FOR SKIN DISEASES
S. S. S. Clears Skin of Erup

Get it fixed in your mind that
skin eruptions, Scrofula, Eczema,
burning, itching skin, and all skin
diseases are due entirely to impure
and infected blood. If the trouble
was on the outside of the skin, by
simply washing and keeping it clean
you could obtain relief not even
ointments, lotions and salves would
be necessary. Agree with us in this
belief, and your trouble can be re-
abatement of your trouble, and
finally make you entirely well. Fifty
years ago S. S. S. was discovered
and given to suffering mankind.
During this period it has proven its
remarkable curative properties as a
Wood purifier and tonic, and has
relieved thousands of eases of dis
ease caused by poor or impure blood,
and chronic or inherited blood dis
eases. You can be relieved, but you
must take S. S. S. Take it if only

MAN IS KILLED
WHEN TRAN AND
Mike Finnert Is Victim of Ac
cident at Fatal Railroad
Crossing in Council
Mike Finnerty, 36 years old and
unmarried, was almost instantly
killed yesterday when struck by a
fast mail train on the Northwestern
railroad. He was driving a deliv
ery wagon for the Cronkelton gro
cery store and was struck when he
drove on the Avenue C crossing
without noting the approach of the
rapidly moving train.
The crossing is classed as one
of the dangerous ones of the city.
Residences and trees obscure the
view of the tracks and Finnerty was
still further handicapped by the
rain and mist which was falling at
the time. He was driving a two
horse team. The wagon was re
duced to wreckage and Finnerty
vas dying when picked up after
being hurled several yards by the
force of the blow.
One horse was instantly killed
and the other so badly hurt that
it had to be shot.
The train was going about 30
miles an hour, and the trainmen say
the bell was ringing and the whistle
had been sounded at the proper
stations. Coroner Cutler, who took
charge of the body, will hold an in
quest to fix the responsibility. It
is the second accident the Cronkel
tons have had at the same point. A
year ago an automobile delivery
wagon driven by George Decker,
was struck by a Northwestern fast
mail train and demolished, but the
driver escaped unhurt.
Mr. Finnerty was the brother of
Mrs. John D. Hannan, whose hus
band, former county auditor, was
killed in an automobile accident
a year ago on the Lincoln highway
He has been living at the home of
his sister, at 824 Seventh avenue,
and had been materially aiding Mrs
Hannan in providing for the family
of ornhaned children.
