Eczema, Tettrr, Tsoriasis, 6ai,t Rhkom, Acnu and a grent ninny other
diseases of like character are classed as skin diseases, when they could jtmt a
properly be called blood diseases, for they undoubtedly orif-innte in the blood, like
Cancer, Catarrh, Scrofula, Rheumutistn, Contagious Blood Poison, etc. ; the only
real difference being in the intensity and nature of the poison. The more serious
diseases, Cancer, Catarrh, etc., are caused by some specific poison or virus, which
to either inherited or in other ways gets into the blood aud attacks certain vital
organs or appears in the form of terrible sores and ulcers, while the milder nno
laik dangerous skin diseases are caused by blood humors or an over acid condition
of that fluid. Thcte acid poisons, as they ooe out through the pores of the skin
cause great irritation, with intense itching and burning. The eruption may be of
a pustular kind, with excessive discharge of thick, gummy fluid, or the skin may
be hot, dry and feverish, swollen and fissured. Skin diseases, whether they appeal
as sores, blotches or uiiiiiik-s

To purify and build up the polluted blood is the right treatment for skin
diseases, and for this purpose no other medicine is so deservedly popular as S. 3. 8.
It is a perfect antidote for all blood humors, end when taken into the circulation,
gently but thoroughly eliminates all impurities and cuts the blood in a healthy,
normal state.. The skin can't remain in an irritated, diseased condition when
nourished with rich, new blood. 8. 8. 8. is the only guaranteed purely vegetabl
rsmedv, and the ssfest and best skin beautifier. Write our physicians if you have

show strong coal measures, This
body of coal Is lignite of fine quality,
at arester distances from uie sunace,
K are many indication, of
natural n and oil. but no prospect
ing has been done for either.. In the
coal deposits, the local men have run
several tunnels and sunk shafts
through twenty feet of solid coal, In
fuct have found so much coal that but
little digging was required to get It.
There I no question but that the de
posit Is s very large one. These coal
measures are fifteen miles from tint
mouth of the (Irande Honda Hlver.
This river I not navigable, but the
Snake, Into which It emptle. has a
reuular line of sleamboata running to
the mouth of the river, and the mat
ter of getting thla coal to market
would requite the building of a road
for fifteen mile to connect with (mats

However, It Is probable that a rail-
road will run throuah these coal fields
in the near future, aa they are on the
route mapped out by the Burlington
for reaching the Const, where the nest
' possible grades can be secured down
the (Irande Itonde Hlver. The Oregon
