Pearls of Thought.
No one should so fear being
egotistic as to ovoid the society of

those who refuse to see the truth,

Can Scirrhus Cancer be Cured?
This is a hard question to an
swer. Swift’s Specific has cured
thousands of cases of Skin Cancer,
and there have been many cases
of Scirrhus Cancer reported cured
by it. We do say that S. S. S. is
worth a trial in any case of cancer.
We append a statement from Miss
Green, of Tallapoosa, Ga.:
In 18841 had a small lump in
my left breast, which proved to be
a cancer. The first remedy I tried
was to have it burned off. This
did not cure it, for shortly after
wards it broke out again in amneb
worse form. I then consulted our
druggist, who advised me to try
Swift’s Specific (S. S. S.), and af
ter taking about one dozen bottles,
was completely cured, and my gen
eral health was greatly improved.
This has been over six years ago,
and my cancer has never appear

any way. I can cheerfully recom

any one suffering with cancer.

Two grizzly old girls got into a
Brooklyn street car the other day
and chatted playfully from oppo
site: sides of the' car. They -were
so artless and cunning, even at
their advanced age, and made the
time pass pleasantly.
“Our mutual friend—you know
who I mean—was down to see me
the other evening,” said . one, as
she giggled in a very amusing
manner. “I saw him out on tne
sidewalk. Of course I knew he
wanted to come in, bathe is so
boyish and I am so full o'f mischief
that I just let him stay out in the
cold a good long time. Then I
went to. the window and he picked
up courage to come in. I never
saw any one so smitten as he is.
Isn’t it ridiculous?”
The other girl giggled through
tis recital.and then entertained ns
with her. romance:
