Too Much Knife I
The use of the surgeon's knife !s be
coming so general, resulting fatally
in such a large number of cases, as to
occasion general alarm. Tne press al
most daily announces the death of some
unfortunate whose system could not
withstand the shock of an operation,
and whose life was cruelly sacrificed to
the keen blade of the surgeon.
Of course, in some instances an
operation is necessary, and is the
only means of saving life, but such cases
re exceedingly rare. So many deaths
occur under these conditions, however,
that the public is beginning to realize
that the doctors are too hasty in resort
ing to the knife, and if such a state of
affairs continues, there will before long
be general uprising against such meas
ures It is but reasonable to believe
that the majority of operations are
unnecessary, but when the fatal mistake
is discovered too late, only the doctors
ever know of their error, and though a
precious life is given up, the public is
assured that death would have resulted
ia spite of the operation, and who is
ever the wiser i
The folly of resorting to the knife in
cases of cancer, is demonstrated every
time it is undertaken. The disease is
in the blood and the cancer or sore is
but the outward manifestation of a
terrible condition of the entire circula
tion. To cut out this sore, therefore,
does not in any way effect the disease,
and it can easily be seen that the only
correct treatment is to get at the seat of
the disease, and purify the blood; the
ore will then heal up naturally. S.S.S.
is the most powerful blood remedy made,
tad ia the only cure for cancer.
UK. WIU4AM WAI.POTA
To submit to an operation, is to volun
tarily endanger one's life, without the
lightest hope of being benefitted.
Mr. William Walpole, is wealthy
planter residing at Walshtown, South
Dakota, and is well known all over the
state. 'Under date of January soth, 1896,
he writes; "About three years ago. there
came under my left eye a little blotch
about the size of a small pea. It grew
rapidly, and for the pastjear, shooting
pains ran.in every direction. I became
alarmed and consulted a good doctor,
who pronounced it cancer, and said that
it must be cut out This I would not
consent to, having little faith in the in
discriminate use of the knife, though I
was alarmed at my condition. Reading
of the many cures made by S.S.S., I
determined to give that medicine a trial,
and after I had taken it a few days, the
cancer became irritated and began to dis
charge. Tbisafterawhileceased, leaving
small scab, which finally dropped off,
and only a healthy looking little
scar remained to mark the place where
the destroyer had held full sway .Words
are inadequate to express my gratitude to
the great blood purifier, S. S. S., and I
write this hoping that it may be the means
of leading other sufferers toa cure."
Cancer is not incurable, but the only
means of curing it is to rid the blood of
the disease, S.S.S. aevsr fails ta do
this, but It is the only remedy to be re
jfeu upon. It is guaranteed purely
vegetable, and cures Cancer, Scrofula,
Eczema, Catarrh, Rheumatism and any
other disease of the blood. Other blood
diseases often develop into such alarm
ing conditions that the doctors think an
operation necessary. Scrofula, for in
stance, often diseases the glands of the
neck to such an extent that an operation
is looked upon as absolutely the only
relief. This is also grave error, as the
disease is in the blood and a real bla'l
remedy is the only cure.
An operation never did cure blood
disease. Beware of the knife I

A Small Fortune for Medicin

From tbo Eiamlner, Sao Francisco, Cal.
"Wby everybody knows the good
that Dr. William-.' Fink Pills did me,'
was the cheerful generality with which
Mrs. Franoii Leek, of room 39, 1206
Market street, Ban Franoisoo, Cal.,
aniwered the qneation whether she bad
taken Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, As she looks the picture
of health her story was the more sur
"Yon would hardly believe it," she
oontinned. "bat I was an invalid for
ten years. I spent $4,000 being treated
in hospitals in Chicago for rbeuma
tiim, nenralgia, nervous prostration
and fibrous tumors, and then to think
that I spent only $6 in Pink Pills and
am a well woman. 'It makes me mad
to think I spent so much and then got
well for $6, still I am glad I did get
well. No one oonld ever guess how I
oame to take the pills. I have a little
granddaughter, at least she calls me
'grandma,' though I am not really her
grandmother. One day we were rid'
ing in the oars in Chicago and she be'
gan to read, 'Pink Pills for Pale Peo
pla ' It seemed to tickle her and she
would rattle it off just as if she had
learned a line of poetry, and sometimes
the wonld get it turned about and say,
'grandma, what is Pale Pills for Pink
Well, yon see I got familiarized
with the name of Pink Pills and one
day when I got a little book about
them I sat down and read it all
through. I was not good for much
else but sitting down or lying down,
and I thought I d give them a trial. J
guess there is not muoh more to say,
Look at me. I don't look muoh like
an invalid today, do I ? "
It was perfectly true that Mrs. Leek
did not look muoh like an invalid, and
it is no secret that she was married only
about six months ago. She said that
she always keeps the pills by her bed
side, and prodnoed handful of the
little ronnd boxes as evidenoe of her
faith in them. "I have had it on my
mind to write to Dr. Williams direct
and thank him for all 'the good they
have done me; but one thing and then
another oame up and I have not writ
ten yet. 1 have recommended them to
scores of people and probably that did
more good than writing. Oh I yon oan
pat me down for the Pink Pills every
time. I believe in them and I oan tell
the gennine pills, too, right off. There
is nothing that ia 'just ai good for me
I want the real pills every time.
Mr. Franoii Shnlty, of 713 Taylor
street, said: "Yea, the Pink Pills did
for me all that was olaimed for them.
I used them for about five months.
They were reoommended to me by a
druggist on the corner of Oak and
Gongh streets, the Eagle drug store is
the name, I think. I was ran down,
very nervous, and suffered irom indi
gestion. The ' dootor said my blood
was thin and that I needed change of
air and all that kind of thing. Well,
I oouldn't do that, and thia frienJ of
mine just told me kind of off hand to
try the Pink Pills. 1 have tried pills
before that were supposed to cure ev
erything and I did not have much con
fidence, but when a man is sick he
don't care what he tries if there is a
ohanoe to get well. I got the pills
one box, that is. It did me good, I
began to feel better right away and I
kept on with them. I have got over
all my nervousness and I must Bay they
did me' a world of good. "
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills oontain, in
condensed form, all the elments nec
essary to give new life and riohness to
the blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are an unfailing speoifio for such
diseases as looomotor ataxia, partial

The First Fedal Action Bicycle Ever
A wooden bicycle alleged to have
been built in 1858 and to be the first
pedal action machine constructed is on
exhibition In the window of a bicycle
house In New York. The wheel has
many, novel features, despite Its antiquity.-
The owner discovered It in a
small town near Utlca, N. Y., and, ap
preciating Its worth, purchased It.
While the wheel Is quite old and has
no doubt suffered some rough usage,
it Is In good condition. It weighs 108
pounda, nearly 84 pounds heavier than
the average bicycle in use to-day. An
Ingenious and curious part Is the frame,
which Is a piece of Iron curved to fit
'the wheel. The steering gear, while
not elaborate In either finish or design,
Is very strong. A large Iron coaster is j
attached to the forks above the front
wheel. The saddle Is a large affair, be
ing of heavy wood, eighteen Inches
long and twelve Inches wide, and is ad
justable, As are also the pedals.
The diameter of the front wheel Is 30
Inches and the rear wheel Is 28 Inches
Both are made of ash. This bicycle,
which Is regarded as a novelty now, Is
valued at $500. When wheels of thib
design were In use cycling trips con
sisted of short rides, which were suf
ficient to exhaust the enthusiasm of the
most ardent rider.
