R. & N. com pany, the former titles held by divis ion officials, such as division engin eer, etc., have been abolished and from now on all of those officials will be classed as assistant superinten dents.

Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, etc., are troubles which affect .he skin, their source b far deeper than the outsida cuticle. These aJections ire causod by irritating humors, or uratio acid in the blood. Such lmnurities inflame and irritate the delicate net-work of fibrous tbsue which lies Just beneath the s irfaco of the outer skin, and the infiim natory discharge thu3 produced is forcad out through the pores and gUnis, and is continually kept up while tlie blood remains infected. This exudation causes the form itlon of smiles and crusts so often soen in Eczemm, and when thev arc scratched oflf the flrsh is left raw and more susceptible to other infection It can very readily ba seen then that to produce a cure the circulation must -e puriflcd .md cloanaad. This S. S. S. will do. It goes down to the very otton, removes til humors and impurities, neutralizes the excessive acido f the srstnm nnd in this wy removes the cause of disease.
