niE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE:' MAY 16. lf00.
CUHESQ For six vaars X was severely troubled with a bad akin din, looated principally on the shin. The trouble would appear in tha form of mall yellow bllatera, characterised by very aayara itching, eto. I tried aarsaperillae, so-oalle4 blood puri fier, salves, ointment, lotion and treatment under a phyalcian, bnt nothing- did me any rood. Becoming dteooucag-ed I left off all thia treat meat, and jaat about thia time I aaw S.fJ.S. advertised. One day I deolded to rive thia medicine a trial, and after using- it for a short while I beran to improve. Of oouraa I con tinued 8. S. 8. and it enred ma com pletely. Quite a while haa elapsed since I waa cured and there haa never been the slightest indication, of tha retu.raf.of tha trouble. O. O. RECK. 404 Freedom St., Alliance Ohio. In this article we want to explain to you the cause of skin diseases, nd also offer suggestions, founded' on reason arid experience, which will enable you to cure yourself if .you are afflicted with; any of the various forms or this trouble. The skin receives its necessary nourishment from the blood. Every pore is kept open and every gland kept healthy by continually feeding on the nutritious properties which are distributed throughout the system by a pure, rich blood supply. As long as this normal condition exists the cuticle will be soft, smooth, and free from eruptions; when however the circulation is contaminated with humors and impurities its supply of nutritive properties is diminished, and it becomes a sharp, acrid fluid which diseases instead of preserves the natural health and texture of the skin. Lying just beneath the outer covering or tissue-skin" is a sen sitive membranous flesh which surrounds and protects the tiny veins, pores and glands. It is here the impurities of the blood are deposited, and the acrid matter causes irritation and inflammation , which splits or breaks the thin, tissue-lil:e cuticle, and the result is outwardly manifested in Ecze ma, Tetter, Salt Rheum, or some other disfiguring or annoying eruptive disease. It can readily be seen that - since Skin Diseases are the result of bad blood, there can be but one way to cure them purify the blood. Salves washes,' lotions, etc., are not able1 to do so, because they do not reach the blood. Such treatment is of no value except for its ability to temporarily relieve itching and ' assist in ' keeping the " skin clean. . , S. S. 5. cures Skin Diseases of every kind by neutralizing the acids and removing all humors from the -blood. V S.' S. S. cools , the acid-heated circulation, builds it up to its normal strength and thickness, multiplies its rich, nu tritious corpuscles, and ' adds to its purity in every way. Then the skin, instead of being irritated and inflamed by sour impurities, is nourished, soothed and softened by this cooling, healthy stream of blood S. S. S. is the greatest of all blood purifiers, and therein lies its ability to cure skin diseases. The trouble cannot remain when the cause has been removed, and S. S, S. will certainly remove the cause. It cures, Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, pimples, boils,, blackheads, etc and all eruptions of the skin. Book on Skin Diseases and any mcdica: . advice free. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO.. ATLANTA, GA. I had a bad ease of Xorema, it beinjr specially severe on my right hand, I was hardly able to use- mv hand in my work. I tried a great many things in an effort to ret relief, but waa unable to do ao until I read of S. S. 8. and determined to give it a trial. I nsed several bottlee of thia remedy and it cured the trouble en tirely. 8.8.B. put my blood in fine oonditlon and left my akin aoft and smooth. Though thia waa aome time ego there haa been no return of tha trouble. 0HA8. J. WOLF, JR. 60 8. Ssoond St., St. Louis, Mo. - For four years T suffered severely with Weeping Ecsema, located chiefly on the bands, both inside and out, and extended a far up aa tha wrists. I was under treatment moat all tha time, but could ret no relief. One or two of my phyeloiang said It was as bad a case of Ecsema aa they ever aaw. I lost my linger nails onoe or twice as a result of the disease, and the itchinr, burning and pain I experienced I cannot express to you in words. I kept my hands bandared all the while, but -with only little relief. As X said, becoming discour aged, I rave up all treatment I waa taking, and aeeinr 8. 8. 8. advertised beran it aa a laat resort.

Prom a grand average of 11.03 at the old three hall straight rail game to a grand average of 20 at the 18:2 balk line game is a far cry In billiards. That, however, Is what the amateurs have done since they have been playing tournaments for the championship. It represents a period of twenty-one years. Many amateurs with the cue have come and gone In that time, and of those In tha recent championship tournament at the German Llederkrans in this city not one waa In the public arena twenty or even twelve years ago. The professionals make a much better showing In the length of their public life. But billiards Is their business. Tha veterans of the last tournament were Conklin of Chicago and Dr. Mlal of this city. Conklin haa been playing steadily since 1900. Dr. Mial played . In a tourna ment that year with Conklin,- but he haa not kept It up year after year sines like Conklin. J"erdlnsnd Poggenburg, who did not play In the last tournament, la a vet eran campaigner of the cloth and Ivories, and hia first appearance -In a tournament antedatea that of either Conklin or Mial. Other leading amateurs, Edward Gardner, Wilson Foes. Martin Mullon, Arthur Town send and Byron Stark among them still play the game, but none except Gardner has been seen In public In some years. . Worklnai At It -Now. "Albert Cutler of Boston, who used to play In the amateur tourneys, haa become a professional, as has Frank Keeney, who, however, doesn't play professionally, but has a billiard room. Al Taylor haa turned professional too; likewise Calvin Demarest, the young Chicago n, who as an amateur waa the most skilful cueist ever in the amateur field. Hi.i records show that. Ho, however, hasn't made any more improve ment aa a player than Cutler, who, though not one of the best amateurs, has Improved to such an extent that he is one of the leading professionals, and the best profes sional billiards is considerably ahead of the best amateur playing. Step by atep the 'advance made in the aclence of gathering caroma by the ama teurs can be followed. As the game has been made more difficult, so they have risen to Its requirements. The first ama teur championship of America was played In New York In May, 1887, and waa at the three ball straight rail game. The winner was Orville Oddie, Jr., whose best run was 183, ' best single average, 15.79 and grand average, 11.03. The other playera were Alexander Morten, Dr. H. D. Jen nlngi, who Is still sn active player; J. E. Soule, C. T. Jonea and U B. Flannagan. The games were of 300 points. In a tour nament the next year under the same con ditions Oddle won again, beating C. Bain bridge. Dr. Jennings and Morten. His grand average that time was only 7.S. First at Balk Line. The "first known 14.2 tournament for amateurs'' took place in Sloeson's room in New York In 1893. Byron Stark was firtt. Dr. A. B. Miller second and Dr. A.. L. Ranney third. .There had, however, been a match at 14.2 previous to that in which Oddle won with an average of 4.40 for 400 polnta. The field had broadened nut by 1898. In which year Maurice Daly promoted a handicap 14.8 tournament. There were seven competitors Townsend, Stark, who won; E. Gardner, Keeney, Miller, Ranncy and Poggenburg. Townsend made the best single average, 8.80; the best grand average. 1.87, and the beat run, &. Those averages wouldn't amount to much in the latter day tournaments.
