her of a hacking cough that for many years
had made life a burden. All other remedies
and doctors could give her no help , but she
says of this Royal Cure "it soon removed the
pain m my chest and I can now sleep soundly ,
something I can scarcely remember doing be
fore. I fell like sounding its praise through
out the Universe. " So will-every one who

Ho Torture Not much attention is often paid to the
Equal first symptoma of Eczema , but it is not long
before the little redness begins to itch and d
Itcliing and Burning of burn. , This is but the beginning , and will d
lead to suffering and torture almost unen S
durable. It is a common mistake to regard
This Fearful Disease. a roughness and redness of the skin as
. merely a local irritation ; it is but an indica
tion of a humor in the blood of terrible
Eczema which is more than skin-deep , and can not be reached by local appli
cations of ointments , salves , etc. , applied to the surface. The disease itself ,
the real cause of the trouble , is in the blood , although all suffering is produced rj
through the skin ; the only way to reach the disease , therefore , is through 3
the blood. 3U
Mr. Phil T. Jones , of Mixersville , Ind. , writes : d
"I had Eczema thirty years , and after a great deal
of treatment my leg was so raw and sore that it gave me j
constant pain. It finally broke into a running sore , and il
beganto spread and grow worse. For the past five or ilv
six years I have suffered untold agony and had given up
all hope of ever being free from the disease , as I have
been treated by some of the best physicians and have
taken many blood medicines , all in vain. With little a
faith left I began to take S. S. S. , and it apparently A
made the Eczema worse , but I knew that this was the
way the remedy got rid of the poison. Continuing
S. S. S. , the sore healed up entirely , the skin became a
clear and smooth , and I was cured perfectly. " ii
Eczema is an obstinate disease and can not be cured by a remedy which is iid iid
only & tonic. Swift's Specific d
S. S. S. FOR THE BLOOD
is superior to other blood remedies because it cures diseases which they oan i
not reach. It goes to the bottom to the cause of the disease and will cure
the'worst case of Eczema , no matter what other treatment has failed. It is
the only blood remedy guaranteed to be free from potash , mercury or any
other mineral , and never fails to cure Eczema , Scrofula , Contagious Blood
Poison , Cancer , Tetter , Rheumatism , Open Sores , Ulcers , Boils , etc. Insist ii
upon S. S. S. ; nothing can take its place.
Books on these diseases will be mailed free to any address by Swift 8p -

MRS. MINNIE FINITYPress Supt.
Good-by , Old Year , fjood-by !
Your destiny you soon will reach ,
And with you the century rolls away ;
On the billows you are rocked and gently sway
And the world is wrapped in sleep.
Go , go bury thv sorrow
Let the past be doomed with the past
Let your tears be tears of gladness ,
Let your life be of joy , not of sadness ,
For time drifts so silent but fast.
May we greet this Happy New Year
With a smile , but determined face ,
To unfurl the nation's banner ,
To imbue the world with honor ,
And lift up the fallen race.
The mothers' meeting held at Mrs
Howe Smith's was opened in the usual
manner , by scripture reading and prayer
by our supeiintendent After which
she announced the subject , "Bringing
in the Sheaves , " and gave an interesting
talk , inviting all present lo participate
The next business meeting will be
held at Mrs T. B Campbell's , Jan 12 ,

solve , this new year , to be more zealous
in the cause we represent.
A decision of the Kansas supreme
court , just handed down , affirms the
sentences passed upon a half dozen
prominent liquor dealers at lola and
Humholdt , Kan. , by Junge Stilwell
Some of them will have to suffer the
severest penalties ever imposed upon
violators of the Kansas prohibitory law
Joseph Langley and Charles Groth will
have to go to the Allen county jail for
600 days each , pay fines of $ rooo , each
and give bonds in the sum ofsooeacl
to guarantee their good behavior for two
years. John Whittick goes up for 360
days and must pay $600 ; Joseph Nagle }
must pay $700 and be confined 315 days
Frank Nimerick must pay $600 and be
confined 270 days , and D. Whittick mus !
go up for 120 days and pay $400. Th <
men were sentenced over two years ago
and have since been fighting the case !
in the higher courts , which have de
cided against them on every turn. Ex
Mayors McElroy of Humboldt , and Tay
lor of Tola , and ex Police Judge Card o
lola , were also indicated for officially
abetting the violation of the prohibitory
law by having an understanding with the
liquor dealers , and they are now in the
appellate court trying to quash tne in
dictments. Mida's Criterion.
It has been decided that the nationa
convention for 1900 will go to Washing
ton , D C. This is the choice of a large
majority of the state presidents for a
number of reasons It is the consensus
of opinion that having been to the mid
dle West last year and to the far West
this year , we should go East next year.
Washington is very accessible , especially
to the southern women , which cannot be
said of many other places. The thought
is to call the convention for November
30 , let the executive meetings occupy
the first two days as usual , and the con
vention proper be in session the first
week in December. This will enable
most of the delegates to spend Thanks
giving at home , and allow them to be
present at the opening of the United
States congress , which bridges two cent
uries. We can thus celebrate the close
of this wonderful nineteenth century
and make an impress upon the first year
of the twentieth century , viz , 1901. Our
twenty-seventy annual convention should
be worthy of the notable time in which
it is to be held , the notable city where it
will be entertained.and the notable work
which the organization is called to do.
Already the fine new opera house , La
Fayette , has been engaged for its sessions
and for headquarters. Ail energies should
be bent toward making the progress of
this year surpass that of any other in the
history of our organization. Indianapo
lis , Milwaukee and Pittsburg were next
in the hearts of the women , who are be
lieving that time cannot kill true love
and that these cities will renew their
liospitable proposals to the national con

A startling incident , of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia , was the subject , is
narrated by him as follows : " 1 was in a most
dreadful condition My skin was almost
yellow , eyes sunken , tongue coated pain con
tinually in back and sides , no appetite giad-
ually growing weaker day by day. Three
physicians had given me up. Fortunately , a
friend advised trying 'Electric Bitt- * : ' and to
my great joy and surprise , the first bottle made
a decided improvement , 1 continued their use
for three weeks , and am now a well man. I
know they saved my life , and robbed the grave
of another victim " No one should fail to try

You may have heard
about SCOTT'S EMULSION
and have a vague notion
that it is cod-liver oi ! with
its bad taste and smell and
all its other repulsive fea
tures. It is cod-liver oil , the
purest and the best in the
world , but made so palata
ble that almost everybody
can take it. Nearly all
children like it and ask for
looks like cream ; it nour
ishes the wasted body of
the baby , child or adult
better than cream or any
other food in existence. It
bears about the same rela ;
tion to other ejnulsions that
cream does to milk. If you
have had any experience
with other so-called "
- "just as
good" preparations , you
will find that this is a fact. ]

combined with the cod-liver oil :
give additional value to it because
they tone up the nervous system
