man. Catarrh with its insidious ap
proach and tenacious grasp, was his
only unconquered foe. For thirty years
he waged unsuccessful warfare against
this personal enemy. At last l'eruna
-came to the rescue lie writes:
"I have used several bottles of Pe
runa and I feel greatly benefited
thereby from my catarrh of the head.
I feel encouraged to believe that If I
use it a short time longer I will be
fully able to eradicate the the disease
of thirty years' standing." David

Dan Leno, the English comedian,
told of appearing before a swell Lon
don audience at the bouse of a lord.
'.Tbe languor of his listeners made hlra
feel not too happy, and he was glad to
retire to tbe dressing room allotted
him. While he was removing the
grease paint a very young peer, who
had strolled after him, stood watching
the process. He told Leno In the most
approved drawl that some of his say
ings had really been rather funny, "es
pecially that one. ,vou know, where

laugh awfully, because I know what

Che Tyranny of the Sniiill and the
Helplessness of Mankind.
The "tyranny of littleness" Is the
cruel despotism not of one muster, but
of a multitude of small ones. Witness
the Ironclad sway which any sovereign
ruler of the kitchen may wield over a
helpless household. What happiness or
misery Is bestowed lightly by one who
turns a toaster or brews a pot of cof
fee! Wo are all slaves to milliners and
tailors. The milkman holds us helpless
In his clutches. The chore man orders
us about. Tbe ma Id of all work beck
ons, and we follow. We bow and
scrape before the haughty plumber.
We who would strike down mon
archs and measure swords with min
isters of finance, what sorry figures
we cut In the community If slighted by
the laundrymon! We scarce can hold
dur own against a surly rallwny por
ter, and It Is but by the courtesy of
Master Boots that we emerge from
our hotel apartment. And who shall
stand before the overwhelming power
vested in an offended waiter? We
cannot even mount a trolley car If the
conductor and motorman choose to Ig

change cannot rest at night because an
Infant's voice banishes dreams. He Is
a victim to the Insect world. Who
will abolish the tyranny, of flies and of
Behold the tyranny of horses, dogs
and cats, to which the great majority
of mortals submit without a murmur.
What muster Is as exacting as a tight
shoe or a torturing collar? A parrot
or a pet canary can sadly try men's
souls! Yes, "things arc In tbe saddle
and ride mankind."
Who will do Justice to the tyranny
of the depraved Inanimate taskmasters?
A diamond necklace changes the his
tory of empires. A courtier's cloak
may pave the way to royal favor. A
glove, a handkerchief, a gloss slipper,
what things to conjure with! Slaves
of tbe lamp! Slaves of the ring!
Ah, the supremacy of trivial things,
that one reul tyranny to which we all
bow down! Is there no hope thnt we
may some day throw off the heavy
yoke? Well Is It for us to meditate
upon this vital problem which touches
each so closely. And ns we medltute I
we mny grow wise enough to break '

that hold us spiritless and helpless In

You must be very cautious how you
treat your neighbor In Isle of Jersey,
for he cun have you arrested on the
slightest pretext and if be has a
grudge against you can bring about
such n cularalty by simply giving a fic
tional account of your misconduct to
the nearest lawyer. The latter will de
mand a line, and should you decline to
pay It he will cause you to be thrown
Into prison to await trial. Then, even If
you are acquitted on the ground that
the charge Is unfounded, you have ab
solutely no claim against your persecu
tor, though you may have suffered a
couple of months' Imprisonment for

other town makes luce embroidery and
others drawn thread work, such as
centerpieces, try mates, teucloths and
dollies. The designs used In making
tbe luce are taken from tbe curious
webs of the sctuitroplcul spiders that
are so numerous there. On this ac
count it is called "naudutl," an Indian

When the cold wave flag is up, freezing weather is on the way. Winter
is here in earnest, and with it all the miserable symptoms of Catarrh
return blinding headaches and neuralgia, thick mucous discharges
from the nose and throat, a hacking cough and pain in the chest, bad
taste in the mouth, fetid breath, nausea and all that makes Catarrh the
most sickening and disgusting of all complaints. It causes a feeling of per
sonal defilement and mortification that keeps one nervous and anxious while
in the company of others.
In spite of all efforts to prevent it,
Che filthy secretions and mucous mat
ter find their way into the Stomach
and are distributed by the blood to
every nook and corner of the system;
the Stomach and Kidneys, in fact
every organ and part of the body, be
come infected with the catarrhal
poison . This disease is rarely, if ever,
even in its earliest stages, a purely local
disease or simple inflammation of the
nose and throat, and this is why sprays,
wasnes, powders and the various in
haling mixtures fail to cure. Heredity
is sometimes back of it parents have
it and so do their children.
In the treatment of Catarrh, anti
septic and soothing washes are good for cleansing purposes or clearing the
head and throat, but this is the extent of their usefulness. To cure Catarrh.!
permanently, the blood must be purified and the system relieved of its load!
of foul secretions, and the remedy to accomplish this is S. S. S. which has
membrane and is carried through the circulation to all the Catarrh infectedi
portions of the body, they soon heal, the mucous discharges cease and the
patient is relieved of the most offensive and humiliating of all complaints.
S. S. S. is a vegetable remedy and contains nothing that could injure the
most delicate constitution. It cures Catarrh in its most aggravated forms,
and cases apparently incurable and hopeless. Write us if you have Catarrh,
and our physicians will advise you without charge.
