Posses Are Searching

still surrounds the strangs disappearance
of David Fahlherg. who suddenly dropped
out of sight last Tuesday night. Posses
are dally searching tho surrounding coun
try for the body of the missing man.
One theory is that Fahlherg went to his
barn und found a thief trying to steal a
team of hoises; that the thief ihot him
and fled, leaving his body lying on the
ground; that Fahlbaig soon partly re
gained his senses, wandered off In the
storm and perished. Ills cap, with blood
and hair sticking to It. was found on

WASHINGTON, Jan. .-Speaker Champ
Clark's speech at the Jackson day din
ner here, tonight was an appeal to all
those who are opposed to "standpatters"
and to "stai.dpat" policies to "stand
together, pull together and work to
gether." The only hope of the country
for progressive legislation, he declared,
lies In tle democratic party because the
"standpatters" nie In the majority
among the republicans. Referring to the
split of the republican party, the speaker
said It looked as though nothing short of
a miracle could bring the warring fac
tions together, but at the same time he
warned against depending for success
upon opponents' dissensions.
WiU Aid of ItlpobLcaus.
'Demmrnts desire progressive legisla
tion." said Mr. Ctarlt. "Independents
and divers republicans want it. Tho ma
jority of the American people favor It.
Tho only way to achieve it Is at the
hands of democrats. The Insurgent re
publicans would, no doubt, enact some
remedial legislation If theV could, but the
standpatters are In the majority In that
party and It looks as though they will
continue to dominate It Indefinitely. It
may be for years and It may bo forever.
Thy have control of the republican ma
chlno and they will run it over the In
surgents ruthlessly. The Independents,
having no separate party organisation,
wilt make tlnir Influence felt at the polls
by voting for those candidates who ap
pear to moat nearly approximate their
standard; but as they can entertain no
toasonablo hope ot remedial legislation
from the republican party so long as It
Is dominated by tho standpatters. It Is to
be hoped that they will give us their
aid and comfort by voting for demo
cratic! candidates this year. As tho in
surgent republicans can achieve nothing
except when working tn conjunction with
democrats they would most easily and
most certainly accomplish their purpose
by voting for democrats all along the line.
We are politically somewhat In the same
condition which wise old Ben Franklin
described himself and his compatriots to
be In when, after signing the Declara
tion of Independence, he exclaimed: 'Now,
wa must all hang together or we will
all hang separately.'
IVerd Many Votes.
"One thing Is clear as crystal," con
tinued the speaker, "In order to win we
must hold aTt the voters. w-e had In 1908
and draw to ua about 800, ow who were
against us then. Consequently It Is of
supreme Importance that wo enter the
Impending contest thoroughly united In
purpose, in principle, In policy and In
'The results of tho November elections
demonstrate conclusively that the repub
lican campaign canard which haa been
overworked many times to the effect that
democratlo supremacy breeds panics has
been exploded forever, for the places
where national Issues and national lasues
alone wero considered were the very
places where democrats did the best. Thla
was notably the case In Massachusetts
and In Joe Taggart's congressional dis
trict In Kansas and In Dan V. Stephen's
district In Nebraska,
"On matters of principle there should
be absolutely no compromise even to se
cure and retain unity, but each and every
one should be willing to yield on non
essentials which are not matters of prin
ciple for the general good In the efforts
which we are making for better govern
ment. nenablleana Are Deutorallaed.
"The republicans se-oin to be utterly
demoralised and split to pieces It looks
as though nothing short of a miracle will
reunite them. It Is not, however, the
part of wisdom for us to rely for success
upon their dissensions, for they may acci
dentally get together. That their quarrels.
unless composed, will help us there can
be no question. Our chief reliance tor
suecewi Is to give to the people such, a
record for honest. Intelligent, courageous.
constructive statesmanship as to Convince
the country beyond the shadow of a doubt
that we are worthy of the continued and
enlarged confidence of the public. That
IS the stralghtest. plainest, shortest and
easiest road to complete success. Pur
suing that line o conduct, victory will
perch upon our banners, whether the re
publlcana patch up their differences or
not. We hold our own fortunes absolutely
In our own hands. Vet os not lose our
golden opportunity through overoonfl
dence or upon Ili-advUcd rellaace upon
Ihe quarrels and factional fights among
our opponents."

The combination to! healthful vegetable ingredients of which S. S. S. u
composed, makes it an especially desirable and effective remedy in the treat
ment of sores and ulcers of every kind. Since an impure condition of tht
blood is responsible for the trouble, a medicine that can purify the blood i.
the only hope of a successful cure; and it should be a medicine that not onlj
cleanses the circulation, but one that at the same time restores the blood tc
its normal, rich, nutritive condition. S. S. S. is lust such a remedy. It is
made entirely of healing, cleansinjj vegetable properties, extracted from na
ture's roots, herbs and barks of the forest and fields. It ha3-long bec:i
recognized as the greatest 'of all blood purifiers, possessing the qualities
necessary to remove every impurity in the blood. When t. S. S. has purified
the circulation, and strengthened and enriched it, 6ores and ulcers heal read
ily and surely, because they are no longer fed audkept oren by a continual
discharge into them of irritating disease-laden matterfrom theblood. S. S. S.
brings about a healthy condition of the flesh by supplying it with rich,
nourishing blood and makes a permanent and lasting cure. Book on Sorea
