A Small Spot 2 Cancer! "It was merely a mole at first, and for a long time was so insignificant that I gave it no thought whatever." These words of a recent correspondent contain an accurate description of the first symptoms of the most violent and destructive cancers as they appear in nine cases out of ten. A slight scab, a small sore, a lump in the breast?a mere spot, harmless as they appear for a-time, have developed into cancers of the most dangerous and obstinate form. \ Cancer is becoming so prevalent that such symptoms as the above, which refuse lo heal and disappear under ordinary treatment, may well be regarded with suspicion. Being a blood disease, it is folly to expect Cancer to be cured by a surgical opera? tion. The knife never did and never will cure a blood disease, and every time it is re? sorted to, a life is threatened with sacrifice. The only known cure for this dreadful disease is S. S. S. (Swift's Specific), as is shown by the indisputable testimony of the many ...

Many of them go to church?many more than one would think until the number of churches is counted over and the size of the regular congregations noted. Yet aside from this there appears to be an air of "nothing to do." This may be accounted for by the fact that there really is nothing to do. If we walk we feel that we must do eb at random, as there Is noplnce to walk to. If we go on the cars we do so feelimz that at the other end cf the ride there will be found nothing more interesting than what we have left beind.
