Last Friday night a gentleman of
this city received intelligence that his

consequences he wen'lt to his rt'scue.
He rushed against the~ door, burled it
from its fastenings, and confronted
the guilty wretches who htad been hid

Iand drawn shutters. There he found

In Julv last I discovered that I had
contracted the most dreaded of all
diseases, blood poison. Upon the ree
ommedation of one who was in this
instance a friend in need, I took S. S.
S. and used lotion No. 1 according to
direcions. Its effects were speedy
ad effectual. In one month's time, to
onvince myself that I was cured, I
onsulted a prominent physician, and
after a most searching examination he
told me I was perfectly well. I feel
well, and know that I am vell. I can
produce others upon whom S. S. S.
has done the same thing, and who,
with me, will thank you for a remedy
which has cured us of a disease which
doctors so often fail to relieve.
