What S. S. S. Does
Children are constantly exposed to all sorts of dis
eases. The air they breathe is filled with germs, sewer
gas and dust from the filthy streets are inhaled into the
lungs and taken into the blood. At the crowded school
rooms and other public places they come in contact
almost daily with others recovering from or in the first
stages of contagious diseases. You can't quarantine
against the balance of the world, and the best you can
do is to keep their blood in good condition, aud thus
prevent or at least mitigate the disease. You have
perhaps learned from observation or experience that
healthy, robust children (and this means, of Course,
children whose blood is pure) are not nearly so liable to
contract diseases peculiar to them, and when they do it
is generally in a mild form. On the other hand, weak,
emaciated and sickly ones seem to catch every disease
that comes along. This is because their blood is lack
ing in all the elements necessary to sustain and build
up the body. Poisons of every description accumulate
in the system, because the polluted and sluggish blood
is unable to perform its proper functions.
Such children need a blood purifier and tonic to give
Strength and vitality to their blood, and S. S. S. , being a
purely vegetable remedy, makes it the safest and best lor
the delicate constitutions of children. S. S. S. is not only
a perfect blood medicine, but is pre-eminently the tonic
for children ; it increases their appetites and strengthens
the digestion and assimilation of food. If your child
ren have any hereditary or acquired taint in their blood,
give them S. S. S. and write to our physicians for any
information or advice wanted ; this will cost you noth
ing, and will start the little weaklings on the road to

Msnr l.ar-Cltr C'tr(ja Htcelr
To be the minister In one of New
Vork's big churches Is a lucrative aud
dcslrahle position. The snlarlw are
large and the perquisites often double
the salary. It was said that the late
Dr. John Hall had an Income of be

this his salary was I'J.'.ooO snd the rest
was for marriage fees and other Inci
dentals. Or. Morgan Olx of Trinity receives
to.OOO per annum and his perquisites
are quite as much as wore Or. Hall's.
He has also about twenty assistant cu
rates, none of whom gets less than

Or. MucArthur, of Calvary Church, Is
the best paid Baptist minister In the
city, although his salary does not equal
that of some of the Fplscopal rectors.
Hut bis parish Is large and lie Is In fre
quent demand at weddings. Hy a sort
of unwritten law among the clergy the
minister's wife always receives all
wedding fees. They are supposed to
he her pin money. Some ministers who
are unmarried set this sum aside for
charity, says the New Vork World.
Clergymen who have big churches
and wealthy congregations receive a
substantial recompense for oflhintlng
on these occasions. The custom of giv
ing hlg marriage fees Is every year In
creasing and the bigger the fee the
more complimentary It Is supposed to
be for tl'e bride. For his services at
the christening of the little ones of the
rich the rector also gets a nice check.

One large factor lu the cost of laying

time required to thoroughly mix the In
gredients and pine them In position
for tamping Into the street. Helow Is

final position. The power for operating
the plant Is ohtalucd from any aultnble
motor or englue, hlch also propels the
machine along the road when desired.
The mixing box Is provided with blades
mounted ou a central rotary shaft,
which gradually feeds the mass toward
the spout at the end, where It falls on
the couveyer and Is carried out to the
proper position. This conveyer Is of
considerable length and swings freely
around a seml-clrcle, being easily guid
ed by the attendant. An engineer, a
man to feed the material Into the mixer
and an attendant at the carrier nre tho
only helpers required to do the work,
and the machine does away with the
general litter of mixing platforms,
wheelbarrows, shovels and hoes.
