Yoxxt Health is Good or Bad According
to the Quality of Your Blood.
Healthy, pure blood and a free circulation is the surest protection against the 'discomforts
and diseases of summer. It is a physical impossibility to be well unless the body is sustained
bj' strong, vigorous blood. All life's forces are kept up, and every organ, tissue and nerve is
dependent upon this vital fluid, and there is no such thing as health without a pure and
untainted blood supply. Good blood also regulates the temperature of the body by keeping
active and healthy the glands and pores of the skin, canning off with the perspiration the
impurities and poisons from the system, the cause of rashes and eruptions of various kinds, bad
complexions and red, rough skins, and preventing that overheated and riotous condition of the
blood that so frequently results in sun strokes and prostrations.
If j'ou have allowed your blood to become impoverished and run down, then a course of
S. S. S. will cleanse, purify and strengthen it, and build up your general health, thus putting
the system in the best possible condition to meet and ward off summer sickness.
S. S. S., being purely vegetable, every ingredient working in perfect harmony -with nature,
has been called Nature's Remedy. Its action upon the blood is gentle yet thorough, completely

LOUISVUXK, Kv., March 26. 1902.
For sc eral years I suffered with Chills
and Fcv er, caused by Malaria in my sys

would have a relapse. Finally jny physi
cian prescribed S. S. S. In all I took three
bottles, and they cnlrrelv cured me, and I
ha e ne er been troubled" since. I am sure
no other medicine could have given me so
complete and immediate relief, aud I can
not speak too highly of S. S. S. Jly partner

and permanently eradicating all germs or poisons, and at the same time its tonic effect upon
the general health is all that could le desired. S. S. S. gives you an appetite and good blood to
assist in the digestion and assimilation of food, and builds up and invigorates all the vital
powers. S. S. S. combines both purifying and tonic properties something that cannot be truth
fully said of any other remedy.

Gentlemen: Some two j.eais ago I
suffered a great deal, caused on account of
bad blood ; small rash or pimples broke
out over my body and kept getting worse
day by day for ov er a year. A doctor told
me that it wornd cost bne hundred dollars
lo cure me. I could not at that time spare
this amount, and seeinr; S. S. S. advertised
in the papers, and havrajr also heard it had
cured several people in this city, concluded
to try it. After using the medicine for
some time, taking in all six or seven bot
tles, I was entirely cured, and am very
jjlad to recommend it to all needini; a good
blood medicine. Yours respectfully,

AND LOSS OF APPETITE.
NASUVH.LK, Tenn,, March 30, 1902.
Gentlemen: For over two jears
suffered greatly from impure Jrfood, causing
me to feel debilitated and nnfit for work;
had no appetite and could get no relief
from doctors or medicines ot any kind,
until finally about seven years ago I was
persuaded to try S. S. S. I soon noticed a
change in my health for the better. I con
tinued its use, and at the end of three
months I was completely well, and my
appetite has been good ever since, and I
now weigh 250 pounds. I consider S. S. S.
the best blood medicine to be found any
where. Yours truly, "
