Fruit of all kinds, with the exception
of peaches, is very plentiful here this
year, consequently yellow jackets are
numerous. In a recent paper was an
article setting forth the good qualities of
yellow jackets, stating that "as they
freed the tree from insects, they were
justified in taking a share of the fruit."
That may be right in some respects, but
when the busy house-wife labors diligent
ly preparing fruit for the drybouse or to
the curing qualities of the sun, and a
short time afterwards finds nothing but
the bare skins remaining, they have
taken their reward, and unjustly, too.
A very interesting meeting was held
lately among the Grand Ronde Indians,

opened with prayer. Sister Margaret
led the singing with voice and organ and

Is a blood disease and only a blood reme
dy can cure it. So many people make
the mistake of taking remedies which
at best are only tonics and cannot possi
bly reach their trouble. Mr. Asa Smith,
Greencastle, Indiana, says: “For years
I have suffered with Sciatic Rheuma
tism, which the best physicians were un
able to relieve. I took many patent
medicines but they did not seem to
reach my trouble. I gradually grew
worse until I was un
able to take my food
or handle myself in
any way; I was abso
lutely helpless. Three
bottles pf S.S.S. re
lieved me so that I
was soon able to move
my right arm; before
long I could walk
across the room, and
when I had finished one dozen bottles
was cured completely and am as well as
ever. I now weigh 170.”
