' Itching, distignring eruptions, rashes, boils, etc., well as pimples,
Mack-heat! and rouj;h, scaly skins, show the presence of some irritating
humor in the blool. These acids and humors with which the blood Is filled
are being constantly thrown off through the pores and glands, and the skin
is kept in a feverish, diseased and ttnsit;htly condition. Is'othinj applied
externally can chjne the condition of the blood or prevent the outflow of
M)isojjs and acids; only constitutional treatment can do this. The countless
wa-j'bcb", salves, lotions, etc., thst are used cannot reach the humor-laden
Mood and aic. therefore, uselesSj except for the temporary comfort and clean

trouble, must b; removed before a cure can be tGected. S. 3. S. is a real

the Independent Telephone
VYe, iKo tindcrsfgnod, In convention npsembleil now In the. tlie City of Omalia, desire to state to the good ju-ople of this city that we are sent here to represent the people of our respective
communities to help get an independent telephone connection with Omaha, which is the only town in Nebraska without independent telephone connections. We wish the people of Omaha to under-'
stand that this is not purely a local matter, that the whole state is deeply concerned, that we desire connection with you from our own telephones and that we now put the matter up to you to
. decide whether you will connect with us or not.
We want to do business with Omaha. "Will the people of Omaha turn us down! If they do. they might as well say, "send your business to some other city, Ave do not want it." Do
the people desire this to happen f Give us what we ask for and Omaha will'be the gainer thereby many times over. Our wires are now at your city limits, coming from, every direction. Are
you going to let us in? "
AVe know Messrs Joseph J. Helm, T. E. Parmele and T. IT. Pollock, and know them to be men of telephone experience. They are honorable, clean and safe, and if you pass this franchise"
we will guarantee Omaha connections with every independent telephone in Nebraska and Iowa.

Iist evening's meeting of the Hoard of
Education wan a abort one. The only in
teresting feature of the session was pla
cing the health commission In absolute
authority of the schools no fur as the
health regulations are affected.
Member Lindsay Introduced a resolution
reading, "No pupil who Is suffering from
a contagious or infectious disease, or who
has lwn exposed to such disease, shall lx
allowed to continue in the publio schools
Any pupil thus excluded shall be permitted
to return to school only upon the presen
tation of a certificate over the signature of
the health commissioner stating the. exact
date on which he may return, such certifi
cate netting forth the t'aet that tl.e pupil
is fre from possibility of communicating
the dUcese from which he has recovered
or to which ho has been exposed."
The resolution was ndopted without a
dissenting vote. The purpose of tho reso
lution was to piece the matter of health
regulation entirely In the bands of the
health commissioner and thus preclude the
possibility of any controversy between par
ents and school authorities. Heretofore It
has leeu the practice for the principal of
a school to send the lrnrent n notice of
the date on which the pupil might return.
The school uuthor'rtes and health depart
ment have conferred on the matter and
agreed as to the necessities in tl;e pix ni

required by law.
