affirmed that every allegation made
by the plaintiff was In error and If
there are laws subject to broad appli

Allowing for a few minor details that
might possibly be Irregular, the no

meet the end for whfch they were In

more than a half hour.

his arguments, the court took to ask

OF DISEASE AIID SUFFERING.
ITa truth is more forcibly manifested in physical life than theold saying
" like begets like ;" for just as the offspring of healthy ancestry are blessed
with pure, rich blood, insuring health and strength, so the children of hlnoH
tainted parentage inherit a polluted circulation to burden their existence ,
wim aisease ana sunenng. . Swollen glands about the neck, brittle bones,
weak eyes, pale, waxy complexions, running sores and ulcers and general
poor health, are the usual ways in which Scrofula is manifested. In some
cases the blood is so filled with the scrofulous germs and tubercular matter
that from birth life is made miserable with suffering. Others who Inherit
the disease succeed in holding the trouble in check during young, vigorous
life, but when the system has begun to weaken and lose its natural vitality,
and especially after a spell of sickness, the ravages of the disease will com
mence, and in a great many cases terminate in Consumption. S. S. S. is the
