dressed the convention and urged that 11
Incorporate under the state law and come
under the provisions ' of the Insurance
statutes of the state. The association Is
a purely mutual and fraternal one and has

. Did Not Want Examination.
It now transpires that a few days ago
the late George Wood of Colfax, who
committed suicide, refused to permit the
state auditor to make an examination of
his bank. While It Is a private bank and
the state bank examiners have no right to
look' Into Its affairs, yet Mr. Wood had
begged to be permitted to receive deposits1
rora the reserve fund of the state bank at
axter. In which he was interested, and
as this was contrary to law he was asked
to permit an examination of the affairs of
Ms .own bank before it could be done. He
declined. He did have some of the Baxter
bank money on hand, but only a small
.mount. The bank at Baxter will reopen
on Monday, as the directors are able to
handle It easily. Mr. Wood also owned
stock In the new state bark at Mlnden, In
tottawattamle county, and that bank re
cently had about 11.100 on deposit at Col
fax, but now has only small sum 1121.
The Mlnden bank Is therefore not Involved.
Investigation has been going on today
with regard to the county deposits at Col
fax. It Is found that Polk county has up
ward of $30,000 there and that Jasper
county has $12,000. Other counties also have
some sums on deposit, generally secured
by bonds. The funeral of Wood will occur
on .Monday and the bank will reopen on
Tuesday. The other bank's In which he
was Interested will reopen on Monday,
Wood had, $50,000 life Insurance,

playing, dancing and theater-going
should not he specified In the discipline of
the Methodist Episcopal church as pro
hibited amusements la the opinion of Bishop
Charles H. Fowler of Buffalo, who arrived
In Sioux City today. "That clause was put
into the discipline In 1872," said the venera
ble bishop, "and it was one of the biggest
blunders ever made by the church. The
clause Is incomplete and Impracticable. It
leaves out a great many sins that may be
committed, but which cannot be antici
pated. The clause ought to be repealed and
a now one substituted which would be more
general and leave the matter open for the
judgment, discretion and honesty of the
Individual, That Is what makes the man
and makes character. I should not be sur
prised to see a change in this clause pro
posed at the general conference next May
at Ixs Angeles."

Hereafter all prisoners sentenced to the
county Jail for minor offenses, such as in
toxication, vagrancy, etc., will be com
pelled to work on the county roads. The
farmers recently held a goed roads con

they realized that the county's finances
were not In shape to bear the expense of
macadamising the roads. It was pointed
out that this obstacle could be surmounted
by making prisoners In ..the county Jail
transform the Illkept highways Into serv
iceable roads, and Supervisor McQuillan
accordingly Introduced a resolution to this
effect, which was unanimously adopted.

The most loathsome and repulsive of all 1
thines is the serpent, and the vilest and most
degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The serpent
sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes through
the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little ulcer,
soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the whole
system. Painful swellings appear in the groins, a red rash and copper col
ored splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat become ulcerated,
and the hair and eve brows fall out ; but these symptoms are mild compared to
the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter stages of the disease
when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the body. It is then that
Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideonsness. The deep eating ab
scesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show the whole system is corrupted
and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon this 6erpent disease tightens its
coils and crushes out the life. The only antidote for the awful virus is S. S. S.
It cures permanently the most desperate cases. It is
natufO's remedy, composed entirely of vegetable
ingredients. S. S. S. destroys every vestige of the
poison and removes all danger of transmitting the
awful taint to others. Nothing else will do this.
Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash, dry up the sores and drive
in the disease, but do not cure permanently.
