o BLOOD POISON
In no other disease is a thorough cleansing of the blood more necessary
than in Contagious Blood Poison. The least particle of this insidious virus
will multiply in the circulation and So thoroughly contaminate the blood
that no part of the body will be exempt from the ravages of this powerful
disease' Usually the first symptom ia a little aore or ulcer, insignificant in
itself, but soon the blood becomes ao contaminated that the mouth and throat
ulcerate, glands in the groin 'swell, hair and eye-brows come out, copper
colored spots appear on the body, and frequently sores and ulcers break out
on the Cesh to humiliate the sufferer. S. S. S. cures Contagious Blood Poison
by purify in; the circulation. It attacks the disease in the right way by going
down into the circulation, neutralising and forcing out every particle of the
poison, aud making this fluid pure, fresh and health-sustaining. The im
provement commences as soon as the patient gets under the influence of
B. S. S., and continuca until every trace of the disease is removed from the
blood, and the sufferer completely restored to health. Not one particle of
the poison ia left for future out-breaks after S. S. S. has purged and purified
the blood. Book oojh home treatment of this diseaae and any ruedical advice

Manr Come to Princeton,
There were comparatively few arrivals of
those invited to attend the funeral up to
noon. The town began take on a more
animated appearance about that hour,
when hundreds of persons from nearby
places began arriving early to tp the
funeral precession and get a gllmpte of
President and Mrs. Roosevelt.
Outside the Cleveland home, which
sianas in. one or tne prettiest rarts of
Princeton, there were no signs during the
morning of what took place this after
noon. The house stands far from the mott
frequented streets and few persons were
In tha vicinity. At the entrance to the
Cleveland grounds a policeman stood guarl
and only those known to him or vouched
by those In charge were permitted to enter
the grounds. r
Among those who applied for admission
was an elderly man who asked to be per
mitted to view the body of the former
president. He proved to ba "Tony" Leg
gett of Trenton, N. J., who for years was
Mr. Cleveland's companion on numerous
shooting expeditions. He was at ones ad

upon the face of his lifelong friend. He
came out of the house with tears stream
ing down his cheeks.
Body la Open t'nalcet.
Mr. Cleveland's body reposed in the open
casket near the front window of his bed-
room during the forenoon and was sur
rounded by marfy floral tributes. Among
the offerings wss the wreath sent by Presi
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt. A large wreath
of orchids wss received from the Friendly
Sons of St. Patrick. Another wreath mado
from the Ivy of the claaa of '68 on Nassau
Was among thoae placed near the casket.
Richard, the. elder son, upon returning
from a walk with Miss Rose Cleveland,
volunteered to assist those in charge of
the arrangements by unnlng errands about
the house. Esther," the other child here,
kept to her room and was not to be ssen.
The Cleveland team, a handsome p'alr of
dapple grays attached to the family surrey,
was kept busy during the morning makfng
