FOR TWENTY YEARS MAJOR MARS
SUFFERED FROM CATARRH OF THE KIDNEYS
DANGEROUS KIDNEY DISEASES CURED iMff
Pe-ru-na Creatine a National Sensation In the Cure
of Chronic Ailments of the Kidneys.
Major T. H. Mars, ol tbo first Wis
cousin cavalry rcgimsnt write from
1425 Dunning street, Chicago, UK, tho
For years I suffered with catarrh
of the kidneys contracted In the army.
Medicine did not help me any until a
comrade who had been helped by I'c
runa advised me to try it. I bought
some at once, and soon found blessed
relief. I kept taking it four months,
and am now well and strong and feel
better than I have done for tho past
twenty years, thanks to Pcrana."
T. II. Mars.
At tbo appearance of the flrit symp
torn of kidney trouble, Peruna should
bo taken. This remedy strikes at onco
I he very roots of tho dlteaso. It at
once relieved the catarrhal kidnoys of
tho stagnant blood, preventing the e
cape of teruin from the blood. Peruna
stimulates the kidnoys to excrete, from
tho blood the accumulating poison, and
thus prevents the convulsions which are
sure to follow if tho poisons are allowed

The world to-day S3 full of innocent sufferers from that most loathsome
disease, Contagious Blood Poison. People know in a general way that it is
a bad disease, but if all its horrors could be brought before them they
would 6hun it as they do the Leprosy. Net only the person who contracts it
suffers, but the awful taint is transmitted to children, and the fearful cores
and eruptions, weak eyes, Catarrh, and other evidences of poisoned blood
show these little innocents are suffering the awful consequences of some
body's sin. So highly contagious is this form of blood poison that one may
be contaminated by handling the clothing or other articles in use by a
person afflicted with this miserable disease. There is danger even in drink
ing from the same vessel or eating out of the same tableware, as many pure
and innocent men and women have found to their sorrow. The virus of
Contagious Blood Poison is so

tainted with the poison, and the
ekin is soon covered with u red rash, ulcers break out in the mouth and
throat, swellings appear in the groins, the hair and eyebrows fall out,
and unless the ravages of the disease are checked at this stage, more
violent and dangerous symptoms appear in the fonn of deep and offcnslvn
sores, copper colored splotches, terrible pains in bones and muscles, and
general breaking down of the system.
S. S. S. is a specific for Contagious Blood Poison and the only remedy
that antidotes this peculiar virus and makes a radical and complete cure of
the disease. Mercury and Potash hold it in check so long as the system is
under their influence, but when the medicine is left off the poison breaks out
again as bad or worse than ever. Besides, the use of these minerals bring
on Rheumatism and stomach troubles of the worst kind, and frequently pro
duce bleediug and sponginess of the gums and decay of the teeth. 8. S. S.
cures Blood Poison in all stages and even reaches down to hereditary taints
can be taken without any injurious effects to health, and an experience of
nearly fifty years proves beyond doubt that it cures Contagious Blood Poison
completely and permanently. Write for our "Home Treatment Book,"
which describes fully the different stages and symptoms of the disease.

The summer colony nt Lowlnnd fllon

wero bundles of swell doings, as the
slangy Ynlo couimlu of Hetty would
put It. The army oUlcers from Port
Khennnn were much In evidence, mid
one young captain In particular was
very much in evidence In tho vicinity
of Miss Hetty Itawllns. Hetty buw the
evidence clearly, and how she did wish
that tho priMldent would retire koiiiu
few hundreds of superior oMcern ho
that Itoy Lanyard could tack tho nln
brovlatlon "CoL" to tho front purt

Ono day there was oxcltemwit at

Captain Itoy Lanyard looked on and
was miserable. ' Betty gave him two

the entire week,
"No show for ono of Uncb Hani'

King Kdwnrd'a men with it drawl mid

Colonel iteglnald Bouthcote was not

one day what bin regiment was, mid
lie replhd promptly: "I mu the colonel

Hetty had heard tales alnuit IluglUh
men pretending to he whnt they were

One day Lawyer Coke, who looked
after Hetty Itawlln' estate, heard
from n closo friend that a certain Eng

himself, and then, as tuck would havi
It, he hnppemd to pick up n copy of
the Ilroad Arrow, tho Jouninl of th
united sitvIccs of (I rent Hrltnlu.
Lawyer Coko looketl at It. Ilia eyn
fell on n paragraph and he chuckled.
Ho folded the paper up, put It In till

Lowland (Hen. Ho marked the para
graph In the paper and put It where h
know Hetty would bo Mire to pick It
up, and from the nature of the publica

It from start to llnlsh.
Hetty Hawllns felt that the hour wns
coming when she would have to nil
awer n question put to her by Colonel
Iteglnald Bouthcote. Bho was think.
Ing of" this when she picked up the
Hroad Arrow, Hhe knew whnt the
paper wns, for she had heard of It.
Bho read It eagerly. Tho date of tho
paper was three months back. Tho
mnrktd paragraph caught her eye. Bho
"(Jenenil Powcll-Badeu Inspected tho

has seen no foreign service and very
little at home, had hard work to glvo

ers. "Militiaman; never miw a daj's
real service; couldn't sit on his horse;"
mid then Hetty gasped. Her thoughts
turned to another paragraph that sho
had read In an American Journal. It
told how one Captain Hoy Landynrd
had received tho Congressional modal
of honor for personal gallantry In tho
saving of the Ufa of a comrade under
llerco flro In tho Philippine Island.
Hotty knew that night nt tho bull at
tho hotel that Colonel Ueglnuld Boiith

avoided him. Captain Itoy Lnnynnl
met her mid sho mull d on him, mid
the.ro was a look In her eyes that madu
tho young soldier's heart leap. "Won't
you go for a walk with mo?" ho snld,
"Yes," sho answered Hoftly,
As they pinoied down tho hotel steps

Lawyer Coke, who was standing on
tho veranda, smiled, and, being a bit
