The readers of this paper will be pleased to
learn that there is at least oue dreaded disease
that seience has been able to cure in all its
stages, and that ia catarrh. HalTa Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the medical
fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional dis
ease, requires a constitutional treatment.
Ball's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces
i of the system, thereby destroying the founda
tion of the disease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work. The pro-
prietors hare so much faith in its curative
powers, that they offer One Hundred Dollars

Jhe front, and is now known in every city, town and hamlet in the country. Its
taunchest friends are those who have known it longest and have witnessed its
wonderful curative powers in their own families or among their friends and
acquaintances. Grateful patients in all parts of the country tell of their restoration
to health and happiness, and the testimony of these is the highest evidence of the
medicine's worth. S. S. S. is more popular today than; ever in its history no
other remedy stands so high, has ever given such perfect satisfaction or is so
reliable in the cure of Cancer, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Contagious Blood Poison,
Scrofula, Eczema, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum, Acne, or any disease that originates in
the blood. Being strictly a vegetable preparation, you will find it agrees with you
much better than a drug store concoction or any of the widely advertised potash
and mercury remedies, which affect the bones, muscles and stomach, causing
... , ' . Rheumatism or Dyspepsia. If you
UOH't t.XpritM&nt have never tried S. S. S., you will be

but surely it drives out the poisons and restores the blood to a healthy condition.
If there is a sore or ulcer on the body, it begins to heal around the edges, the dis
charge finally ceases and the place gets well; muscular and bone pains vanish, and
the skin is relieved of all itching, irritating eruptions. Nervous, run down and
anaemic people will find S. S. S. just the medicine they need, for blood poverty
and illy nourished nerves are responsible for their condition. For old people and
children S. S. S. has no equal; being free from all minerals, .it does not nauseate
or have any injurious effect whatever, and keeps the blood in good condition, thus
fortifying against disease. Experience teaches what is good and what is not good ;
this applies particularly to medicine, and S. S. S., a remedy that has retained the
confidence of the people for nearly 50 years, must have merit IT CUass, is the
secret m 11s success, wnen you can xor 0.0.0.
don't be persuaded to accept something else
there is no substitute for S. S. S. It is the only
guaranteed purely vegetable blood purifier, and
the safest and best for all blood and skin
troubles. Do not. let them force an inferior
mineral remedy on you because there is a larger
profit in it. It you have any blood or skin dis
ease, don't hesitate to write us about it; our physicians will carefully consider

HOW Tt.E MUSCLES EE AFFECTED
A Well Known Ohio Citizen Cured of
This Stubborn Ailment After Bis
System Seamed Hopelessly
From the Mews, Waverly, Ohio.
Mr. Eli Potts is a well known citi
zen of Waverly, Ohio, having been in
business there for 14 years. He is a
veteran of the Mexican war in which
he served with company H, of the
Fourteenth Tennessee regiment. At
the age of 76he bears the respect oi
all who know him and the following
experience, related by him, is raised
beyond all doubt by the high charact
er of the narrator. He says :
"About seven years ago a disease
fastened upon me which, as it devel
oped, proved to be locomotor ataxia.
I became very nervous, could not walk
without having dizzy spells and did
not sleep well." As the disease ad
vanced I lost control of my muscles
and could only walk a short distance.
I could not control the direction of
my steps and was always afraid oi
falling. " -
"This continued until the fall ol
1897 when there was a breaking down
of my entire system. My, stomach
was in bad condition and I suffered
greatly with kidney trouble caused by
being thrown out of a buggy.
"About two years ago I saw Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
advertised in a Cincinnati paper.
The case cured was similar to mine
and I gave the pills a trial. Very
soon after I began taking them I ex
perienced relief and, as the improve
ment continued, I took the pills regu
larly. Gradually the control of the
muscles was restored and my general
health improved. The dfzzy feeling
left me and has never returned.
From my own experience I know that
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a great
remedy and I am pleased to recom
mend them to any one who suffers as

Thomas Lincoln, the father of Abra

and one yarn that he never tired of re
hearsing was a blood-curdling Indian
tale. One day, when he was about
seven or eight years old, and living In
Kentucky, he was sitting on a fence,
watching his father and older brothers
at work In the field. Without a mo
ment's warning, a small band of In
dians came rushing by on horseback.
One of them, with a sweep of his long
arm, seized the lad and galloped on.
Little Tommy Lincoln looked up Into
the red warrior's face, and said: "Don't
kill me. Take me a prisoner." The
Indian smiled. . Just then a rifle
cracked. Indian and boy tumb'e-l off
the horse, the Indian dead, with a bul
let in his brain. Tommy Lincoln's
brother had come to the rescue.
Once, when Mark Twain was to lec

opened the lecture with a prayer, as
was the custom. Of course the humor
ist was delighted, and accordingly,
when they reached the hall that even
ing, the minister left the lecturer sitting
in the corner of tlje platform, took the
center of the stage himself, and pro
ceeded to offer a prayer about half an
hour long, in the course of which he
gave his views on all the current affairs

"And now, O Lord, we have with us to
