o FOR BLOOD P0IS011
S. S. S. is the one and only reliable and certain core for Contagious
Blood Poison. This claim is not based on the treatment of a few cases of
the disease, here and there, but its success extends over a period of more
than forty years, during vrhich time thousands upon thousands have found a
cure by the use of this great vegetable remedy, a a S. is first of all, an abso
lutely perfect blood purifier, able to go down into the blood and remove every
particle of the virus of Contagious Blood Poison. It cleanses and purifies the
circulation, and in this way removes the cause of the trouble. Then nature,
assisted by a rich, healthy blood supply, quickly renovates and renews the
ystem, while the symptoms of ulcerated mouth and throat, skin eruptions,
discolored splotches, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc, disappear, leaving
the body entirely free from the effects of this insidious poison. When S. S. S.
has thoroughly cleansed and purified the circulation there is no danger of
any future outbreak the blood is pure and the cause of the disease entirely
removed. Home Treatment Book containing many valuable and helpful
su jrgestions for those who are curing themselves with S. S. S., and any medical
advice desired sent free to all who write.

OPENING THIS WEEK
Newman's annual spring display of
styles for the spring and coming sum
mer opened today at the finely ap
pointed atore on West Second street,
Davenport, where handsome mahogany
and green and white furnishings set
off to advantage a magnificent line of
The millinery opening has some
unusually attractive hats. These are
shown in great variety of styles, In
beautiful combinations of colors and
exquisite lines and In the shapes of
most artistic designing. The Nacre
effects of changeable colors that are
so popular and designs In a variety of
materials are well displayed In the im
ported; models as well as In those of
eastern manufacture. The store shows
some especially elegant hats for even
ing .and reception wear, beautifully
trimmed with plumes, algrets and flow
ers, also the moderate hat for all
around purposes, with trimmings of
wing, flowers or Nacre ribbon effects.
The fine displays of street tailored
hats In the very newest models of
sailor, derby and turban, with cockade
trimmings of plaited ribbon or feayi
era, are attracting many purchasers.
The Newman company is especially
proud of its work room, under the
management of Miss Josie Dunlvan,
designer, from New York, under the
direction of Mrs. L. Price, head of the
The store makes and designs fiats
especially to suit the- purchaser, and
great care Is shown In meeting the de
sire of customers and in designing to
suit the individual.
The Newman store has considered
not only style, but quality, in purchas
ing its assortment of suits and coats
for its many patrons. The line shows
the cutaway in the prevailing 24 to 26
inch length of coat, some having the
wide Gibson .plait trimming the back,
which is one of the newest features of
the spring styles. Trimmings of braid
and buttons begin to ehow on some of
the best styles, and relieve the severity
of the model of a year ago. The whip
cords, men's weaves, serges and worst
eds are the favorites and dominate the
season's offerings to a great extent.
Skirts are a trifle wider than last
season and some show the tunic effect
cleverly suggested by cross plaits.
As to colors, white is excellent taste,
and tans and navy blue dominate the
darker suits, while the popular grey of
a year ago is taking third place.
Coats run about the same in trim
mings and colors as the suits, the prev
alent length being 54 inches. They
are trimmed slightly more than last
season, the silk braids and buttons be
ing used. The lighter colors In the
fancy weaves rule the fashion in ma
terial, while many handsome garments
have contrasting materials as trim
ming or finishing.
The early showirrg or gowns is ex
cellent at Newman's. Serges, plain or
trimmed, with Dutch or round collars,
and with linen or Irish laces, are
shown, while taffeta silk in changeable
and plain colors finds many admirers.
The lingerie dresses have some new
features in the apron front and other
trimmed effects that are carried out in
lace, or in the same material as the
gown, while lace insertions and linen
fringe are brought Into use extensively
in some of the most beautiful creations.
The opening at Newman's will con
tinue throughout the remainder of the
week, Friday and Saturday.
The handsome window display at
Newman's, of beautiful gowns and hats,
Is but a suggestion of the many attrac
tions within the store, which visitors
are cordially invited to inspect.

Plants Breaking Up an Island.
The layman would scarcely associate
great strength with so delicate aud fra
gile a thing as maidenhair fern, yet if
its roots have not sufficient room they
will break the pot In which the plant
grows. Blades of grass will force the
curbstones between which they spring
up out of their place, and in a single
night a crop of small mushrooms has
been known to lift a large stone. In
deed, plants are on record as having
brokeu the hardest rocks.
The island of Aldabra, to the north
west of Madagascar, is becoming small
er through the action of the mangroves
that grow along the foot of the cliffs.
They eat their way iuto the rock in all
directions, and into the gaps thus form
ed the waves force their way. In time
this will probably reduce the island to
pieces. London Telegraph.
