foes down to the teat of the disease, thus permanently eliminating every
trace of the taint
The serious conseauences to which Scrofula rui-aIt leada
should impress upon those afllicted with it the vital im
portance of wasting no time upon treatment which can
not possibly effect a cure. In many cases whero the wrong
treatment lias been relied upon, complicated glandular
swellings have resulted, for which the doctors insist that
a dangerous surgical operation is necessary.
Mr. H.E.Thompson, of Milledgoville, Ga., writes: "A
bad caso of Scrofula broke out on the glands of my neck,
which had to bo lanced and caused me much suffering. I
was treated for a long while, but the physicians were un
able to oure mo, and my condition was as bad as when I
began thair treatment. Many blood remedies wore used ,
but without effect. Some one recommended S. S. S., and
I began to improve as soon as I had taken a few bottles.
Oontiauing the remedy, I was soon oured permanently.

The Storm at Bladen.
Bladen and vicinity was visited Mon
day ovoning with tho most severe
storm ever experienced. About 0 p.m.
it commenced to ram nnd tho clouds
soon gathered und tho rain began to
full in torrents. Hail also fell during
the ontiro storm which lasted until
uftcr 1) p. iii. About 8 o'clock it formed
into u very heavy thunder storm and
in a very few minutes four buildings
in and adjoining the town were struck
by lightning. Tho Congregational
church was struck at tho steoplo and
very badly damaged from top to bot
tom. Tho loss is estimated at $300,
fully insured. Next the public school
building was served in a liko manner
with about tho same amount of dam
ago. Mr. Pashby's houso was struck
but only slight damago resulted. At
Mrs. N. Springer's the barn wus struck
nudono horse killed.
Tho heaviest loss was caused by the
wind which formed into a cyclone live
milos south of town. At Mr. James
Locktiart's where the storm seems to
havo done tho most damage, the sceno
after tho storm was certainly distress
ing. The houso was wiecked und tho
barn and othor out buildings totally
demolished, together with ull farm ma
chinery and wagons nnd buggies, und
an eye witness says there woh not
enough good lumber left to build a pig
pen. A part of the barn was nicked
up by the wind and jammed through
the nortb side of the house where the
kitchen is located. A larce stove
which was in tho house was found sit
ting out in tho yard after the storm.
and as yet only pieces of the farm ma
chinery and buggies and wagons havo
been found. At W. B. Cramer's tho
dtoim racked his residence, tearing
out part of tho north end and tho
porches, and causing the houso to lean
to the nortb. The barn and other out
buildings wero totally destroyed. A
wagon load of shelled corn which had
been left standing in the feed vard was
scattered promiscuously around and
the wagon at laBt accounts had
not been found. Nino bead of horses
were in the barn when it went but all
escaped Injury. Tho farm machinery,
etc,, was also destroyed. The barn,
out buildings and machinery on the
old Rust proporty, now occupied by
mto Dtibes were demolished, aad at
the place of Jno. Zajio considerable
damago is also reported. Along the
path of tho storm trees are twisted
and orchards and crops considerably
damaged, and considerable small
stock reported killed.
Mr. Cramer, we understand, is the
only one who had any tornado insur
ance, and ho not enough to cover bis
loss. Thoso who sustained damago by
lightning wero insured with tho excep
tion of Mrs. Springer. During the
storm fully four incites of water fell.
We are glad to state that tho storm
did not reach over a very large area

Ivory Soap gives new energy. It lathers quickly in any
kind of water and does not cost more than common
soap. The luxury of being clean is not realized without
using Ivory Soap. You need not fear alkali, or other

nothing but pure materials, combined to make a soap that

Was Probably Our Tommy.
Tho following from Walt Mason's
writings in the Sunday Stato Journal
no doubt refors to Tommy Quinn ; "A
man who looked to bo a hundred years
old tottered up to a Boatrlco door nnd
asked for a night's lodgings in tho barn,
'I want no monoy,' ho cried with great
vehemence, 'I want no monoy or gifts;
I only ask to Bleep In the barn; I have
come a long way, and I am dead tired;
I could sleep standing. I won't smoko
and you needn't bo afraid of fire,'
The old chap was miserably dressed,
bontwith ago nnd want, and was a pit
iful speotaclo in divers ways. Whon
he had slept for a while ho told a story
that was melancholy and surprising,
and the greater part of it, at least, is
known to be true. Twelve or thirteen
years ago this forlorn vagrant was sup
erintendent for a very wealthy Nebras
kan who undertook large contracts; ho
had dozens, sometimes hundreds of
men under bis charge, and drew a
largo salary, and lived up to it pretty
closely, although he did buy two or
three town lots and a farm not far from
Red Cloud, Tho capitalists who em
ployed him died, and ho seemed to
havo struck tho tohaggan in had shape
Ho is today homoloss nnd penniless
andvory, vory old; and ho says that ho
has been swindled out of his property
by lawyers, nnd he is walking to Red
Cloud to seo if the farm can be saved
to him. This is a sad story of real lifo,
and of course it has its moral: 'Salt
down some dough when you are pros
perous, for you know not when tho
day of disaster comoth.' "
Weather ol the State.
Report of stato weather observer, A.
G. Lovcland for the weok ending Juno
The past weok has boon cool, with
heavy local showers in tho eastern
counties, and only vory light showers
in tho western. The uveragu daily
temperature has varied from about
normal In the extreme eastern portion
of the state, to 2 degrees bolow normul
in tho western part. Light frosts oc
curred In northwestern counties on the
0th and 8th.
In most of the eastern third of the
state tho rainfall of the weok exceeded
half an inch, tho rain falling in show
ers mostly on the 8th and 7th. I11 the
western counties the rainfall was gon
orally less than a quarter of an inch.
The past week has been a most favor
nblo one for tho growth of crops in tho
eastern half of tho state. In most of
tho western half more rain would bo
bonofioial, nnd in tho southwestern
counties small grain has boon injured
by tbodry weather. In the northeast
ern counties small grain is in excellent
condition nnd has grown well.
Corn has grown well in all parts of
tho stato. Tho dry wcathor in the
wostsrn part of tho stato has not affect
ed it unfavorably. Cultivation of corn
has mado rapid progross in central and
western counties, and the crop is free
of woods. In tho region of heavy rain
fall cultivation has boon delayed some
what, and some fields aro becoming
weedy. Corn is ssmewbat backward
in northeastern counties, but taken as
a wholelit is in hotter condition than
usual at this time of year.
Alfalfa is being out and tho crop is
generally light. Cherries and straw
berries are ripo in southern counties.
