strange experience near Orlnnell. At a
point near that place the train on which
Lewis was operating became stalled. A

part of the train. He began hla work by
stringing torpedoes against the paaaenger
train, which waa soon due. .What hap
oened to Lewis Is not known, but he re
members nothing thnt happened until he
recovered consciousness at Orlnnell, where
he was taken after being discovered un
conncious and bleeding near hla train. He
thinks soma one assaulted him. aa the cars
he was protecting were stationary, all
brake being on. Notwithstanding this
they were found several miles south, where
they had btcome stationary at a point
where there Is a sag In th track. Lewis Is
now In this city. It I thought he will re
cover. Crop Greatly Improved.

Signs of Polluted Blood.
There is nothing' go repulsive looking' and disgusting as an old sore.
You worry over it till the brain (grows weary and work with it until the
patience is exhausted, and the rery sight of the old fentering, sickly looking
place makes you irritable, despondent and desperate.
A chronic sore is the very best evidence that yqur blood is in an tinhealthy
and impoverished condition, that your constitution is breaking down unt!er-v
the effects of some serious disorder. The taking of strong medicines, like k
mercury or potash, will sometimes so pollute and vitiate the blood and im- I
pair the general system that the merest scratch or bruise results in obstinate
non-healing sores of the most offensive character.
Often an inherited taint breaks out in frightful eating sores upon the limbs
or face in old age or middle life. Whenever a sore refuses to heal the blood is
always at fault, and, while antiseptic washes, salves, soaps and powders can
do much to keep down the inflammation and cleanse the sore, it will never
heal permanently till the blood itself bag been purified and the deadly genus
and poisons destroyed, and with S. S. S. this can be accomplished the polluted
S. S. S. is both a blood purifier and tonic that puts your blood in order
and at the same time tones up the system and builds up the general health.
