Special Train Makes a Remarkable Kan
from Cheyenne to Omtha.
O.:o hundred fifty-three and a half
miles in 153 minutes is the record
made by a special train which came in
on the Union Pacific from Cheyenne
yesterday morning, says the Omaha
Bee. It was composed of four private
cars, occupied by E. II. Uarriman of
New York, president of the board of

The train left Cheyenne Tuesday

to the limit, and at times the train

Roberts deals severely with General
Warren and some others. Even Gen

Roberts complains that the plan of
operations is not clearly described in
the dispatches. After sketching Gen
eral Buller's intentions as communi
cated to Sir Charles Warren, who
commanded the whole force, Lord Rob

seems to have concluded, after con
sultation with his officers, that the
flanking movement ordered by General
Huller was impracticable, and there

to necessitate the capture and retention
of Spion Kop. which, however, was

The majority of persons upon reaching middle age and past
find their blood becomes weak and thin, and diseases that were
easily controlled in earlier life begin to affect the constitution.
Those predisposed to Scrofula, Cancer, Rheumatism, Gout and other hereditary troubles mar escape
till then, but as they age the blood, so long tainted and weakened by accumulated waste matters is no
longer able to properly nourish the body, and it becomes an easy mark for disease. At this critical period
of life the blood must be re-enforced before it can perform its'legitimate functions and rid the system of
these poisons, and nothing so surely and effectually does this as S. S. S.
S. S. S. strengthens and enriches the blood, improves the appetite, and builds up the general constitu
