all powerful blood-making, blood-oleans

the purest, safest, and most effectual
alterative available to the public. The
sciences of medicine and chemistry have
never produced a remedy so potent to

By its searching and cleansing quali
ties it purges out the foul corrtions
which contaminate the blood anduse
derangement and decay. It stimulates
the vital functions, restores and pre
serves health, and infuses new life and
vigor throughout the whole system. No
sunferar from any disease of the blood
need despair who will give AYa's
BAasutaPALL4 a fair trial.
It is folly to experiment with the nu
merous low-priced mixtures, without
medicinal virtues, offered as blood-purl.
fler, while disease becomes more irmly
seated. Arua's SBsa rLLA is amedi
sine of such concentrated curative power
that it is by far the best, cheapest, anJ
most reliable blood-purifier known.
Physicians know its composition, and
