
copper-colored spots, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc., are usually worse
because the disease has made rapid progress on the internal members, and
weakened the constitution and general health of the sufferer. S. S. S. is
the only remedy that can be used with perfect safety inj the treatment of
Contagious Blood Poison, and with the. assurance that a lasting cure will
result. This medicine, made entirely of. roots and herbs of recognized
curative and tonic value, antidotes and destroys the powerful virus of the
disease, and by purifying the blood of every particle of the poison and
enriching and strengthening the circulation, removes every sj-pmptorn of
the trouble. S. S. S. does not hide or cover up the disease in any way, hut
drives it entirely out from the blood, leaving not the slightest trace for
future outbreaks. Home treatment book with valuable information and
any medical advice desired sent free to all who write.
