The great draw back to all iron
fencing ha been the difficulty of se
curely fastening the joint (wire to
wire) o that tliev will not slip. ,
These joint have alway slipped. '
They constitute the one weak point.
If they become loose the whole fenced
soon goes. That ha been every-:
one' experience and is the base of all
trouble with wire (cueing. !
Recently a genius solved the prolv
lem by inventing a clamp which
bind the wire and bend and "an
chors" a joint into perlect security.
The thing ia ao simple that people
wonder why someone did not think of
it before. But the important point is
that the clamp does its wonderful
work unerringly, and from now on all
wire (ence can he made tenfold more
durable. Of course the big parent
company that secured the patent tor
thi wonderful "anchor clamp" is
having ji phenomenal success. "An

the "anchor clump" in wire work is
Comparable to the deed of the niau
who invented the head to the ordinary

wire fence can lie converted
into an "anchor" fence if you have

A Constitutional Affection. I -
Sprays, washes, powder, salve, medicated
tobacco and cigarettes, however long and persistently
used, do not cure Catarrh. They relieve temporarily
the inflammation in the throat and nose, and enable
you to breathe more easily and freely, but the con
tinual rush of impure blood to these parts keeps up
the irritation and ultimately produce ulceration of
the glands, when the breath become exceedingly
offensive and the soft bone of the nose are frequently
destroyed. The catarrhal inflammation extend over
the entire surface of the mucou membrane, or inner skin ; the stomach, kidney
and lungs are often involved ; the whole system soon become affected by the rapid
absorption of poisonous matter into the blood, and the disease that you had hoped
to cure with'simple local remedies, assumes a dangerous form.
I had Catarrh about IS year, and
trleddurin th time everything-1 could
hear of, but nothln- did m any rood.
At last I eama to- th conclusion that
Catarrh must be a blood dlaaaaa, and
daelded to g-lve 8. 8. S. a trial. I oould
lee a little improvement from the llrat

"Catarrh is a constitutional disease a blood disease which ia frequently
inherited, and only a Wood medicine, auch aa S. 8. S., can remove the hereditary
taint, destroy the poisons that have been accumulating in the system for year
perhaps, and restore the blood to a healthy and pure condition. The inflamed
membranes and diseased glinda are healed by the ricli, pure blood which is carrUd

to possess perennial powers (like the

that Dean Buckland (father of the
genial Frank) bad exploded the toad
In the rock myth once for nil. The
Dean Inclosed toads and frogs In cells
cut In blocks of atoue, and burled them
three feet deep lu his gurden. Here
the conditions were even less rigorous
than those under which the amphibians
ore reported to survive for uges lu the

were nearly all dead by the end of the

comes of "a long Una of proud ances
try," be can be, contradicted at once,
because there Is no such thing as "a
long line of ancestry;" one's ancestry
vanuot le represented by a "line,'' but
by an Inverted pyramid. Every on ot
in come one by one, but of many hun
dred and thousand of long line of
ancestry, some of them proud, per
ils 1 is, and others with no causa for
pride, but rather the reverse. It will
not do to try to follow them all too far
back. Borne one of the many will sure

prison, or It may be to ths Tyburn
gallows tree. We cannot pin our faith
to the one cavalier, and Ignore all tbe
others, as my friend was trying to do,
because It Is Nature's plan that all the
good and oil the bad ot the race should
