EXTERNAL EVIDENCE OFIOTEMAL POISON
Whenever a sore or nicer refuses to heal, it Is a sure fifon of a diseased
condition of the blood. The sore itself is simply an outside evidence of
Some iriternal poison, and the only way to cure it is to remove the deep
underlying cause. Sores and Ulcers originate usually from a retention in
the system of bodily waste matters and impurities. These should pass off
through the natural avenues of waste, but because of a sluggish condition of
the different members they are retained in the system to be taken up by the
blood. This vital fluid soon becomes unhealthy or diseased, and the
skin gives way in some weak place and a Sore or Ulcer is formed. The con
stant drainage of impurities through a sore causes it to fester, grow red and
inflamed and eat deeper into the surrounding flesh, and often there is severe
pain and some discharge. S. S. S. is the remedy for Sores and Ulcers.
It is nature's blood purifier, made entirely
of vegetable matter, known to be specifics
for all blood diseases and disorders. S. S. S.
goes down to the very bottom of the
trouble, and removes the poison and im-
w i.p-n.v.n r- Pure matter, so that the sore is no longer
PURELY VEGETABLE fed with impurities, but is nourished and
cleansed with a stream of healthy, rich
blood. Then the place begins to heal, new flesh is formed, the inflamma
tion subsides, and when S. S. S. has thoroughly cleansed the circulation the
place heals permanently. Special book on Sores and Ulcers and any medical
advice desired will be sent free to all who write.

the destruction of competition at any cost,
and this policy has been pursued without
much reference to decency or conscience,
and It is slgnflcunt that the larger Inde

that he could not compete with it here.
On the question of remedies the report
More than anything else the pipe line has
contributed to the Standard oil monopoly,
and Its supremacy must continue until Its
rivals enjoy the same transportation facili
ties. The amended act to regulate com
merce makes the exlmlng pipe lines com
mon carriers subject to that act, and the
power to preserine lust ana reasonable
rates, regulations and practices, after com
plaint and hearing, is conferred upon the
commisslom. Hut the pipe line tarifia tiled
with the commission are alleged to be of
no actual advantage to the independent op
erators. The commission can only act upon
these schedules after complaint has been
made challenging such reference rales.reg
ulatlons yr practices. Some complaints are
now pending. How far the amended act
will prove adequate ,. the correction of
such injustice as now exists in respect to
this traffic remains to be seen.
Since In the past petroleum rates have
not always been established to promote,
but often to check traffic, and the tariffs
are more or less TVTfrreated with, discrim
ination in favor of the Standard Oil com
pany, having been built up during a series
years in that view'.;' it may be that this
discrimination Will nerer. be eliminated by
any .process of cotnpilnt against a specific
rate or practice. -Judging by the past, dis
crimination asyto. thls truffle may. arise
more frequently than those now existing
can be routed out by that method. As to
no other Improved traffic Is there an ap
proach to the monopoly of the Standard
oil In that of oil. . Under this conditions It
may become necessary to the uprooting
of established wrongs and the prevention
of others that the government shall fix in
the first Instance the rates and regulations
for the transportation of this traffic. This
method has been adopted by the legislature
of one state. It ru-obably will be found
necessary to disassociate In the case of oil,
as In that of other oommodlties. the func
tion of transportation from that of produc
tion and distribution. What other remedies
in addition to those already provided It
may be necessary to prescribe can be better
determined In the near future by the re
sults or experience In administering the
present law. . .
PARDON FOR ARMY DESERTERS

four Inmates of the military prison at Fort
Leavenworth, most of them men who had
been punished for deserting from the army.
were released today on an order from the
secretary of war.
This is the largest number of men ever
freed from any military prison at any one
time, The men had been sentenced to serve
from one year up In the prison, and all had

There was not enough cltirens clothing

adrift without a cent In their pockets. The
majority came to Leavenworth during the
day and begged for food and shelter for
the night. Some of them managed to get
as far as Kansas City with money borrowed
from soldiers at Fort Leavenworth.

J. D. fihanthtn, Government Expert, Dem
onstrate! the Moisture Test,
SAYS FEDERAL INSPECTION WILL COME
Department of Aa-rlenltnre to F.stab
Hah Laboratories, Probably One
t Omaha. If the Money
Can Bo Seenred.
J. D. Shanahnn, a grain expert employed
by the Department of Agriculture, was at
the Omaha Grain exchange Monday after
noon demonstrating the moisture test for
the grading of grain. The department is
convinced that the grading of grain prin
cipally by the determination of the mois
ture content Is the only method which will
Insure a standardisation of grades In the
various markets. It Is sending Mr. Shana
han out on a mission of education, and he
Is demonstrating at the principal grain
markets and at state experimental stations.
He tested samples from eight or ten cars
of grain at the exchange yesterday. The
method Is to boll the corn In oil. under a
heat of 190 degrees centigrade, and measure
the percentage of water that comes from It.
"It Is the only scientific way of grading
corn," said Mr. Shanahan. "Inspectors
commonly grade their grain by feeling It
to determine the moisture content, though,
of course, other things enter Into consid
eration. No man can tell how much water
corn holds by feeling It. According to
the dampness of the air or the temperature
of his fingers, he may grade corn No. 8
one day which he pronounced No. 4 the
day before. In making experiments In
the Chicago market a short time ago I
tested some corn which had been graded
No. 4 and found It to be better corn than
some which hnd been graded No. $.
"The department will endeavor to get an
appropriation to establish laboratories at
all the large markets for Just such work
as I am doing. At present the law limits
them to the seaboard, and we have but two,
one at Baltimore and one at New Orleans.
If the appropriation Is secured one of these
laboratories probably will be established at
Omaha. The laboratories would be pri
marily for the experimental purposes of
the government, but I anticipate that as the
grain markets became educated to our
methods they would ask us to do their
grading for them.
"Though It Is not a part of my mission to
preach the gospel of federal Inspection of
grain, I have no doubt a federal Inspection
law will be passed within two or three
years. It Is the best way to do away with
the difference In grading of grains at va
rious markets. I have found by my tests
that some markets grade grain lower than

SOLDIERS ARE1 ON TRIAL
Lleatenant and Private Aecnaed of
Harder Fare Civil Conrt at
PITTSBURO, Jan. 28 A murder trial the
outcome of which will establish an Im
portant precedent In legal and military cir
cles was called here today In the criminal
branch of court. Lieutenant Ralph W
Drury and Private John Dowd of the Ninth
United States Infantry were placed on trial
charged, with the murder of William Crow
ley, 18 " years old, who, on September 10,
1903. was killed near the United States
arsenal by Private Dowd, acting under In
structions from Lieutenant Drury.
Crowley and a number of other boys are
said to have beenraught stealing Inside the
arsenal groands, were pursued by soldiers
and Crowley was shot after he had gotten
a considerable distance outside the arsenal
The question at Issue Is: Has a United
States soldier the authority to kill a man
outside of government property who la sus
pected of a crime within government prop
erty? Ever since the killing of Crowley the case
has been discussed by legal and military
experts all over the country.
Many maintain that as the alleged crime
of Crowley's was committed within govern
ment property the soldiers were Justified In
pursuing the man as they did.
Before he died, however, Crowley made a
statement In which he denied .he was In
side the arsenal, but claimed Instead that
he was sitting on a doorstep, became
frightened at the sight of the onruahlng
soldiers and ran. Ha said he heard a com
mand to bait, that he did halt, but was
For days following the shooting the civil
and military authorities had frequent
clashes. The police officials and coroner
insmeed that as th shooting occurred out
side the government property tli prisoner
belonged to th?m. Lieutenant Drury took
a different view of the matter, however,
and the civil authorities dared not force
their demands by entering the arsenal.
The case was finally taken to the United
States supreme court, where It was de
cided to turn the men over to the civil
authorities and end the question for all
time. Lieutenant Drury and Private Dowd
surrendered and were later released In the
sum of $6,000 ball.
The prisoners are being defended by the
government, and United States Attorney
Dunkle is their counsel.
The commonwealth la represented by Dis
trict Attorney Harry Geohrlng.

of civil and military attorneys were In attendance.
