A Careful Patient.
A woman whose throat had 'troubled her for a long time, says a writer In the Thlladelphla Tubllc Ledger,' grew Impatient at the slow progress she was making, and made complaint to her doctor, who said: "Madam, I can never cure you of this throat trouble unless you stop talking, and give your throat a com plete rest." "But, doctor," objected his patient, "I'm very careful what I say. I nev er use harsh language or anything of that kind." How's This?

Charcoal making for .gunpowder la a much more complicated process than the ordinary field kiln manufacture. Only certain kinds of woods are used usually the young shoots of elder and willow and it is cut in the spring, so thnt the bark may be stripped off. It Is then piled under airy, open sheds and allowed to remain several years until It is thoroughly dry. When the powder maker Is ready for a new sup ply of charcoal the wood Is cut Into lengths of three feet and placed in tight iron retorts, under and around which a fire roars continually. The dampers and pipes are so arranged that the workmen have complete con trol of the heat. At the end of the retort a hole is left for the escape of the inflammable gases resulting from the charring process. A pipe catches them as they leave the retort ai)d con veys them Into the furnace, where they take the place of a good deal of fuel. When the flames of the gas be come a deep blue color the workmen know that the wood Is sufficiently charred and the retort Is cooled down as quickly as possible. The charcoal Is then left for a week or more be fore grinding, because if placed In the mnchlne at once there is danger of spontaneous combustion. The best charcoal Is jet black and fractures show velvety surfaces. "Ma," said Tommy, as he puzzled over the paper, "what does the 'black hand' mean?" "I don't know, my son," replied his mother, "but I know -what two black hands mean." "What?" "That your father has been trying to clean out the furnace." SORE THAT DO NOT HEAL I have had a crippled foot all my lite, which compelled me to use a brace. By some unaccountable means this brace causod a bad Ulcer on my lep, about six years npo. I had good medical atten tion, but the Ulcer got worse. I was in duced to try S. S. S., and am glad to say it cured me entirely, and I am convinced that it saved my leg for me. I have, therefore, great faith in S. S. S. and glaaly recommend it. to all needing reliable blood, medicine. Bristol, Va.-Tenn. W. J. CATE. O verahoottnjr the Mark.

Boston Transcript. j Whenever a sore or ulcer does not heal, no matter on what part of the body it may be, it is because of a poisoned condition of the blood.. This poison may be the remains of some constitutional trouble ; the effect of a long spell of sickness, which has left this vital stream polluted and weak, or because the natural refuse matter of the body, which should pass off through the channels of nature, has been left in the system and absorbed into the circulation. It does not matter how the poison "became intrenched in the blood, the fact that the sore is there and does not heal is evidence oi a deep, underlying cause. There is nothing that causes more discomfort, worry and anxiety than a festering, discharging old sore that resists treat ment. The very sight of it is abhorrent and suggests pollution and disease j besides the time and attention required to keep it' clean and free from other infection. As it lingers, slowly eating deeper in to the surrounding flesh, the sufferer grows morbidly anxious, fearing if. 'may be .'cancerous.'" Some oi those alliicted with an old sore or ulcer know how useless it is to ex pect a cure from salves, powders, lo tions and other external treatment. Through the use of these they have Been the place begin to heal and scab over, and were congratulating them selves that they would soon be rid of the detestable thing, when a fresh supply of poison from the blood would cause the inflammation and old discharge to return and the sore would be as bad or worse than before. Sores that do not heal are not due to out side causes ; if they were, external treatment would cure them. They are kept open because the blood is steeped in poison, which finds an outlet through these places. While young people, and even children, sometimes suffer with non-healing sores, those most usually afflicted are persons past middle life. Often, with them, a wart or mole on the face inflames and be gins to ulcerate from a little rough handling ; or a deep, offensive ulcer de velops from a slight cut or bruise. Their vital energies and powers of re sistance have grown less, and circulation weaker, and perhaps some taint in the blood, which was held In check by their stronger constitutions of early life, shows itself. It is well to be sus picious of any sore that does not 'heal readily, because the same germ that produces Cancer is back of every old sore and only needs to be left in the circulation to produce this fatal disease. There is only one way to cure these old sores and ulcers, and that is to fret everv particle of the poison out of the blood. For this purpose nothing equals S. S. S. It goes down to the very bottom of the trouble, cleanses the blood and makes a permanent cure. S. S. S. enriches and freshens the circulation so that it carries new, strong blood to the diseased parts and allows the place to heal naturally. When this is done the discharge ceases, the sore scabs over and fills in with healthy flesh, and the skin regains its natural color.
