First a Mole,
Probably no disease carries such ter
ror in its path as Cancer and well
may this dreadful affliction be regarded
with horror. In an alarming manner,
it slowly but surely preys upon the
life's blood, bearing the victim nearer
the grave day by day. Beyond the use
of the knife the physician is powerless,
and too much cannot be said against
the folly of resorting to the knife for
a cure of this terrible disease. Can
cer is in the blood, hence it is apparent
to all that no relief can be expected
from an operation. In ninety-nine cases
out of a hundred the cancer promptly
returns, if not in the same nlacc. in
the same locality, and is far more ma-
lignant than before. The same is true
' . .. .. i
of attempts to remove the cancer by
means of caustic plasters, etc., and a
who have had this treatment cirum
that death cannot be more painful.
But there is a cure for cancer one
which gets at the scat of the disease,
and removes its cause. S. S. S. is the
only real blood remedy, and cures can
cer and all other blood diseases, even
after other treatment has failed.
One of the well-known residents of
Macon, Ga., IsMrTH. Powers, the con
tractor and builder, who lives at 515
Ross street. For twenty years Mr.
Powers has suffered intensely from a
cancer on his face, which was treated
constantly, but grew worse all tha
while. He sought the best medical
kill In vain, and could see no hope of
ver being cured.
On June 22, 1896, he writes: "Twenty
years ago, while being shaved, a small
nole on my face was cut, leaving am
MR. H. POWERS.
insignificant sore, to which I paid little
attention at first. This sore refused
to heal, and after a while became quite
obstinate, and began to grow. I placed
myself under the treatment of promi
nent physicians, who said I had cancer
of the most stubborn type, and though
I took their treatment faithfully, the
cancer grew steadily all the while,
increasing in size and severity. I
also took nearly every medicine
that was recommended for the
blood, and applied various salves
and ointments, all without the slightest
benefit. Year by year, I found myself
steadily growing worse, for the cancer
was sapping my life away, although I
spent hundreds of dollars with doctors,
and as much more experimenting with
various so-called remedies. I was
strongly urged by the doctors to sub
mit to an operation, which they
claimed was the only hope for me.
" I had well-nigh abandoned hope of
ever boing cured, when I was induced
to try S. S. S., and even the first bottle
afforded relief. The medicine caused
the cancer to discharge, thus forcing
out the poison, and ridding the sys
tem of it. I continued to take 8. S. S.
until the discharge ceased, and the
cancer healed up entirely, and I am
perfectly well. My cure is regarded
as truly remarkable, and demonstrates
what a wonderful remedy 8. 8. 8. is.
I shall take pleasure in always recom
8. 8. S. is the only remedy that
gets at the root of all blood diseases,
that all so-called remedies fail to
reach. It Is guaranteed
and cures Cancer, Cotagious Blood
Poison, Scrofula, Eczema, Tetter,
Rheumatism, Catarrh, or any other
disease having its origin in the blood.

Tho turning over of the books ami
monies In tho (hands of the township
olllcurs of Batin township brought to
light a fact which completely knocked
some of Hie eourt hotisn officers in a
heap with surprise. It appears that in
tho past the county supervisor from
that district always plead poverty and
asked tho assistance of the county for
the payment of poor claims and ex
ponso for building and repairing small
bridges. He also stated that the peo
plo up theie wcro poor, could not pay
their taxes and consequently there was
no money in the township treasury to
meet these necessary expenses. Tliu
county board consequently had war
rants drawn for the purpose upon
county funds. When tliu money was
turned over It was found that there
was some live hundred dollars in tho
treasury of this township and hence
the surprise. What object they had In
holding this money is hard to tell un
less they were going to eventually get
enough to build a cunt t house and
make their own laws iu poor old Batin.

Thursday and should be well uttended
by our farmers- The success of last

questionable. These institutes served
to spread useful informuttion along all
phases of farm life and to quicken tho
ambition of young and old. They laid
the foundation for something oven
better in the same Hue this coming
wiuter. The work of preparation for
enlargement over last winter's ex
cellent series is already under way,
and the "campaign of education" is
likely lo he continued inditinitely. An'
interchange of views on farming is a
good thing for any farming community.
