COON GRANTS NO HOLIDAY
Acting: Governor Fears to Comply
With Seattle's Request.
OLYMPIA, Wash., May 16. (Special.)
Acting Governor Coon today refused
to declare a legal holiday on the occa

similar holidays. The Acting Governor
did issue a proclamation, however, urging
all citizens to refrain from the usual
avocations on the days the fleet is pres
ent, and join in the welcome.

Lucien O. Appleby announces that he

When the modern system of bookmak

Henry Stanford having introduced it,
Appleby was one of the first to offer

in all the years that have gone by since

Bad blood 13 responsible for most of the ailments of mankind. When
from any cause this vital fluid becomes infected with impurities, humors or
poisons, disease in some form is sure to follow. Eczema, Acne, Tetter,
Boils, Pimples, etc., while they show on the skin, have an underlying' cause
which is far deeper an impure, humor-infected blood supply, and until this
is corrected, and the blood purified, the distressing itching and burning
symptoms will remain. Rheumatism, Catarrh, Sores and Ulcers, Scrofula,
Blood Poison and all other blood disorders, are the result of a vitiated, pol-.,
luted circulation, and will continue to grow worse unless the poison is re
moved from the blood. In all blood and skin diseases S. S. S. has proved
itself a perfect remedy. It goes down into the circulation and removes all
waste matter, humors or poisons, and makes the blood pure and health-sus-.
taining. Nothing reaches Inherited taints and old chronic troubles like
S. S. S.; it cures because it purifies the blood and restores lost properties to
the impoverished circulation. Not only i3 S. S. S. a blood purifier of the
highest order, but a tonic and appetizer without an equal. Book on the
