contains sarsaparilla, but because it 'combines the utmost remedial values
of more than 20 different ingredients, each greatly strengthened and en
riched by this peculiar combination. These ingredients are the very rem
edies that successful physicians prescribe for the same diseases and ail-
tients. There is no real substitute for Hood's Sarsaparilla. If urged to
uy any preparation said to be "just as good," you may be sure it is in
ferior, costs less to make, and yields the dealer a larger profit.

VALUE OF SEPTIC TANKS.
Many Odors and Germs May Be Die
pensed With by Their Use.
Ex-President Roosevelt's farmers'
commission, appointed for the nuroose
of investigating and reporting upon the
conditions oi tne great farming indus
try of out country, found that one of
the greatest disadvantages the farming
community has to contend with, owing
io tne absence or proper sewerage, was
the unsanitary conditions surrounding
Now this same condition prevails not
only upon the farm but also in small
towns and suburbs of cities where there
are no sewers or water works, and
where the people have to depend upon
wells for their water supply.
Usually these homes have a well at
the rear of the house, near the kitchen
door. A few feet further will nrobab-
ly be an old style toilet, standing over
an un walled vault dug a few feet into
the ground. The greasy waters and
slops from the kitchen are either con
veyed by a pipe from the sink to a hole
in the ground, or empited into the back
yard to putrify and from which the
swarms of flies, attracted by the ob
noxious oders from this decaying mass
on the ground and in the toilet, carry
disease and death into the house, as
Dees carry pollen from flower to flower.
In the winter seasons we do not have
the germ carrying flies to pollute our
food, but we have an agent equally as
uad in the rains, which saturate the
earth and carry the seepage from these
polluted places down through the
ground, uniting with and constantly
contaminating tbe well water with ty
phoid and other germs.
All of these dangers can be overcome
at a comparatively small expense by
the installation of a properly designed
and constructed ' septic tank, with a
glazed vetrified sewerage system con
necting the house and toilet with the
same. The tank being practically
buried in the ground and hermatically
sealed, with the inlet and outlet pipes
beneath the water, there can be no
oders escape from it Even the water
from the outlet, or overflow, of the
tank is clear, odorless and germless,
all of which are owing-to the fact that
the specific gravity of all vegetable
and animal matter entering the tank
with its germs, odors, etc., cause it to
float to the surface of the water, which
is always maintained at a considerable
distance above the overflow. Here it
floats undisturbed while in it certain
microbes develop which devour and de
stroy it A system of this kind can be
put in without investing in high priced
plumbing goods or the services of a
plumber, aa it is constructed principal
ly of concrete and sewer piping. Any
handy man should be able to install it
If a septic tank system was properly
installed at such places as described in
this article, those homes would be as
sanitary as a home in the city.

Small Opening Made in Niagara With
Youngstown, N. Y.. Anril 23. A
breach was made today in the great
ice jam which for ten days has held
the lower Niagara in its grip and
caused damage estimated at $1,000,-
Engineer Kunz and his men ham
mered away and at 5 o'clock the blast
from 150 pounds of dynamite sent a
tiny rivulet trickling through the east
side of the jam. At dusk further ex
plosions and the ceaseless grinding of
the floating ice bad broadened the
trickle to a bold young stream.
Engineer Kunz expects that the
channel will be widened during the
night, and that by morning there will
be a broad avenue.
Tbe dynamiting attracted less than
500 spectators. Some chunks of ice
buried themselves a foot in the earth.
One crashed through the roof of the
The main mass of the ice from the
mouth of the river, 10 miles north, is
apparently as solid as masonry. About
100 feet from the shore a narrow chan
nel is swiftly running. About 80 feet
north of the head of this channel is a
good acre of green water streaked with
chunks of ice.
The jam is of appalling proportions.
It is 12 miles in . length and in many
places 60 feet in depth, and represents
millions of tons and a strength power
enough to annihilate the four villages
along its border, if it should start to
go out all at once. Another element
of horror is its pestilential nature.
Mingled with the slushy ice cast high
on the banks is a week's sewage from
the cities along the Niagara frontier.

ICE JAM YIELDS.
Surrenders All Power to Parliament
and Awaits Decision.
Constantinople, April 23. The
Young Turks have won another vie
tory over Sultan Abdul Hamid, . but
whether the sultan will remain as sov
ereign is yet to be decided, although
he has offered to place the affairs of
government entirely in the hands of
ministers responsible to parliament
The sultan also agrees to replace the
Constantinople garrision with troops
that have been investing the city for
four days. .
The chamber of deputies and some of
the senators met today at San Stefano
and are now discussing the question of
deposing the sultan.
The concentration of the investing
army is complete and doubtless the
next 24 hours will decide the fate of
the sultan, who remains passively at
his palace, awaiting the issue.
For the present there need be little
fear of bloodshed within the city, but
there is much to be feared from the
riots and massacres that now are
sweeping over the districts under Turk
MASSACRES SPREAD NORTH.
New Regions Affected by Fanatical
Wave of Slaying.
Constantinople, April 23. The
spread of the wave of massacre and
death to Erzerum, the principal, town
of Turkish Armenia, in a district far
removed to the north from that hither
to affected by the wave of fanaticism,
is leading to the conclusion here that
the outrages are being inspired by the
sultan, more or less directly, as a coun
ter move in politics to the constitu
tional movement of the Young TurkB,
Weight is given this conclusion by
the change in feeling on the part of
the Armenians, who are now ceasing
their enthusiastic hailing of the con
stitutional government, and appealing
again for the laws of the Sheri and the
sultan. That the Young Turks have
been very friendly with the Christians
is a matter of record ; and the fact
that the fanatical Moslems have been
roused to attack Christians is regarded
as an indirect way of bringing pressure
upon the Young Turks by many in
well-informed political circles. Horri
ble as this idea is, it is fast gaining
ground, and the behavior of the Ar
menians . themselves in abandoning
their appeals to the Young Turks and
placing reliance on the sultan is fur
ther proof of it

officials. Under the new system the
mayor will not only receive, but acta
ally invites complaints, criticisms, new
ideas and suggestions of all kinds
which may result in the betterment of
conditions in any direction.
