One of the most encouraging features
of a cure made by S.S.S.(Swift's Specific)
is its permanency. Of all diseases, it is
well known that those of the blood are
the most obstinate, and therefore the
most difficult to cure. The medical
profession, in fact, have virtually ad
mitted that a real, deepseated blood
disease is beyond their skill.
Of course, their admission is not made
in so many words, but actions speak
louder than words, and their inability to
cure, after months and often years of
treatment, is sufficient evidence that dis
eases of the blood cannot be cured by
doctors. Their mercurial mixtures, al
though taken faithfully, only cover Tip
the symptoms of the disease, inducing
the patient to feel that he is being cared;
but when he is sooner or later seized
with stiff joints, pain in the bones, etc,
the evidence of the doctor's patchwork
is conclusive. Such results cannot be ex
pected from the use of S. S. S. Being
purely vegetable, containing no harm
ful mineral ingredients, it is the only
blood remedy which acts on the true
principle of forcing the disease from
the system, building up rather than
tearing down the health. No loss of
hair, no stiff joints, no decrepit mercu
rial wrecks result from the use of S.S.S.
H. L. MYiiKS.
Mr. II. L. Myers, of 100 Mulberry street,
Newark, N. J., made the mistake of re
lying upon remedies based upon mineral
ingredients, and for the hundreds of
dollars which he invested received only
disappointment in return. He says :
'I was afflicted with a terrible blood
disease, which was in spots at first, but
afterwards 'spread all over my body.
These soon broke out into sores, and it
is easy to imagine the suffering I en
dured. " Before I became convinced that
the doctors could do no good I had
spent a hundred dollars, which was
really thrown away. I then tried vari
ous patent medicines, but they did not
reach the disease. When I had finished
my first bottle of S.S.S. , I was greatly
improved and was delighted with the
result. The large re 1 splotches on my
chest began to grow paler and smaller,
and before long disappeared entirely. I
regained my lost weight, became strong
er, and my appetite greatly improved.
I was soon entirely well, and my skin as
clear as a piece of glass."
S.S.S. is a sure cure for all manner
of blood diseases, and disappointment
never results from its use. It is

By the Loss of One Type.
A single type dropped from one of the
forms of the Pittsburg Leader the other
day, and its loss cost the paper $405. It
appears that a Pittsburg concern had
advertised in that edition of The Leader
a special sale of ladies wrappers at 98
cents each. In handling the form the
figure 0 dropped out. The loss was not
noticed until next morning, when the
store was besieged by ladies wanting to
buy wrappers at 8 cents, as advertised.
The firm stood by its guns until the last
wrapper was sold. Then it sent a bill
for $405 to The Leader, this being the
nun representing the difference between
8 cents and 98 cents on each wrapper
sold. The Leader paid the bill without

Correct Proportions and Bow to Maintain
In a lecture at the Academy of Na
tional Sciences in Philadelphia Professor
A. B. Brubaker, discussing the subject
of "Physical Development" said:
"Professor Gottfried Schadow of the
Royal Academy of Arts in Berlin has
given to the world, in his figure of an
artistically formed woman, the follow
ing measurements: Height 63 inches;
breadth of neck, 3 inches; shoulders,
15 inches; waist, 9 inches; hips, 18
"Long before Professor Schadow's
time an unknown artist created the
Venus de Medici, the world's ideal
of perfection in the female figure,
on these measurements: Height 63
inches; breadth of neck, 4 inches; shoul
ders, 16 inches; waist, 9 inches; hips,
"Professor Sargent, with several
thousand tabulated life measurements
in hand, produced composite figures of
the young American girl with these
measurements: Height, 63 J inches;
breadth of neck, 3.8 inches; girth of
neck, 12.1 inches; breadth of shoulders,
14.7 inches; breadth of waist, 8.6 inches;
girth of waist 24. 6 inches; breadth of
hips, 13.1 inches; girth of hips, 35.4
inches; girth of calf, 13.3 inches; girth
of upper arm, 10.1 inches; girth of
thigh, 21.4 inches, and forearm, 9.2
"Miss Anna Wood has given measure
ments closely similar to those of Pro
fessor Sargeant in her composite figure
of the Wellesley college girl, being aver
aged from the measurements of over
2, 000 young women.
"Given the height proportion and
weight of an average physique for the
man and woman, what should be the
attitude or posture of such an individ
ual, especially when standing? By pos
ture is meant a position of equilibrium
of the body which can be maintained for
some time, such as standing, sitting or
"For the maintenance of the erect
posture the following conditions must
be realized: ( 1 ) The corresponding halves
of the body must be in the same anatom
ical relation; (2) the center of gravity of
the whole body must fall just in front
of the last lumbar vertabra. That the
first of these two conditions may be
realized,, there must be a well developed
and symmetrical skeleton and a corre
sponding symmetrical development of
the muscles on the two sides of the body.
That the second condition may be real
ized, there must be such a development
of the extensor muscles on the back of
the body as will be sufficient to antag
onize the flexor muscles on the front of
"These conditions are not always
realized, and hence certain physical de
fects are observable, such as obliquity of
the head, elevation or depression of the
Bhonlder, curvature of the spine, and so
"Among the defects which interfere
with proper stature and proportions may
be mentioned knockknees, bowlegs and
"Knockknees occur in childhood or
at puberty and are generally associated
with rickets and due to a want of mus
cular or bony strength. Owing to the
width of the pelvis, the thigh bones are
inclined inward. This determines the
direction of the Reformity. There is a
disproportion between the weight of the
body and the strength of the muscles.
In consequence the inner condyle of the
thigh bone grows down and inward and
throws the lower leg outward.
"Bowlegs are also associated with
rickets and want of strength in muscles
and bones. In this condition the natural
curve of the bones is exaggerated, and
the leg bends outward.
"Pigeon toes are a term applied to
the inward direction of the foot, depend
ent on insufficient development of the
muscles which should turn the foot out
ward. This is a condition observed in
monkeys and very young children.
"In addition to the above mentioned
deformities relating to the trunk and
limbs there are others found in both
men and women, especially in the lat
ter, however, which relate to changes in
the shape of the thorax, caused by un
due compression or constriction.
"It is difficult to understand why this
constriction should have been indulged
in through the ages. Theru is an idea,
however, that it confers on the individ

of the decadent period suggested the

Kecent Triumphs In Surgery.
Cleansing of the wound itself was al
most a surgical heresy a few years ago.
Fouled bandages were the rule, and the
thicker and more abundant the dis
charges the more "laudable" they were
considered to be. Hence in the older
works on surgery the so called "laud
able" pus was as much a sign of safety
as it is now of danger. Cleanliness of
instruments, now a prime consideration,
Was then entirely ignored. Oftentimes
the same instruments would be used at
different times upon the dead as wall as
the living body, and a celebrated oper
ator of that day was accustomed to hold
his knife between his teeth when his
hands were temporarily employed in the
wound. If a cut healed rapidly, it was
a rarity sufficiently great to court com
ment Now, the exact opposite " is the
fact. The former result was rather an
accident of cleanliness than the deliber

have been the rule. Consequently the

Charley Richardson's answer Richard
son, the printer, who was a private, made
a prisoner by Mosby, but lived to get out
and become a Dakota editor, a colonel and
a member of the legislature. Then he told
this story :
"I was made a prisoner soon after the
Kelly -Ford fight, while a member of this
train guard, on our way with rations to
Culpeper. Upon reaching a bit of forest
near Brandy Station, Mosby 's men swooped
down upon us. The first thing I knew
Mosby was within a few feet of me, calling
for a surrender and allowing me to look
into a six Shooter. The guerrilla chief
caught sight of my fine new pair of high
topboots, for which the sutler had received
$12 the day before.
" 'Geout of thope boots., young fellow!"
Was his second order.
" 'Can't I keep thenar
" 'Back talk means a hole through you
In a second. Get out of those boots!'
"That was enough. The boots came off.
" 'Throw it up here, was his gruff order
when one was off. I can see just how the
rough rider looked as he swung his right
foot over to the left, took off his well worn
shoes and threw ther.i at my feet with an
order to 'put them on, and blank quick,
too, for we have n time to fool away. '
And they bndn't, for our cavalry had
heard the skirmish and were rapidly rid
ing to our relief. But they didn't catch
up with us. So, in time it took a week
-we reached Libby prison.
"My particular chum in prlpon was a
beardless young "Virginian, Billy Gates,
Whose family, he said, was loyal to the old
government and hadn't objected to his en
tering the Union army. He had been cap
tured at about the time Mosby plucked
our squad. My chum was very nervoi.s
and hated prison life worse than I did, if
possible. He mingled but little with jhe
other prisoners. We shared our rations,
slept under the same blanket and ber ame

"In January, 1864, the Richmond Whig

Light Bodices For the Theater.
The time Is past when certain colors

so that its 111 effects are nautral zed. The
White accessories now so much worn are a
great assistance in this matter, as they
may be so arranged that the color cf the
gown is not seen next the face.
Voluminous coiffures are best suited to
a small face, while a large countenance
demands that the size of the head shall
not be increased by either expansive hair
dressing or large headgear. The hair is in
all cases waved, however.
It is now fashionable to dress for the
theater in very light bodices, much deco
rated, and tiny bonnets of flowers or rib
bon, or no bat at all is worn. It would
be a good idea if every theater would have
a convenient dressing room in which hats
might be checked and kept safely. As it
is now, many ladies attending matinees
are obliged to hold their hats in their laps
during the entire performance and then
put them on without the aid of a mirror.

Miss Anthony Answers Her Critics.
An interview lately appeared in the
St Louis Republic with a Mrs. Beck
with of Brooklyn, who accused the
leaders of the suffrage movement of
being in it from mercenary motives and
of making "a fat thing" out of it. Miss
Anthony and others were mentioned by
name. Miss Anthony wrote to The Re
public in reply. She referred to her long
connection with the movement and con
tinued: "During that time I have never had
$1 for my services, nor have I ever re
ceived any money from the national as
sociation for my suffrage work in the
last 50 years. I am usually paid for my
lectures by any society which sends for
me to come to a special place. In all of
the laborious state campaigns, including
the long, bard one in California last
year, I have given my services without
money and without price. The various
bequests that have been left to me to
use at my discretion have all been ap
propriated to the suffrage cause. Not a
dollar of them has found its way into
my pocket, and the slender income upon
which I live is derived from an annuity
purchased for me by my friends.

been paid for her services, and most of
these women have contributed many
years of hard work and a large amount

full day's valuable work without a cent
of salary or other financial remunera

We should not alone have the beauti

should be taught to use in personal

harmony of sweet sounds ought not

instruments. The wonderful human
voice should be free from h trshness
and discord, and the highest Ideal of
the aesthetic appear in this wonder
which we call speech. Ai.d thus
through a long list.
"If the aesthetic is given a more
decided place in our educational

We are amazed to read, in reference
to the management of the North
Carolina penitentiary, that "the
laxity ol the watch over'the convicts
is causing escapes." That great and
good man, John K. .Smith, the new
superintendent of the penitentiary, is
credited with having fed these petted
darlings on strawberries and cream
during the seaon, and is said to
refer with pride to their love for him.
We are surprised that under thse
