Too Much Knife I
The use of the surgeon's knife is be
coming so general, resulting fatally
in such a large number of cases, as to
occasion general alarm. The press al
most daily announces the death of some
unfortunate whose system could not
withstand the shock of an operation,
and whose life was cruelly sacrificed to
the keen blade of the surgeon.
Of course, in some instances an
operation is necessary, and is the
only means of saving life, but such cases
are exceedingly rar$. So many deaths
occur under these conditions, however,
that the public is. beginning to realize
that the doctors are too hasty in resort
ing to the knife, and if such a state of
affairs continues, there will before long
be a general uprising against such meas
ures It is but reasonable to believe
that the majority of operations are
unnecessary, but when the fatal mistake
is discovered too late, only the doctors
ever know of their error, and though a
precious life is given ap, the public is
, assured that death would have resulted
in spite of the operation, and who is
ever the wiser ?
The folly of resorting to the knife in
cases of cancer, is demonstrated every
time it is undertaken. Tike disease is
in the blood and the cancer or sore is
but the outward manifestation of a
terrible condition of the entire circula
tion. To cut out this sore, therefore,
does not in any way effect the disease,
and it can easily be seen that the only
correct treatment is to get at the seat of
the disease, and purify the blood; the
sore will then heal up naturally. S. S. S.
is the most powerful blood remedy made,
and is the only cure for caacer.
. '- MR. WILLIAM WALPOtS.'
' To submit to an operation, is to volun
tarily endanger one's life, without the
slightest hope of being benefitted.
Mr. William Walpole, is a wealthy
planter residing at Walshtown, South
Dakota, and is well known all over the
state. - Under date of January 20th, 1896,
he writes; "About three years ago, there
came under my left eye a little blotch
about the size of a small pea. It grew
rapidly, and for the past year, shooting
pains ran in every direction. I became
alarmed and consulted a good doctor,
who pronounced it cancer, and said that
it must be cut out This I would not
consent to, having little faith in the in
discriminate use of the knife, though I
was alarmed at my condition. Reading
of the many cures made by S.S.S., 1
determined to give that medicine a trial,
and after I had taken it a few days, the
cancer became irritated and began to dis
charge. This after awhileceased, leaving
a small scab, which finally dropped off,
and only a ' healthy looking little
scar remained to mark the place where
the destroyer had held full sway .Words
are inadequate to express my gratitude to
the great blood purifier, S. S. S., and I
write this hoping that it may be the means
of leading other sufferers to a cure."
Cancer is not incurable, but the only
means of curing it is to rid the blood of
the disease. S.S.S. never fails to do
this, but it is the only remedy to be re
lied upon. It is guaranteed purely
vegetable, and cures Cancer, Scrofula,
Eczema, Catarrh, Rheumatism and any
other disease of the blood. Other blood
diseases often develop into such alarm,
ing conditions that the doctors think an
operation necessary. Scrofula, for in
stance, often diseases the glands of the
neck to such an extent that an operation
is looked upon as absolutely the only
relief. This is also a grave error, as the
' disease is in the blood and a real blorl
' remedy is the only cure.
An operation never did cure a blood
. disease. Beware of the knife I

TREASURES IN OLD BOOKS.
Valuable Document Discovered by a
Becona nana ueaier. .
In reply to a query from a correspon
dent a London second-hand book-seller
said: "I frequently make finds In
books I buy. It4is extraordinary the
number or things that are slipped be
tween the pages of books for a mo
ment and afterward entirely forgotten.
Letters without number I have found,
and flowers, locks of hair, unmount
ed photographs, bank notes, checks and
many other things, too.
"I bought a volume of a well-known
work from a lady some years ago, and
when she had gone, while turning over
the leaves, came across a will which
disposed of some thousands of pounds'
worth of property. I put the will care
fully away, and the following day the
lady returned In a frightful state of ex
citement and wanted to buy the book
back at my own price. I guessed what
she really wanted, but thought It rather
strange that she should ask to buy the
book Instead of merely asking to be
allowed to examine It, which would
have been just as effective. : However,
I told her I had found the will, and
supposed that that was what she want
ed. She looked confused, but confessed
It was, so I handed It to her and she
went away. Up to this time that will
has not been filed, so I have learned,
and I have not the slightest doubt that
It has been suppressed for the purpose
of depriving some one of the property
which It disposed of. But the most In
teresting case In which I have been con
cerned In this way happened not, long
. "A well-dressed gentlemanly man
bronght me three bulky volumes and
wanted me to purchase them. As they
were of a class of books the value of
which varies considerably, acordlng to
the condition and edition, and I was
very busy at the time, I asked him to
leave them that I might examine them,
and call the next day. This he con
sented to do, and went away. When I
looked at them I. came across a large
number of bank notes. They were
evidently quite new, and there was
something about them which made me
doubt their authenticity. I compared
them with notes of my own, but could
not discover the faintest dissimilarity.
However, to make sure of the matter,
I sent them to be paid Into my bank.
Naturally when my messenger came
back, having passed the notes without
the slightest difficulty, I concluded they
were all right
"The next morning I received a mes
sage from the manager of the bank
saying he would like me to call upon
him. I went round, and was not very
much surprised when he said that ev
ery one of the notes I had banked the
day before were forgeries. I explained
the matter, and we wired to Scotland
Yard. That afternoon I had a new as
sistant In my shop. ' Toward the close
of the day the owner of the three vol
umes came sauntering Into the shop
and asked If I Intended to buy them.
At a sign from' me my new assistant
a detective pounced upon him and
hurried him off. Scotland Yard had
been looking for him for a long time, it
appeared. I have still the books In
my library. I keep them as a memento
of the occurrence." Cassell's Maga

How "The Bells" Was Written.
John Sartaln, well known as the first
great American engraver, and, more
over, as a man of letters, the half -owner
and managing editor, in the forties, of
Sartain's Magazine, the friend of all
the great literary men of his time, still
lives quietly in Philadelphia. Mr. Sar
taln was a firm friend of Poe. In his
wild moods, frequently, It was Mr.
Sartaln only who could control the out
burst. Mr. Sartaln used tobuy Poe's
hasty lines and thus furnish the poet
with a dinner sometimes sadly need
ed. It was In this way that he bought
"The Bells." One day Poe, very ragged,
rushed into the office of the magazine,
with a bit of verse that he wished to
sell. Out of compassion for his ap
parent suffering,' the editor bought the
poem. After the writer had rushed
out, he read It, without much admira
tion; and filed it away. This is the
The bells, hear the bells,
The merry wedding bells, ,
The little silver bells,
How fairy-like a monody there swells
From the silver-tinkling cells of the bells.
The bells, ah, the bells!
The heavy iron bells,
Hear the tolling of the bells;
Hear the knells;
How horrible a monody there floats
From their throats! ' ,
From their deep-toned throats; .
How I shudder at the notes
From the melancholy throats
Of the bells, of the bells!
Presently Poe, very wroth, asked
why the poem had not been published.
Being informed, he wrote a second,
more elaborate version, and when that
too had been refused he wrote a third.
This was the form In hlch the poem
at last appeared. Boston Common

Mrs. Leek Spends $4,000 In the
Effort to Regain Health.
Mr. Sanity's Experience With Nervous
Prostration and Its Attend
'.. tag Evils. ',' '. -.
From the Examiner, San Francisco, CaL
"Why everybody knows the good
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills did me,"
was the cheerful generality with which
Mrs. Francis Leek, of room 29, 1206
Market street, Ban Frauoisoo, Cal.,
answered the question whether she had
taken Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. As she looks the picture
of health her story was the more sur
prising. "You would hardly believe it," she
oontinued, "but I was an invalid for
ten years. I spent $4,000 being treated
in hospitals in Chioago for rheuma
tism, neuralgia, nervous prostration
and fibrous tumors, and then to think
that I spent only $6 in Pink Pills and
am a well woman. It makes me mad
to think I spent so much and then got
well for $6, still I am glad I did get
well. No one could ever guess how II
came to take the pills. I have a little
granddaughter, at least she calls me
'grandma,' though I am not really her
grandmother. One day we were rid
ing in the cars in, Chicago and she be
gan to read, 'Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple. ' It seemed to tickle her and she
would rattle it off just as if she had
learned a line of poetry, and sometimes
she would get it turned about and say,
'grandma, what is Pale Pills for Pink
People for?' .
"Well, you see I got familiarized
with the name of Pink Pills and one
day when I got a little book about
them I sat down and read it all
through. I was not good for much
else but sitting down or lying : down,
and I thought I'd give them a trial. I
guess there is not much more to say.
Look at me. I don't look much like
an invalid today, do I?"
It was perfectly true that Mrs. Leek
did not look muoh like an invalid, and
it is no secret that she was married only
about six months ago. She said that
she always keeps the pills by her bed
side, and produced a I handful of the
little round boxes as evidenoe of her
faith in them. VI have had it on my
mind to write to Dr. Williams direct
and thank him for all the good they
have done me; but one thing and then
another oame up and I have not writ
ten yet. 1 have recommended them to
scores of people and probably that did
more good than writing. Oh! yon can
put me down for the Pink Pills every
time. I believe in them- and I can tell
the genuine pills, too, right off. .There
is nothing that is 'just as good' for me
I want the real pills every time."
Mr. Franois Shulty, of 712 Taylor
street, said: "Yes, the Pink Pills did
for me all that was claimed for them.
I used them for about five months.'
They were reoommended to me by a
druggist on the corner of Oak and
Oough streets,. the Eagle drug store is
the name, I think. I was run down,
very nervous, and suffered from indi
gestion. The dootor said my blood
was thin and that I needed change of
air and all that kind of thing. Well,
I oouldn't do that, and this frienJ of
mine just told me kind of off hand to
try the Pink Pills. 1 have tried pills
before that were supposed to cure ev
erything and I did not have much con
fidence, but when a man is sick he
don't care what he tries if there is a
chance to get well. I got the pills
one box, that ia. It did me good, I
began to feel better right away and I
kept on with them. I have got over
all my nervousness and I must say they
did me a world of good. "

The experiments being made by the
Chicago professors, Pi'att and Wight
man, to determine positively whether
X rays will kill the germs of deadly
diseases, continue to prove satisfactory
and the experimenters are more firm
ly convinced than ever that the Uni
versal panacea has at last been found.
These men, wlio are scientists with na
tional reputations, declare that "bacilli
which they placed under the cathode
rays were completely destroyed. Since
then they have made further disebver
ies. The germs of consumption, diph
theria, typhoid, cholera, pneumonia,
anthrax, glanders and influenza have
been tested. The first three were al
most completely annihilated. After be

length of time efforts were made to re

dead. The cholera germs were stunned
for fourteen days, but were not killed.
Neither were the breeders of pneu
monia, influenza, anthrax and glanders
killed, but they were barely able to
resume work after the exposure, and
the professors believe that these missed
slaughter merely by reason of being
Improperly placed in the test tubes.

satisfaction that the X ray Is the dead-
