William Carroll Finds Benefactors

BURNS, Or., Jan. 15. (Special.)
William Carroll, whose legs were
broken as the result of the fall to the
bottom of the 85-foot well In Catlow
Valley on December 17, where. he and
his friend, John L. Koontz, were im
prisoned for six days, will be a cripple
for life, as both feet were amputated
As told In The Oregonian following
the accident and the awful experience
of the two men, Carroll's feet were
frozen while the assembled neighbors
were carrying him about two miles to
a house where he could receive care,
and though the broken bones of the
legs hare knitted all right and almost
entirely healed, the frozen feet have
not responded to treatment, but be
came so bad that friends brought him
to Burns and Dr. Harrison realized the
upper limbs and his lire could be saved
only by amputation of the blackened
and gangrened extremities, botn oi
which were cut off between tne ankle
and the knee.
The patient stands an excellent
chance of living provided the gangrene
does not set in again.
Carroll has no relatives in this
county and is a young man or small
means. A paper was circulated in
Burns Saturday evening and quite a
sum was raised to aid him in procuring
surgical aid. The Harney County News
has also started a more widespread
subscription for his further care and to
procure him a pair of artificial feet in
case of his recovery.

Rev. Theron Baldwin, secretary or tne

afterward. Rev. Atkinson attended a
meeting of the Congregational and

Wonderful Specific for Sci
atica, Lumbago, and a
Cure For Dreadedt Ar
tism. There, is a host of pills, powders, tab
lets and what-not for rheumatism, but
they all lack the first essential to beintr
a natural medicine. To begin with,
rheumatism Is simply a name given to
designate a variety of pains, and can
only be reached by Irrigating the entire
blood supply with a naturally assimila
tivA antidote. Trim the pains may be
eased with narcotics or the acids may
b neutralized for the time being with
other acids. But these merely tem
porize and do not even lead to a cure.
There Is but one standard rheumatism
remedy, and It reflects the best thought
of the day. It Is prepared In the great
Swift Laboratory In Atlanta, Ga., and
sold In all drug stores under the name
of 8. S. S. at 81.00 a bottle.
Starvation has been advocated by
many as a cure for rheumatism, and
yet S. S. S. accomplishes in fact what
faddists proclaim in theory and without
the punishment of starvation. Hot
springs and sweating are often recom
mended, but S. S. S. does all that is
expected of these expensive and weak
It is conceded by the closest stu
dents of the. subject that rheumatism
Is caused in most cases by an acid
condition of the blood and aggravated
by the remedies commonly used for re
lief. In other cases rheumatism Is the
result of nervo depression: in still
others it is the effect of some scro
fulous blood condition, having been
treated with mercury, iodides, arsenio
and other poisonous mineral drugs.
The recoveries of all these types of
rheumatism by the use of S. S. 8. Is
a wonderful tribute to the natural effi
cacy of this remarkable medicine, for it
is assimilated just as naturally, just as
specifically, and just as well ordained
as the most acceptable, most palatable
and most readily digested food. Do not
fail to get a bottle of S. S. S. today.
You will be astonished at the results.
If your rheumatism is of such a nature
that you would like to consult a great
specialist confidentially, write to The
Swift Specific Co., 127 Swift Bldg.,
