Tlie most loathsome and repulsive of all ^^^?9^_W ?^i. _f

most degrading of all human diseases is Contagious Blood Poison. The
serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes
through the entire body, Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little
ulcer, soon contarainai.es every drop of blood and spreads throughout the
whole system, Painful swellings appear in the groin., a red rash and
copper colored splotches break out on the body, the mouth aud throat
become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fail out j but these syinptoms
are inild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter
stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the
body, It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hldeous
ness, The deep eating abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show
the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon
this serpent disease tightens its coila and crushes out the life. The only
antidote for the awful virus is 3, S, S, It is naturo'm romody, com
posed entirely of vegetable jngredients, S, S. S,
destroys every vestige of the poison, pnrifies the
blood and removes all danger of transmitting the
awful taint to others, Nothing else will do this.
