Dry Goods Dealers
Note Thrift Tendency
On Consumers' Part
Chioago Trihune-Omnha Bee Leased Wire.
New York, May U. Those in
touch with the dry goods trade are
not surprised to learn that mills are
receiving many cancellatoins. Lead
ers in both the wholesale and retail
irade admit the public has slowed up
buying,, and while they do not ex
pect the general public to don over
alls, they1 do expect an extended
thrift movement which is bound to
have its effect on trade in clothing
and other dry goods lines.
There is- general unsettlement in
the textile trade, due not so much
to accumulation of manufactured
stocks in quantity as to the greatly
inflated values of inventories and
prices is a weight which, in addition
to other matters, is regarded with
anxiety in the textile trade,
The silk situation causes anxiety.
With raw silk down from $18 a
pound to $10 a pound in a compara
tively short while, due in part to
overspeculation in Japan, coupled
with the slackening in demand here,
it is natural that big silk jobbers
have, been offering hugequantities at
prices which spell big losses to small
firms whicK have their inventories

You canitat boil water by
applying the heat to the top of
the vessel. 'You may possibly,
after so long a time, succeed in
making the water lukewarm,
but it will never get hot
enough to boil.
. uisoraers wnicn origi-
nate in the blood can be
f reached only through the
blood, and no amount of
X local treatment applied to
X the surface can be ex-
pected to do any real X
The same principle applies
to the attempt to get rid of
skin diseases by local applica
tions of salves, ointments, lo
tions, washes, etc., remedies
applied to the surface of the
skin, which can have no real
corrective effect whatever
upon the disease. Water can
not be boiled until every atom
has been thoroughly saturated
with intense heat, which can
be accomplished only by ap
plying it in the prosper way.
. So atso, there is a proper
way to successfully treat and
get rid of diseases of the skin,
and that is by getting in be
hind the millions of tiny germs
that cause the disorders, and
eliminate them from the
blood, thus going direct to the
source of the trouble, and at
tacking them at the , starting
Those who rely upon local
treatment such as ointments,
salves, lotions, washes, etc.,
which are applied to the sur
face of the skin, will never be
free from agonizing skin dis
eases, because they are going
about the treatment just back
wards. They are treating the
results of the disorder, and not
the disease itself. They are
attempting to boil water by
applying the heat in the
wrong place. '
These terrifying skin irrita
tions, eczema, tetter, boils,
pimples, etc., have their origin
in a disordered condition of
the blood. They come from a
collection of tiny germs which
get into the blod and multiply
by the million. Although
commonly called "skin dis
eases because they set up the
visible evidence of their dis
turbance on the surface of the
skin, all successful treatment
must come-through the blood.
This makes it clear why you
cannot expect any real sub
stantial relief from local rem
edies applied to the surface of
There is no danger of ever
.being afflicted with skin dis
eases as long as the blood is in
perfect condition. It is only
logical, therefore, that the
proper treatment for pimples,
blotches, Aores, boils, rough,
red, scalskin is to purify the
blood of the tiny germs that
cause these disorders.
When any of these symp
toms appear on any part of
your body you should take
prompt steps to rid the blood
of the germs which cause
them. And the one remedy
which has no equal as a blood
cleanser is S. S. S., the purely
vegetable blood remedy which
has. been on the market for
more than fifty years. S. S. S.
is sold by druggists every
where. Do not expect to be cured
of any form of skin disease by
the use of lotions, salves, oint
ments or other local treatment,
as such remedies cannot pos
sibly reach the source of the
trouble, which is the blood.
