    Difficult Digestion
That Is dyspepsia.
It makes life miserable.
Its sufferers eat not because they teawf to,
but simply because they mutt.
They know they are Irritable and fretful;

They complain of a bad taste in the
mouth, a tenderness at the pit of the stom

headache, heartburn and what not.

When there is a natural and healthy circulation ot tne blood, the entire
quantity, estimated at one-eighth the weight of the body, passes through the heart ..
every five minutes. This rapid flow of the blood through the system prevents the
entrance of disease germs and impurities of every description: It filters out all that -is
not necessary or good for the growth and development of the body and nourish
ing and strengthening the muscles, tissues, nerves and bones. - But, unfortunately,
few persons can rightly claim an absolutely pure blood supply and perfect and
unpolluted circulation, and in consequence are exposed to innumerable diseases.
Contagious Blood Poison, the greatest enemy to mankind,, enters the -system
through the blood, and Cancer, Scrofula, Rheumatism, Catarrh, Eczema, Salt

naturally grows thin and pale because of- the lack of the red corpuscles that give
color and strength to youthful blood. Sallow complexions and rough, oily skins
evidence some constitutional or blood trouble, which salves, lotions, powders nor
any external treatment can cure.- Diseases that originate in the blood, whether
they manifest themselves as ulcers, tumors, itching eruptions, muscular or bone
pains, require a tonic and blood purifier such as S. & S., which not only antidotes
and neutralizes blood poisons and humors, but possesses health-giving tonic proper

the disease and eliminates from tie system every

grow stronger, and sores and eruptions of every kind disappear. .

Rapid as has been the advance
medical science along many lines,
is only in recent years that a remedy
has been discoevred for one of the
most dreadful of nervous diseases that
affliced children St. Vitus' dance,
This and other nervous disorders
that cause the pale and wan faces and
peevish, irritable dispositions of -so
many children can now be. scien
tifically treated . by a remedy that
strikes at the root of the disease by
renewing the impoverished blood and
strengthening the nerves.
Words of commendation for this
remedy come from all - parts of the
civilized world. This is the interest
ing story told by Mr. and Mrs.- Chris-
topher Armstrong, of Jefferson, Okla.
"Our youngest daughter was for
three years afflictetd with St. Vitus,
almost despaired of
finding relief in medical treatment.
She was so helpless that she had to be
fed and would fall over at times and
be unable to rise.
. We had heard and read a great
deal about Dr. Williams' Pink Fills
for Pale People, and, as a last resort,
deterimned to try them. The effect
was alomst miraculous. From the
first box there was a noticeable im
provement and by the time -she had
. taken six boxes she was almost well,
Altogether she took about-? a 'dozen
boxes, and by the time- she ' was 13

Here Is tbe latest story of Judge
Henry E. Howiand, one of the most
popular after-dinner speakers of New
York: "There was a little boy who was
badly puzzled over the theory of evolu
tion. He went to his mother and ask
ed: 'Mamma, am I descended from a
monkey? - I don't know,' she answer
ed; 1 never met any of your father's
people." "
Herbert A. Giles gives tbe following
example of Chinese humor in his "His
tory of Chinese Literature": "A man
who had been condemned to wear a
wooden collar was seen by some of his
friends. 'What have you been doing?'
.they asked him, to deserve this 7 'Oh,
nothing he replied: 'I only picked up
an old piece of rope.' 'And you are to
be punished thus severely,' they said.
for merely picking up an end of rope 7
'Well,' answered the man, 'the fact Is
that there was a bullock tied to the
other end.' " -
In his biography of Phillips Brooks,
Alexander V. G. Allen of Cambridge
tells of a clergyman who was going
abroad, and talked in jest of bringing
back a new religion with him. "You
might have some trouble in getting it
through the custom house," some one
remarked. . "No," observed Bishop
Brooks; "we 'may take it for granted
that a new religion would have no du
ties attached." Another person, , for
the sake, no doubt, of argument, once
drew attention to the fact that some
men, calling themselves atheists, seem
ed to lead moral lives, and Brooks
promptly disposed of it. 'They have
to," said he; "they have no God to for
give them if they don't." - .
An old Scotch farmer once' went to
have a troublesome tooth extracted.
Said the dentist, after looking, at the
offending molar: "It is a very ugly one.
I would advise you to have it out by
the painless system.-' It is only a shill
ing extra." He showed the farmer the
apparatus for administering gas, re
marking that it would cause him to
fall asleep for a minute, and before he
awoke the tooth would be out. After
a slight resistance the sufferer consent
ed, proceeding to open his purse. "Oh,
never mind paying just now!" said the
dentist, kindly. "Hoots V answered the
cautious old Scot, "A' wasn't thinking
o' that; but If A'm ga'en ta sleep A'
thocht A' wad like ta count ma siller

Frederick the Great once had occa
sion to rebuke his cavalry for shirk
ing their duty. According to "A His-
tary of Frederick the Great," he said
"Gentlemen, I am entirely dissatisfied
with the cavalry; the regiments, are
completely out of hand; there is no ac
curacy, no order; the men ride like
tailors. I beg that this may not occur
again, and that each of you will-pay
more attention to his duty. But I know
how things go on. You think I am not
up to your dodges, but I kno.w them all,
and will recapitulate them. When the
season for riding-drill comes "on, tbe
captain sends for the sergeant major,
and says: 'I have an appointment this
morning at , tell the first lieutenant
to take the rides,' :S the sergeant ma
jor goes, to the senior subaltern and
gives him the message, and the latter
saysr 'What! the captain will be away?
Then I am off hunting; tell the' second
lieutenant to take the men.' And the
second lieutenant, who is probably .still
in bed, says: "What! both of them
away? Then I will stay where I ahi.
I was up till three this morning at
dance; tell the. cornet I am ill, and he
must take the rides.' - Finally, the cor
net remarks: 'Look here, sergeant ma
jor, what is the good of my standing
out there In the cold? You know all
about it much better than I do, you
go and take them.' 'And so it goes, and
what must be the end of it all? What
can I hope to do with such cavalry be
fore the enemy?"
. Identifying TJncle James.
Uncle James, from away out West,
came to town one day recently to visit
his kinsfolk, who live in 13th stret, just
above Iowa circle.' It so happened that
nobody in the family except the second
daughter, Nancy, had; seen vTJncle
James in years and years, and, as she
was unable to leave her room, Johnnie,
who is 12 years old and as ingenious as
they make them, was told to go to the
station and meet the gentleman.. TJncle
James alighted from . tbe train - and
walked slowly toward the station en
trance, looking this way and that for
somebody, to welcome him. . He had
passed through the gate and was enter
ing the waiting room when Johnnie ran
up behind him and touched blm on the
arm.': v-"v'i-s-'-Xj-:...'--';"
: "Lemme'-carry yonr traveling bag.
TJncle James T he said.' "I'm Johnny.
TJncle James was delighted. ' ' .
"Why, how in the world did you
know me, my boy?" he asked.
"I wasn't sure until I saw yonr back,"
Johnnie made answer. "Nancy told me
how you looked, and as soon as I got
behind you I knew it must be you.
Nancy said you ' was a water-melon-shaped
man with a double chin on the
back of your neck." Washington Post
After Addison.
One of the best instances of witty
quotation is recorded by a writer in tbe
Washington Post: . - v

Sir Rainald Knlghtley (who was the
living double of Dickens' Sir Leicester
Dedlock), expatiated after dinner on
the glories of his pedigree. -
The company was getting a little
restive under the recitation, when Sir
William Harcourt was heard to say
in an appreciative aside, "This reminds
me of Addison's evening hymn:
