To Remove Cinders from Eye.
A simple remedy for removing cin
ders from the eye Is to dip a small

in water and pass it over the ball of
the eyes. This operation requires lit

Pastor of Cairo Baptist Church Says
Giving Franchise to Negro Was
Great Mistake.
At the Tairn Haptist church last

about the late rity Hection. de
nouncing in srathing terms the meth
ods employed in some of th.' ward.-i
to carry the election acalnst Prohibi
tion. The buying and selling of vot. a
he sal. I was disgraceful to h th buyer
and seller. He exprese, the belief
that not over a hundred negroes aim
voted did so honestly t'le rest a'l
being borght. and he naid the great
est blunder the federal government
made was to grant the negro the
franchise. He said conditions were
such that no gentleman would want
to be a candidate for mayor, as he
would have to do what no genfeman
would "nt to do.

According to tho Germans tho
bride! must be especially careful on
her wedding day not to put the left
foot out of bed first for that would
mean perpetual strife.
It Is most necessary to see that
thirteen persons do not sit down to
breakfast together that day. Many
ml; fortunes will befall that bride
who tries tho wedding ring on tho
proper finger before the wedding;
this is considered an anticipation of
I fate and fate Is not to be to caught.
lit is even possible that In such cases
I the -wedding may fall at the last ruo
i ment. In fact some brides think It
a bad sign If tho bridegroom even
( show them tho ring before the wed
! ding.
When the bride puts on the wed
, ding dress she must be very careful
not to rip or tear it not evcti a bit
I of lace, nor should she pick-up any
, thing on it for this, too, la a bad
! sign. If, however, anything be torn
, It should not bo sewn for each
etitch brings tears and misfortunes.
In English society bits of court plas
ter are used for such emergencies;
The bride should admire her dress
before the wedding day, for If It U
completed and she look In tho mir
ror on her wedding day each glance
means misfortune.
It Is an awful sign for tho bride
to look back over her shoulder, for
this is a sign that she looks back to
the past with a heavy heart, and does
not look to the future with Joy. If
she should see herself .n the mirror
when thus looking back, all luck Is
gone from this wedding.
This refers of course, to an acci
dental look backward. If the bride
ia In her carriago and any one calls
to her, she must on no condition look
backward. Before her wedding no
bride who hopes for good luck
6hou!d weep crying la permitted
only after the ceremony. A mother
who embraces her daughter and,
weeping, makes her weep, calls
down misfortune upon her child.

bride should so time them that they

misfortune comes with premature
congratulations. Hundreds of tele

Under no circumstances should
the bridal bouquet be forgotten, for

superstition goes. It ' extends even
to tho wedding presents. Some
think it ill luck to receive any pres

t The preservation of health and prevention against disease is almost
entirely dependent utron pure, healthy blood ; every org-an, tissue, nerve and
sinew of the body draws on this vital fluid for nourishment and strength.
Poisons, humors and germs from various sources often get into the blood,
and then this great life-stream becomes a source of infection and disease,
instead of a nourishing, health-sustaining fluid. Heredity is likewise an
important factor, regulating the quality of the blood. Some persons are born
with tainted blood from diseased ancestry, and Scrofula in one of its numerous
forms is 6ure to crop out some time in life. Not only poisons in the blood
are responsible for disease, but when the circulation is run down and becomes
poor and weak in quality, then we see the effect in a general bad condition
of health, such as weakness, sallow complexions, boils, and various skin
eruptions. . All blood troubles require a tonic and blood purifier, and none
other equals S. S. S. It goes down to the
very foundation of the trouble, and removes
v every particle of the poison or impurity from
the blood. And not only does S. S. S.
antidote the poisons, humors and germs, but
it possesses health-giving, tonic properties,
which build up and strengthen weak, impov
erished blood, and fortifies the system against
disease 7 S. S. S. permanently cures Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcera,
Scrofula, Kczema, Tetter, and all other skin diseases and disorders. Book
