I was afflicted with Tetter in bad shape.
It would appear in blotches as large as my
hand, a yellowish color, and 6cale off.
You can imagine how offensive it was.
For twelve years I was afilicted with this
trouble. At night it was a case of scratch
and many times no rest at all. Seeing the
good the medicine was doing a friend
who was taking it for Eczema, I com
menced it, and as a result the eruption be
gan to dry up and disappear, and to-day
I am practically a well man. Only two
tiny spots are left on the elbow and shin,
where once the whole body was affected.
I have every confidence in the medicine,
and feel Bure that in a short time these
two remaining spots will disappear.
S. S. S. is certainly a great blood puri
fier, and has done me a world of good.
I am grateful for what it has accom
plished, and trust that what I have said
will lead others who are similarly afflict
ed to take the remedy and obtain the
same good results that I have.

Washington, Dec. 6. On tho stroke
of 12 today tho second session of the
58th congress will bo called to otdcr by
President Pro Tern Fryo in tho eonnte,
and by Speaker Cannon in the Iioubo.
When the gavels of the presiding ofll
ccrs summon tho senators and repro
sentatives to duty nearly overy member
will be in his seat, but only routino
business will bo trnnancted.
The president's message genorally is
received" and road the first day, but
the senate is punctilious in certain
matters, and is almoat suro to adjourn
as a tribute of respect to the late Sen
ator Hoar, of Massachusetts, and the
late Senator Quay, of Pennsylvania.
The message, therefore, probably will
not be read until Tuesday.
After tho opening day, when tho
mcesaco of tho president- is read, the
regular business of tho session will lo-
gin nnd the legislative wheols will
grind steadily until March, 1905.
There is plenty to do. Tho calendars
of both houses are loaded with bills of
all kinds; hundreds of new bills will
be introduced, and committors aie
ready to report enough to Keep congress
busy for 12 months, but in the three
months congress probably will do little
more than pass the regular annual
There has been some talk of a possi
ble) extra session. The only reason
why such a session should be called ip
because there is a demand in certain
quarters for a revision of the tariff, but
many of the incoming congressmen
during the past two weeks have made
it plain they do not want tariff revision
and further say that they do not want
an extra session.
There ia one feature of the tariff re
vision talk that has some substance.
More revenue must be had, or there
must be a curtailment of expenditures.
With the increasrng annual appropria
tions, a river and harbor bill, increase
of the navy, the Panama canal and
other features of extraordinary dis
bursement, there will be need of more
money than present customs and inter
nal revenue provide. An intimation
has been made that curtailment will
satisfy many congressional leaders, but
the majority may determine otherwise,
in which event some revenue legisla
tion may be necessary, and an extra
session for that purpose may be called.
But this is said to be a remote con
tingency, and the probabilities, accord
ing to the leaders who are here, are
that there will be neither tariff legisla
tion nor an extra session.

Hermann Will Co-operate With San

tive Hermann appeared today before
the rivers and harbors committee with
the expectation of having a hearing, so
that he might piesent the needs of
vaiious river and harbor imnrovements
along the Oregon coaBt, but was in
formed that the committee is giving no
hearings. An arrangement lias been
made, however, for a hearing before
the subcommittee, at which time Mr.
Hermann will appear with the delega
tion from San Francisco, now en route
to Washington to urge a liberal appro
priation for the improvement of the
siuslaw river. Mr. Wendling, a large
shipowner of San Francisco, who ie
deeply interested in the Siuslaw trade,
will head tho committee. If permitted
to do so, Mr. Hermann will also urge
tho fmbcemmittec to make liberal an
propriations for other rivers and har
bors' along the Oregon coast.
