So many people die from Cancer simply be
MEDE PIMPI cause tht.y do nut know just what the disease is;
lYlLliL rilfir LEdi they naturally turn themselves over to the doctors,
and are forced to submit to a cruel and dangerous
operation the only treatment which the doctors know for Canoer. The disease
iiroraptly returns, however, and Is even more violent and destructive than
rf. f. Cancer is a deadly poison in the blood, and an operation, plaster, or
other external treatment can nave no eiTeot whatever upon it. The cure must
cuuie from within U)S last vestige of poison must be eradicated.
Mr. Wm Walpole. of Walshtown, S. D., sayst "A

Cancer becoming at first' irritated, and then discharging
very freely. This gradually grew less and then discon
tinued altogether, leaving a small scab which foon drop

I what threatened to destroy my life once held full sway."
Positively the only euro" for" Cancer is Swift's Specific

because it is the only remedy which can go deep enough to reach the root of
the disease and force it out of the system permanently. A surgical operation
does not reach the blood the real sent of the disease because the blinxl can
not be cut away. Insist upon S. S. S. ; nothing can take its place.

The newspapers from every corner of
the nation bring the same old annual
spring moan. Only the grief appeal to
be growing a little more Inconsolable
each year, as the public become more
cognizant of the fact that bat! roads are
almost us unnecessary as they are un
pleasant and unprofitable. A whole
paper could be Oiled with ooBJplajjrta
like the following from the Decatur
"The country roads are now in a
worae condition than they have been for
a number of years past. It is simply im
posaible for those who have not at
tempted to drive over the roads to
realize what condition they are In, No
grain at all Is moving and the traffic of
the farmers is practically blockaded, A
few days ago an empty wagon was
stuck in the mad on the streets of Mon
tieello. and the roads outside of the vil
lage were even worse."
Or like this from the Ixitrobe (Pa.)
"The bad condition of the country
roads is known to all who travel them,
but our milkmen, who hava to travel
them early every morning, have the
most experience. As an example we
note the breaking of W. W. NiobohV
wagon while coming to town with milk
this morning. It is thought by some
that the lottom has (alien out of some
spots and wagon wheels should be '
Steen feet high to plow through them."
If the object lesson to be derived from
n Study of the "horrible example" real
ly counts for anything, the roads in

The citizens of Rolfe, la., woke up to
the fact that they were money loscra
because of the poor condition of their
streets and highways. They got to
talking, and from talking to working,
and a subscription paper good for $650
was obtained from the business men.
This was presented to the city council
und n similar umount voted from the
city treasury. This was supplemented
by liberal donations of team work by
the farmers. Gravel pits were bought
und opened, and on four leading roads
out of the city all winter a force olmen
has been hauling gravel. Itolfe will
have good roads hereafter, and people
from afar and near will go there to
trade because of it.

Andrew Carnegie states that he
knows of nothing in this country that
will compare less favorably with the
European countries than the public
roads in the United States. Only one
who has coached and traveled year aft
er year through Europe can estimate
the advantages that would flow from
similar roads in our own country. It
would really change the conditions of
the life in the rural and agricultural
districts. This is the kind ot work that
justifies the issue ot bonds If necessary
to secure it. It Is false economy to
lay such work.
